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.

So, correct me if I'm wrong here, but this is what I'm getting from your post:

1. It's easy to be a defensive coach and have the best record in the league.
I would love to have the best record in the league but ok.
2. "There are lots of defensive coaches in the league and some don't have jobs."
So if you're in the league, how don't you have a job? Are these defensive coaches working pro bono? Rather admirable and altruistic of them. But isn't Mike D'Antoni unemployed also?
3. "It takes a higher IQ to be an offensive coach because it needs more analysis to develop this systems."
So we should get like a professor to coach us then?
4."Dantoni has proven he can play defense, its just that he doesnt hold his players accountable."
So the stats are erroneous and he wasn't in the top 10 every year of his career for most points allowed per game?
03-04 (4th worse) 04-05 (worst) 05-06 (3rd worst) 06-07 (8th worst) 07-08 (6th worst) 08-09 (3rd worst) 09-10 (3rd worst) 10-11 (4th worst)
5. 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.
So the Bulls are going to suck next year? Is this what you're saying? You do realize that Rose was gone a lot this season and they still had the best record. Yea, who cares about the best record in the league 2 times in the row and making it to the conference finals in your 1st year as head coach.
6."Dantoni made the finals coz the suns/spurs series is the finals during
2007."
Wait what?
7. And he hasnt matched dantonis career.
Really? Mike's best 2 seasons ended in the conference finals. Thibs has already been there with less talent. Furthermore, we had a losing record when D'Antoni was here. We were 6 games under .500 with a rough schedule looming. We ended up 6 games OVER .500 If D'antoni was here, it would have marked his 5th time not making the playoffs. But yea, Tom Thibadeau is no Mike D'Antoni ... maybe that's a good thing!
