Obviously when a team wins the NBA Title, the best player gets the most credit, with that in mind,

When a team wins the NBA Title, who usually gets more credit in your opinion, the 2nd best player or the coach?

It all depends on the team

for example
Michael Jordan era I would have to give it to Phil Jackson (cmon how couldnt you rite?)

Cetlic championship last year, Im saying Paul was the best player on the team consistently through out the play offs and won MVP so he was the best player on the roster last year, but Im giving KG the love, who was their coach anyways? (just playing)

The all mighty Spurs, Im actually giving it to Greg Popovich, and the Spurs organization (the mvp if thats possible). Yeah Tim Duncan is a hall-of-famer and Parker will be one aswell if he keeps playing the way he does. You cant take great drafts away from the spurs, from Timmy D, to Ginoblio, even Oberto is a solid roll player. They draft smart, develop player correctly, and look to win championship over anything (gotta love them)

IMO your questions doesnt have a answer because it all depends on the team.

Yeah I am aware of that, just wanted to get people's views on the matter. I guess it means looking at every champion to decide.

How about neither?

How about giving credit to the entire team. The best player can't get it done without the reserves, and the coach can't get it done without EVERY player.

Really pointless question, IMO.

I used this past year as the basis for my decision. Garnett or Pierce (whichever is second best) got more credit than doc.

with an unusual team definitly the coach with a team full of great players its usually the second best player or the best player. if its an quiet coach who nobody really notices he mite raise some eyebrows

95% of the time, 2nd best player. If the lakers won this year tho, it could have been Phil. Consideirng he woulda been passing Red and all.

I would say its usually the 2nd best player. Usually championship coaches get credit though.

Take PJ. Without him, I'm not sure Jordan and Co. would have won 6 titles. Before he got there, they hadn't even gotten to the finals. Same deal with the 3 peat with the Lakers.

I would say its usually best player 2nd best then the coach.

Coach. If you have one mega star. 2nd player if you have two mega stars

Coaches get no credit, they either fulfill their teams potential or they bring them down, very rarely is a great coach worth more to a team than a great player.

I think that sounds about right as well.
