1. Doc Rivers: Dude was worse than Vinny Del Negro before he got the big 3, and even with the big 3 he could only manage 1 championship out of all that talent. Keep in mind he's also the highest paid Coach in a league with Greg Popovich and George Karl.

2. Mike D'Antoni: Can anyone get any worse on defense? he and the number 3 overrated coach need to join together so they can makeup a whole head coach.

3. Tom Thibodeau: His adjustment in the playoffs is predicated on Rose taking more shots, everyone knows how he plays Deng and Korver...he has the most predictable offense in the league. He and D'Antoni should consider joining forces to make one head coach.

4. Larry Drew: Seriously, is anyone even surprised at what the Hawks do anymore? first they made Joe Johnson the highest paid player last off-season then they retained this guy as coach. Maybe they have a different method of measuring success in Atlanta.

5. Stan Van Gundy: Long story short, OVERRATED.

1.Stan Van Gundy-Orlando Magic
2.Larry Drew-Atlanta Hawks
3.Mike D'Antoni-New York Knicks
4.Scott Brooks-Oklahoma City Thunder
5.Alvin Gentry-Pheonix Suns

SVG, D'Antoni, and Brooks all just have good teams but are the best coaches. SVG cracks under pressure, D'Antoni does NOT coach defense, and Brooks is kind of just riding his team. Drew also has a pretty good team but isnt a great coach, he just gets recognition for beating the Magic in 7 (Howard needs help), and taking the Rose-reliant Bulls to 6. The Pheonix Suns had the talent this year to still make the playoffs, Gentry is just an underachiever who got credit for taking the Suns to the WCF when they were clearly the 2nd best team in the West last season. Those are my top 5.

Mike D' Antoni was also a coach of the year, doesn't mean a thing. You know a good coach on how they adjust, never seen a coach as horrible as thibs in adjusting. How can you have the best record and lose 4 straight games in the conference finals?

Lol do you realize the **** teams Rivers coached before he got some actual talent? How could you possibly say Rivers is a bad coach?

Thibodeau? Are you high? He was an amazing defensive coach for the C's and he coached the Bulls to the best record in the league.

I see this thread getting ugly really soon. I don't think Doc Rivers is overrated at all, and I don't think I can agree with you on Thibs being overrated just yet. He's a rookie coach and like someone already said won COY. That just doesn't happy your rookie year coaching I think. Now don't get me wrong COY doesn't mean much sometimes if you have a good team regardless ** cough * Mike Brown* cough**.. lol. So who knows, I just think its too early to give him a title of overrated.

Right, Thibodeau turns a bunch of players who can't play D into the best defensive team in the league. But yea, he's overrated.

Why isn't Spo in there since he has 3 of the top players in the league on his team?

Those are my top 5.

Last season we added Frye (who was garbage in Portland) and Lou Amundson. He made that work with his rotations. Turned D'Antoni's 7 man rotation into a 10 man.
The Suns became one of the best teams in the league by the end of the year but come on now, no one had us even making the playoffs, let alone getting two wins from the finals.

This year (also predicted to not reach the postseason) we lose Amar'e, had 0 allstars, Nash was injured more this year than any other year, went through 2 trades (1 very significant), and still had 40 wins.

Gentry should be closer to last on the list of 'overrated'.

Why isn't Spo in there since he has 3 of the top players in the league on his team?

What players? Didn't know Korver became a defensive beast. So is better than Thibs btw, and nobody ever ranked Spo as high as Thibs was ranked.


This is what I'm thinking. This one may have a short lifespan.

Amazing that SVG goes from a consensus top 5-10 coach, to debatable #1 overrated over the span of one season...

The whole "he cracks under pressure" thing is a joke. Shaq said it once, and everyone ate it up. Name one circumstance for me where HE cracked under pressure. Bet you can't...

Thibs is the furthest thing from overrated as possible. He has as much, if not more, to do with Chicago's turn around than anything else.

So Van Gundy, D'Antoni, and Brooks are great coaches with good teams who couldn't get the job done? I don't expect much from you, but for the sake of PSD you need to say something substantial from time to time. Your ideas tend to take on water before you process them.

But they were expected to with the championship apparently because he's a better coach than SPO.

Oh lord where are these facts? everything you stated was opinion. Just because someone said Thibs would out coach Spo that's their opinion. Just because that opinion did not happen does not mean said opinion validates it as you to use as fact.

Not a fan of Mike D but we all knew what he was in the first place. then consider the fact his team was gutted for primarily one player. Same thing for Stan V. The GM took a great team made a move that turned them into a good or mediocre team.

The suns are going nowhere with that roster and playing in the west... maybe you could do better.

Doc won coach of the year took a Magic team to the playoffs. Took over a crappy Boston team stuck it out and won aa title.

End all most teams would be more than happy to take at least 3 out of your 5 overrated crappy coaches.

06-07-2011, 12:24 PM
Could you please stop comparing Thibs to Spo! This is not a knock on Spo, but he did have the assistance of a Hall of Fame caliber coach in Pat Reiley to help him out. (note: if the Bulls had that kind of support within the organization it would be foolish not utilize it). Also the expectations of Bulls grew as the successes of the team grew. If you would have told most rational NBA fans that the Bulls would finish the year with the best regular season record and lead the league in defense and make it to the eastern conference finals, no one would have believed you. So you have to give Thibs his dues as part of this process.

No the Heat are winning in the playoffs because of their defense and their clutch play down the stretch. Spo went through scrutiny all season and stuck with his philosophy to finally find success. He knew it was a process. Very good defensive coach. Plus he's made the playoffs every year as a coach especially with some bad teams.

Doc Rivers for sure, the guy is not even a good coach, I would consider him among the 5 worst coaches in the NBA

I would also include D'Antoni, but I think it is now a consensus that he sucks

Tom Thibodeau is what he is, he was Jeff Van Gundy's protege and coaches accordingly, he can get a lot of his guys during the regular season and come playoff time, their lack of offensive knowledge is exposed and they rely far too much on a single star for everything (Rose in Thibs case, tmac in JVGs), I would not call him overrated personally

While what you said is not necessarily wrong, do you think it's fair to judge a coach on 1 season?

1. Doc Rivers: Dude was worse than Vinny Del Negro before he got the big 3, and even with the big 3 he could only manage 1 championship out of all that talent. Keep in mind he's also the highest paid Coach in a league with Greg Popovich and George Karl.

2. Mike D'Antoni: Can anyone get any worse on defense? he and the number 3 overrated coach need to join together so they can makeup a whole head coach.

3. Tom Thibodeau: His adjustment in the playoffs is predicated on Rose taking more shots, everyone knows how he plays Deng and Korver...he has the most predictable offense in the league. He and D'Antoni should consider joining forces to make one head coach.

4. Larry Drew: Seriously, is anyone even surprised at what the Hawks do anymore? first they made Joe Johnson the highest paid player last off-season then they retained this guy as coach. Maybe they have a different method of measuring success in Atlanta.

5. Stan Van Gundy: Long story short, OVERRATED.

Larry Drew is overrated? What would be the consensus on where he ranks as a coach anyway? He is overrated because Atlanta's management retained him and overpaid for Joe Johnson? That makes sense. I don't really think anyone has given him much credit at all so I don't see how he is overrated.

Actually I think he did a surprisingly good job adjusting in the Orlando and Chicago series. Their team just isn't good enough. Granted he should have played Teague sooner and IMO, given Marvin Williams a bigger role, but that team has really hit its ceiling as currently constructed. They desperately need a defensive center not named Jason Collins or Zaza Pachulia.

Yes I do, that is also why I said he was NOT overrated

None of what I said means he is a bad coach, just means he has flaws, I would still take him over most coaches in the league


Erik Spoelstra. He's never been a special coach.

Has anyone ever called him a special coach? He can't be overrated if no one even rates him, It is too early to judge him for one, and he did a good job with the Heat before Lebron and Bosh got there

The only reason why Cs didn't take more titles is their age and injuries... The only year they played healthy they took rings. So c'mon dude!

Thibodeau did coach his team to the #1 overall in the NBA and got coach of the year. Yeah he lost in the playoffs but I'm sure they will be back next year and for many years to come.

Is your head on straight??? Doc Rivers overrated??? I have know idea what would make you say something like that, also, Tom Thibodeau overrated?? You are such a tool. First of all The Bulls didn't have the talent of the Heat, if anyone is overrated it's coach Spo, he has the biggest 3 of the big 3's and if they lose to the Mavs I will be laughing my A$s off for such a long time.

By the way, Doc Rivers did not do a bad job in Orlando and the team in Boston was terrible before KG and Allen, and he actually did well his first season with Boston.

Once again, you are a tool, put coach Spo on the celtics and Rivers on the Heat, the Heat would probably be up 3-0 right now.

People still read posts from Dnew? He's been a garbage poster since the day he arrived when the big three did.

Take Doc and Thibs out. Insert Spo and Mike Brown.

How the hell i spo overrated? No one talks about him. Thibs and mike d are overrated, but spo is not.

Spo is rated just fine, no overrated or underrated.

Funny how you don't have spo's punk *** in your list. Oh but if he wins a championship you will probably have him as the best coach in the league. :laugh2: Way to go newguy.

1. Doc Rivers: Dude was worse than Vinny Del Negro before he got the big 3, and even with the big 3 he could only manage 1 championship out of all that talent. Keep in mind he's also the highest paid Coach in a league with Greg Popovich and George Karl.

2. Mike D'Antoni: Can anyone get any worse on defense? he and the number 3 overrated coach need to join together so they can makeup a whole head coach.

3. Tom Thibodeau: His adjustment in the playoffs is predicated on Rose taking more shots, everyone knows how he plays Deng and Korver...he has the most predictable offense in the league. He and D'Antoni should consider joining forces to make one head coach.

4. Larry Drew: Seriously, is anyone even surprised at what the Hawks do anymore? first they made Joe Johnson the highest paid player last off-season then they retained this guy as coach. Maybe they have a different method of measuring success in Atlanta.

5. Stan Van Gundy: Long story short, OVERRATED.

why is he overrated and not someone like phil jackson? we all know how many rings he's won but how many did he win without 2 superstars? ZERO!

thibodeau took them further in the playoffs than phil did. the bulls just ran into a team with better talent.

I can't even count how many times there were fire Spo threads in the Heat forum and dnewguy was the ring leader. Now that they have a 2-1 lead in the Finals Spo is great and the other East coaches are overrated.

Because Spo looked down his bench one game and found Haslem to play AFTER he played Jamal Magloire now he looks like a genius. :laugh2:

I just don't understand how justinnum and dnewguy still have accounts at this place.

This is just too funny.

During the regular season Derrick Rose MVP campaign the consensus among Rose haters was "Rose isn't the MVP, it's Thibs amazing Defense that has them doing so well"

Imagine my surprise that as soon as it comes to overrated coaches Thibs happens to make THOSE SAME PEOPLES list.

My, the irony is too much!

This is a bait thread and you are all part of it. Like I said, Spo is a good defensive coach. He handled the pressure well. He's not overrated nor is he underrated. He's good enough to win a title. His offense could be a lot better.

I LOVE how a HEAT fan makes a thread about coaches being overrated, and then calls each coach of the top 6 eastern teams (except the Heat) overrated. Take your 80 IQ level back to the Heat forum please.
