Scott is a decent coach; beside from the complete lack of quality players on roster and his unwillingness to play rookies, there is really nothing wrong with him.

I am glad they made GM Jeff Bower the coach. Get to eat some of his own cooking.

There's nothing wrong with horrible rotations and game management? There's nothing wrong with getting talented guys in his doghouse, only to watch them flourish on other teams? There's nothing wrong with fighting for a big free agent acquisition, only to see that blow up in his face?

Chris Paul, David West, Peja, Okafor are all garbage? OMG.....



It's like the Raptors with Chris Bosh....franchise players who don't act like franchise players.

Ive never thought he was good, from Kidd to Paul

Scott is just a figure-head while Kidd or Paul were the prime minister who runs the show

You list 4 players - thats the issue. They have 4 players. There is ZERO depth.

Secondly, Bosh has arguably been the best player in the league so far. He is dominating.

He took the Nets to the NBA finals twice, with an solid but unspectacular roster. I'd say he is a pretty good coach. But it seems that players/management can only handle his style when they are winning.

Funny how he had the most success with two of the best PG's of their generation, and then his relationship with the team and it's players wore thin quickly.

Basketball coaching is much more than the coach's win/loss record. Player development, talent evaluation, player rotations, defensive and offensive schemes, team discipline & player morale all play large parts in how a coach is evaluated. By those measures, Scott is weak. Not terrible but not good enough to take a mid-market team to the next level. Unless he was restricted from making personnel decisions, he holds considerable blame for the state of this team. Earl Smith lll & Chris Andersen agree!

Byron has been a winner no matter where he coached. He has over achieved with the players he had. I hope he never ends up with a real squad. With the talent at Dallas I think he could really do something.
