Re: Article: San Antonio Express News - Buck Harvey: The coach of the series: The un-
That writer is such a hack. The article's premise (that Popovich is the best coach in the league) isn't what's wrong--at least that's defensible. What's pathetic is how he tries to denigrate the coaching abilities of Pop's peers in order to make that point.
Look at how he portrays Phil, for example. He makes a dude with 9 (NINE!) MF'N rings out to be some kind of stuck-in-his-ways simpleton (thank God that Popovich let Robert Horry finally cut loose and become the dominant 2 ppg, 2 rpg playoff performer he is today!).
If you're gonna criticize Phil for not making the proper defensive adjustments, shouldn't you point the finger at Popovich for not making the proper offensive adjustments? His team did just shoot 40% in a game 7, after all. Then again, I suppose that's really not the MO of someone writing for the pinnacle of journalism known as mysanantonio.com.
Also, wtf is a "Buck Harvey"? Sounds like the hero of a B-level 1960's detective movie. Get yourself a real ****ing name, please.
Everything about this guy's existence annoys me. Buck Harvey is now on my IRL ignore list.
