Actually he turned us from a 25-30 win team to a playoff team in 3 yrs. You dont know what you are talking about.

Dude, you live in the moment wayyyyy too often. Hollins is a great coach and they just really, really shot themselves in the foot with that monumental collapse in game 1. If they win that, I think they're up 3-1 in the series right now.

Hollins is fine, don't be surprised if you see this series still go seven.

He always has the deer in the headlights look in the 4th quarter. I'm not a fan of his adjustments.

I wonder what that lady was telling him near the end of the game. Maybe she said, "If you lose, there will be some ***** waiting for you at the end of the night ;)"

He's a good coach, but I don't agree with some of his rotations. There are times where he leaves Marc on the bench for too long, and in this series he needs to play Speights a lot more. Still a very good coach, better than Vinny easily

I definitely have lots of respect for Hollins coaching this young Grizzlies team. Sometime last year, the Grizz were playing the Nuggets and Kenyon Martin rejected the ball into the stands. Martin asked the fans to throw the ball back to him, as a trophy of his accomplishment. When the fan threw it back to Martin, Hollins swatted it away. The coach stood up for his team, much respect!

Damn people live way to much in the moment. Hollins isn't bad, he brought that team into the playoffs and seems to handle them decently. Same stupidity in calling for Corbins head.

Gay stagnates the offense. 8 for 25. I don't know how you could come away from that game thinking anyway other than Gay is the biggest problem on their team. He hardly looks to pass; he drives in and just throws up garbage.

I really think Mayo is the better player for this team. He may even be the better player overall even though his individual scoring talent might not be as good. Gay is way too selfish.

For not telling him that he needs to pass the ball to Zach and Marc and if he does not oblige then sit him.


Gay and Hollins are taking the Grizz out of the playoffs too early this year.

This I do kinda agree with. Gay has really been hurting the Grizzlies and he should be benched since he doesn't know how to pass the ball.

Personally, I like him a lot. Think he's done a great job with that group.

I think he's a very good coach, but not great. A great one wouldn't have let a 24 point lead blow away in 8 minutes.

He is game plan against CP3 in OT was pretty atrocious as they pointed out on Inside the NBA afterwards. I think they trapped CP3 on one play and that resulted in a turnover. The other plays they let him do what he wanted. A coach that can't make an in-game adjustment like that cannot be called a good coach.

He's a very good coach. Look at what he has done to turn Memphis around since he has been there. He has done a tremendous job developing the talent around him, creating a system in which players thrive in and his ability to get the players to buy into his defensive strategy and overall game plan has Memphis being one of the better teams in the NBA. He also has very good communication skills and the players seem to enjoy playng with him as he is a player's coach.
