I dont know what you've heard, but he has been well recieved by the vets on the team. Especially Dirk, Stackhouse, Armstrong, Terry, and Dampier. They are committed to his vision.

Avery Johnson is half the man of a regular NBA player.

Avery Johnson is always getting short with people.

AJ is a mini version of Greg Popovich.

To bad Popovich is a better coach than Larry Brown and is more stable in his job than Larry Brown is, who becomes unstable at every stop.

Brown might have rubbed off a little on Pop, but Pop is his own coach. Pop is a much better coach than Larry Brown could dream to be.

meh larry is down now and popp is up. lots of ppl could have won with the roster the spurs had and to be honest there might be room for criticism of why they couldn't get by the lakers at anytime shaq was there. even the year detroit annhilated the lakers.

popp teaches solid defense but at times his offensive scheme is uninspired and really is just the sum of ginobili/parker/duncan's 1on1 ability + floor spacing. interestingly thats also what avery does, and lucky for both of them they have an abundance of 1on1 talent.

There is always room for criticism for every coach, but yavoon, are you braindead of what, mentioning the Pistons defeated the Lakers in '04, who the hell DID THE SPURS BEAT IN LAST YEAR'S FINALS, THE PISTONS.

And those Lakers teams from 2000-02 were great, it would have taken a great team to defeat them. The Spurs lost some close games in 2002 to them,even though the Series went 5 games and in 2004, Derek Fisher's shot catapulted them into the WCF and then to the NBA Finals.

And YAVOON, THE SPURS DID DEFEAT THE LAKERS W/ KOBE AND SHAQ IN 1999 AND 2003, THEY ENDED THEIR CHANCE FOR A FOUR-PEAT.

Your argument is laughable and pathetic. Spurs are playing to its personal now, like they did in the early TDs years when they had an old Admiral, and veterans.

This team likes to get up and down and will play uptempo when the other teams play that way.

Look at last year's WCF against the Suns for proof.

Pop has been "up" since he's been a head coach.

San Antonio did knock off Shaq's Lakers. In 02-03 and 98-99.

Ever wonder why they use an offensive scheme that maximizes their strengths?

But from today's DMN:

However, the league's other major piece of hardware – the MVP trophy – will elude Dirk Nowitzki, a source said. While it was unknown who will win the MVP, it will not be Nowitzki, who was lumped with Phoenix's Steve Nash, Cleveland's LeBron James, Detroit's Chauncey Billups and the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant as legitimate candidates.

****.

Dirk wont win it until he beats the Spurs.

I know it's not fair because the other candidates are not held to that standard, but he will have to overcome a little bit more than the other guys. The only other candidate on the list that is held to Dirk's standard is Billups and he wont win it either.

MVP is a popularity contest. Dirk isnt very popular.

The MVP vote is not a popularity contest, it is a vote for who is the best player in the NBA. Dirk is no where in the vincinity of being the best player in the NBA. He is a solid all-star reserve.

That's funny.

The all-star voting is even more of a popularity contest!

If shoe commercials and ESPiN highlights make the player, then Dirk is one of the worst players ever to lead their team to 6 consecutive 50+ win seasons.

The MVP is also a popularity contest. If you dont understand how certain players who dont get the media attention that others do can be slighted in that situation, then it's not even worth us having this conversation.

Dirk Nowitzki is the BEST power forward in the NBA for the second consecutive season. He'll be an all-NBA first teamer for the second year in a row. That makes him one of the top 5 players in the world, and much better than an "all-star reserve". You are truly a goober. Stick to the schtick.

What has Dirk done in the playoffs? A first round exit, some second round exits, and one conference finals. Those are some pretty bad numbers for a "great" player such as Dirk. Sadly, he is unable to step up his game in the playoffs and carry his team to ATLEAST an NBA Final. Dirk can't have playoff series like he had against Phoenix last year and expect to be a viable MVP canidate the next. When you are exposed for being a 7 foot jump shooter against a terrible defensive team that leaves a bad taste in voters mouths.

And Dirk Nowitski the BEST power forward in the game? Please, he isn't even the best power foward in Texas.

What you should do angryllama is start the "Vote The Mullet for MVP" campaign next year for Dirk. Its a catchy phrase and would spread across America like wildfire. You could make shirts and everything.



His popularity would increase threefold!
