        U can't judge NBA coaches very well. NBA players r notorious for mutinying on coaches all the time, especially recent college coaches who actually coach team ball movement ball. These guys don't want that, they want get mine ball. Everyone of these guys knows the game inside and out.

          Pitino couldn’t win because every team in the NBA pays players

            I would’ve been cool if they had signed Larry Legend instead of Pitino, but I doubt the team would’ve been bad enough to draft Pierce. I guess it all worked out 🤷🏻‍♂️

                  2 former college coaches turned NBA coaches passed on drafting two high school players who turned out to be hall of famers. Kobe should've been a Net and McGrady should've been a Celtics

                      Thats why Larry Bird was their last MVP and Paul "i'm better than Dwyane Wade" Pierce wa their last FMVP. The Celtics have always content but not in the championship conversation for quite long time, 2 spans to be precise from 2010 to 2019 and 1986 to 2007 thats nearly 3 decades of hunger, desperate for Championship. Hope they didnt end up from being one the best team in the league history to a mediocre contender.

                                I absolutely hate when coaches say that BS. It's a surefire redflag that the coach would slit his own players throat if it meant a little extra shine for him. "I look at them like my children and I love them!"

                                BS you can't cut your kids, you can't push them until they are about to die, you can't trade your kid for other kids and you can't sign them to million dollar contracts to make them put up with your BS. Anyone at the college level or higher is a lying sack of crap if they say that. I respect honest coaches far more who say, "It's a business and I have to do what's best for our organization but I also care about our guys and try to do what's best for both but sometimes that's not possible."

                                Calling them kids just means you don't respect them as adults with their own agency and ambition and intend to steamroll them at every opportunity while pretending it's for their 'own good.'

Doc in that position without the defensive anchor of Garnett still would have been in the lottery, including 18 straight losses. There is a chance of it happening, as long as this took place in the first 7 years of mcgrady pierce and allen's contract (7 years would still be rookie extension). Look at tyre golden state warriors. Those were drafted rookie contact deals to get all those stars together.

It wears green and white as well as having cloverleaf as one of its signature symbols, the same as one of Pitino's former teams - the Boston Celtics. His biggest contribution in Athens - winning the Greek League and Cup as well as 6th in the EuroLeague .
