The only thing that makes me scratch my head is Pat Ewing. Does he not want to be a head coach? He paid his dues on and off court. It's not a race thing because Kidd and Fish got jobs right away.

There is a Center bias in the NBA. Big man bias really.

Kevin McHale is the only big man coach in the NBA.

Thunder just have problems closing.. Each of those 3 Ls the thunder were in it at the end and started doing dumb things

Not to take anything away from those teams because harden, derozan and rose all came up big.. But the thunder didn't help themselves
I think there's a problem with their D

They don't have a defensive specialist

They have Robersom to replace Thabo

Waiters and Westbrook don't have the composure to run plays down the stetch and control the game.

The end of close thunder games is always hero ball from Westbrook and KD

Theres a bias for PGs as coach

Because they more familiar with running plays and the overall game

Teams hire assistants to help coach big men with footwork, posting up, boxing out, Etc

Its we well written article, but I don't know that its accurate to say that black head coaches are disappearing from the NBA.

You got -

Doc, who is also the GM for the Clippers.
Byron
Fish
J-Kidd
Gentry
Casey
Hoillins
Sam Mitchell (granted, he's only the HC now because Flipped passed, but still)

When you consider that there are only 30 NBA head coaching jobs available, 8/30 doesn't seem that terrible to me and doesn't suggest black coaches are disappearing.

I feel like the Warriors come playoff time will just be too much of a machine for everyone else. Okc, SA, LAC, and Hou have too many questions for me to have faith in them. Mostly how does new pieces work with the pieces from last year on those teams.

Plus Steph seems like he wants to just obliterate every 3 point record that his name is not next to.

I'm concern a bit, a bit, on the Wolves. But I feel like giving them a month or two pass b/c of Flip's passing. It just has to be a gut punch like no other to be there and he's not walking around anymore. But I'll hold off judgment until the new year.

Right. And I don't think any real fan of the NBA would say either of those guys was fired unfairly. Plus, Monty was replaced by another black coach and Shaw got replaced by a long-time, highly regarded assistant, who you could say was unfairly fired from his previous job. Malone was a good hire for the Nuggets, regardless of race.

I suppose. But I'm not sure that the fact there isn't is the result of race-based bias. There's a lot of factors at play.

I've read this as well, he has the knowledge but he just doesn't communicate well.

What teams are you guys favorites to watch so far this season aside from the typical star studded teams?

I've enjoyed watching Orlando, Detroit and Portland so far. Young squads with a lot of talent at every position IMO.

If the lack of black coaches was a trend that's existed for years and not a result of many recent firings then sure.

The article itself admits there's been a decent amount of them for pretty much the past decade and beyond.

I feel like most people wouldn't even know who he was if he didn't get stepped over

Do you feel like your team's old school build is no longer a factor in today's NBA where athleticism and perimeter play are key?
