1. Silas has coached and developed great players
As stated earlier, coaching in the NBA for 20 years is a great accomplishment. As if that isn’t already impressive enough, Silas has pulled off an even greater feat, regarding the great players he’s coached, as he’s undeniably assisted in the development of many of the league’s best players.
Silas has helped develop players like LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Kemba Walker, and Luka Doncic, proving that he’s not only a great coach, but is also great at developing players.
To add color to that, former NBA MVP Stephen Curry credits Silas for developing his pre-game workout routine, which has become a huge part of his success and his ability to instantly heat up throughout the game. Furthermore, Curry credited Silas for his all-around stellar play during his rookie season, in which he averaged 17.5 points, 5.9 assists, and 4.5 rebounds, while making 43. percent of his 3-point shots.
The player that most models his game after James Harden is Luka Doncic, and the coach that was a huge part of Luka’s success is Silas.
Silas’ ability to both coach and improve players’ overall skills makes him a potentially great head coach.
