it sounds like you are though, regardless of how he got to those championships, he got them, the spurs have also been one of the model of consistency in the NBA.
and before you say well he had the General, TD , Parker and Manu, just cause you have great players dont always mean your going to get the job done.
not to mention the spurs ability to find these gems and make them play to their potential and fit in their system.
there is what? a handful of coaches you would take over him?
I know, I'm the bad guy for not hyping Pop and praising his every move.
I agree, very few coaches I'd take before him, but there are others I'd look at.
Everyone gives him credit, master tactician, so smartly rests his guys, lineups, rotations, adjustments, etc etc.
Well.......he was up 2-0 last year, lost 4 straight to Scott Brooks. Where the adjustments? Resting guys in November help? Had Homecourt advantage.
Year before that, he was a Manu miracle shot away from losing 4-1 to an 8 seed without Rudy Gay. He lost 4-2 with the Manu miracle. Had HC. Adjustments, rested vets?
2010, swept by Alvin Gentry. Another 4 straight L's. I forget who had HC. Maybe the Suns did.
Year before, 2 seed, HC, lost 4-1. Adjust, rest?
08, lost 4-1, again.
07, Horry hip check/suspension. They win that series without those suspensions?
2004, up 2-0, with HC, loses 4 straight. Adjust?
Lost 4-0 in 01, lost 4-1 in 2002. Master adjustments, rest? He had HC in BOTH series I believe.
Man, I dunno. He has titles, he deserves credit. But, that's A LOT of 0-4, 1-4 losses with homecourt and multiple hall of famers.
But I'm a hater for listing these facts I guess.
