Again, the Blazers should have hired Hammon.
So you honestly think Billups was thinking about being fired when he was building his coaching staff?
You do come up with some strange stuff but that one is pretty far out there.
I see...that's proprietary.
You could Bifurcate that into proprietary and propulsory.
Olshey was infinitely more meme-able.
I don't know who "nobody" is... I'm certain those in the business have a good understanding of who Synder, Udoka, etc were.
Just beacuse you don't know them doesn't mean they're unknown.
The whole damn organization should be on the hot seat.
I imagine he's referring to Will Hardy, Joe Mazzulla, Taylor Jenkins, and Mark Daigneault. I think the fact that you went with Snyder and Udoka kind of proves their point.
There is a guy named Ettore Messina who coaches in Europe. My bet is he’s probably pretty good.
Those aren't real people. You just made those names up!
LOL, I should have thrown in an extra made up one
There's a woman named Becky Hammon...
There's a dog named @SlyPokerDog ...
The point is the same... You think those guys were unknown the NBA front offices? The guys in charge of firing/hiring coaches?
What the OP said was so incredibly vague, he could've been talking about Jerry Sloan and Bob Ford for all I know.
Can't be real people beause nobody knows who they are. They can't be found anywhere!
It really wasn't so incredibly vague, it was actually quite easy to understand. I got it on my first try!
OP was responding to someone who said coaches should be replaced if there is an obvious replacement that is an upgrade, and their point was it's often difficult to know that for sure. Based on the fact that we see coaches replaced every year, it isn't an obvious science that someone is a clear upgrade.
You obviously didn't understand it on the first try because I never said the replacement would be known to be better, only that they would likely be better. There has to be some middle ground between it being known who are the 30 best coaches in the world and a crap shoot. I'm under the impression that while most people here would be guessing at the ability of these supposedly unknown assistants, that most in the front office have a significantly greatly amount of information as they can ask other coaches and players what they think of them, watch their interactions in practice, etc.
The thought that Will Hardy's (or insert any coach) abilities were unknown prior to getting hired in Utah is difficiult for me to believe. Is it all science? No. Is it more known than a guess? I'd sure hope so. Paying people 7 figures to guess seems unwise.
