Is anybody else reading this!!! Defensive coaches are overrated? Name the last team to win a ring with strictly offense? It's ok...I'll wait.
Its easy to be a defensive coach thats why most offensive coaches like pjax are also good on defense. Thats why there are lots defensive coaches in this league and some of them dont have jobs. It takes a higher IQ to be an offensive coach because it needs more analysis to develop this systems. Dantoni has proven he can play defense, its just that he doesnt hold his players accountable.
And who cares about the first 2 years, what is important is his team would be mediocore the next few years coz he ended the career of his star. And he hasnt matched dantonis career. Dantoni made the finals coz the suns/spurs series is the finals during 2007.
