Re: Are we sure Doc is coming back?

The wasteland that is coming will be a huge letdown for all those that complained about Doc, get ready because it is a fact.
I agree about the wasteland and do appreciate Doc but coaching decisions aside, let's not forget that he is also somewhat responsible for the current status of the C's.
He may not have wanted to trade Perk but he did agree to the deal. Then, after that deal didn't work out as well as they thought and DA got gun-shy, Doc seeems to have had even more say in 'buying the groceries' with the deals for Jet, Lee, et al. Plus, Doc went out of his way to say how much he values his relationship with a good GM like DA, so you know he has Danny's ear regarding personel decisions. Who knows...maybe Doc even had something to do with DA pulling the plug on deals with PP & KG at the deadline?
Doc has seemed to tie his horse more to what KG is doing than anything else lately, so maybe after his experience with the Big 3 he just sees himself more like Phil Jackson and now would rather only coach and relate to eastablished star players.
What are you talking about?!?
Doc and Danny took a losing team, compiled assets, built a conteder, won a championship, and then extended a 3 year window for three-going-on-four extra seasons. During that time we made another Finals appearance almost winning a 2nd title, two 2nd round exits, and an ECF exit that could have gone our way leading to yet another title.
Did you expect the big 3 era to last for perpetuity??
Doc is tied to KG because He's FREAKING KEVIN GARNETT. Do you think that not every single decision in San Antonio begins and ends with Tim Duncan?
My point is this: "The current status of the C's" is expected. Its not because of Doc or Danny's mismanagement of this team or players. It is because it is nearly impossible to build a team that contends every year for ever.
