In response to Mployee8's comment:
Exactly ... with that squad he got "A" Title!!! A title as in ONE TITLE ... Are you kidding me?!?!
He's got three HOF's and Rondo and he can only manage ONE frigin title!?!?!?!
He didn't use his bench well if at all ... taught/prepared the bench guys for NOTHING!!!
The only thing Doc accelled at was drawing up last minute plays ... I'll give him that but not much more .... PERIOD!!!!
From your reaction it is pretty clear that you are not objective, but your emotions taking over. Why does this topic (doc) get you so nuts?
Doc had 3 HOF players and Rondo, you are right, but:
1) Rondo was a late first rounder. He was not even a major factor of this title run. To be clear: We did not win a title because of Rondo. If anything then Doc deserves praise for devloping a late first rounder.
2)None of this HOF players was in his prime.
3)When Doc had the favorite team, and the best RS record, he delivered. Miami and Spoelstra did not win in their first year, even with the best player in the game. The Bulls and Thibs didn't make it to the finals with the best RS record.
4)If KG didn't go down we might have 2 or 3 titles.
5)We have not been the favorite after the year KG went down. As a consequence, none of the experts thought we had the best team. Which means, we never underachieved.
Again, I'm not saying Doc is a great coach. But when a longtime Cs fan tells getting rid of him is the best move ever, this is pure nonsense.
