I know it's tacky to recycle a previously written column idea (maybe less so if you admit it at the outset), but it's time to revisit Adrian Dantley's place in Nuggets interim head coach history.
On February 25th two years ago, Nuggets assistant coach Adrian Dantley filled in for head coach George Karl who was out with the flu in a home game against the (then very good) Detroit Pistons. The Nuggets lost 98-93, which prompted me to write a column on other notable Nuggets interim head coaches...all of whom have been abject failures.
While no one would mistake Dantley for a coach doing a great job right now, he's the only interim head coach in Nuggets history to have won more games than lost, making him the best interim head coach in franchise history. Of course, if you read on below that's like saying you're the tallest midget.
