    Too bad Mauri forced him out and then went on to hire some of the worst coaches in NAB history like McFail or JBB or Pringles (if it happens)

    He won 3 more games than JVG when he had Scola/Landry instead of Juwan freakin' Howard.

    Jvg wanted juwan.

    All the jvg people somehow forgot that he got all the players he wanted.

    Why else were mark jackson and charles Oakley ever rockets?

    Truth hurts

    Completely agree. Adelman didn't F*** around. He didn't stand for that lazy play, he'd bench all these scrubs so fast it'd make their heads spin. I like JVG a lot but Adelman was a great coach with discipline and great gameplanning skills. McHale had no strategy whatsover and JBB has no damn clue.

    This is called a strawman. We are talking about coaching ability, not talent evaluation. With the same team, plus Scola , Landry, Brooks, Adleman had a 17th ranked offense vs JVG's 15th with Juwan Howard.

    JVG was not a good GM, but that was CD's job.

    Rick adelman won in Portland, Sacramento and houston.

    They were great teams with ball movement.

    He walks over jvg like he was a rug

    Adelman beat a Portland team that never made it to the playoffs before. Losing to them would have been a disaster. You play different teams in different years in the playoffs, they are not equally comparable. You are using arguments of an 8 year old.
