and Pop gave Nazr opportunities this year. Its not his fault he wasnt the same player as last year and had a poor year. He lost his job in camp...earned it back at one point and then had lost it again. A coach can only do so much. Nazr showed problems this year even picking up the Spurs defensive plays. Thats not a good thing
An assistant coach can be added without firing another. Pop need better assistants for improving his game plan, offensive and defensive scheme. He needs to be more open to accept others opinion.
Naza shared some of the blame but coaches also need to take their share of responsibilities. Good coach motivates players, give them confidence, bring the best of out the player and convince them to accept their roles. It's not like giving the opportunities for the best players to play and the job is finished. Come on, look what Phil did during the Shaq and Kobe era. The role players play like starters. Avery also did a good job in getting best out of the players.
