Re: Who would you pick to coach your team?
Hard to argue with Avery's success, but if I have to swtich i guess I'll take Pat Riley or Greg Popovic. As much as certain players get reputations as defenders and get more leeway to push the limits of the rules, I think coaches do too and that'd work in our favor. I don't trust either of their offensive creativity though, particularly Popovic who would just call "4 down" every possession so I keep 1 of our 10 assistants and have them teach him our offensive system or one of our veteran players can teach him the plays.
I like Larry Brown and FLip Saunders just for some alleyoop plays. I wish the Mavs dunked more, and you NEVER see alleyoops (I can think of maybe 5 the last 2 seasons). Both coaches are great coming out of timeouts with a quick hitting play to get a good shot, George Karl too.
