He got to the finals though. If his X's and O's were "terrible" he wouldn't have gotten to the NBA finals. Also, people like to use wins for evaluating head coaches, but that goes out the window when it comes to Brooks I guess
Playing Perkins at any given time is a bad move to me but his success with playing perkins suggest it's the right move. 60 and high 50 win seasons, recent finals appearance, etc.
lenny wilkins is the winningest head coach in NBA history if we go by wins alone
his offense is terrible, especially with the pieces he has.
perkins has a time and a place to be useful (even though he is literally one of the least productive players in the league), but starting him against MIA and going down double digits early in every game, all while refusing to change your lineup and having a befuddled look on your face is inexcusable.
he is a good teacher and motivator, but like i said his game management and strategies are fundamentally flawed
