Dont know where to ask this question but it has been bothering me. I will preface it by saying I think Pistons could have/should have won game 7, but I feel that LB let them down, didn't keep them focused, pulled players too early, didn't make the adjustments to Pop's changes (which he knew very well), in other words, he abandoned them. My question: When Joe Dumar (a guy who really seems sharp, even genius) could see what was happening, why didn't he go over and tell LB to wake up, get with it, stop daydreaming? Is he allowed to do that? Is there a written (or unwritten) rule that a GM can't do that, that no one interferes with the coach? Even when the ship is sinking, or it's obvious that the coach (deliberately or not) is not doing his job? Hey, I don't even know anything about basketball, but it was even obvious to me that Brown had stopped coaching. I think Pop knew it too. I think it even confused the Spurs, they didn't know what LB was up to.
