Jordan, Isaiah, Elgin Baylor... most former greats suck at running the show from the office.
Larry Bird and Jerry West are are the only former superstars who haven't been completely incompetent when in charge.
Yeah I remember yrs ago someone saying that the greatest atheletes can't coach because they just had the talent to perform but simply can't teach it.
I always just assumed that the true greats were simply incapable of understanding when talented players failed to live up to their ability. They don't ever fully grasp that the part of their brains that keeps them in the gym for an extra 3 hours doesn't exist in everyone.
They can evaluate skills, but not players, because it seems unnatural for an immensely talented player to not be insanely driven and obsessed with getting better.
