View Full Version : Stan Van Gundy calls out Chris Broussard

What are your thoughts on Chris Broussard writing that Erik Spoelstra is in over his head?:

“Well, there’s a number of thoughts there. My first thought is that Chris Broussard has no knowledge of coaching and wouldn’t know it if he saw it. I’d like to get some specifics from Chris on what he thinks coaching is … and what’s not happening. My second thought is this, when he says they need somebody of the ilk of Phil Jackson, Pat Riley and Gregg Popovich, two thoughts on that, there aren’t many guys of that ilk period … and second of all if that’s the ilk they need, maybe they’re not that damn good anyway. And my third thing is in the game today there aren’t many guys as good as Erik Spoelstra. And I would cite a couple things rather than just an opinion. … That is the best defensive team that I have ever seen that doesn’t have size. I’ve never seen an elite defensive team in the NBA, until this Miami team, that doesn’t have size. To me, there has to be a helluva lot of coaching in there.”

Oh snap.

Glad somebody finally lets the world know that Broussard has no knowledge of basketball whatsoever. All he does is make up trade rumors that are always proven to be false.

I'd love to see SVG & JVG doing NBA commentary together.

"and second of all if that’s the ilk they need, maybe they’re not that damn good anyway."

Love this. Why would the so called "most talented team" or whatever you want to call them (most talented top 3, etc) need a Hall of Fame coach? 20+ other teams don't even have half the talent of that team, now they also need an elite coach too? Why can't the Bobcats have a Phil Jackson, they need an elite head coach more than a team with LeBron and Wade.

SVG is a moron. Spo is the problem with the HEAT. He lacks testicular fortitude and real coaching experience. HE was a AV guy before this.

Spo's defensive schemes are strong but his offensive schemes are nonexistent. I really think he's more of a assistant coach but I don't know too much about coaching so it's just a fans opinion.

I wouldnt say Spo's offense is bad when you have LeBron & Wade. Between those two, they can't figure out some kind of offense on their own? The fact of the matter is the big 2 are lazy & need a so called legend coach to fix all their problems which is disgustingly stupid in my opinion.

And as for Chris Broussard......We're talking bout Chris Broussard, not the game I love! (Allen Iverson voice)

I don't get some of the criticism Spo ha gotten, I'm not a very big basketball fan, and I'm not a Heat fan, but I've seen Spo draw up a number of plays that have worked perfectly up until it gets to the point where the play has to make the basket; the player could be clear for a wide open 3-pointer on a play that Spo has drawn up and simply misses, but then it's all Spo's fault because it didn't "work out". I love SVG, he rarely pulls punches, and he keeps it honest, you have to respect that.

SVG is a good coach and Im not a Broussard fan, but his analysis of the heat is a little too coach oriented. As good as Stan is, take Dwight Howard away and his great defensive teams because mediocre quick.

Lebron James and Dwade have a lot more of to do with the Heat's defense than Spo. And offensively they have nothing but what seems like ISO plays. I think Spo is a good coach and still growing into the role, but having a more experienced coach wouldn't hurt. Especially if he was a guy who could do a better job of getting the Heat to play more efficient offensive basketball.

Broussard is the biggest piece of garbage reporting for the NBA. He has no knowledge, nothing to offer at all. All he cares about is the Heat I dont think he even watches other games. Plus he has nappy ginger hair which is terrible

thekmp211
06-09-2012, 10:30 AM
i'll admit to jumping on the fire spo bandwagon after game 5.

i still don't think he's the right coach for the team. they only go as bron and wade go, they are essentially player coaches in my mind.

that said he's definitely got the touch on defense. and if they win tonight, who am i to even criticize whatever it is they are doing.

i don't really believe in astericks' (not in hoops anyway) but this is the kind of season that would get one if i did. but winning is winning. please just beat them boston...i want one more year of LeAnticipation

Oooor you mean he gets asked a question and answeres it honestly. Would you rather him be like everyone else and give the political response for everything?

People talk about they want to hear the truth and then cry when they get it.

06-09-2012, 11:16 AM
Part of coaching is also getting your guys motivated and ready to play. Watch how the Celtics respond to what Doc says and then look at how MIA looks at Spo. There's a difference. Spo is really good at scheming on D IMO, but he doesn't seem to connect with his players well and MIA offense needs to be a little more diverse and creative.

I'd expect SVG to stick up for Spoelstra. They were on that same Heat staff together for years, so yeah, he's gonna have his boy's back. But anyone can see that while Miami is great defensively, they look lost on offense a lot of the time if Lebron or Wade aren't creating something for them. Firing Spoelstra isn't gonna make this team better, though; but having a bench certainly would.

That is the best defensive team that I have ever seen that doesn’t have size. I’ve never seen an elite defensive team in the NBA, until this Miami team, that doesn’t have size. To me, there has to be a helluva lot of coaching in there.That's because Spo chooses not to play Centers, not because there's a lack of big men on this team. Why should a coach be praised for having a good, small defensive team when he's got the personnel to put out a great, big defensive team.

If this were Mike D'Antoni we were talking about, everyone would kill him for playing small ball.

Spo is an easy scapegoat. And while I don't doubt that part of the reason he's defends Spo is because of what happened to him in Miami, I trust his opinion much more than the users saying "Stan Van Gundy is a moron, Spo IS the problem". That's a joke to me. Hahaha

SVG and JVG should both be coaching next season. Those guys know what they are doing.

As for Spo... SVG has a point. This team has no size and yet they are great on defence. But I think that has as much to do with guys like Wade and James as it does with the coaching. I don't think highly of Spo, but at the same time, it's hard to say he's doing a bad job. He's in the ECF and one win away from the NBA finals with at team that has neither a center, nor a PG, and his GM (Pat Riley) spent this past season MLE on Shane Battier when he already had two SF. SMH. If anybody needs to get called out on not getting this team in a position to win, it is Riley. That said, I don't think Spo has the respect of the players they was a guy like Pop or Jackson has. You don't see players openly yelling at Spo and shoulder bumping him and just flat out ignoring him. He's doing something right, obviously, or he wouldn't be a head coach in the NBA, and he's doing a good job with this team, but I wouldn't say he's dong a great job.

Thank you. Chris Broussard is a journalist first, an idiot second, and a basketball analyst third.

He does not know much about basketball and always pretends he has a personal relationship with players, or some kind of understanding. He shares his points with the biggest hacks in sports analysis, as well as many clueless fans, then says things like "knowing <insert player name here>..." to try and give his points credence.

Yep if SVG was so great then why didn't the Clippers/Knicks/Hawks/Blazers even attempt to ask him about coaching their team.
