Echo chamber of this board is out of control.
I'm not echoing anything. We have beaten 2 (at the time) over .500 teams, Denver and Portland. Correct or incorrect? Basically we've beaten a bunch of teams that we're better than and largely not beaten teams better than us. There is something to be said about winning the ones you should, but I think what I stated is pretty accurate, This team this year with Monty as coach has proven that they are very unlikely to win unless they have a talent advantage. If the talent is what's winning, then what is the coach doing?
I get why you defend Monty so much on this board because many of the attacks against him are confirmation bias, we lose, Monty made X calls I disagree with, therefore this loss is 100% on Monty. But my jumping off the Monty bandwagon is coming from a very different place.
do you know an NBA coach that can win without talent?
Popovic. I'd say Thibs and Carlisle have done pretty well with what they've had. I don't think Monty's a terrible coach, I just think he's had ample opportunity to show he's special and failed. Why do we want to keep an ordinary coach around? When hiring coaches last time look at the candidates we had to choose from. No legit coach wanted to touch a team headed for a rebuild. If we fired Monty this offseason I think you'd still have a pretty thin candidate pool. Karl is interested because the roster suits him, and that's why I think it's time for a change. Karl can make this team a playoff team and once we are there, if he can't get it done you've proven yourself enough to attract the other proven coaches. This team has 6 years or so to build a contender around Davis, if Monty's not the guy, you have to move on, whether that's hiring Karl or even taking a chance on another assistant or college coach.
