NBA Players Poll: Stan Van Gundy Least Popular Coach, Doc Rivers Most Popular

Not too surprisingly, NBA players who were polled by SI aren’t too enarmored with the idea of playing for SVG, but they seem to like Doc Rivers a whole lot: “Which coach would you like to play for the… MOST? Doc Rivers, Celtics 22%, Mike D’Antoni 21%, Gregg Popovich, Spurs 16%, Rick Carlisle, Mavericks 6%, Rick Adelman, T-Wolves 5%,

LEAST? Stan Van Gundy, MagicC 22%, Scott Skiles, Bucks 14%, Byron Scott, Cavaliers 9%, Flip Saunders 6%, Mike D’Antoni 4%”

    When were they polled because Flip was canned a good while ago…

    Melo voted 4 times for D’Antoni as least popular, while Amar’e and Lin voted 10 times a piece for him as most popular. No surprise Doc is numero uno, now if only those 22% were All-star caliber players and FA’s this summer so DAinge could make it happen…

    So D’Antoni is the 2nd most popular and the 5th most unpopular coach at the same time???

    Did they only ask Dwight Howard and Brandon Bass?

    of course d’antoni is well liked. he doesn’t make anyone play defense


    Doc is a player’s coach, hopefully he can have a succesful team after the big 3 retires

    Let’s poll the coaches now and ask them which player they would most like and least like on their team.
    LEAST. Dwight 99%,…

    These polls are a joke.
