    He's overrated as a coach, thats why.

    I’m really interested in why this place has numerous posters that always know more about coaching than the actual coaches coaching at the NBA level.
    In this case not just a coach but a championship coach that has been coaching for many years.
    Something tells me Doc Rivers as much as I dislike the guy is probably very capable of getting that team at least to the second round.
    After the second round we all know it’s a crap shoot.

    Who is the coach who has the most losses after leading series 3 games to 1?

    He was pretty much considered a shit coach until the Celtics got KG and Ray Allen.

    Look at Gilbert Arenas pod, or JJ and Jamal Crawford talking about him.

    He has dealt with a few injuries in the playoffs as I understand as well no?
    Gilbert Arenas and Jamal Crawford podcast you say?

    My comment stands.

    I think its largely because he has been gifted contending teams every step of his career and has not won with any of them.

    King is one of the most positive posters here. Please don't run him off.

    This guy has some criticisms of Billips (which I think are overdone) and Cronin concerning how Scoot has been used and how he fits in this roster. He does conclude though that Charlotte certainly has no regrets about picking Miller.
    "Henderson has been raw, but to Lowe's point the young guard was put in a strange situation, on a 15-39 team with an ill-fitting roster. Has Miller been by far the better player to this point? Yes, but given his attributes, it always seemed likely he would blossom first. Let's put a pin in this conversation until at least the end of their rookie-scale contracts."

    Consider the source here. You seem to have expectations that need to be reduced at this point?

    I will not use green font on this.

    My mistake. Thats right. When he had three hall of fame players and a young future stud in Rondo.
    I think most coaches could have won with that roster at that time though.

    He also had to keep 3 HOF players and a young Rondo in check. Yes he had a good team. Right now he has a good team also. Good teams win Championships. Coaches lead them and Doc seems to get the role a bunch. Obviously not everyone likes him but you have to admit he gets the nod a lot?

    Nah, you are right. He must have a bit of Phil in him behind the scenes. Lord knows on the sidelines at games he is a jackhole though. Lol.
    I hold a grudge for the CJ snub so im biased. Lol.
    Screw him.

    True, but he had prime CP3 and Blake Griffin in LAC and then Kawhi and PG13.

    He had Embiid and Harden in Philly.

    The guy has had extremely talented teams. He's just a mediocre coach.

    Scoot is out with an abductor strain and won't play tomorrow...Walker is questionable, the tank is clearly on.
