Non-Phil Jackson Triangle Offense Head Coaches - 109 Wins, 392 Losses

Jim Cleamons -- 28-70 Dallas

Tim Floyd -- 49-190 Chicago

Kurt Rambis -- 32-132 Minnesota

Can we please put a merciful end to this offense, whose primary design is to get people out of the way and get your star the ball with 6 seconds on the shot clock?

Winning roughly 22% of your games means the teams forced to run this offense without Michael, Pippen, Shaq or Kobe had a typical season record of 18-64. Rambis's annualized record is 16-66. Jim Cleamons' was actually WAY better (around 28% wins, so 23-59) and Floyd's????? Well, again, around 17-65.


Scott Skiles: The good thing is you have a lot of ball movement and player movement in your offense. The bad thing is you have a lot of ball movement and player movement in your offense,'' the Bucks coach said. "The ball ends up in somebody's hands with five seconds left on the shot clock that you don't want to have the ball. When you have the great bailout players, they can just go manufacture shots at the end of it, it makes it all look good.''
