Getting into literal fistfights with your players, and giving the NCAA the middle finger suggest a "my way or the highway" mentality.  Are there other mentalities in that era too? Sure, "my teams are arrogant and obnoxious" is a pretty good summary, but "I don't discuss basketball, I dictate basketball" is very much similar to a "mworth" mindset.

The horse is dead. Quit beating it. You’re just channeling Chico -arguing just to argue. And believe me, Lenny has forgotten more about Al than you’ve ever known about Al.

Al’s only “my way or the highway” was on the defensive end of the floor. He otherwise encouraged individuality in almost every other facet of his coaching and leadership.

Al’s only “my way or the highway” was on the defensive end of the floor. He otherwise encouraged individuality in almost every other facet of his coaching and leadership.

It's a hypothetical, in the offseason.  You are by no means required to read or participate in the discussion. 

Lenny almost certainly knows more about Al than I do, that does not mean that Lenny would know what would go through Al's head today.  Neither do you, and neither do I. 

As for your last statement, that is certainly your opinion, there is evidence to both support and refute that opinion.  When Bo approached him about designing the unis, he encouraged him, when Bernard approached him about playing more he tackled him.

For the record, a "my way or the highway" mindset for a coach is not exactly a slight.  Sure you get input from players/coaches/AD's, but in any position (not just coaching), if the buck stops with you, you should and do get the final say on just about everything.

One of the reasons he wasn't a "lifer" is because he wanted to make more money, which is why he left for Medalist in the first place.  It would be a lot harder for him to walk away from the salaries he would be making in either college or NBA now.

All true. Also true that Al didn’t love coaching basketball like many of his contemporaries. Best guess? He would have coached longer and almost for sure in the NBA - but I still don’t think he would have been a lifer. Just not who he was imo.

Totally disagree, the NBA is work, Al did not really like to work, barely made it to practices.  Was a free spirit.  Secondly,  Al was all about making money.  The money
in college for good or even bad coaches (Wojo) now is tremendous.  Perks all over the place.  Al with his own MU airplane, who knows where we would have gone.

This article would say otherwise... https://behindthebuckpass.com/2020/03/24/milwaukee-bucks-pursuit-hire-al-mcguire-expansion-season/

One of my favorite Al quotes, "The priests at Marquette take a vow of poverty,” he said somewhat bitterly, “and they expect you to abide by it.”
