I mean, as long as you have LeBron on your team you might sneak in a championship with a mediocre coach

Lue isn't the only black championship winning coach on these lists.


Which ones are you talking about? I'm just looking at OP's list

edit: Just remembered Doc on the Celtics.

His postgame comments where he basically challenged everyone to fight him over the Booker stat padding game says enough.

Somebody is bitter.
Hes a coach standing up for his player. Good for him. He loves his players and the players love him. Most importantly hes got the respect of the entire locker room.
He has managed to get a team of teenagers to bond together and give 110% every night, and the development of our players is evident in their obvious improvement throughout the season.

come to think of it, is there any good black coaches?


I think what is clear from this analysis is that being a good player has really little correlation on being a good coach. In the past, people have pointed out that there is some injustice given that the proportion of African American coaches in the NBA is far lower than the proportion of African American players in the league. Now, we realize that it is not the proportion of African American coaches that is an anomaly but 100% it is the proportion of African American players.

In other words, African Americans are better than most at playing basketball. However, in terms of coaching, there is no intrinsic advantage to any one race. Accordingly, it should be the case that there are more white coaches compared to African American coaches given that whites are majority in this country. So there is no injustice here. If there were, then you would see most African American coaches being the best (akin to most African American players being the best). And there is too much data to suggest that this is indeed not the case.

Dwayne Casey even though he gets a lot of flack.

Nat McMillan. IMO


Fizdale looks like he's pretty good. Ty Lue gets a lot of flak despite winning the crown in his on,y season.

Looks at this thread

i was lambasted for not including Jason Kidd, and Fred Hoiberg.

Look at these coaches working now though

you guys need to take your glasses off

these black coaches are terrible

(it has nothing to do with there race, but the 5 coaches in my opinion that are the worst are all black)

these guys prove it every game, especially Doc

Talk about an obvious racist thread, lol. OP didn't even make an attempt to hide his obvious agenda. People said the same thing about Erik Spoelstra when he was winning championships. Like there has ever been a coach to win a championship without great players.

I don't ever recall any non white coaches ever getting praised on here as great coaches or having a great basketball mind. It's like the "black QB" thing in the NFL. Some folks want so badly to believe white folks are more intelligent than non white folks. Talk about being insecure. It's not a good look. You guys should stop. You're only making yourself look bad.

But threads like this are good in the sense that it let everyone see how many racist folks are out there. And for the record I'm not saying those five coaches are the best of all time or anything like that. But again the OP made no attempt to hide his obvious agenda so I'm calling him out on it.

black coaches are usually mediocre because they are former players without the experience of career coaches like Brad Stevens or Pop. A lot of former players step in thinking they are going to command respect and win tons of games but get destroyed by the guys who spend years doing the homework.

You should be able to question a coaches ability without being labeled a racist.

Jason Kidd one of the more scrutinized coaches in this thread by the majority of the posters, that i refused to include in my top 5 worst coaches, because i didnt beleive he was a bad coach but i got riduculed for not having him on there

Jason Kidd The God looks like one of the best coaches ever out there in these playoffs with a young roster.

the other guy people clowned me for not having on there Fred"The Mayor" Hoiberg is up 2-0 on the number 1 seed in the east

so tell me how you guys who had these two guys as a top 5 bad coaches ?

but im the bad guy/ the racist because i have 5 Horrific coaches who prove time and time again they are terrible

how is it a racist thread, simply because i got 5 black coaches?, they are all fukin terrible coaches and they keep on proving it

I didnt include Jason kidd who alot of posters on here told me should be there, i think hes a terrific coach and look what hes doing right now by the way, another guy fred hoiberg wasnt on my top 5 worst coaches and look what hes doing

so whos wrong?

all coaches i said suck ...suck go figure, hasnt nothing to do with them being black , until it was brought up on here, is it my fault all those coaches(who happened to be black) are horrible coaches, who prove to be terrible even though they have superstar players? while other coaches manage with mediocre talent?
