Getting back to the Head Coach search. Will anyone like a Nate McMillan want the job in Charlotte? Almost have to go with a no name assistant coach, Nate and some of the others have better options than the Bobcats.


McMillan has ties to NC so that's why he has been brought up. Still not the most appealing job but it makes it more likely for someone like McMillan.

On the coaching search... I never understood while a lot of the same NBA coaches are cycled and past around the league.... Shouldn't teams be looking for someone new who has not been givin a chance yet?


I agree. But sometimes it's the known vs the unknown.

Don;t ever complain about KT trolling.

I was mocking his trolling. I honestly figured he'd come in here and say that he was fired over being black.

A large part of it is the idea that you really need to be better than last season at almost any cost when you are a very bad team (or even a mediocre one hoping to make more playoff pushes). It isn't always about winning a championship any time in the short term. That is obviously the hope - but there are some cases where it is about hiring someone that can make a team competitive and get it to a place where it is building a solid foundation.

PLEASE!!!! This season has all ready been enough, it would be nice if all of this talk could be debated in 1 thread dedicated to this. I am not a fan of seeing almost EVERY SINGLE CHARLOTTE BOBCAT related thread turn into this poo. Please just stop or take it all to one thread.


Which thread is that?? The one that keeps getting locked?? How about I designate this thread the re-brand/racism thread.

Cool? I would love to talk in the re-branding thread about all of this, but certain people purposely sabotage it.

Then create a new one. Or dont and quit arguing the same points over and over again. One of those 2 options

This forum is becoming unreadable.

Silas' firing has nothing to do with previous discussions that were locked because of someone's own insecurities and covert hatred.

As far as the article, I love Silas, so I hate that he had to be the guy to endure this horrible season and then we just let him walk (although he'll remain on as a consultant).

I feel he should've gotten another year after we bring in our draft pick, but I guess the timing is right. Thanks for all you've done Paul.

And I do NOT want SVG, and McMillan might be okay, but I've got questions about him as well. As Wojo pointed out, it's gonna be hard to get any established coach or talented up-and-comer to take this job, so we're likely gonna get stuck with another Sam Vincent for a year or two.

Id rather we fail as the Bobcats then to conform to the wishes of racists and non fans. No ones put a gun to your head teeray. If Bob bothers you that much, the door is that way.


i don't understand. I am hoping Michael Jordan succeeds and am pulling for him 100%. That is why I go to games, watch their games, buy their gear, etc.

I want him to re-brand because I want MJ to be successful.

Honestly, the need someone young with fire and passion for the game to come in and take over. The last few coaches the Bobs have had were both really just collecting a paycheck imo. If the next coach has passion for the game then he won't care where he's coaching or if there is a superstar on the team, he'll see the raw talent that the team has and want to come in and shape it into something great.

King still waiting on the evidence of racism from the Charlotte hornets rebrand and how it's designed to alienate blacks.

I haven't been in most of these arguments. And go back and read what I have posted. I posted about Silas. Someone else decided to hijack this thread with posts and I said the same thing you did, don't bring it in every thread.

And by the way, I like KT and think he is right more times than he is wrong on many racial issues. i just think he is wrong about this one.

KT knows that I like him (I think) and we can have discussions about these things and it doesn't bother me and it shouldn't bother some of you guys as much as it does.

Oh, I know about Nate's ties, big fan from his NC State days and I would love him in Charlotte. I just think he has better options than Bobcats.

It doesn't matter teeray... He and I had agreed on so much over the years, especially race related... But, once you get on the otherside of his argument, you are now a racist. There's no turning back. There's no loyalty on the internet.

If only he knew how dumb this whole "racists want Hornets" thing was... He has no idea about any of us or the lives we lead. If he did, he would think twice about such stupid statements.

I don't use the huddle boards very often so i haven't had many run ins with King T.

In fact the only 2 threads I remember him from are based on the stupidity of the comments that were made in those 2 threads.

1. Jerry Richardson would never draft Cam because he was a racist and didn't want a black QB being the face of his franchise.
2. The rebrand thread, where if u support a name change, it's because your a racist.

Just my .02 - The fact that somebody with that kind of posting history, can be a moderator is mind boggling and quite frankly lowers the credibility of the site.

Now onto the coaching situation.

I really like Paul Silas, he's personable and I think he did a great job of trying to hold players accountable for their performance. With that said, I'm ready for a change, I didn't like the offensive sets that we ran at all. The ball rarely moved from side to side and and outside of the down screen where Hendo would curl around for the elbow jumpe, I don't really remember very many plays that we ran throughout the game.

I would love for MJ to somehow convince Phil Jackson to come in and run this team but, that has almost zero chance of happening.

My coaching wish list is as follows:
1. Phil Jackson
2. Brian Shaw
3. Nate McMillan
4. Mike Malone
5. Mike Budenholzer

If we got Phil Jackson, the Hornets name back, and that guy from Kentucky in the draft I'd jizz myself.


Unfortunately I think only 1 of those 3 are likely to happen.
