I’m so confused as to why people think Juwan Howard won’t be a good coach. It’s not like he doesn’t have coaching experience?
Experience as an NBA assistant and experience as a major NCAA head coach -- with all of the recruiting + player development + mentorship responsibilities that come with that -- are quite different.
I'm not saying he won't be successful. But in my own personal estimation, it's far more likely he goes the way of other former stars-turned-coaches with limited college coaching experience (Ewing, Mullen, Isiah Thomas, etc.) than John Beilein. At a minimum, I'd be shocked if he wins at Beilein's level.
But, he's got enough firepower in place this upcoming year to win pretty comfortably.
