He's a real general tho, his players often said that playing for him is like being a machine, you just have to execute what he wants you to. That could be a problem translating into the NBA, where usually players matter a lot more than coaches.
He also was Bargnani's first coach and expressed several times interest in coaching him again. C1F8

Can't see that working in the NBA, but he'd be an elite college coach I bet.
