Kupchak was further pressed about the possibility of a coaching change being dictated by a player.
"This organization has a precedent with that kind of a situation and I think we learned our lesson," Kupchak said, referring to when Paul Westhead was fired in the early '80s and the decision was tied to Magic Johnson's wishes. Whether that was the real story or not, both Johnson and the Lakers organization took a hit for how it was perceived.
that lesson? they hired pat riley.
@WojYahooNBA: The Clippers have fired Vinny Del Negro, source tells Y!
Isn't VND technically a coaching FA? Doesn't mean the Clippers still shouldn't have fired him.
This is a golden age of sports journalism.
What's Noel's upside? Ibaka? I mean, with that raw offensive game, can you really expect better than that in the three or four years? And he's coming off of a serious injury?
Wow, the NBA really doesn't want the Spurs in the finals.
I don't know how I could be more reasonable. It's absolutely should not be a flagrant. But it is called a flagrant in today's game.
Do others think that Allen was faking his head pain after he went down on what was called as a flagrant? JVG pointed out that his head didn't appear to contact anything but air, but selling the head injury certainly raises the flagrant presumption for the refs.
Additionally, Manu being hurt by an opposing player selling a call doesn't strike me as the greatest injustice in the history of basketball.
Not to be a dick about this, but I don't even understand why this is an argument. Everyone appears to agree, even Maxwn.
Well, again, bad calls happen sometimes.
I'd just like to say that the Spurs home silver jerseys look great.
Noticed that last night too, and agree 100%. They are a great combination of unique, classic, and stylish.
Considering the PGs we already have making All Star teams and award teams - Westbrook, Rose, Paul, Irving, Rondo, Parker - that next level down (and there's levels in that group too), it's just going to be very hard for him to get that secondary consideration, even if you're properly evaluating him as a prospect. It's just a super stacked position and it's going to be hard to crack that recognition level.
I didn't see a ton of college this year. When I did, I didn't think McLemore was some super player either. I think he's a better fit though.
Assuming that he's expected, eventually, to recover 100%, the injury makes me more likely to take him. He's definitely no David Robinson, who makes you an instant contender. I'd rather my team suck next year and get back to the lottery than make a run at the 8 seed.
Lebron needs 22 points tonight to pass Rip Hamilton, Dennis Johnson, and Reggie Miller on the career Conference Finals scoring list. That would put him in 12th all time. Active players ahead of him are Duncan (11th) and Kobe (4th). Kareem is a pretty solid first.
I predict Trey Burke or Cody Zeller as the big bust.
With Zeller, I don't see a bust so much as a guy with a low upside. As long as you know you're drafting a back-up center, you probably won't be too disappointed.
The super short arms worry me.
Ouch. Didn't know that. Give me wingspan every time in the NBA.
Also at Ford having the TWolves draft a PG
Westbrook, Rose, Paul, Irving, Rondo, Parker
Burke was a very good 3 point shooter when I was watching him. I think that separates him from Augustin and Jennings some.
I thought maybe Ty Lawson might be a good comparison, but Lawson was a much better shooter in college. Maybe sort of a middle ground of Lawson and Jennings.
I notice that people are listing the point guards they figure to be the best for the next several years without mentioning Lillard. Does no one see him as having star potential?
