    So far, it's a tie between Djordjevic and Scariolo. By beating Serbia, Collet is out of my doghouse.

    Djordjevic I have explained many times, his shortcomings and mistakes. So I will just go with Scariolo. This a very poorly put together team, in terms of roster. Navarro is not supposed to be the second SG, they can't defend and he wants to ride Pau to a medal again. Bad playbook, even worse motivation of the players. So for me, it's a close one between him and Djordjevic so far.

    Maybe add a poll, there are 12 coaches only. You can do it.

    poll is available.

    for me it was between Collet and Scariolo.
    Scariolo won it. probably the only thing he won so far on this tournament.
    Spanish players look like basketball stars in Space Jam when their talent is hijacked.
    kudos to Scariolo.

    Comment of the day by far.

    Have to agree on the choice.

    not everyone can drive a Ferrari, while waiting for Scariolo to show us that again take a look at this:

    At this time and considering how embarrassing team chemistry looked for them, i don't see how no one mentions the american coach. Watching them is just watching a bunch of stars jacking a three or driving to the basket one after the other.

    It would probably be considered blasphemy by many to go after Coach K, but you are right about everything. Still, for me this is between Djordjevic and Scariolo, and despite how much I hate Djordjevic for everything he has done this summer, I ended up going with Scariolo cause Spain looks even worse than we do right now.

    We are so lucky to have Kazlauskas. That's all I can say.

    My vote goes for Brazil coach. They play worst basketball in the tournament.

    It amazes me how we've reached the point that results don't matter anymore because they are a given.
    Funny how that embarrassing team chemistry resulted in a win against a team that beat two supposed European powerhouses relatively easily.

    You can't put that on the coach. Some of these guys have proven in the NBA to be uncoachable. Unfortunately, our selection for the national team has become a popularity contest yet again.

    that's blaming the wrong thing. There really isn't a lot of continuity with Team USA like most National teams. So the type of chemistry that builds over time never really happens.

    Has literally nothin to do with anything. Draymond, Lowry, and Butler all seem to play the game the right way just fine despite this "lack of continuity".

    Our starters are overrated primadonnas. Time to face facts on that. Cousins is the only one I actually respect as a competitor.

    I didn't say they would be terrible but I don't hold it against a team that is always so different.
    Also shocked that Boogie isn't the uncoachable player you were referring to.

    They play literally the exact same way no matter what team they're on or what the situation.

    Cousins is a Barkley type of problem. He plays angry, and he doesn't have tact or diplomacy. Fact is given how dominant he has proven to be, he should be getting the ball plenty down there yet isn't. That's always the type of player idiots who don't know basketball single out as the problem, rather than his primadonna teammates. In Cleveland it's Kevin Love and Delly and was Waiters before him. In Indiana it was Lance. You can go down the line. Give him CP3 as a point guard and see how much his demeanor changes, well other than when he gets a call he doesn't like.

    It's simple it has to be all about the bottom line. And Scariolo and Djordjevic at 1-2 have underachieved.

    I've stated this years back: Coach K is a good coach, not a God that everyone tries to perceive him to be. Team USA is unbeatable because of its players' individual talent, not system. It's basically just drive and kick.

    I agree with this. However, what he does is get everybody to buy in at least a little bit. He knows the players well enough to know what their role can be, and he manages personalities. The fact that he got Melo to buy in to playing his role and not being a black hole on offense is nothing short of a miracle.
