Hall of Famer Chuck Daly blazed trail for other coaches
By Rob Peterson, NBA.com
Posted May



Coaches and players throughout the league have praised Daly's impact on the sport.

"You hear players all the time say that Oscar Robertson, Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Dr. J or Larry Bird kind of paved the way for the current NBA players to make the type of money they make or live the lifestyle they live and be known as the best players in the world of basketball," Cavaliers coach Mike Brown, the NBA's Coach of the Year, said recently. "And Chuck Daly has done the same thing for guys like myself and Eric Spoelstra and Lawrence Frank. He's paved the way.

"He's allowed us to make the salaries we make. He's allowed us to, in people's eyes, be held in a high regard in terms of the level of where we're coaching at. Without pioneers like him, guys that paved the way for guys like us, we wouldn't be enjoying the fruits of their labor like we are right now." http://www.nba.com/2009/news/features/0 ... index.html

RIP, Chuck. I'll always remember him for the Bad Boys days in Detroit, and those championships they won and those series against the Bulls and Lakers.

Didn't care for the guy because I'm a Laker fan but I HIGHLY respected the man. RIP Chuck.
