people always say that about nba coaches, because what nba coaches do is so hard to quantify. as a clips fan, i'd say pop is a big part of what has kept the spurs in the game, even when they haven't played well. his roster rotations force the clips to make moves they wouldn't rather make. and his hack-a-jordan in game 4 was, i thought, the biggest single factor in the game. the clips had been running with the home crowd behind them and he killed both of those.
