Re: Rondo's gone; Should Doc be replaced by Jeff Van Gundy?

Acie, posters would respect your opinion more if you ever presented a balanced and objective view. You fail to give Doc any credit for players who were developed like Gomes, BBD, Perk, Mike Miller, Bradley, Magette, Big Al, etc. but you blame him for everything that is wrong with Rondo. If he personally and solely made Rondo the egotistical monster we often see, then give him credit for the positives, too.
and what about the results of the team? By everyone's account, this team was dead in 2010 but would have won if Perk and Ray hadn't gotten hurt In game 6 against the Lakers. They would not have gotten to game 7 against Miami when both Green and Wilcox have heart surgery and only lost because of a historic performance by Lebron. With a trade of Perk, Shaq injured, JON injured, they still exceeded expectations. This year they lose Rondo, Sully, and Barbosa and they keep winning...with Danny giving him no big man. Do you think maybe it takes SOME COACHING ABILITY to do all that? Our roster of an old Garnett and an old Pierce and a bunch of role players has no Durant, Kobe, CP3, Howard, Wade, Lebron, or Carmelo. But this coach succeeds anyway.
I hate Doc not starting Green and him not controlling Rondo. he's not perfect. But, he obviously also has great success and many players, in addition to PP and KG, LOVE to play for him.
thank goodness Danny is the GM and not you. He knows what a good coach he has.
