    Scott Brooks should be on the list of candidates.

    Who cares who the coach is. Roll out the balls and let them play.

    The last time the USA didn't we had an old school coach that would rather let Shawn Marion and Lamar odom play over Lebron and Carmelo.

    Popovich should be it unless he is too old or has no interest in it.

    My vote goes for The'Antoni.

    Forget defense, go all out on fastbreaks for 48 minutes.

    Spo is no PJ that's for sure. Mike Brown could have "coached" that Heat team to a championship.

    PJ is greatly overrated as a coach. His assistant was responsible for creating "his" triangle offence. And to be honest, Spoelstra out-coached Scott Brooks and utilized better line ups. Moving Lebron and Bosh to 4 and 5 respectively and cutting some undeserving players out of rotation were great moves. Don't underrate Spo either.

    Was I talking about Phil Jackson? No. That's a debate for another thread, a lengthy one at that. I was talking about Spolstra. He still has stuff to prove as a coach.
