I read something a few weeks back that said Pop basically gave LMA free reign to do what he wants on offense. Iso, live in mid-range, etc but when the other guys were running the offense, he should try to do the same also - basically what the tweet said, to stop overcoaching him on offense. Pop gave him the freedom on offense IF he consented to playing defense within the scheme and playing defense well / hard.
Imagine if we had Pop.
Coaches who aren’t anywhere near the Mount Rushmore level would of told the GM to trade him. This guy, who’s in the GOAT convo with PJax, said maybe I should change.
I’d give him everything - title, gigantic salary, final say all decisions - if he ever was ok with leaving SAS. He probably wouldn’t put up with Dolan or the media though.
