Lost Thought 00: I do not approve of this trend of players retiring and immediately becoming head coaches.
SilentStrider: Which Phil could find in the cushions of his couch.
Palmer Eldritch: Lost Thought 00: I do not approve of this trend of players retiring and immediately becoming head coaches.The Celtics have Brad Stevens locked up for several more years, so I'll all for a bunch of other franchises wasting their money like this. Go wild, guys! Ron Artest is just about done, maybe Indy should use him to replace Vogel. He can mentor Lance.
Fizpez: Ignoring the fact that this was about getting a coach: There are a VERY limited number of elite level players in the NBA, and you basically need at least 2 of them plus some good pieces to have a shot at the championship.At $25k (which I;m sure isnt the maximum but if that's the starting point....) the fine for tampering is a joke. If I was an owner and I thought a little wink and nod here and there would improve my chances of landing one of these guys I would tell my coach and GM to wink and nod to their hearts content - you're talking about trying to lure a guy who is going to be making somewhere between $11,0000,000 and $20,000,000 a year and $25000 is supposed to dissuade you from getting your pitch in early?/unfortunately not a NBA billionaire owner.
