    Seems a little late to discover strategy, but I'm up for anything.

    Maybe the organization is taking up 3D chess?

    Could this be the precursor to the hiring of Becky Hammon?

    I fuckin hope so

    evidently she’s joining Olsheys staff. Wonder if she’ll play a role in recruiting Hammon. And no it’s not cuz she’s a woman. Seems they had some overlap in their careers in Russia and played together on all star teams, so maybe they know each other.

    Hmm. I was kind of thinking that they would promote Blaze, but I like this hire better.

    So dribbling 1 on 5 on offense isn’t a sound strategy?

    First strategic move: Dump Melo. The teams performance afterwards will make her look like a great hire.

    This seems like a move by Olshey to secure his job.

    What makes you think this job is a promotion? Sounds like professional scapegoat to me, which I think you’ll agree is a perfect job for a cat.

    Maybe the league now mandates that each team have a woman in management. With no NBA experience, what does she offer that hundreds of men lack. Clue: The first tweet comment says that she gives a good interview. A good talker. I'd have never guessed.
