Thread: NBA playoffs

    Re: NBA playoffs



    Phil has chased down great rosters. Hes enough to take a talented roster over the top, but i dont think hes necessarily an all time great coach that can make subpar team overperform. Pop seems to always get more out of less. They consistently pick late and find good players in the 2nd round. Could be their GM, who i also think plays a big part in that, but i think Pop knows how to coach players up better than just about anybody.

    Re: NBA playoffs

    I've always felt Phil Jackson was the best coach ever in any sport... 11 titles doesn't come because of luck. That said, ESPN did one of their famous 'lists' a couple years ago and had Rex Ryan over Jackson. That's one reason why I just don't put any energy into top 100 players or any other opinion lists, they're just made to get a reaction.

    Pops has done a masterful job so far frustrating the hell out of Miami, but to me, it has been boring. They just can't come out of their system and I see why

    I gained more respect for Phil his last 2 championships than any of the previous 9. although he didnt have 2 HoFs those were still ridiculously deep teams with talent but by far his best actual coaching, imo.

    Parker is playing tonight. I don't think it's going to matter but these games have been so unpredictable... anything is possible

    Jackson doesn't get enough credit for juggling the egos he's had to deal with. It's easy to say that he's had talented teams. However, Jordan, Pippen and Rodman? That's a lot to handle. Shag and Kobe in the same locker room had to be a lot to handle.

    If it were just about talent. Miami should be on their way to their third title. If you were to ask if they would be with Jackson at the helm, I think the answer would be a unanimous yes.

    He just wrote a book and I am going to try and read it this summer. I read part of it where he compares Jordan to Kobe and it's very interesting. Jordan came from a blue collar family, worked hard, hung out with the guys, played cards, smoked cigars. Kobe's dad was a professional athlete, always had nicer things, kept to himself, ate salmon and sparkling water.. I bet it's a good read.

    I think this is the night that the Spurs hand the Heat their first back to back losses in the playoffs but I could be wrong.

    I mean, seriously, Pippen is my favorite player of all time, but the man had an enormous ego. Then, you put Rodman in there with it?

    I'm amazed he got Shag and Kobe to stay together as long as he did.

    If it is, this series will officially have one foot in the grave.

    Probably. No wonder Kobe wants Phil back so bad, Phil provided good shit.

    True, but in that case he would have got Kobe and Shag to stay together longer.

    Good point. Maybe Shaq just wanted to show the world he didn't need Kobe or the Lakers.

    That's one thing I just don't get about the nba. How can you shot fake, get the defender in the air, then jump into him to draw a foul?
