Sports Illustrated polled 134 NBA players about the coach they’d most and least like to play for, and Lawrence Frank received four percent of the least vote. That means at least five NBA players don’t want to play for Frank.
Is that significant? Maybe, maybe not.
It’s most important that the 14 players in Detroit’s locker room want to play for him, and how many of them participated in the survey? How many of the players who chose a different coach they’d most most like to play for would have picked Frank second? How many players picked Frank just because of his record without taking a more nuanced look at him?
I wish Frank would’ve fared better in this survey, but the fact that he didn’t isn’t necessarily telling.
