1 game doesnt prove the point though. He also has praised Jokic is a great player. Bottom line is I dont really care much for Byron's comments on players vs the his approach to the game. Phil was the ultimate [expletive] but he wasn't naive about where the game was headed. My frustration also doesnt even lie with Byron, more so the people that actually hired him and thought he was a great option.
Byron is the same coach that coached a team that lost 26 games straight.
And Doc Rivers lost 21 out of 22.
And Phil lost 7 in a row in Kobe's prime.
And Phil let a team come back from 3-1.
And Pop lost to an 8 seed as a 1 seed.
Circumstances matter bruh.
And nothing about the Byron hiring process suggested they thought he was great.
More like right for for Kobe.
Death stare proof.
