I'd be embarrassed if I was a fan of one of the teams involved with coaches making calls. That's pathetic and shows how much of a loser you are. I almost guarantee Thibs is one of them. Bulls were super salty after the Heat dominated them.
Every team has Mark Cuban wallet sized files full of the other teams plays, names of those plays, hand signals for those plays, counters for those plays and way more info than fans even know about. Every coach worth a damn in the NBA can step in practice without hesitation and run the other teams offense and defense to a T.
I think people are running with a comment being blown up by media. I guarantee you many coaches are good friends with Rick Carlisle as well as Spo and in their daily convos are offering advice. That's just what coaches/friends do. Look at all the coaches that came to Larry Brown's aid when the Knicks fired him. Lots of teams made sure to use all the info they had to bust their a.ss. sh*t, George Karl, Doc, Popovich and SVG still hold grudges against them for that.
Its not anything new and Stevenson/The Media is portraying it as something bigger when it isnt really.
