In response to Karllost's comment:
Hustle wasnt there... jogging back on defense, The old guys cant do it all the time but Doc will keep riding them whether they have it that night or not.
JG started off poorly then heated up...BAM, Doc yanks him. I know, I know, all the players praise Doc... I guess hes untouchable
Doc's got a history of performance and that gets him the benefit of the doubt in my book (and evidently Danny's, too). Through injuries, trades of big men, new players, and guys who have contributed nothing from the bench (like Murphy, Sasha, Arroyo, etc), Doc got to ECF's and NBA Finals and 1 championship. So, he gets the benefit of the doubt.
We'll get a better evaluation after we see how the team comes together over a full season of his tutoring.
Theres an old saying .."Cant argue with success".. so you have a point... however, you must acknowledge Rondo's man up defense is poor and mainly due to his lack of effort and determination... its been going on for years but he apparently gets a pass.. I cant help pointing that out (among other things) and expressing my opinion..
Things like this form my opinion... I guess some people can credit the teams success to Doc, others to the players etc... Heck, in a team game its sometimes hard to make distinctions so easily.
