he sure did burn down the Spurs the other afternoon.
In reality, there's very few times in game situations where coaches can have direct impact. It is practice times where they are most effective and do the work. But game times, the schemes and the strategies are so well thought out and so planned after 50 years of games that most of the time it's almost a format that they follow.
Sunday afternoon was one of those impact times. Whatever he said, or..... whatever he didn't say, in that timeout about 2 minutes before OT......... worked.
Doc had 3 hof and a potential one.
Mark has a bunch of young players.
Barring disastrous injuries those young guys you are talking about, are going to the hall. They are already playing at the top levels; where they are struggling is where all young guys struggle (and not just in hoops for that matter) and that is consistency.
