The way they’re playing, it’s going to be hard for anyone to supplant Russell Westbrook and James Harden as front runners to win the NBA MVP award.

Harden has completely bought into coach Mike D’Antoni’s system. He’s transformed into an elite scoring point guard, going for 28.9 points and a league-high 11.3 assists a night. Westbrook, in his first season without former MVP Kevin Durant, is averaging a triple-double at 30.8 points, 10.2 assists and 10.6 rebounds per game.

Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown doesn’t understand this move. Speaking Tuesday on SiriusXM NBA Radio, Brown said if Jackson is going to call the shots on coaching, then he should just head to the sideline himself.

“My whole thing is being a coach, a GM and a president, you all got to be attached at the hip,” Brown said. “There’s got to be no separation between you. The players got to know it’s one voice, we’re all in this together, we’re going to do what’s right.

“I can’t figure out how you can hire a coach and tell him how you want him to Cheap Jerseys Authentic play. I can’t figure out how you can draft players for a coach that you know coaches a certain a style, and has been successful doing that style, and get him to play a style that you feel comfortable with. Then you coach. You’re talking about one of the greatest coaches in the history of our sport. Let him coach. If Cheap Jerseys China Paypal he wants to do the triangle, put it in, let him coach it, and then teach everybody around and get the players that are comfortable playing it.”
