What pisses me off? Phil wasn't really passed on for basketball reasons. That's BS.
If personal feelings influence your decision making to the point where it hurts your franchise, then maybe you shouldn't be in charge and that's to Jim, Jerry, whoever. It doesn't matter. Grow the eff up.
YOU DON'T PASS ON A MAN WITH ELEVEN RINGS FOR A PROVEN FAILURE OF A COACH.

I think many of us had a gut feeling this was the case, because at least Mitch isn't that dumb to hire D'antoni and Jim wants to win at all cost under his operations control. I also think that some of us believed that Jim swayed Jerry into choosing D'antoni. Plenty of theories, but all moot.
I guess the random midnight call to Phil explains it.
I still blame Jim for this crap of a coaching staff, which includes the assistants. Should have brought back Brian Shaw and Clark Kent.

whens the last time you guys heard Jerry speak? I recall a yr after they won the Finals last & he could barely speak. I thought he was supposed to be very ill. Why would he be making decisions if lil buss is in charge? You can believe the bullsheet I dont.
Jerry is dying, he's very ill..

A possible explanation. There's also the rumors about Jim and Phil's supposed bad relationship. Just saying, but the hiring of Brown and MDA seems more like Jim's work rather than Jerry's, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.
Maybe he just wants to take one for his son. Typical Father protecting Son treatment.
You could argue Jerry wanted showtime back though, and the reunion of Nash with MDA would bring that back to LA.
All we know for certain is that our FO [expletive]ed up.

There is no such thing as a plea of innocence in my court. A plea of innocence is guilty of wasting my time. Guilty. Inquisitor Lord Fyodor Karamazov.
