Lots of reports.


Mark Jackson up for the Knicks coaching job. Good for them.

Supposedly Dolan and Melo is what swayed Kerr away from the Knicks.

Phil tells Felton he'll be traded? For what?

Aldridge supposedly not signing an extension with the Blazers.


Nick Young declares that God gave him the name SWAGGY P!

Jackson to the Knicks would be a disaster.

Dolan/Melo swaying Kerr to go to GS, if true, is stupid because GS owner just showed you a Dolan move with removal of winning coach and Kerr has no idea how GS players/stars will take to him and his system.

Felton, they may just eat the contract but rest assured there will be multiple teams looking to pick him up if he is released.

Aldridge coming to the Knicks in 2015.

Gives him time to get fat and/or injured.

So a lot of people seem to think it was total owner overreach/ terrible decision making to sack Jackson. But he has been on the hot seat all year and a lot of people have been calling for him to be sacked locally, so I don't think it is as crazy as it seems.
HE was not a "X's and O's" guy, he did/does not have a sophisticated system or grasp of coaching the game. Which is fine if he is willing to lean on assistant coaches. When they hired him ownership also hired Malone, who is super well respected and experienced to help him along. But Jackson has feuded with pretty much everyone and created an atmosphere where his coaches did not trust him. HE threw Scalapine under the bus, chased off Malone, banned Jerry Wesdt from practice, ect, ect.
HE also was pretty lazy as a coach and refused to move to the BAy Area. He had a very young team but hardly ever practiced. Once in the middle of the season when the Dubs were pissing away any chance of a top 4 seed to inferior teams they got like 4 days off. Instead of practicing, he let the players have the time off and flew to LA to be at his church. I remember when it happened because local sports writters/talk were all basically asking what the fuck, dude. All this was made worse because when he took off he would let his assistants run practice, but would then clash with those same guys.
He was also linked to various rumours that he was looking for another Job, maybe one in LA or in NY.

Offensively he rode Curry and Klay. Klay actually was playing like 45 min a game for a while, had to be the #1 guy on D guarding the other teams best player, as well as be the second option on offensive. HE basically ended up going to the DL with exhaustion.
For all the talent they had, their offense was stagnant and depended way to much on Curry doing something stupid good. WHen they got Blake and Jamal, there was some hope that Curry might be able to play off the ball and actually get some easier looks, but he stayed as the primary ball handler throughout the playoffs.

Barnes also did not do well at all as the 6th man, but played great when he started (in for an inured Iggy) yet he never tried reversing their role, Iggy as a Manu "super 6th" with starter min.

He did get his guys to buy into playing D and rebounding and they played hard. But they always played hard. He did win, but I think that with the talent he had, which he inherited, it is not unreasonable that a competent coach could do as well.

As a fan I did not like the hire, but could live with him as long as he won. I don't see why I should be happy about getting Kerr though. SVG or Thibs would have made me wet though. All I can do is hope that Kerr continues his streak of NBA success.

Jackson would be a disaster for the Knicks.

I'm curious, where are you getting this stuff from? PBT? I personally don't think they're much more reliable than a dartboard as a rumor mill.

Article that the Aldridge quote is from states clearly that "Aldridge wants to stay a Blazer."

See I thought that originally but their owner literally said that Kerr was a golf buddy of his. So honestly they'll prob work better than Jackson + Lacob.

Most of those news are from CBSSports.

A whiner is anyone that disagrees with him. Then on top of that you're always stupid.

For all the quality of the first round, the second was pretty lame. There were some good moments in IND - WAS, and the OKC - LAC series was pretty good, but otherwise forgettable. I had a feeling that there would be an upset (Washington, most likely), but its 1 v 2. Indiana risks getting swept. I don't think OKC is playing well enough to beat SAS.

Yeah that sounds about right.

I want the Spurs to win it all, but OKC has given them fits all season.

I want to see Adams and try and piss off Duncan, that'll be entertaining if he gets a reaction from him. This might be the last chance we get.
post #15584 of 27247
Do people genuinely like Adams?? It seems everyone these days is in love with the guy and want him to get a reaction out of everyone. Just confused because I don't get the hype. confused.gif Z-Bo should have went all out imo
post #15585 of 27247
i genuinely like the dude. he's a mobile big who can defend and can score around the basket and boxes out dudes hards getting good rebounds. he also has a knack for getting into trouble, but never complains or bitches about anything. never talks back. just walks away. he was pretty decent on griffin.


what can the clips even do in the offseason to beat okc or the spurs next year? i honestly don't see a lot of options. improve the bench even more???? they already have one of the best benches in the league. what did they even do badly? i just feel like they had scoring slumps occasionally, but otherwise were pretty brilliant
