Porter knew exactly how he wanted the team to play, slow half court offense, all geared to giving Shaq the ball. THAT is what pissed off the rest of the team, mostly Nash and Stat.
If he learnt that you have to use the strengths of your roster as a whole not choose a system that's good for one guy and terrible for everyone else he could be a good coach.
