    Whether you like or dislike what Doc does in any given game, he remains the third best coach in Celtics history.  And if you'd like to go back to the days of Rick Pitino, Chris Ford, Jimmy Rodgers . . . well, there's not a lot I can say to you.

    you are way off to list Doc as the 3rd best Celtics coach ever. ahead of him, in order:

    1. Red

    2. Bill Russell

    3. Tommy Heinsoln

    4. Bill Fitch

    5. KC Jones

    Should he remind them to tie their shoes and pee at halftime?

    Doc reminds of of myself when I was 12 screaming at the TV to block out and pass it. 

    I posted a couple weeks ago all I ever hear Doc say in huddles is the obvious...we need a stop, we need a basket....  I heard Pop on Tv the other day...what a difference, actually talking strategy and showing different looks etc.

    As far as Doc being mentioned as an all-time coach for the Celts.. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    I was taken aback a bit but what I heard him say yesterday regarding offensive rebounding. He said that "the older generation will get it eventually, that" (paraphrasing now) it's more important to get everyone back on D than to try to get offensive boards because of the athleticism of the players today. If you give them any opening, they can just fly up the court and get an easy basket.

     

    I thought about it for a bit and I'm sure the idea has merit, but I'm also sure that there is a middle ground that can be reached, and the extra boost that an offensive rebound and "extra few points" can give a team has to factor in at some point. Also, if you do not get the rebound, that means that at least one member of the opposing team is still up the court with you, which means that you should have an even chance to be able to hustle back on defense regardless, not to mention the fact that by pressing the boards you may actually be able to force the opponent to keep more players at their own basket, rather than flying up the court.

     

    Not that you were necessarily talking about offensive boards but there it is.

    Yes, I've heard him say, "Everyone on the glass" He also has taken players out of games for not blocking out See Jared Sullinger early in the year agasint the nets. 

    Finally the Celtics are one of the best defensive rebounding teams in the league. They don't offensive rebound, but that is by choice in order to get back on Defense.

    Doc does not believe offensive rebounding is important.

     

    John Wooden uses to say, "assume every shot is going to be missed and go for the rebound."

    Of course John Wooden was the greatest basketball coach of all time.



    Yes, and the game has changed since he coched college ball. Vince Lombardi wasn't interested in the passing game at all as an offensive coach. He would have to evolve his postion today.

    Kirk, The Guilty party was Kevin Garnett who left his man to help with the drive to the basket.  Garnett does that often. He is one of the great help defenders the game has ever seen. 

     

    If KG doesn't rotate the hornets might have just one the game with the first shot instead of the second.

    Check the replay. Uncle Jeff was boxing out Ryan Anderson and KG already had rebounding position after the first shot. But he didn't box out Anthony Davis.

     




    right!

    Kirk  Doc does all the time and has been great at motivating players. KG had a mental lapse thats not on Doc.  Do we really have to remind a H.O.F who is in top to in points and top 15 in rebounds and one of the greatest Defensive players of all time to box out?

    Because his team never does it.

     



    so the Celtics "never" block out and by this you know that Doc "never" tells them to.

     

    What are you talking about?
