    If you don't have me on ignore, you know I have been advocating that Portland hire a female to the coaching staff.

    SA and now Cleveland have female assistants.

    I hope the Blazers take a look at someone like Dawn Staley to replace Vanterpool

    Why does it have to be a woman? Hire whoever you think is best. If it’s a woman it’s a woman.

    I'd like a good X's and Os coach who can support Stotts' decision making or a defensive specialist.

    I'm guessing we will get Steve Blake, which I wouldn't be mad about. Perhaps he can dress in drag to satisfy MM.

    edit: I guess he got signed with Phx

    Thibbs would be too big of a personality IMO. He'd want to usurp power.

    he's been taken down a peg since he's lost two coaching jobs....he was the best assistant defensive coach in the league with Doc...he's not an alpha...Dame loved him at Team USA camp...Stotts is the calm that a guy like him needs to be around...he was just not head coach material but probably the best asst coach around

    Are we promoting Tibbets to lead assistant? We should really have someone with a strong basketball coaching pedigree.

    Why bother hiring anyone? Do you think we’re contenders?

    I heard that's probably what will happen...but Tibbets was the offensive assistant and Vanderpool was defensive

    If we can keep Thibs in check, he would be good. Not sure he would mesh well with the McGowan and Olshey though.

    CB is gonna get a GM gig. I don't see him coaching. GP IMO is kind of an ass and I don't see him being a good teacher/mentor.

    Wish we could've hired Ime Udoka. We'd get to see this every night.:

    Sadly that ship has sailed.

    Gary Payton would be a terrible coach in the modern game...he's said so himself...he hates the way the game is called and says he couldn't play defense like he did in the modern era
