The one year he had some actual talent, he helped bring us back to the playoffs
The team barely grabbed the 8th seed with one of the top 3 players in the league. The credit for the playoff birth goes to Paul. They made the playoffs almost every year Paul was healthy, there was no reason they shouldn't have made the playoffs with him.
The year after that, he kept one of the least talented rosters in the NBA competitive in plenty of games where they were overmatched
Last years team wasn't untalented. They had a loaded front court and tons of veteran players. They intentionally held guys out and exaggeratted injuries to get a better lottery pick. I don't blame them for it, but winning a 1/3 of your games isn't ever something to brag about or hang your hat on.
He's done a very good job so far with this roster with everyone completely healthy, but that much youth and inexperience is hard to overcome for any coach
It's been a tough year. I knew they would be bad, but I had higher hopes for Davis as an impact player and Rivers, who is just horrible offensively. Lopez, Anderson and Vasquez have been alot better than I thought. But Smith and Aminu have been too up and down.
I'm not holding this year against Monty. But I don't think he should get a ton of credit as well. When someone says that he is one of the best coaches in the league, I take that to mean top 5 or 10. There is just nothing that proves that. But they have to get much better next year and make a run. No coach should be under .500 three season in a row, in the NBA. He will be on the hot seat as he should be..
