Dont get me started on Spoelstra.
This team is a second round at best team...thats where they've been.
Woody got them as far as they were capable....it's easy to say "this guy isnt a ship coach".
None are til they win.
You have a point. But still,Woodson principles are wrong and he's too stubborn to change it even when he sees it doesn't work.
Popovich changed team's style of play to suit the players he has. That's what makes him so great. He can coach anyone.
People like Woodson or D'Antoni need to have players that perfectly fit their system in order to succeed. Popovich doesn't. He'll make the best out of what he has.
East is horrible this year and we can't even get into the playoffs. We're underachieving. Melo has never missed the playoffs in his career and if Woodson can't get him into the playoffs in this horrible conference then it's time to go.
Bobcats are in front of us and they have no players even near Melo's talent. Heck,they don't even have players that are talented as J.R. or Bargnani.
