    Yes but what does that have to do with Hammon?

    She's unproven as an NBA head coach...might not have anything to do with it...Patino was an assistant with the Knicks for a short spell too....I think my point was simple and clear....she might not be Brad Stevens level or she might but I don't think it's without risk hiring a rookie coach with only college coaching success.

    That's where I was a year ago, when I hardly watched the Blazers in the playoffs. Borrring.

    So in September, I looked for a new team and followed the Utah Jazz for a couple of weeks. Exum went down, apparently for the season (and later Gobert). I noticed that they have a lot less talent than the Blazers, but a better coach. The Stotts style is more exciting (and dumb). So I returned to the more entertaining Blazers, which was inevitable anyway. It was just a little show of rebellion.

    Now the Jazz are doing great. I am a double loser. What else is new.

    If they had good ideas, yes. For years I've generally been of the mind that we should be looking for new coaching talent, rather than recycling through the current pool of mediocre talent.

    No. I don't follow NCAA or Euro ball.

    okay, so I take it that you would prefer an assistant coach from college ball or Europe? I just think it would be best to look for someone with some actual head coaching experience or at minimum an assistant coach from the pros if the Blazers ever choose to get a new coach.

    This is the opposite end of the Allen Crabbe discussion: he’s paid because he makes shots; he’s overpaid because all those shots are catch and shoot shots. But when your primary scorers are also your primary ball handlers, every time they pass the ball, it needs to be to a better shooter than them, or the shot quality will always go down as the play goes on.

    Defenses understand all they need to do is double the ball handler and the chances of the Blazers scoring goes steadily downward because the other guys on the court aren’t natural shooters from distance or off the catch.

    A perfect Blazers lineup would be Dame or CJ, a rebounding center, and three 3+D guys who are actually good at the 3 and the D parts.

    You also have to have guys that can create their own shot, dribble and pass. Lillard and McCollum and Napier to a much smaller extent are really the only ones we have. A ball handling small forward would go a long ways towards defeating the double and triple teaming of Lillard.

    My only real preference is not recycling through the current crop of mediocre NBA coaches. Whether it's a current NBA assistant, or an NCAA/Euro head/assistant, or some smart dude (or lady!) from the film room or broadcasting booth, I really don't care.

    So I've been out for a few weeks getting my computer worked on (VERY expensive and torturing....not an experience I want to go through again), and I just got it back today; new hard drive and all.

    So now that I'm back, someone update me as to why Stotts is still coach. What the hell is wrong with Paul Allen? Is he that naive?

    The reason? Paul Allen owns the team, Simple as that. You not wanting Stotts as coach is really irrelevant.

    How do I know I don't like it unless I read it? How can I un-read it? It was posted to forum. I'm a part of the forum. So it was posted to me. Quit being an ass to everyone.
