    Also, the franchise that continues to get it wrong, and he mentioned bowie and Oden. That just feels lazy as all hell.

    Not fully... how that happens is that you sit the rest of your good players while trying to tank on top of losing Dame and CJ. This article is absolute nonsense.

    No coach can make a bad team good. The right coach can make a good team better.

    Even you have to admit this is ridiculous. NO COACH WOULD HAVE LED US TO A RING LAST SEASON, LET ALONE THE PLAYOFFS!

    Especially when you take into account a team that won a title was *already* really good in the first place.

    But Stotts sucked so Chauncey should have been able to win a Championship! Those other two did. Makes total sense to me.

    During October and November 2019, the website's entire writing and editorial staff resigned due to conflicts with G/O Media management over a directive to "stick to sports" content only.[3][4]Deadspin began publishing content again in March 2020. The site has suffered after the mass resignations, reportedly attracting only 10.22% of its previous readership.[5]

    Deadsphin is an even bigger joke than it used to be so idk why anyone cares what they have to say these days

    I agree with Dame out Blazers chances about nil. I am responding to argument that Hammon inherited a good team. She did. But they didn't win it all before her.

    Why do I feel like even commenting about this piece of trash story here is some sort of win for deadspin and this writing.

    Sorry, your point is moot.
