You guys criticizing Doc Rivers and loving Brad Stevens will be the first guys calling for Stevens head after three losing seasons.
I said it now, January 1st 2014.
Book it. It will be happening in 2-3 years. You will all turn on him and being having similar complaints about Stevens.
I won't turn on Stevens. It didn't take long to tell he really knows basketball. My question is; Will the players turn on him? They shouldn't but the NBA has always been a players league. Managing veteran egos is what Doc was best at. His bench skills is what I often questioned.
Exactly........I'm not going to turn on him either. Doc is an elite baby sitter......like Phil Jackson.......able to wipe three butts with a single smile. ....handler of the diva s...aka Howard's , Melos and Kobe's ., D wades and such . Lakers forums are already laughing at Doc , not really being all that better than Vinnie for the Clips .......we knew this all along. Doc is a YES MAN for the stars.
The big names are NOT many times the best coach..... Look what Vogel an unknown given a shot could do at Indy.
The best deal is to stay away from te D Will , Melo, Howard coach killers.......let them stay on the Lakers and Nets.
