That said I think MDA is one of the better (he really his) coaches at drawing up a play late in a game if he needs to. But I think ultimately he'd rather just let the game play out and rely on his players and the system to find a good open look. Much of the time he can get that open shot w/ out calling a time out. The system and philosophy is that good w "his" players - A pass=>first PG, knock down shooters and someone to who can set the pick and is a threat to finish.
Nobody talks about the times when he's gotten Gallo a look late, or Felton, or Amare w success.. In many of these cases he's relied on the players to do what they do within his schemes. The same is the case for most coaches. But when the players feck it up he gets he blame.
IMO when there's a late bungle the coach is about 20% culpable in those cases on average, good coaches that is.. The worse the coach the more that percentage goes up. MDA is a good coach.
Most coaches (the smart ones), when they have great players, get the hell out of the way and let them earn it th0ugh..
