Yes Ken, Coach Jackson turned from a coaching genius to a idiot overnight. Yes lets blame Coach Jackson.
I didn't say that. I'm as big a Phil Jackson fan as anyone, but sometimes even great coaches have seen better days. He has to work with what he's got and what he's got is the most versatile, long, agile, smart, athletic group of basketball players in the NBA. Can he instill toughness into this group or are they just who they are? The reason I bring up Avery Johnson is because he took a run and gun, soft offensive minded team, and taught them how to play defense. I know he got nowhere in the playoffs, but either did Doc Rivers until last year when he preached and taught defense from the beginning of camp. I'm simply throwing out some food for thought that is backed with some intelligent reasoning, unlike someone else on here who is simply throwing out one-liners that lack any substance whatsoever simply to establish a new reputation. pffft.
