Doug Collins?

With the Pistons/76's game tonight, and the fact that he's resigning at the end of this season, could you see Collins as a better option than Lawerence Frank?

Having not watched the NBA till 2000, I don't much about his first tenure in Detroit, just through wikipedia I've seen that he was fired 45 games into the 97-98 season with a record of 21-24, having gone 54-28 the season before.

With limited research the same things come up in describing Collins he's brilliant, he gets guys to play above their talent, he's tough, and eventually he grates on the players because they can never live up to the effort he wants from them.

If it's not Collins, I guess my question becomes are these the types of traits that would push the talent we have on the Pistons to a hire level? Or do our guys (by guys I mean the ones who are the building blocks Monroe, Drummond, Knight, Jerebko, Singler, Middleton and the last year guys Stuckey and Villanueva) need a "players coach", that is not as tough but better at the x's and o's? Someone like say Phil Jackson (obviously not him but if you can think of another example throw it out there).

What kind of coach, in your opinion, elevates the Pistons? Feel free to bandy some names about.
