D'Antoni would never be hired as head coach of this team.


Really. Hinkie kind of insulated Brown with a contract extension. Without that D'Antoni would have had a good chance to be coach here, if Houston had not come calling. Secondly he is a known coach that has hand success and he did not leave the organization on bad terms. Does not seem like such a reach if Brown stumbles. He knows the owner(s), has a relationship with Embiid and Simmons and he might be able to sell the team on the "offensively I can get the best out of Simmons".

First of all, he was an assistant for about 5 months. He didnt build any relationships with Jo and Ben. Secondly, he was brought in by the Colangelo's in the hope that Brett flamed out.

Harris has no connection to D'Antoni, nor does Brand.

You read way too much into a 5 month job.

He was an associate head coach. Not an assistant coach. The title alone denotes he had more access to players than just an ordinary assistant and more input into the team.

So how long does it take to develop a relationship with a player especially when you have had success as a coach for several years in the association?

How do you know he did not build any relationships with Embiid and Ben? Were you privy to all of their encounters?

Yes everyone knows he was brought in to replace Brown...that is not new information.

Perhaps you place to much importance on time and not enough on quality of that time. A lot can happen in 5 months.

The association is made up of 30 teams. You are wrong when you say Harris and Brand have no connection to D'Antoni. If you don't know about your competition then you are doing something wrong. Brand might be new to his position but he knows about D'Antoni, it's part of his job. And D'Antoni was employed by Harris. So to suggest the owner has no connection to the man is false. The guy that the owner handpicked, BC, brought D'Antoni in. You better believe BC gave Harris the 411 on why this guy was good for the team (and why he might be a better coach than the guy we have now) when he was hired.

Just for the record I am not speaking in absolutes. When the talk of replacing Coach Brown first came up one of the things that was mentioned was there were no good named coaches to replace him with. I'm just putting it out there that if D'Antoni leaves Houston, he could be a possible candidate.

Wow look at you. What a well written response. I like that logical thinking. It's like you have Sweet and Sour, BBQ and Ranch on your side.
