Monty Williams, the talented young head coach of the New Orleans Hornets, has won his first 7 games in the NBA – 4th all time in NBA history (per Elias). What can we expect from him, from now on? If history is an indication, it turns out ‘not much to expect’.
Here are the top 3 along with ‘rest of career’ records (to date).
started 13-0, after 212-241 .468.
started 9-0, after 31-87 .263 (including 1-7 this season)
Buddy Jeannette (BAA)
started 9-0, ended 142-203 .412
Both Frank and Jeannette were considerably younger than Monty, and Rambis was about the same age. I will be rooting for Monty Williams… then again, I am still rooting for Lawrence Frank.
