Yes it most certainly is. You can achieve that in a variety of ways and Pop is about as skilled at doing that as anyone ever has been. He's old school and doesn't put up w/any shit. He came up under Larry Brown and is a real coach and basketball mind. Lots of good coaches came up under LB. His impact on basketball will be felt long after he's dead. That dude is a stone cold teacher.
