Doc has always been a little overrated but that 4th quarter meltdown is on the superstar duo as much as anyone.

It is hard to establish a system with no playmakers and with your main stars being an iso player (Kawhi) and a glorified 3+D guy (George). Just like it was hard to build a system around an iso guy (Durant) and a low bb iq playmaker (Westbrook). Just like Stevens couldnt build a good system with Kyrie. Just like the Nets will also run into the same issue if they dont get someone to run the offense. Just like the Sixers got swept because they have no perimeter guy to playmake. Its not the coach but the roster construction.

Doc had the Point God on his team for 4 years and still failed in the playoffs every year.


Well they didnt have a scorer back then. You need both. Prime Paul+ Kawhi+ good roleplayers would have been enough.

Kawhi has won his titles and finals mvps. Seems like he went to Cali to smoke weed, bang chicks and enjoy the weather. If winning was important, and high iq was important, he wouldn't have left the Spurs or Toronto.

I would also get a sign-and-trade for Trez made. Do your best to reload draft picks for a few years. I still don't know why the Clippers took those contracts deals too, they could end up completely gutted. Though with the New Arena and ideally a total rebrand, the team will be extremely attractive.

If you guys are trading Lou I hope Danny Ainge is calling because we're going to trade some of our picks this year and he's a great fit for a bench that has little scoring punch.

He offered a late first for Bertans this year and tried to get Lou a few years ago at the deadline.
The greatest movie bet of all time:

"I want the Celtics to cover, I want Celtics halftime, I want Garnett points and rebounds."

I lost the bet so I Hate Truth18

You have no proof that Dantoni would have won. Doc did win and that's the difference.


Larry Coker won a national title at Miami. Winning a title as a coach doesn't automatically mean that you are good. Doc and Larry Coker both suck. There is no way that 08 Boston squad should have gotten pushed to 7 games in the first round by Atlanta and pushed to 7 in the 2nd round by Cleveland. That's such garbage coaching.

I didn't know they docked points off coaching for going 7 games with a team in its first year together. :crazy:
