The NBA is not the Big East and we weren't looking for an interim/assistant. We needed a HEAD COACH. And if they hadn't had experience as one, they should've at least had a good amount of experience on the pro level. He doesn't.
But, hey... At least MJ gets to save a few more dollars while we continue to suck.
Anyone who thought MJ would actually invest in the brand should take this into consideration as well. Dude is not looking to spend anymore money than he has to.
Look at how he "redesigned" the logo... That's MJ's version of "turning the page." He keeps the same exact logo and just went into photoshop and uses the paint bucket tool and changes the colors. I'll admit, the less orange the better, but still... It's cheap.
I hope many of us are wrong about this hire, but a career college assistant becoming a head coach probably has never happened before, and if it did, I'm willing to bet the results weren't very good.
This could be true. It also could be true that out of everyone they interviewed they believed in his plan for the team the most. If we play at the same speed as Denver did it will be to our eventual benefit with guys like Maggette, Hendo, Walker, Biyombo, and whatever rookie. We already have 4 probable starters that thrive in a more up tempo style. Kemba Walker will be much improved just by revving up the tempo alone.
. Run, run, run. Makes and misses... run!! I hope that is the plan.
