When Jerry West speaks, you listen. The man is the logo of the NBA for crying out loud.
Gregg Popovich is known for doing more with less. The future hall of fame head coach obtained his fifth NBA Championship this year, which has Jerry West signing his praises.
“I’ve never seen a better coach than Gregg Popovich. He does less than more. But having said that, when he gets less, he develops it into something really good. They have a great development program down there.
“For a coach coming into this league, if they don’t hire people who are really competent, to take these young kids who haven’t made it somewhere but have talent and build a system they can prosper in, but more importantly to get these kids shoot the ball. When they gotKawhi Leonard, he was not a shooter. It tells you the significance of what they’ve done internally to improve their team.”
Lakers Nation will not be happy to see their legend proclaim Gregg Popovich is better than Phil Jackson.
