Hey, Chicago.  Don't do this.  You have your cup, but now you have to take Antoine back.

"OK guys.  Here's the plan.  For the first couple of seasons, average a 20-10.  Become an alternate to the all star team.  Then mention to the press that you're all star every chance you get.  Then whine that an all star doesn't have to work hard.  Then heave up 3's.  And when you're asked why you shoot so many 3's, tell them 'Because there are no fours!'"  Then lose all your money gambling with Michael Jordan and getting robbed in Chicago."

I'd rather see them hire Reggie Lewis.

He just needs a job. Courts will probably take 70% of any money he makes anyways.

Oh hell no. His bombs away shooting was so disrupting to the offense it was all him that made the Celtics a mediocre team.

My first thought was "so, he'll mentor Jeff Green to take ill-advised three pointers".
 
2013-06-25 12:31:58 PM
My first thought was;
"So Antoine is going to start chucking up 3's from the bench?"

My second thought was;
"How 'bout no."

A better choice would be Len Bias.

OK, so we have three nominees now for Celtics lottery coach:
M L Carr
Bobby Valentine
Antoine Walker

If that does not sream Head Coach material, I don't know what does.

God no.  Just because Ainge should probably blow up the roster now doesn't mean he has to bring back the crap from the Pitino years.

OtherLittleGuy: Is Bob Cousy still available?



I have someone else, another Celtic legend, in mind.  hint:

throw it DOWWWWWN, Kay Gee!

Rondo, you must attack the rim like a proud Crusader fighting off the Saracen horde!  Rajon, true character, the heart of a warrior is formed in the sacred crucible of orange iron!  You must approach this holy circle with a clean heart, purified by the sweet tones of one John Jerome Garcia, singing sweet songs to rock my soul!

Jared Sullinger, you must play as Coyote, the noble trickster, dashing inside the paint with reckless abandon, with winged feet, a proud Odysseus waging battle on the Trojan plain, for Zeus, he who marshals the lightning, whose shield is thunder and who loves the fighting,  for the purity, the sacred nobility of Helen, whose face it is said launched a thousand ships and speaking of launching thousands,

Paul Pierce, it was none other than the King Ad Rock that said "find the open shot!"  Paul Pierce, find the open shot, big man!  As Bob Dylan once saing, "a hard rain's a-gonna fall" and tonight int he TD Garden, a hard rain of sacred leather, nine inches in diameter, will rain down from behind the stripe, the green bow that separates the true shaman from the noble, proud warriors and the proud warrior from men, and men from boys!  As Jerry Garcia, the bard warrior whose weapon was six strings of silver, gossamer and ephemeral pointillistic beauty, once sang, "don't tell me this town ain't got no heart, you just gotta poke around!"  Tonight, Celtic nation, you will feel this heart beat with abandon!  The fate of Western Civilization lies in the balance!  Fight on, Celtics!

I totally support this idea just for the press conferences alone.  I'd miss him and Dave Pasch together though.  Their Pac-12 broadcasts were the best thing to happen to college basketball in years.

Funny (morbid funny?) thing is that I took Antoine in my death pool this year.  We might have gone a few too many rounds.

You are all missing the obvious hire. Ladies and gentlemen, the new coach of the Boston Celtics...Bill Simmons.

Simmons has been excommunicated from Boston and stripped of his self awarded title of Sports Guy

Bruins win 2011 Stanley Cup?  Basketball column
Patriots in 2011 Superbowl?  Basketball column
Patriots in 2012 AFC Championship?  Basketball column
Red Sox fire Francona?  Basketball column
fried chicken and beer?  Basketball column
Bobby Valentine calamity? Basketball coulumn
John Farrell hired?  Basketball column
Whitey Bulger caught?  Basketball column
Marathon Bombings?  Basketball column
Bruins in Stanley Cup?  Basketball column
Aaron Hernandez involved with murder?  TBD, but we know the answer.  Basketball column.

You'd say since it's all basketball all the time he's still a good candidate.  But no.  He'll be too busy writing a phony trade value column he'd forget to coach his team.  F'ing Dane Cook is a better candidate.  Do you hear me?!!!   DANE...COOK!!!

There were columns about virtually all of these things.

Also, he's a national columnist so we don't really need to hear about every Red Sox hiring/firing.

I wonder if Pat Riley is getting the itch to tell your boy Spoe to slide one chair down. Whether or not Bosh is on roster come September.

I'm sure a 68-year-old with nine championships (1 as player, 1 as asst. coach, 5 as HC, 2 as GM) is really itching to "prove himself" with a team that has just won back-to-back titles, where he can't possibly do better than the guy he hand-picked to succeed him.

Spoelstra is one of the best coaches in the league; don't get all ESPN-ish and try to create stories from thin air.
 
2013-06-25 07:00:27 PM
Spo best coach? Really?

You'd think it have something to do with LBJ and Wade.....but yes without Spo Heat would be making Bobcats look like Harlem Globetrotters.

Wade's beat up and older.  The team around Lebron isn't really that great.  Spoelstra's a very, very good coach.  The Heat always look weakest at the start of a series and get better as the series goes on.  That's coaching.

This is a great point.  As the the point about out-coaching Pop.  And they are also beating really good teams in the Finals.

Also, who knew an Antoine Walker thread could be so entertaining?

THIS

I agree he goes overboard with the bball columns but seriously there would be worse coaches that they could take. A lot worse.

/Simmons wouldnt be my 10th choice though

In addition, there was a good chance of failure with this team. On a traditional NBA team, Bosh, Wade & LBJ wouldn't mesh together, Wade and LBJ both "need the ball," Bosh is an offensive center*.  And Wade's antics in this year's playoffs have caused civil wars on Teams.

*Boston's Big Three made a lot more sense - Allen for long range, KG for mid range and PP for everything else, the risk for them was their health.
