Opinions and Predictions

Heres the link if any of you want it: http://www.nba.com/playoffs2003/coaches ... 30418.html

DON CHANEY:
If you were GM, who's your playoffs coach? Paul Silas. He has the demeanor, he's been there as a player and a coach, and he can adjust to a series. He doesn't get any credit whatsoever, and he's done a great job the last couple of years.
MVP of the regular season? Kevin Garnett. He's done a great job of carrying that team.
Intangibles for winning a title? Solid halfcourt defense, a great bench, and player that demands a double-team.
Finals predictions? New Jersey in the East, the Lakers in the West, and the Lakers to win it all.

ALVIN GENTRY:
If you were GM, who's your playoffs coach? Larry Brown. There's never any panic in Brown's actions, and that relaxes players.
MVP of the regular season? Shaq until someone defeats the Lakers. It's like MJ with the Bulls; we know what kind of team the Lakers are without him.
Intangibles for winning a title? The bench becomes huge. Adjust to what happens in the first few games.
Finals predictions? Detroit in the East, if Ben Wallace is healthy. The Lakers will win the West, and win it all.

ERIC MUSSELMAN:
If you were GM, who's your playoffs coach? Larry Brown, because of his experience, his demeanor, he's a great teacher and he makes adjustments during a series as well as anyone.
MVP of the regular season? Kevin Garnett. They have nice role players, but for them to win 50 games, he's the MVP.
Intangibles for winning a title? No injuries, good chemistry, and still believing when you get behind.
Finals predictions? Indiana in the East, the Lakers in the West, Lakers to win it all. It won't be a decent Finals. You could take the fourth seed in the West and they could go over to the East and win it.

KEITH SMART:
If you were GM, who's your playoffs coach? Larry Brown. He preaches defense, and gets his players to buy into it.
MVP of the regular season? Shaq. Kobe played well, but they didn't make a huge jump until Shaq arrived.
Intangibles for winning a title? The "unknown" players have to show up.
Finals predictions? Philly will come out of the East. Defense will carry them. The Lakers will win the West, and the Finals.
