I still think with or without there still a decent chance at 8th seed so yea but I dont think we will be doing anything special if he was. This team is horrible. So many problems with this roster and its way more than the coach.

No. The transition to the triangle would be a slow and painful one that would cost us games. Its really too late to consider this

Yes.

And more importantly we would actually stand a chance.

Heat should have won, but somebody had the worst 4th quarter performance for any superstar ever.

Not sure bringing in Phil at this point in the season would make a whole lot of difference for this season. Would we be better for the future? Yes. But not this season.

Players don't have to be in their primes to win championships.

Coaches don't have primes...they're COACHES.

Pau Gasol is GONE

Not even 1 freaking game when you had home court advantage?

When they blew that huge lead in game 1, that was the beginning of the end. It was so painful watching that team choke up such a comfortable lead and then being dismantled by that Mavericks squad.

Does it really matter? Team was exhausted after so many finals appearances and the players' hunger just wasn't there. Its not all on Phil. Either way, he has 11 rings.

Heat should have won, but somebody had the worst 4th quarter performance for any superstar ever.


The team that actually played TEAM ball deservedly won. And this is about Phil, four playoff games do not make up his coaching career.

If we magically got Phil Jackson AND learned how to execute triangle properly overnight, then I would say yeah we would.

Not questioning the resume'. Questioning if his mind was actually there. It's not fair to put it all on the players if we lose, then give the coach the credit when we win. Same goes vice versa.

And it does matter. It's a SWEEP. Not 1 game...nada. Zilch.
