Rick Carlisle beat him down as a 7 seed in round 1.
Scott ******g Brooks worked his *** over last season after spotting Pop 2 games.
And Phil, well Phil always worked Pop over real good.
None of those guys had LeBron, in his prime playing for them. (Phil being the closest) I think coach Spo will do just fine these next 2 weeks. I don't give a **** how much tape Pop watches, or how often he rests his soft *** players in December, none of that matters now.
Phil Jackson got swept by Rick Carlisle in the first round coming off of back to back championships, soooooo???...greatness is measured by longevity, something the spurs clearly have
It was the second round, coming off back to back to back trips to the Finals.
Pop been to 2 straight Finals? Coached a long damn time, multiple hall of famers under his wing the entire time, 2 straight Finals runs?
Phil, Spo, Sloan, Brown, Scott, have all done it in the time Pop has been coaching.
Say what you want about Pop, but he's undefeated on a championship level
Yup. He beat an 8 seed, a Nets team coming in for their second straight June run, a Pistons team on their second straight June run, and a pathetic Cavs team with 1 player.
Let's just go with championship level, not actually examine that level or anything.
This series is BY FARRRRRRRR the toughest matchup Pop/Duncan will have had. And Duncan is 37 so that excuse will get used quick when it plays out in the Heat's favor. If they win it, then by all means, they will be due their credit for this one. Those other 4, like one of them does anything for me, the beat of the 05 Pistons is a solid beat. Titles are titles, I know, they have their 4 and should be very happy and proud to have them, but to elevate them up like those 4 are the greatest 4 titles ever is a bit misleading. The 2011 Mavs title is more impressive than any of the Spur titles, nobody hypes Carlisle or Dirk as these unstoppable machines like how the Spurs are being hyped.
