You're telling me those guys weren't worth an extra 8 games? Added to the fact that Lebron was a year better?
What a frick'n joke.
I'm just trying to put myself in Ferry's shoes during their thought process. Not really my opinion on the issue. You are right, but Ferry sees more wins, and wants to reward the coach, even though Brown didn't have much to do with it.
05-06--50 wins, 2nd round exit
06-07--53 wins, eastern champs
I know why, and you know why they improved. It has little, if anything to do with the coaching genius of Mike Brown. I'm just examining this from the point of view of management (incompetent as they are--this is probably their thinking)
