3 yrs in Detroit his record was 78%, 65% and 72% winning % enroute to 3 straight conference finals.
There was a ton of talent on those teams that he coached. Of course they were going to have a winning record. Detroit would have another championship if they would have had a different coach...... Chauncey has basically said the same thing. They wouldn't have lost to San Antonio in 05 if Sheed and Saunders were on the same page.
