fuss and fight and show disrespect for black coaches.
that's true for some players , but the thug life players don't care
who they playing for they will explode , and u have some great
player who respect the facts a black coach is at head and will
give 100% play night after night the NBA has become a side
show today more then playing the game hard and having fun.
I agree brother Rich, in addition many black coaches get stuck with young & inexperienced teams. The only time I've ever really seen a black player refuse to play for a black coach or try to get one fired was Jason Kidd (to Byron Scott). I lost a lot of respect for him as a result (the little that remained after he beat his wife that is)!
check the situation in Toronto.
check the situation in Denver where Micheal Cooper was replaced by a has been white coach.
Cooper has multiple championships.
why wouldn't Carmelo play for him?
check the situation in NYC.
and yes, the situation in NJ.
is Kidd supposed to be black?
The Knicks have sucked for quite some time under black & white coaches...you might have a point about Denver...but that is a underachieving franchise too!
First, you have to find a black coach who can care less about how many points you can score a game. After that, make sure that he is there to strictly discipline, and not earn money. I just don't get why you have to take steroids and vitamins to enjoy the game. What ever happened to practicing?
it's true we have a few silly players and Pan is right lot of those teams
are very off and really don't have what it takes but i think the way Black
coaches teach is a more tighter and better work force as to a white laid back
coach so players seem to reject to a black coach .
Funny you say that James, I felt that way about Gary Payton, fighting for Nate McMillon to get the coaching position with the Sonics and then acting an *** when he couldn't control him. I'm glad we didnt let that old GLOVE come back to Seattle.
Seattle has a good team this year. You guys should be proud. What about in Cleveland though? They're doing good this year and everything seems to be coming together. With the exception of the Eric Snow incident. It does seem that way though doesn't it? I don'tknow how good Michael Cooper was as a coach though. I mean, in Denver, they just stopped playing all together. Same in Minnesota. I think most of the blame is just on the players not being willing to play for anyone. There are alot of underachievers in the NBA until their last year of their contract. Then all of a sudden people start playing like All-Stars. The perfect example of atheletes not playing for a black coach is in Portland though. Man, they constantly let Maurice Cheeks down, and they have a good roster. I feel bad for him because you know he knows the game.
The Charlotte Hornets played hard for Paul Silas for years, and he is making the Cavs look good now. It depends on the coach (not necessarily black & white). Portland is a toxic team...they didn't play for white coaches either! Some of these new "negroes" don't respect anybody, and won't play for nobody! I think as a coach (especially an established coach), you have to be picky about which jobs you interview for! Phil Jackson isn't going to coach the Charlotte Bobcats, he is only going to go for a championship caliber team (when he walks through the door). The same goes for Larry Brown. Black coaches have to do this as well! Stop interviewing for teams that are going to lose 50 games no matter who is coaching.
