Well I think it's both Miami stepped up and San Antonio couldn't make the right adjustments. Miami kept switching the perimeter which put guys like lebron on Parker which made it so they didn't need help defenders like they would normally so they could keep up pressure on the perimeter shooters

Spurs needs to put a fourth big on rotation to keep the tempo up. Their offence was stagnant in the fourth quarter.

Just size maybe. It's harder to look graceful when you're 260 or whatever he goes for now.

His jumpshot looks like he's completely off balance, but it works for him, I guess

And he's bow-legged.

He likes to jump with his legs under him and he staggers his legs wider as he lands

The 3s that Dwayne wade nailed had perfect form

Fisher's official. Are he and Kidd the only two players to go straight to a HC job from being a player? You've also got another rookie HC in Kerr but at least he's been an exec before

Larry Brown if you count ABA, Bill Russell sort of

But doesn't it make sense, considering Jackson needs someone flexible so he can orchestrate things from behind the scenes? I see the Zen Master as being the meta coach, and really missing parts of the game just not wanting the drag of travel and the insanely long regular season.

Lol at the goddamn Warriors and Knicks. I don't know if they hired good coaches (nobody does), but how you gonna be so bad at negotiating that you have to pay a 1st-time head coach $5m/yr for 5 years.

Kerr I understand because warriors were competing with knicks but fisher? Never coached in any capacity and he gets $5 mill/year?

Why didn't they go for a good college coach with triangle experience?

And when Bitchface takes his talents somewhere else you can have another team as well.

i personally find it a lot more fun to be able to appreciate a top-5 player in nba history and easily the best player since jordan, excelling in his prime, than to irrationally root against his success at every turn.

yea exactly. i guess cuz phil solely deals w/ former players of his, who knows. honestly there's really not much optimism to be had if youre a knicks fan. consider these moves from anybody who's not phil and ....
