he seems pretty forward thinking too, one of the first teams to really dive into the efficiency stats, avoiding mid-range js, and focusing on layups and threes.
im a big fan of stan van gundy.
My biggest thing with SVG are his issues with superstar players in Orlando and Miami, most notably Dwight and Shaq. I believe those were the two guys who sealed his fate at each successive stop.
There's not doubt he has the goods from an X's and O's standpoint. The big question has always been, can he relate to these high profile players.
Now, with all of that said, I'd welcome him in if he's the choice.
