The people who hate Pop, when confronted with the reality of a bunch of championships and an unprecedented run of excellence, will always say "Well, jeez, the PLAYERS on the team were exceptional. Pop was just along for the ride, it's the players who make the difference."
Fast forward to post Big Three:
"Pop is the problem he is a terrible coach, it's not the fault of the players. Poor performance is a direct reflection of the quality of the coaching."
So.......which is it?
