    Now, normally I try to avoid listening to Colin Cowherd, but I was driving in to work this morning (delayed start to the school day!) and was caught up in my own thoughts before I realized he was spouting his normal verbal diarrhea directly into my annoyed ear. But he did make one point, that most championship teams have players that end up as future coaches and GMs. Of course, a lot of the reason this happens is because they won championships (you think Danny Ainge would be a GM if he wasn't on those championship teams?), so it's kind of a cause/effect issue, but his was an interesting point: basketball IQ is an underrated quality in basketball players, and championship teams have high basketball IQs all the way around.

    So if we're looking at future front-office/coaching types, what players on this team are cerebral enough that you could see in that role? Basically, I only really see Billups, Monroe, Singler, and maybe Pope or Bynum finding a life in suits after basketball. The rest of the team really does seem to lack a high basketball IQ. Anyone else agree?

    I don't think I see any future leaders on this team except for Chauncey. Pistonpowered had an article a while ago that said Chauncey is more interested in becoming a GM.

    NBA GMs think Chauncey Billups will make best coach among active players « PistonPowered

    If Singler ever became a coach, he would definitely be one with an agenda against winning.

    All joking aside, I think he might make a good coach some day. Billups really does strike me as more of an executive type, so perhaps a GM one day. Dare I say, he would make a good heir-apparent to Dumars.

    Other than those two, Jorts strikes me as a future coach type. Moose? Maybe an assistant coach. Same with Bynum.

    Drummond's destiny is to join the TNT crew.

    NBA level coach? Nobody.

    I can see Jorts coaching in the college level. He shows the passion and has a high bball IQ from what I can tell.

    I think Bynum is too short to be a good coach.

    I agree. I think the best he could hope for is filling reports for a taller coach.

    I can see Singler, Jorts, Jerebko and Datome being strong candidates.

    Sheed - coaching now

    Billups - sone sort of management type

    Tay - future coach for sure

    Corliss Williamson - coaching now

    Darvin Ham - coaching now

    Ben Wallace - would probably show you how to hide a gun in your backpack.

    Probably the most valuable coaching available for today's young NBA stars.

    Because of your all star sarcasm we will ignore your slant at the light skin guys with probable short playing careers graduating to the assistant coaches before the end of this decade. :lecturer:.... I can see Singler taking over as the Duke coach as soon as the first gray hair is spotted in Coach K's head. Do we know how good GiGi's english is? Can he relate and convey his message to today's hip hop language players?

    I would hate to watch a team coached by Prince.

    You think he'd complain to himself during the games?

    White men just can't get a fair shake in this country.

    In my experience in managing and leading Men, it all comes down to competence and communication. You have to know what you are talking about, and you have to give your subordinates a role that they can perform, with opportunities to grow into larger roles. You have to be both a mentor and a task master. Some people don't possess this ability. As a leader, it's your job to help people perform to their best abilities, not be the boss. The job needs to be done. It's your people who will do the heavy lifting. It's your job to make sure that they have every advantage in doing so.

    I only see four possible coaches on this team. Chauncey, Singler, and KCP....maybe Jorts. These are the only four guys on this team who actually know how to play the game of basketball.

    The jury is still out on Sheed as we have not seen any of the Bigs look as if they have a clue of what's going on, so now I question what his role is.

    I am not sure what the ratio of threes was for Smith before he got here, but if he is trying to be the new Sheed from beyond the arc...he is failing.

    All 5 of Prince's players would be Tay-faking the opponents to death. When it came to crunch time, you would know a Taysolation was coming.
