That was a quick 2 min coaching search tbh

Woj took a big L tonight.
Celtics fan. :crazy:
We also face the Kings twice in the near future. I think it's time Yabu pays back some of that free money he's been given his entire career and bounces Fox for a nice 2 week ankle sprain.

Not that surprising

Saunders was just there because of his name and nothing more

Very unusual to see a full time hire (as opposed to an interim) mid season.

Its obvious they wanted Finch bad.

Getting a coach fired is basically a championship for the Knicks.

When was the last time an assistant on another team was hired when a coach was fired mid season?

But most importantly, is he black? There's no way it can be perceived as a good hire if he's not.

We're not turning this thread into a conversation about race. The general board is not here for that. Kindly avoid replying to this post to avoid de-railing the topic.

For what it's worth Finch was an assistant to Nurse for all of 2 months. He was on Gentry's staff last year.

I would've liked to see Mike D'Antoni work with Towns and D'lo. I mean defense it out of the question anyways with those two so they might as well enhance their offensive abilities with Mike's playbook...

He's not the only issue, but definitely an issue.
