McMillan, Gentry, or Sloan would be my top three priorities if I was the Cats.

Out of those candidates I definitely want either Gentry or Sloan. I do not want McMillan at all though, because he's vastly overrated (never had a top 12 defense) and he would be a TERRIBLE fit for our roster.

My preference would be persuading Jerry Sloan to come here, a proven top notch head coach.

 

My second choice would be Nate McMillan, he's got a good record at Seattle and Portland. 

 

And Alvin Gentry would be my third choice, a close third for the record. 

 

Fingers crossed that whoever Jordan and co go for, that they get the right guy that can develop our players in the immediate future, and then in the near future push us on to become a competitive outfit. I'd like to see us get a long term head coach here in Charlotte, we really need one and not another short term guy.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
