"Everybody here has a decent body of work in some way shape or form," Crawford said. "They've proven something somewhere in the NBA. With that is a confidence that a player has, and there are egos involved."For him to be able to manage that and put people in the right positions and use people to their strengths, he deserves a lot of credit."

"He just tells me to be me. It's been awhile since I was told to just be me," Ronny Turiaf said. "I think it goes back to the Laker days when Phil (Jackson) told me, 'Ronny, just go out there and play. I trust your basketball I.Q. I trust your basketball knowledge to be able to make plays for us.'"

Vinny probably has the coldest seat in the league at the moment, but I'm sure Nets fans thought that about Avery in November. Vinny should keep his job till the end of the season no matter what happens.

he will keep his job and I'm sure the players will voice their opinions. He's got CP3 saying, "play the right way". He has Crawford who always mentions that VDN should get a lot of the credit. And he has Barnes who credits him for his "loose play" that is netting him one of his best seasons.

I'm not gonna lie I'm kind of proud of having VDN as our coach now the way he allows the players to be themselves while the discipline and focus is still there with the team and not letting the streak get to the teams head and keeping a "one game at a time mind state" really shows how far he come along just as much as the team has.

vdn for coach of the year so far. at least he should get consideration for that, no matter how much talent he has at his disposal.
