GREAT piece. I feel like he's in the best hands HC-wise he could possibly be in, out of any of these teams. I don't agree with all Malone's decisions, but I'm no HC and no expert on all thing coaching. But he cares, he's a former PG, it's irrefutable that he's leading this team very well (look at their record), and he values Bones. This was really insightful.

I think one of the biggest challenges NBA coaches face is having to manage myriad egos to forge a cohesive unit focused on a common TEAM objective-winning. It’s the old adage: there is no “I” in team. Most of these guys were “da man” on their high school and college teams. Which makes it difficult to require them to subordinate their natural tendency to play hero ball in order to win as a team in the Association.
Not really. What you find is the pecking order is quickly established. Its nature.

Bones is lighting these guys up. 14 points on 4-4 from 3, and Denver is up 58-36 with 6:00 to go in the second quarter.
