    Rivers had a contender the last 4 seasons and didn’t get it done. He’s one of the new, I’ll shop for a veteran team with everything in place guy. Buy a team for a season. A coach is a expert who knows how to get the right asst’s under him. Doc couldn’t teach the benchs all 4 seasons and wasn’t interested in no damn rookies. You know, like the no-namers helping San Antonio to a championship. He doesn’t even get the concept of coaching, when you look in the dictionary for coach you’ll see Popovic. He has his bench ready, all of them. He has the fire and trust in these players that gives young rookies the confidence to play. Rivers has a max 7-man rotation. Williams, Randolf, he really didn’t use his quality bench players because he didn’t know what he had. You can’t know unless you play them good minutes and coach them while their playing. Impart confidence not bench them the first mistake they make. Oh wait that must have happen to him on all those great Hawks teams.
