I've thought this for a long time. It doesn't make much sense to compete for ratings. Football, hockey, soccer, and basketball all compete with each other, yet there is this big long dead period during baseball season. I'd welcome this change.

Zingis last 3 games:

32,7 ppg
12 rpg
3,7 apg
4,7 bpg
1,3 spg

50% FG
42,7% for 3
72% FTs

Guy just returned from ACL tear being 7'2. If he returns next year in full health, he might be MVP and/or DPOY candidate.

Knicks fans are probably on suicide watch, watching Randle, Payton and Gipson along with two Andrew Wiggins they drafted.

*edit* - Knicks fans are on suicide watch on all social medias because of reasons mentioned above. Smh. Don't like Knicks, but it's crazy how bad they are runned.

I guess Kyrie and KD want to pick their own coach.

Kenny Atkinson is a very good coach and should land on his feet quickly.

I guess the Nets pursue someone like Ty Lue or Mark Jackson?

That's wild. Especially the timing. With Levert recently dropping 51 and winning big at home against the Spurs last night. Atkinson is actually the kind of coach I would have had oversee our rebuild. He helped that team develop an identity. They were really well-disciplined and played with good pace. They developed a lot of guys during his time there, including Joe Harris, Spencer Dinwiddie, Caris Levert, and Jarett Allen, at at time when they had no draft assets. He oversaw Russell's lone all-star season. That team was set up really well for the future WITHOUT Kyrie and KD, and Atkinson was big part of that.

Kind of jealous the Magic won't have a chance to go after him. He won't be out of work for long.

Jacque Vaughn is back as head coach!!! LOL
Isaac looks so out of place on our team. He's actually elite at something - MagicStarwipe

I could easily see Atlanta making a move for Atkinson. He's a really good head coach who overachieved with the roster he was given every season in Brooklyn. Atlanta is set up to be better than us next season.

Well biggest F you would be sign with Knicks and turn them around.
He made playoffs with some of the worst combinations of players i have seen.
He made walking mediocrity of D'angelo Russell look like legit allstar player and that's how they got Durant.

Pathetic move by Nets. Is Billy King still shadow GM?

Vaughn is a headcoach again. I would never guess.
Bold Predictions:
1. Deandre Ayton biggest disappointment of 2018 draft.
2. Nick Nurse becomes Orlando Magic Head Coach. (15.04.2018)

It's baffling situation.
They knew that Durant won't play. They treated whole year as pretty much bridge season.
Under him Levert started to look like good player. They are still in playoffs. What execlly he failed at?

Being Kyrie and Durant and Jordan's buddy.

This went far beyond the results on the court, believe me.
