    It's harder to win consistently at the very top of the food chain,
    than be an also-ran with super players and a billionaire owner.
    Boston demanded more from Doc than Dallas does from Carlisle.
    And how tough do you think Sterling made Docs' life this year?

    And Thibodeau only produced the Defensive Player of the Year.
    Unless you think that Player of the Year produced himself.

    This is insane. He won a championship three years ago.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_current_National_Basketball_Association_head_coaches

    Among active coaches he's #4 in career wins, #8 in career win percentage, #4 in wins at current job, and he's one of only 3 coaches on your list with a ring, and it was a masterful coaching job. Two of the guys on your list have been head coaches for only ONE year! No offense, but your opinion is CRAZY. What is your metric exactly?

    Yeah, and yet he barely made the playoffs with an all-star roster.
    Phoenix was climbing us his anus and nearly took over their spot.
    Three years ago doesn't cut it...and the dude looks like Jim Carey...only dumber.

    Starting watching Rick when he was at Virginia and liked him all the way through his Celtic days where he was around a couple winners.

    IMO you count how good someone is with rings. Those with one top those without any, but fall behind the greats that won many. Rick appears to be a top four coach at the moment with three other's who have won it all.

    I am with you. In Houston Parsons had a coach who believed in him. Will that be the case in Dallas? Who knows. No matter how good Carlyle is or isn't as a coach, we knew that McHale had confidence in Parsons and a defined role for him.

    Maybe the money will trump whatever Carlyle's view of Parsons is. Time will tell if Carlyle will can keep Parsons confidence up through bad shooting nights and slumps as they did in Houston.

    So...you have no metric for why you think he isn't a top 10 coach? When did he have an All-Star roster lol? One Dirk does not make "an All-Star roster". They beat the Heatles the year they won it all, with JET, Tyson Chandler, and Shawn Marion as key supporting players to Dirk lol...your opinion is entirely arbitrary and based on absolutely nothing concrete.

    That you are discussing him looking like Jim Carrey as some sort of critique just underscores how perfectly illogical your opinion is.

    I don't see anything wrong with Parson's comments.

    A GM saying that publicly about your former player is far less cool, imo.

    What's wrong with Cuban as an owner? Who else loves the game, loves his players and fans as much? I was dying for him to buy the Cubs. I certainly wish the Bulls owners cared as much about the game and as much about winning, but then again, they didn't attend college at Indiana, them make billions of dollars outside of sports before becoming owners, then only for the pure love of the game. I don't even know if the Bulls' owners even like the game.

    Cuban can be a total jacka$$ at times, but its hard to criticize his passion and to me that is what sports should be about. I'm starting to like the guy. If I was a Chicago fan, I would much prefer Cuban over what you have. Totally agree. When it comes to sports teams' success, ownership is a huge difference maker.
