Let me preface this by saying that I like Sixers coach Doug Collins more than most. I don't think he's a bad basketball coach by any means. He knows a lot about the game. He has years of experience as a player, head coach, and TV analyst/commentator. There's no question he knows a lot about the game of basketball, and a lot more than any of us.

In fact, there's a number of things to admire about Collins. First is obviously the great history he's had with the Sixers/NBA and playing for the US Men's Olympic Team. Next is his ability to get the most of his players. Jrue Holiday and Thaddeus Young have developed into good players during his time here.
