Who are the top 5 worst coaches in the league 

Post#1 » by JudBuchler » Tue Mar 28, 2017 1:08 am

In your honest opinion?

1. Alvin Gentry , This guy has had Anthony Davis and all start caliber PG jrue holiday , even now with Cousins the team is garbage and has been all of gentrys tenure there.

2. Nate Mcmillan , A talented roster from top to bottom, yet every time they play it looks a mess, they have a very pedestrian record. this guy is not a good coach

3. Doc Rivers , Hes made the clippers a bad team, this was a perenial top 3 team in the league and ever since hes been there its been downhill and choking. the guy is a pure idiot head coach, an even worse GM

4. Tyron Lue, he won with Lebron - Irving And Love all healthy and playing, the cavs are playing terrible basketball right now, If it was anyone else theyd be axed but its Lebrons Buddy and someone Lebron can bully

5. Earl Watson, Pheonix suns are not progressing at all, extremely talented young players but no movement or progression at all.


Honarable mention - Coach for Orlando (Although i suspect tanking ) Fizdale in memphis , Coach for Charlotte , Stan van gundy (Although that roster reeks)

How Alvin Gentry keeps getting coaching gigs is beyond me.

Agree with Alvin Gentry--even pre-cousins, the pelicans have no business being a lottery team.

Jason Kidd shouldn't even be a coach IMO. I think he'd be a better personality on screen and dissect the game that way.

Doc Rivers is a good coach and players love and respect him. His roster just can't get it done. Those guys aren't good fits next to each other.

Your descriptions of Tyronn Lue and Doc Rivers couldn't any more wrong.

You spelled "Fred Hoiberg" wrong.

Yes, Hoiberg has to be here. The guy is clueless, and has no respect

Doc the GM kills Doc the coach. He is above average as a coach.

I'm inclined to agree with this list except for Earl Watson and Tyronne Lue who haven't been around long enough.

Based on Lue being gifted the NBA champs, he does seem like a pretty mediocre coach going forward if I had to predict. I don't see how he has been any better than Spoelstra so far. If anything, he appears to hold the Cavs talent back from consistently winning despite having the superior talent, similar to the way Spoelstra held the Heat back from winning more titles if they had an actual good coach.

And Earl Watson isn't fair to judge at this point because a quarter of the Suns roster are teenagers.

Doc Rivers does less with more. Nate McMillan is in his 13th season as head coach and has only made it past the 1st round once. Alvin Gentry in 13 seasons has had a winning record just 3 times, 54-28, 29-21, 18-13.

Yeah it's crazy how it seems like everyone who was a part of that Pacers 2-year ECF run just had horrible turns in their career

Frank Vogel - leaves a sinking ship for an even faster sinking ship

Paul George - breaks leg for Team USA. Never seemed to be the same player as before. Maybe he's just checked out of Indy idk

Roy Hibbert - never the same player after 2014. almost out of the league now.

David West - joins Spurs to win ring. Doesn't even make conference finals. Leaves to Golden State, wouldn't be surprised if he misses out on a ring again.

Lance Stephenson - out of NBA. Will probably be playing overseas soon

Evan Turner - somehow he gets a 70 million dollar contract but he is still Evan Turner. No way does this guy ever become a valuable player to have on your team

George Hill made off the best by going to Utah, and by all accounts will get paid very well this year

I have no intention to make this about race but did you miss any of the African American coaches in the league in that list? lol To me the Bulls coach is the worst coach in the league. Any list he is not included is invalid.

edit. I see you missed Casey. :lol:
