I have a hard time believing that. Two offensive geniuses in Kobe and Nash would not vouch for the man if they felt he was incompetent.
first - ex players don't necessarily translate to good coaches so to suggest because 2 players saying so as it relates to coaching is a stretch to defend ones own opinion here IMO.
Second - 2 guards, 1 ball dominant and 1 a volume shooter likes MDA? wow what a shocker there lol ...... just because certain players like the style doesn't mean it's a winning style or philosophy..... sometimes we don't know what's best for our own good when we are on the inside of the issue.
Your first point is kind of random and doesn't really have anything to do with what I said but...
When the Lakers hired MDA they obviously went to Kobe and Nash for their approval. Seeing as these two guys have played under MDA and know the game of basketball quite well it would be pretty ridiculous to assume they signed off on MDA if they didn't think he was a good coach.
And Kobe+Nash is perfectly capable of coexisting, I'm not sure why you think they aren't. For the bajillionth time, we're not losing because our players can't co-exist offensively, we're losing because they don't have any idea how to defend as one unit.
