post #14311 of 18042

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 #14321 of 18042

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 #14322 of 18042
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.

dont get me wrong. phil is one of the best, if not the best. i just fucking love Pop. i used to be indifferent towards him but the last couple of years has really made me appreciate him/spurs more. last time i felt this way: Jordan's final year in 97-98'. everything he did meant a little more and carried resonance
post #14324 of 18042
Hate to make this comparison because it's been done to death but I truly believe Pop is the Belichick of the NBA. Not just from a personality standpoint but like the point above, consistency throughout the years despite varied players and systems. Much like the Pats too, the championship drought despite coming close couple times is painful to watch if you're a fan. Pop and the Spurs are obviously more likeable though. laugh.gif

Yea me too NAMOR, but lately I am a big fan. Especially when I left Celtics bandwagon, Spurs are all that is left from MINE nba. They play great though. Parker is such a great scorer and passer, 99% of time does the right thing, and he's also nice to watch like Steve Nash was. Ginobili and Duncan though are clearly out of their primes but still are playing good ball, especially Duncan. He was such a beast on d once. That's why their style changed, they can't count on him defensively like they did in the past.

Lame thing about spurs is that they call Duncan PF all the time, while he is clearly a C. Most time he always spent on floor was on center. LAME LAME LAME
