Vegas odds on Brooklyn's next HC. Man oh man I want Jason Kidd inexplicably to get Round 2 as Brooklyn's head coach after the last debacle. Tim Duncan as the Nets coach would be awesome too.
Are there actual rumors that Pops is going to leave San Antonio? Being that he's 71, I always assumed that when he left the Spurs, he'd be leaving for good. It'd be surreal to see him coaching a "superteam". I can't even wrap my head around the idea of Pops trying to coach Kyrie.
Man the Free Agent Summer of 2016 was wild. The main story will always be about how a bunch of once in a lifetime factors made it so the Warriors had money for KD, but the fact that so many guys got paid so much money that year will always be amazing. Reading those tickers every day and seeing the money amounts were insane!
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency authorization on Saturday allowing public use of a saliva-based test for the coronavirus developed at Yale University and funded by the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association.
Alvin Gentry seems example 1A of how thin the depth pool is for NBA head coaches. He's coached 16 seasons and made the playoffs 3 TIMES. Granted he was in a few no win situations (early '00s Clippers and early '10s Suns) and has won a 'chip as an assistant but still, it's funny that someone as mediocre as him can get so many chances.
Saw Screamin A talking shit about the Bulls this morning while his team picked up a coach stuck in 2013 and their runner up was Jason Kidd. Dave Fizdale was on the show too and they were implying he wants to coach the Bulls and Fiz is worse than any option other than bringing back Boylen immediately after firing him.
Hmm, any of those choices are good with me. I know Griffin had domestic assault charges come out the other day, but his kids said that they weren't true. It seems like a messy situation there.
He was neck and neck with Boylen as worst coach in the nba until Boylen said "If you build it the wins they will come" and compared Luke Kornet to Robert Horry. Both guys were absolutely terrible with utilizing big men the correct way. And Fiz would be awful for the Bulls.
