Wait a second.   You left off the obvious choice, a guy we know will get along well with Trae.

OK . . here we go.

Great question.  I’ve long wanted to see Sam Cassell get a gig but I don’t know about here.

I’m going Chris Quinn.  Who?

He’s Spoelstra’s right hand man of 7 years, their head of development, former player and Notre Dame guy.  That’s all I know about him but he’s more than likely extremely intelligent and hard-working, the things that always shine on the floor when you watch the Heat.

Atkinson is no different than Pierce.  Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ................. just get Kidd.  Heyul, at least we'd be relevant in the media.  Trae can put up the middle finger to Nash and say he got a champion to mentor him now.

The first move that Nate did, was put Bruno back in the lineup.

Does he do it again?  Or is the mandate to play Okongwu?


At any rate, if he's still going with Collins at C and Gallinari at PF for significant stretches in the game, nothing will change.

Nate McMillan hopefully will work out but I like Jeff Van Gundy.

Anyone out there you think can turn this thing around?

No.  You start by getting rid of Schlenk.  Then you start interviewing for a new GM and a new coach.

I want to give Nate a fair shot but Kenny Atkinson is my guy if that doesn't work out.  Dave Joerger also deserves another shot at a HC job.

My people tell me Mark Jackson is going to get a shot if he wants the job. This is my Bay Area connect. He worked with the Warriors from 1987-2001. 

I have :

1. Kenny Atkinson

2. Mark Jackson

3. Chauncey Billups

4. Jeff Van Gundy

5. Dave Joeger

6. Becky Hammon
