    ===========================
    SUNS - Frank Vogel

    ===========================
    Heat - Erik Spoelstra

    Is he really all that good? Outside of last year where they played the luckiest 2 series in history, he has done nothing without lebron. They underachieve every season despite having 2 all nba level players

    The Celtics might not just have Mazzulla but people forget Sam Cassell, Rondo and JVG in that building behind him....

    That is a mighty staff.......

    I like Spoelstra but the Heat do not have a clear superstar, I think Butler is not a legit superstar.

    He is just a very good Playoff performer.

    I think butler is massively overrated also but him and bam are still allstar level players, and yet they struggle to be in the top 8 in a trash conference

    I would have Lue and Spoelstra at the top...Nurse a hair below that....not really sure past that except that Kidd wouldn't be close to the top.

    Question is how many will be fired now
    Hamm and Vogel Gone

    Would anyone say these were the two worse coaches?
    Did they mismanage their squads?
