People still measure individual success with rings in a team sport? It's usually the standard thing to bring up to support an argment but it's not the whole argument.
I never considered Phil Jackson a great coach and the guy has like 10 or 11 rings. The guy was never tested. He took a smooth ride in coaching star studded teams.
Now that's not saying Pop isn't because he's head and shoulder's above any coach in the league but Doc took a strong second for me (and that is not a bad thing at all).
Doc has been tested. He's been through it all. You can count on the guy when we are down and not out (that's why I still have faith in this team this season). All because of Doc.
If all these coaches you guys are now raving about in favor of Doc, were stuck with the team and bad luck of injuries Doc was stuck with last year or in 2009 or in 2010, many of them would've cracked and I highly doubt many of them would've done a great of a job Doc did. The man made something out of nothing for us.
I'm not about to turn my back on this team and I'm not about to turn my back on Doc. He has earned his stay here and you know Danny must've seen something majority of us are not seeing to say he would ride with Doc no matter what.
The guy stuck by us when we barely had any chance to make it at all and he made something out of pretty much nothing.
He chose to come back and coach when he really didn't have to (considering our state). And because of that, KG came back. And because of that, Paul came back. And because of that, we're able to get Terry when Judas turned his back on us (even though Terry has been atrocious so far but our a** wasn't out after Judas left).
It's not all rainbows and sunshine at the moment. As a matter of fact, it's probably the worse we've gotten in years but if I've learned one thing over the years of me being a Celtic, it's that to never ever ever ever count this team out. Not a team that still has KG, Rondo, Pierce, and Doc. I still believe (with the necessary trade) we'll turn things around and rise to the top again, or we die trying.
Doc stays. He's our coach
