Yea, I know all that. But to say Phil is the worst coach in the NBA, is a bit of a stretch, no?
I mean c'mon.
Give any good coach:
Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Toni Kukoc, Dennis Rodman, Ron Harper, Steve Kerr, Shaq, Kobe, Glen Rice, the cream of the crop in Basketball, and they are going to win. Have you ever seen Pill win with a bad team? Now what about a coach like Pop, compare the rosters, he's done pretty well with less. Now that Pill is retiring, are the lakers going to fall apart? Why is it when the Lakers are playing great Pill gets all of the credit, but when they're stinkin' it up, it's the players fault?, doesn't he bear some responsibility?
I'm rough on Pill because everyone gives him a pass when the team plays bad. Haven't you watched a game and wondered why he would take a hot player out and substitute with a cold one, I have. Haven't you heard Stew say something to the effect, "Oh he's hot, he better watch out or he's going to the bench", it's a running joke, and still even you haven't answered my question, why was Bynum on the bench in the 4th quarter?, is that smart coaching?
