Maybe if his name was Denise instead of Dennis.

Fun thread but I bet he’s back.

I don't care if you're old, young, woman, man, purple, blue or have minimal experience, if you show that you can't make adjustments during a game, I want nothing to do with you.

Hot names would be Becky Hammon, Kenny Atkinson, Mike D'Antoni.

I'd like Ettore Messina and Ime Udoka to be interviewed as well. Any rising star assistants?

Just like Mccarthy, and have them drive this team into the ground, before they finally realized they fired him too late.

Bud's career as head coach:

2014: eliminated in 1st round
2015: 60-22 swept by Cleveland with Love and Kyrie combining for 49 minutes all series
2016: swept in 2nd round
2017: eliminated in 1st round
2018: 24-58 record
2019: 60-22 backdoor swept in semifinals
2020: 56-17 on verge of getting swept in 2nd round


I'm still firmly in the Bring Bud Back camp but his teams have never overperformed and that's a concern.

I don't think they'd can him unless Giannis demands that they do. Which he won't.

Can we bring back the player-coach after we bring in CP3?

LED/Horst will talk about the “unusual” season and things were clicking before the break (we were struggling before the break). And we’ll roll back the same crew +- a couple of scrubs. Maybe Bud tries to bail like he did in Atlanta.

Jerry Stackhouse please and thank you! Why not take a chance on what could be Giannis’s last season?

Sadly this is reality. No one in the organization has any balls.

Atkinson would be a solid hire. Wouldn't have me over the moon but it would be a really solid, safe hire.

I think you mean brains. There is probably far too much testosterone in the ownership group. Clouds their judgment.
