Wonte be a decision until some of the coaches still coaching have a chance to interview.
I firmly believe it will not be Sam Cassell who is the head coach (I love it) and he cannot even be interviewed right now.
Head Coach - Sam Cassell
Assistant - Lloyd Pierce
Assistant - Kenny Atkinson
be a lethal coaching group there, imo.
1) why do you firmly believe it will not be Cassell? Or was that a typo? Did you mean to say you firmly think it will be cassell? cause it would be odd to say you firmly think it will be cassell and then go on to list out possible assistants under cassell and that you think it would be a lethal trio..
2) One thing worth noting as a potential positive for Cassell. Ray Allen lists him as one of his 2 favorite teammates of all time. IMO that speaks volumes. Ray had a long, hall of fame career and played with a lot of great players, and played with lots of good veterans. Ray also is known as not the easiest guy to get along with, seems to have kind of an abrasive personality, and it's well documented that he has had a falling out with many of the guys he played with on the celtics. Apparently, out of all the guys he played with in Boston, Cassell was his favorite teammate. And out of all the guys he's played with in his career, his 2 favorite teammates are LeBron and Cassell. That's good company for Cassell to be in. Lebron - while he has been known to be a questionable teammate and questionable leader, some teammates absolutely love the guy and what can't be questioned is his insane level of basketball IQ. So again, very good company to be in. And Cassell played with Allen in Milwaukee as well as Boston:https://clutchpoints.com/nba-news-ray-allens-favorite-teammates-were-lebron-james-sam-cassell/
In the article, Allen says this about Cassell: "Toss-up between Sam Cassell and LeBron James. Sam was a guy you wanted to go to battle with. He wouldn’t quit on you and do whatever he could. He never wore bad body language."
There's just a lot of things that point to Cassell being a good choice.
