Monty Williams and Erik Spoelstra are the two best young coaches in the NBA.

Great Coach.

Shows a good degree of Calm and tactical sense on both ends...his timeouts against the Lakers were fairly impressive.

Great coach, great person.
No brainer for NO with their young team of Davis, Gordon, Rivers, Anderson.
NO will be fun to watch this season.

I'm very jealous. Dude is such a good, poised young coach.

I have a couple of posts wishing D'Antoni would be fired and the Knicks hired Monty Williams.

Why do people keep saying Monty is a great coach? He hasn't proven anything yet in any direction as to if he is good/bad.

He's an absolutely amazing defensive coach. Had them in the top 10 last year even though they were obviously tanking. AD is the perfect fit in his defensive system and he will work with Austin to improve his D.

The Hornets were 15th in defensive efficiency last year.

Quite impressive for the amateur squad they had last season.

-Gordon nearly missed the entire season
-Okafor missed the entire second half of the season
-Kaman missed a boatload of games

Yup. Those are the 3 best defensive players too. Healthy Gordon+Davis and they have a legit chance to be a top 5 defense believe it or not with a coach like Monty at the helm.

We'll see. I'm by no means calling him a bad coach but I think it's a bit premature to be calling him a great coach after 2 seasons when he hasn't proven a thing.
