    Tim maybe not outspoken but he has a commanding presence and calm demeanor players respect and respond to just like he had when he was in the court. I know if I was a player I would try to do anything at trying not to disappoint him and we all know no-one can question his staller BBIQ.

    Of course what he lacks is coaching experience but I always thought of Tim as a fast learner. The question is, is it something that a wants to do, because I'm sure if he does the position is his.

    In other words I wouldn't be totally against it

    It was awesome last night when Timmy was actually standing and Mills stole the ball and scored right after the put back dunk by LA and made it 92-88 the place was rocking for once this year and Tim gave a fist pump and was really into it when Mills made it.

    Becky was never "next in line." That's a label made up by fans. Coaching staffs aren't European monarchies, ruled by arbitrary lines of blood.

    If the Spurs are gonna have to do a hard rebuild, having Timmy at the helm would at least make it more bearable.

    I think it's obvious at this point that DeMar does not fit this team, and LaMarcus is probably on his way out the door too. That opens up some significant cap space...but the Spurs have never had much luck in the free market even when they have money to spend (sans LaMarcus, BoBo, and maybe Finley), so it's probably a coin-flip on if they are really able to upgrade that way.
    Thereís also taking on liabilities into that space and getting assets along with them. But we know the owner is too poor to ever do that.

    I honestly don't think that Becky wanted to make her coaching debut with pop getting thrown out of a game. Maybe sometime in the near future pop will take a game off and she will be the designated coach for the game

    I just posted about this in the other thread, Bonner said in post game that it was Timmy who had scouted the blazers so it made more sense for him to run the team even though he is not in line, becky is.
    Male privilege worked for Timmy.

    The success of a player coach is maybe like 10%.

    cholesterol getting into fat antonio heads.

    Timmy wont be a good coach. All time greats are usually bad at coaching.

    dosent look good for becky with so much more experience that they had to "coach by committee" even tho she is technically next in line and she didn't look to be the leader
    Hammond does not have more experience than Duncan, Duncan was calling plays in the huddle when he was a player. he was coaching opponents while playing games. He is far more experienced in the speed and knowledge of the NBA game.

    Can someone tell me why there's so much enthusiasm for Becky to be Pop's successor? The only thing I'm hearing it's because she's a female and she'll make history. I think Tim is the perfect candidate.

    Spo would come take the job from him and Tim would end up paying for Spo's personal gym.

    beck is technically number 2 but shes not a true number 2 like messina. she’ll get there with a *bit* more experience but it makes sense to default to a committee with pop ejected, led by whoever was charged with scouting the given opponent. after a year or so of her being number 2 it would be insulting for her not to be the coach when pop is out ... tbh imho

    but then duncan is goat so theres that also to consider

    Whoever said she is next in line?
    Being lead assistant coach according to hierarchy puts her there traditionally

    It's just a position that was given so that Gregg could show how woke he is.

    Timmy didn't come back to play second banana to Becky ing Hammon.

    TD being the next Spurs head coach is a future I would sign up for
    He just needs a better roster to deal with. He needs a group of players out there who have the same will to win that the Big 3 had. These guys look like they couldn't care less on most nights.

    players dont make good coaches.
    What about Larry Bird? He's the only guy in NBA history to win MVP, Coach Of The Year, and Executive Of The Year.

    The fanboy in me would love it, but the realist in me says hard pass tbh. Great players almost never make good head coaches and as soon as things got sour, Iíd start having to hate on Timmy and I donít want to live in a world where I do that tbh.

    Man, I donít know how to feel about the possibility of Timmy becoming head coach. At the moment I absolutely love watching games and seeing my favourite ever sportsperson on the sidelines but part of me worries if it doesnít work out it will affect his legacy in some way. I mean, Pops delivered 5 ships and the way people talk about him around here is not something I think I could stomach Timmy copping.
    TD, DRob, Manu and Tony delivered the championships...without them, pop couldn't deliver groceries.

    I hope you are kidding. Of the top 9 coaches all time, Pop is the only one who didn't play.

    Most coaching victories, NBA history

    • Don Nelson
    • Lenny Wilkins
    • GREGG POPOVICH
    • Jerry Sloan
    • Pat Riley
    • George Karl
    • Phil Jackson
    • Larry Brown

    Tim could suit up and do better than everyone on the floor not named Aldridge.
    He still is better than LMA..

    None of the failed Duncan level coaches had Duncan level leadership.

    Manu has way more coaching potential. Whether he’s willing to take the reins after another year or two of retirement is a whole other question.
