I've coached a few different high school level sports teams and to evaluate my coaching and compare myself to other coaches I would look at three things:
First did my team win a lot of games?
Second if it was a team that didn't win many games did the players atleast show significant improvement?
Third did I get the most out of each player?
So how has Rambis been doing? I would say terrible. Before everyone joins the SnP bandwagon and says we can't expect a coach to do anything with our D-league roster lets see how much potential talent really is on the roster.
Kevin Love- I admit to being the biggest Love hater but even I know he's a boarder line all-star on a daily basis.
Michael Beasley- A great player who has the talent to be a top 5 SF in the league. Even though he is under performing he is about 7th in per at SF.
Luke Ridnour- Definitely not D-league, has reached his full potential at this point in his career and is about 20th in per for his position. I don't think 10 other teams are playing with D-league point guards.
Darko Milicic- Talent wise not D-league, consistency wise D-league.
Corey Brewer- D-league offense, NBA level defense. Usually has the toughest defensive match up and is usually able to hold his man to below average.
Martel Webster- Getting time and contributing on a playoff team makes him an NBA talent.
Wes Johnson- NBA length, athleticism, shot, and also plays solid D. He is no where near his full potential but has the talent to play in the NBA.
Jonny Flynn- Needs lots of improvement but there is enough talent/potential there to be a very good scoring PG.
So now that we've established that there are actually decent players on the team how has Rambis done?
They don't win many games so that's a failure. There are 2 huge problems with this team, turnovers and defense. There has been absolutely no progress so improvement is a failure. He also has only gotten the most out of 1 player, Kevin Love. Beasley, Johnson, Flynn and Darko all of the talent to be much much better. I'll give Rambis a pass with Darko because he's been in the league for awhile and no one else has gotten Darko to play his best, but I still think a really good coach could get more consistency out of him. That's four of our most talented players who the coach isn't getting the most out of so that's a failure.
Basically it's time to move on and find some who actually knows how to coach!
