If Pop had coached the heat in the James era, could they have beaten Jordand Bulls regular season record? Pop is just amazing g

They win at least 3 titles.

#1.) Because he is one of the GOAT coaches.
#2.) That means he is not with SAS.

As others have stated I think they are likely to win at least one more title.

I'm not sure if they break the regular season record though because pops likely gives them a little more rest. They could but I think it's more likely they win an extra title than break the bulls regular season record.

They'd be killing it. It would take a few years until we saw the team running the offense and defense to the perfection you see the spurs doing it now, but with the talent they had they could overcome the early struggles and inadequacies. Whoever was coming out of the west wouldn't be able to match up to Pop's ability to match up and make adjustments to stop players.

They would probably have a little bit different of a roster of talent. But can you imagine the looks Ray Allen would be getting? I am sure Pop would have loved to have coached Ray Allen out there with what he does with guys like Danny Green and Bellinelli

Sound logic, can't disagree

They went to 4 straight finals. They won 27 games straight. I'm going to go out on a limb and Spo did a pretty great job in his own right....

You can't possibly say, coaches are more about fit than anything and they aren't one size fits all. Who knows if Pop could even coach them better than Spo did? This is coming from someone who thinks Pop is the GOAT.

*If Pop was the HEAT coach:

James is still in Miami.
Heat would have 3, possibly 4 Titles in 4 years.
Doubt they break the Bulls record due to minute management.

*Nothing against coach Spoelstra, but Pop is one of the greatest coaches in basketball history.

So we really have any proof that Pop could coach the personalities of Miami?

Pop has had some of the most docile stars imaginable

i think it would of certainly made enough of a difference for the heat to win 3 instead of 2 titles in those 4 years. spo sticking with bibby (who played historically awful all playoffs) as his starting point guard for way too long in their first playoffs together was a big mistake. he waited till game 6 of the finals to pull him out of the starting lineup lol. spo also started joel anthony as well, so the big 3 played with 2 almost useless players in the starting lineup that playoff run, because he wasn't ready to let the big 3 try spending time at different positions until the next season together.

however part of the problem was team make up too, miami could of benefited greatly from finding a proper center somehow, it just never happened unfortunately and they always had to battle a big deficit on the glass, and play without a rim protector.

If the late great Red Arbauch was resurrected he couldn't have coached them to 4 straight rings. Winning 4 straight titles in the modern era of basketball is pretty much impossible mainly due to injuries, playoff matchups, and free agency.

As great as Pop is he's never even got a back to back with the Spurs, even with their Big 3 in their primes.....

Simple question when did Pops ever had the best player in the league on his team?

Duncan was in the MVP conversation during his prime every year, and Parker was in it as recently as last season before he got hurt.

Also Pops coaching kid based on a team scheme so having the "best player" isn't really a necessity for him....
