No team is going to give you a coaching job for being aggressive in a forum full of complete strangers.

Basketball is fun. So help make the forum fun and take it easy with this "you don't know anything" garbage. I can take it....Im still here aren't I? When you do that with strangers though, there's a a very thin line that you don't just cross, but you cross, you rape your opponent's mother, and then you cross back over the line again. So if you're going to do that coaching thing, pick your opponent that actually can read through that crap so you don't drive people away with that aggressive nonsense.

OMG, Freak, what just happened to you? You finally took off your helmet and just realized that DK thinks he is God and us here are merely idiots who are clueless about basketball?
He calls most NBA coachess like Mike Brown and D'Antoni, clowns, said Erik Spoelstra as a tad better than the two Mikes etc and yet he spends most of his time here, a free website ranting who stupid they are and if we disagree, he will insult our intelligence as if we are lowest scums of the earth. Then later on hell put up these. as if nothing happened.

Hello Tam, I have never insulted anyone's intelligence.....unless their entire existence is based on knowledge of basketball coaching. I am a highly intelligent man but when it comes to soccer I am an idiot, I couldn't remotely come close to holding my own in an argument .
I'm sure Lakerfreak could kick my @ss in a discussion about Psychology.The difference between me and some FANS in here is that they are not realistic in their knowledge.......with sincere apologies to Lakerfreak for using this as an example, when someone says Magic won titles without Kareem or some other thing of that sort....and then they want to argue a point.....what can you really say if they have no idea what they are talking about.
Guys on here watch a few Laker's games and in their heads consider themselves experts . I actually enjoy sensible basketball discussions and long as they are intelligent and well thought out, they don't have to agree with me.......Frank Foley is a great example, the guy is razor sharp....we don't always agree but what he says always makes sense, I can understand where he is coming from and understand his angle or point of view....even if it differs from mine.......there are plenty of other guys like that on here. I was extremely fortunate to have learned from amazing basketball minds......Legends you all know... from the time I was young....(you know middle of last century ) I learned so much because I LISTENED to those who knew more, not insisted I knew everything, I soaked it up like a sponge. I
applied my knowledge to coaching, training and developing kids into not only excellent basketball players but top notch young men. At points I have had as many as 9 teams running, playing 4 seasons per year plus tournaments this is over a span of over 25 years....and in my worst single team season we won over 80% of our games. The coaches I have trained have only had outstanding winning seasons. I won't even go into the success of players I have coached. I would certainly hope that guys who know more about coaching than me are not wasting their time sitting on the sofa watching Lakers games.....maybe more of those need to coach

Was I wrong about Mike Brown? Or was I 100% right that he was an incompetent coach......YES, I was right and I said it immediately upon his hire that he would be gone after a season.......hmmm Maybe I can evaluate a coach.....maybe the fact that I have been paid to evaluate and train coaches...maybe that has something to do with it.....hmmm, maybe the guy who's entire basketball experience has been to sit on his rear with a beer and watch Lakers games couldn't do the same........go figure

I was out front from day 1 in calling our new coach 'Antoni for having no defense at all, in fact he thinks defense is useless.......was I wrong
Gee......maybe I just get lucky, maybe if all I did was watch basketball on my rear end at home with a beer I would know just as much.
Maybe if I didn't talk daily to guys who either played, coached or ran NBA teams....or are still doing so, I would still know just as much as I do......or maybe knowledge is overrated

Maybe with my lack of soccer knowledge I could go onto a soccer forum and argue soccer coaching with a veteran soccer coach.....nah, If I wanted to learn something I would listen and soak up the info....but that's just me

Oh hi DK, happy new year.
How long did it take you to expound on your greatness, 30 minutes?
Im sure you are knowledgeable but at times I just can't stand arrogance esp when other fans disagree with you plus the fact you constantly insult other people as if they are stupid.
Mike Brown is imcompetent? Let me say for the umpteenth time that he was also NOT my choice, like you i preferred Rick Adelman but my gosh, the guy has a career record of 65 %, lasted 5 long years with a superstar who intentionally bumped Erik Spoelstra 2-3 months into the season.
BTW, do you deny saying before that Phil Jackson is more of an ego manager than a coach?
Phil is my favorite and yet when Gary Payton played here, he ALSO COMPLAINED that the coaching staff HARDLY talked about defense.
You also proclaimed Avery Johnson as a great coach(im not saying he is a bad tactician), giving him so much credit on bringing Dallas to the finals and yet totally blamed Dirk with his softness, when they got upset by the Warriors, chronicling some of his failures in the clutch and yet 82games penned him as one of the top pressure players BEFORE he led Dallas to the championship.
But you know what? I also blamed myself cause I should have given you props when you needed it, whenever you analyze coaching moves and strategies etc at times.
But at times, I just shake my head when you simply call guys as clowns and clueless thats it.

Happy New Year Tam

I honestly don't give a rats @ss if anyone ever give me props on ISH....seriously. I get props daily for my actual coaching work, from current and past players and their families......even that doesn't matter much. What I take pride in is from others complimenting my current and former players on how smart they are, how hard they work on every play at both ends.....and what great young men they are because more than just a coach, I am a mentor......that's what I take pride in.
I think too many people on ISH take basketball way too seriously....it's just a sport.
You're not going to change the world or save lives with all the basketball knowledge in the world.....so what is the big deal if I know more about the game than any others on here.....no big deal in the grand scheme of life.

I stand behind everything I said on here 100%, none of it was hindsight, I was way out in front in making bold comments because I know the game and have been coaching long enough to assess a coach's ability. I have been paid to do so for schools in need of a good coach....I have been 100% correct.

Sure, I would LOVE to have been wrong about Mike Brown.....the guy was the most clueless coach I had ever seen when he was with the Cavs......I was embarrassed for him, but couldn't help but laugh because he was so inept.
The chance he was going to do well with the Lakers was the same chance that I within 10 minutes.....win the Lottery, get struck by lightning and then a meteorite

Mike 'Antoni.....yeah, go look, from the moment they hired him I said he would have to earn the "D" from me.....now my friend Lakerfreak hated that I did that without giving him a chance.....but come on, if you really know what the guy is all about, you really know he doesn't give a crap about defense and will not practice it. What's sad is that he is an intelligent coach, not a pretender like Mike Brown. 'Antoni has been trying to change the game, prove he can win a championship by outscoring other teams and turning a blind eye to defense and rebounding, I'm not saying that inside him is a defensive genius, I'm saying he doesn't want to change to win, he wants to win HIS WAY, get all the glory for being an innovator. I can tell you that it will not work now, it will not work ever which is why I was irate that we even interviewed him in the first place........I'd just as soon go to a KKK barbecue in Kentucky

Again, I have had the great fortune to have been around and talk with many of the greatest basketball minds ever for most of my life, I talk with NBA people daily, my views reflect their views.......I think I can talk with intelligence on the people I speak of.....and be right
I do not intentionally insult anyone on here but at times some of the stuff spouted is just ridiculous.....someone has to be honest.....sorry of that offends......sometimes the truth hurts.

Again....I seriously hoped that both MB and 'Antoni would succeed and win a title and that those who disagreed with me could forever hold it in my face......I would absolutely love that because I am a lifelong Lakers fan.....from 1960. I hate the Celtics and we need to pass them for titles at all costs. So seriously, I am a grown man, I can take any amount of ribbing especially if it means a title for the Lakers. It kills me that we have made such basketball fatal choices with coaches......pray that I am 100% wrong....I do.


Hey Tam.......remember this......lol.
