Great players make great coaches, but its also due to the coaching they receive.
I agree great players make great coaches. and that to some degree is a criticism of phil jackson. but I think phil has given us a good resume not only of taking this lakers team pretty damn far for having nobodies but also for making great talents play together.
I think the following coaches could be approximately as successful with the spurs:
rudy tomjonvich(though not now, health)
and actually I'd say phil jackson would probably be more successful.
thats about all I got for now.
