K is still a great coach. Duke is the only team TB doesn’t have a winning record against, and I believe it’s because K knows how good Tony is, and he brings his A game when the two teams play.
That said, I’m not sure at this point K is motivated to bring his A game 30 nights per year in the regular season. The 5 star/OAD model pretty much assures he’s going to win at least 20 of those 30 on sheer talent gap.
K cares a lot about his legacy, and he wants to put a lot of space between him and #2 on the all-time wins list. His current model piles up a ton of wins, without spending a great deal of time on development, and without having to worry about a rebuild every few years with guys that aren’t all 5 stars. Does anyone think at this point in his career, that K would have went 23-7 with our 2019-20 roster?
