Tanking does not work

You are parsing words now.  You know as well as I do that Larry Brown and Paul Silas were not brought in with the hope that they would stay here and coach for five or ten years.  Both of them stayed about as long as could be expected. 

Ciff was here long enough to get a fair shake.  I expect JB will get the same chance.  If a coaches shows he is in over his head, like some of the guys on your list, it is a good thing to let them go after one season. 

Total #FakeNews.

It's not my "list" pal, what it is, is the list of coaches Michael Jordan has hired (and fired) during his turn at the wheel of this train wreck.

The Hornets are setting themselves up nicely for pick 12-14 right now. Sigh. No hope for the future. There is some young talent but they are benched behind terrible veterans. Kemba should leave this offseason and he just may do that. Even if he stays we are stuck with the same roster, and NO CAP SPACE for a few years. Such a terrible mismanagement. I honestly believe I could have done better, and I believe the average NBA fan could have as well. I hate to rag on this team, but they are a team with no direction. I feel bad for Mitch, but he took the job so it is on him now.

Its your list in that you posted it.  I did not dispute its accuracy.  I just disagree with the meaning you ascribe to it.

It's simply a list, nothing more....no personal opinion expressed.

Michael Jordan has hired and fired the entirety of that list, period.

    • There was no sex trafficking going on...100% fake news. Who are you saying makes these "women think this is the only thing they can do"?  You do realize the place was run by some middle aged women, right? Do you care about "the truth"?  Doesn't appear to be the case... https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/prosecutors-concede-no-human-trafficking-in-kraft-spa-case/  
    • Where to begin.... So I like that we picked up with Jon clearly having killing Dany on his mind from the beginning of the episode until he finally did it. I love that tortured look of knowing what must be done because it is right and utterly refusing to accept it until the moment it is done because of his love for her. Great acting sold all of that well. The first half was super tense because of it. Also the visual of the throne being melted and what that represented for the entirety of the series. Just a great scene. Then we move along to the time jump (which we know is a few weeks thanks to Tyrion's monologue). I liked that whole scene as well...what I DIDN'T like was treating Jon the way they did. The Unsullied basically strong-armed them into exiling the actual hero of Westeros. He legitimately saved almost every major character and/or their people at some point in this show and certainly saved the entirety of the North by killing Dany. And to top that off, he's a better person than pretty much anybody at this point. And for his trouble, he gets exiled. Now, because he is a good man, he is exiled to go be with people who also love and adore and follow him. So while it is BS, at least it's not a true punishment beyond his choice in the matter being taken. I mean, he did CHOOSE to go to The Wall the first time around to prove himself. But dammit, he should be praised the land over for what he did. Everybody would be bending the knee to a genocidal maniac or be slaughtered by a genocidal maniac were it not for him. Everybody's roles in the new Six Kingdoms, sure. It is fitting. Sure, Bran becoming king is a tad unexpected. But the way he acted about Tyrion proposing it ("why do you think I came all this way?"). I mean, WHAT?! At no point did you ever suggest that the throne was your endgame but suddenly, once Jon kills Dany, you're all about being the king? The ending montage was cool. Sansa going from scared little bird to the Queen in the North is awesome. Arya doing her own thing under the Stark banner is cool (goes from feeling like she'll never fit into her family because she didn't want to be a lady, to renouncing her name to become a Faceless woMan, to reclaiming her name and finding her place within the family, just a great character arc). Jon being treated as basically the king of the Wildlings is awesome. Do wish we knew how much time had passed that they could rebuild the castle in King's Landing so quickly. Or repair Winterfell such that the great hall was so pristine. Or know if they fixed the gap in the Wall that the Night King came through or if they leave it as there are no longer any White Walkers and no threat North of the wall that we know of. I guess I am satisfied in the ending....but it left a bad taste in my mouth about Jon. I felt for him because it's almost a cautionary tale of what happens to good men who remain good. They end up eventually punished for doing the right thing.
