"Clippers and Rockets players want Lue as coach. "
Tue Oct-13-20 01:23 PM by allStah

          

For what reason, I don’t know. This makes me think that clippers players intentionally got Doc fired. No way in hell Doc gets fired if Kawhi and George speak up for him.

Lue lets players run the show to me. ....of course they want him

Doc should have never taken him on as an assistant

Because he won with Lebron?

Every coach has said Lebron is smarter than they are. And Lebron
ran the Lakers.

Why would you say that about Lue?

I saw the huddle. I saw Lebron and players looking elsewhere.
And when Lebron left , he was replaced by Larry Drew.

He was coach in name only, and a coach that Lebron wanted, because there would be less interference. .....Lebron wanted Riley to fire spolestra, but Riley told him to sit his ass down.

Lue was the coach of a championship team....did he not do
what a coach is supposed to?

I find these narratives extremely offensive

He won a championship with Lebron. Come on. He is not known for his Xs and Os. Maybe he is good at dealing with and handling superstar players.

Maybe I’m going off s small sample size....but this is the coach who is suppose to take down the lakers?

I’m just not big on Lue.

Kerr hires elite offensive and defensive coaches for a reason.

So basically Lue is Kerr?

Why are you so skeptical?

He coached his team to a 3-1 victory

When he originally stated that my take on Lue was offensive....as if I wouldn’t say the same thing about a white coach. Saying a coach is not good does not equate to being offensive

.and then he compared Lue and Kerr, as if to say a white coach does it, etc.

I know OE. I know how he gets down with the coaching aspect in the NBA.

From what I understand, he kept LeBron accountable too. That's about the only notable thing I've heard exclusively attributable to him but that is significant since managing egos is a huge part of the job.

But, yeah, with LeBron as your coach on the court, it's hard to really discern where his genius ends and where the coach's influence begins.

So I'll be interested to see how he does with lesser stars and when he's given several year to make an imprint.

Kerr literally just hires smart people to run the
offense and defense. Mike Brown transformed them into
defensive gods. Alvin Gentry transformed the offense.

Kerr manages the personalities and cohesion.

To not talk about this racist.

because there would be less interference.

In response to Reply # 15


          

it's completely coincidental...but, I'm currently reading (listening) to Ethan Strauss's book on the Warriors. In the section where he discusses Mark Jackson's exit and Steve Kerr's incoming...he said that one of the huge differences between the two of them is that Mark Jackson wanted to be the unquestioned head man on the staff...where as Kerr wanted to hire the absolute best minds he could, for his staff and let them do their thing. For whatever that's worth.

...cleaned up my act, made a few violent songs...but, they wack like Glen Rice with New Balance on - Sean Price

Because black coaches get fired and replaced by their "smart" white assistants see Casey/Nurse

There's definitely some privilege to how Kerr went from commentating, to being an exec, to becoming HC but I think that path is why it doesn't feel weird that he's outsourced the Xs and Os to great assistants. That's a continuation of his management style as an exec.

Lue's had more experience directing Xs and Os so I expect more of him in terms of that but there's no reason he couldn't outsource everything like Kerr if he wanted to.

I'm just saying that LeBron deservedly gets alot of coaching credit as well so its hard for me to tell what Lue brings to the table. He hasn't developed some signature offensive or defensive strategy as far as I know so it seems like he should just be evaluated on his ability to build a coaching staff and connect with the players.

Is because soccer is not a huge topic, so we keep it all in one thread. I’m
always in the soccer thread, but you guys aren’t.

And as you can see, it got no real replies. It wasn’t a diss.
