Meh. I don't dislike lebron. I guess I might even admire him. He was immature with the decision but he's matured a lot more since the lost to the mavericks. Dude works really hard at his game and has improved upon his weaknesses so much it's become strengths. He never used to have a post game or a three and now he's very good at them. He's also a lot of fun to watch and I honestly don't see there being a large referee bias in favor of him despite all these conspiracy theories. For example refs almost never call fouls for him against hibbert so much that he had to develop a floater just for him.

Been a So FL resident for 15 years and a Heat fan almost all of those years. The Alonzo Mourning (schoolmate and class act) teams won me over, and I've stayed around for the ride ever since. Have a share of a pool of season tickets through my company since 2003, although this year I chose not to participate for the first time since then.

Alonzo was so underrated. or at least as much as a HOF player can be underrated. When you think about he went up against almost nightly, how he was undersized in all those matchups and yet still kicked ass, intimidating presence. In today's league he'd probably average about 30 pts a game. Such a nice guy too.

As a relatively young Nets fan (I'm in my early twenties), all I really remember of Alonzo Mourning is this...

that dunk was sick, perhaps best ever in the NBA

Vince is the best dunker of all time easily! Other dunkers have top10 he has top100 ;)

Alonzo was a shot blocker. He had no "ups". That's why VC laid that down on him.

spurs clinched #1 seed and home court throughout playoffs. is this spurs team, the oldest spurs team, the best one yet? its incredible to watch them enjoy this much success with such an old core of players.

It's great to watch them play, the best one? Dunno... they have to win first :P !

I'm curious to see how successful they'll be when Pop, Duncan, et al. retire but they seem set up to make a consistent run for years to come. Really admirable management

Teams going to suck once Pop leaves.

Won't make the playoffs suck or middle of the road suck?

Hopefully one of his assistants will be promoted to head coach

pop better than phil?

pop won coach of the year twice! twice! lmao if he doesnt win it this year. hornacek is getting consideration for doing what pop has done for the past 10 years: make a team play above its caliber by playing as a cohesive unit
post #14324 of 17996

He could be. It is hard to evaluate the work of the coach though, I think it's impossible if you are not a part of the team. Players can maybe do this to some extent if they played for both coaches who are being compared. Players have their personal biases though. It would interesting to hear what Robert Horry would have to say about this :)

post #14325 of 17996
Not as many rings but I do think he's a better coach. More consistent results with not as good players. Phil won 6 rings with the most talented individuals in the league that also fit really well into his system. Pop won 4 with a really varied cast changing his tactics to suit his players best.
