Alvin Gentry A Possible Candidate?

Would be a solid hire.

He definetely has the pedigree

Would be a fan, those Phoenix Sun teams he coached were fun to watch. Would be interesting to see if Kemba could fill a Nash-eque role. But need to draft another effective playmaking big man.

Nash and Amare = Kemba and Noel.

Obviously, Kemba and Noel would not be as good as them, but maybe they could be the lite version.

I'd be down with that.

I could live with him as coach. If they hire him I hope they give him more than one year.....

I'd rather have Gentry than McMillan, but I still wouldn't be a fan of the hiring.

He's had one good season and it was the 2009-2010 season in which he had Nash and Amare. Granted, he hasn't had the opportunity to coach good teams really, but I'm just not a fan. He would definitely be on my top 10 list, maybe even right outside the top 5, but I'd like to get either a more proven coach or a young up and coming NBA assistant like a Brian Shaw (even though I still find his comments to be pretty rude).

Mike Dantoni was really the coach when Amare and Nash were good- Gentry was there when Shaq was there = bleh

Yeah Brian Shaw isn't happening, he was a dick through the hiring process and doesn't deserve a head job if he is going to act like that.

Gentry seems like a real possibility to be honest.

Shaw probably won't be asked about the opening at all this time. The way he acted actually might have lost him a HC chance.

    • I'd love it if someone could do a compare & contrast post on Corey Davis, Zay Jones, Ross and maybe one or two of the other top WR prospects, ranking them on Speed Route running / separation Hands (catch percentage) Durability Fit in our offense For me, Ross is off my board (at least in the 1st round) due to his knees / injury risk.  Davis seems promising but it's hard for me to imagine DG going with him at #8.  Seems like one of other players we are likely to have ranked higher (Thomas, Adams, Fournette, Howard) might be available at #8.  Barnett & Lattimore might be above Davis on our Board and have a pretty high chance of being there at #8... I don't watch much college football at all. (Have enough trouble watching NFL games here in West Africa)  Don't know enough about Zay Jones and any of the other potential round 2 WR prospects....
    • I think Panthers fans would lose their minds if we took Lattimore. But he would be a stud for sure and pairing him with JB24 would be nice.
