    Peops, y'all been watching these African men turning around these franchises all over professional sports??? Even Eddie Jordan has the Washington Bullets playing great basketball... Marvin Lewis' Bengals are starting to get their stuff together after a rough start, and Dennis Green is building the Cardinals into a winner quite methodically... Lovie Smith has those hated Chicago Bears knocking the snot outta folks on Defense(they intimidated my Giants a few weeks ago), and though Herm Edwards and Tony Dungy's teams have been up and down a little this season, they're both still 6-3...

    Do you guys remember a couple of 4 or 5 years ago, after Garfield Heard was fired as the coach of the Washington Bullets, how he said that Black players have a tendency to play harder for a white coach, a tendency to listen and be more respectful of a White man??? Well, Gar, how you gone explain the above-mentioned cats, and their success as coaches, bruh??? How can you explain Terry Porter, and his success with the Milwaukee Bucks last season, or my man, Byron Scott's taking the perennially terrible, New Jersey Nets to the NBA Finals 2 years in a row??? It aint about who's talking, its about what they're sayin', sun(smile!)

    I don't think it will be long before we are seeing 2 African men standing on opposing sidelines at the SuperBowl and the NBA Finals... I don't think it'll be long, either, to see 2 brothers or sisters coaching on each bench during March Madness's final game, either... These Brothers and sisters(Vivian Stringer)have major leadership ability, management abiltiy, and coaching mastery, and it is time the world wised up to that fact... I'm having sweet dreams about my homeboy, Willie Randolph returning the METS, the AMAZINS, to the world series in the near future... Willie and I grew up in the same neighborhood, and I just wanna see that brother succeed so bad I can taste it!!! :welldone: What are you alls thoughts on the power, efficacy, and majesty of African American coaches??? What is their impact, and how far can we see them go??? What are your opinions on this???

    Peace!
    Isaiah

    In black dominated sports like Basketball, who's better able to relate to these athletes than Black Coaches? Props to them all!

    Rich and Pan, Chicago is blessed with Dusty Baker as the manager of the Cubs, too! It wont be long before brothaman has the Cubs in the series... He'll have to get past my man Willie and the Mets, but hey, I wont be sad if either makes it there...(smile!)

    Peace!

    Brother Isaiah:

    Good thread, Good points, but you are an African-American coach too short:

    SYLVESTER CROOMS!

    My/our brotha had his boys up against FLORIA (The "D" is missing because they have no Defense) a couple weeks back, and beat them (A ranked team). Crooms will have Mississippi State up top in a matter of time. We will all be right there to witness his success.

    Therious, sometimes I think you're reading my mind, man(smile!)

    Yeah, Paul Silas is just really now beginning to receive his props for his coaching ability... You remember when Bobby Phils was killed in that terrilbe car racing incident some years ago? Well, the Hornets came into the Garden the very next game, and got slaughtered by the Knicks... You could just see their heads and minds and souls were with their departed teammate, and I felt for them... Coach Silas pulled that team together, though, and the following year, they made the playoffs, and spanked the Miami Heat... He got a raw deal from New Orleans, and He's going to show them how they screwed themselves now that he's in Cleveland... that is if Byron Scott was some kinda fluke(smile!) I don't believe that for a minute, but I believe Paul's a damned good coach... So is Mo Cheeks!

    Cedric, I haven't been able to keep abreast of the Sylvester Crooms piece, and that's mainly because I don't follow college football all that much... Not a lotta brothers coaching in College Football - not like Basketball... How about Tyrone Willingham??? I think he'll have Notre Dame back on top soon, how 'bout you???(smile!)

    Peace!

    so true Dusty will get his shot but i feel within the next two season Lovie Smith of the BEARS
    will have a great chance and guide this team from the low ranks to a divisional champ i truely
    believe this will come to pass soon if he still be in CHICAGO as head coach of the Bears
