Ok, Looking at best and worst in game changers.
I do think Phil Jackson is a great coach, but making in-game substitutions wasn't exactly something he needed to do.
Ok, Jordan, Pippen and three of you other guys get out there and pass the ball to Jordan . . .not you Paxton. You wait a bit. Same with Kobe and Shaq.
There have been a TON of Olympic Hockey Coaches, are you saying they all are great?
Swapping those two for
Coach K. Always has a ton of talent and always has to juggle them around.
Sabin. Hate all you want, but the man has more talent walking around the sidelines waiting to play than most teams have period.
Taking out the Soccer Coach, since you don't know him either.
All that talent, so few rings.
Stan Van Gundy actually is a very good coach who got burned by his star player. I'd look more to Vinny Del Negro

Stan gundy is a horrible addition..
How else can you explain getting dumped by Riley?
You should not have defended his honour..
Now people are going to think you are going to try and rationalize ANYTHING..
I know he got to the finals in Orlando.. But that was because Dwight and reddick put that team on their backs..
I'm sorry.. I meant 1980 Olympic hockey coach..
He took a bunch of bums all the way to the gold..
Just kids in college taking on the mighty Russians..
It was crazy.. And Kurt Russell played the coach in the movie!
You know you are pretty good when Kurt Russell plays you in a movie..
That is one tough hombre..
(I have more bullets, but I'm trying a new strategy)..

SvG couldn't handle the Egos- that doesn't mean he's a bad in-game coach. He's actually regarded as a very good in-game coach in NBA circles.
"I know he got to the finals in Orlando.. But that was because Dwight and reddick put that team on their backs.."
Think about what you just said- REDDICK WAS THE SECOND BEST PLAYER AND HE GOT THEM TO THE FINALS!!
Not Pippen, not Kobe, Not Shaq, not Wade not even Rasheed Wallace
J F'N J RIDDICK dragged a team to the FINALS and his coach SUCKS??
I can see you giving HERB his due- stunning you don't know his name (and I can) but again, you picked them as a group- but thats ok.
Kurt Russell also played in Overboard with Goldie Hawn- who played tough in Wildcats.
Not that in means anything, but Wildcats is an awesome movie. I think her daughter should do a remake (shot for shot- including the bathtub scene)

You should be a car salesman..
I don't know why you are defending Stan..
That's like defending hitler..
It simply can not be done..
Stan the man had the greatest gig in sports..
Coaching the mighty heat..
He had wade in his prime.. Remember when wade was healthy?
He had the big diesel, arguably the greatest to play the lovely game..
His job was to win a championship..
Not get to the semis east of my house..
No one cares about the semis east of my house..
That's why he got the axe..
And we all know what happened next..
Riley wins again cause he actually knows a thing or 2 about basketball..
Riley understood how to bring out the best in the big man..
I will agree with you on one point and one point alone..
Stan the man brought out the best in Reddick..
But all you need in basketball is one big guy like Dwight..
And boom you are in the finals..
I'm happy Stan the man never won anything..
His voice is sooooo annoying..
I hate his press conferences..
The game would be better off without him..
He only got the job in the first place cause his bro was famous..
Similar to the grudens..
Stan will always be in the shadow of his bro..

Thats a lot of Hate on Stan.
Considering he has a .641 winning percentage, and his second best player was (According to you) J.J REDDICK.
I'm just stunned at the Haterade you are pouring out.
Admit it, you are Floats Dupe, right?
You still have not answered why you left out Sabin- Arguably the best NCAAF Coach working today and Coach K, who is knocking on the door of being in the discussion for best NCAAB coach since Wooden- and Wooden said what K has done was more impressive than what HE DID.
Plus Bobby Cox. Thats like Stan losing with the 80s Lakers today.
