In response to Karllost's comment:
I think this is Docs 15th year in coaching... 1 nba title, 2 finals appearances
Doc has proven his ability to alienate non stars on his teams. His substitution guesses are hilarious and follow no pattern or strategy. He allowed the super ego'd, talent challenged head case PG to take control of his team and run it into the ground, taking chucnks of seasons off, refusing to play defense which in turn helped accelerate wearing KG down.
Other than DA pulling together a bunch of self coached HOFers, ala Pat RIley in Miami, assisted greatly by Thibs, the only brains behind the teams system... Docs coaching record is atrocious
With the talent his Celtic teams had since the Big 3 deal, we should have had 2-3 titles.. Docs an albatross to any team stupid enough to fall for the hype...and thats just what it is.
first of, it wasnt doc messing up his knee in 2010. had perk stayed upright for game 7, no doubt celts win. had kg stayed up right in 09, we likely compete for another ring. doc always gets the most he can from his teams. no way with fully stacked clippies he aint going at least to finals. if close to even, he's beating pops and definitely okc! did anyone have us going to game 7 his penultimate year with the heatles?
on every level minus COACHING, we were da underdogs yet that team scrapped for doc constantly came up with the right game plans and in-game adjustments. again, give us a healthy shaq, jo and who knows.. as i recall, he wasnt pickin them groceries. look at what a great job he's done in that area. ur naive if u think that part of the reason both Ray+kg came to boston wasnt because of DOC. they knew from the likes of Grant hill and Mcgrady what kind of coach and motivator he was. he didnt just get jabro dumb after winning coach of da year.
u put doc in minny with kg in his prime and they are getting to some finals.. period! some coaches are perfect to take mediocrity and make it average (lenny Watkins thats you).. others like Phil and RED and Doc, take good and make it GREAT! and at worse, dont ever make you worse. mediocre may get less medioce but u aint getting horrible esp in fight and bite. doc like phil doesnt suffer fools.. u get him high IQ guys and kaboom! ur in the game.. how many ring does Belichick have the last 10 years? oh yep, as much as DOc since 2007 season.
you tellin me he's not far and away the best coach in NFL? lots go into titles incl LUCK and health! when has doc ever lost a playoff series as the FAVORITE (unlike the pats, pops and many of his elite peers)? get him the weapons, make him the fave (like Phil) and u aint gettin upset by noone, but can pull off a few underdawg upsets as well! enough...
