Lots of rumor swirling around that the Cavs are going to canned Byron Scott after the season is over. I know we all want Phil back but the chances of him coming back are slim to none but I'd be ecstatic to have a coach like Byron Scott.

 

MT @PDcavsinsider Asked whether he supports Scott/would be disappointed if he were fired, Irving did not want to address topic at this time

 

MT @PDcavsinsider Irving: "I’m focused on finishing the season with him and that’s all that matters right now."

 

Certainly seems that way. RT @CreepInBushes @AlexKennedyNBA @PDcavsinsider That's what we call the kiss of death. He's gone for sure now.

Assistant? Sure, not head.
 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

For what it's worth, he's got more experience as the lead man than B. Shaw that's for sure.

I'd prefer him to MDA but that's not really saying that much..

No thanks.  He has 1-2 decent seasons, then players stop listening to him.  

 

Get Brian Shaw if its not Phil Jackson.

Is that really the best we can do though? I mean consider we wanna' go with the surest candidates possible for Kobe's extremely short time left. We can't afford to take any more risks whatsoever as we've taken enough already.

I'd rather have him than D'Antoni, but he isn't ideal for sure.

Better than D'Antoni.

 

Brian Shaw first, everyone else second.

That's the problem though. We can't afford to "settle" considering Kobe's time is extremely short. We must not settle and aim for the highest candidates possible. I like B. Shaw, but he can't possibly be the second best option out there other than Phil. I know for a fact Sloan or Adelman, etc would be better.

It's looking like Adelman is going to take a year off, though. Apparently his wife is ill and he considered stepping down this season.

Don't want Scott, players tune him out too easily.

D'Antoni to Adelman?!

 

There is little to no improvement there.

 

MDI, you asked this before and everyone told you already.  He was offered the head coaching job in Charlotte but turned it down because he said he was waiting for another opportunity.  When he turned that downIndiana came calling immediately.

Because Byron actually expects players to put in work like Riley did.  That's who Byron learned from.  And today's players are scared to death of putting in work to win.  They want to make money first so they feel motivated to work and winning takes third place.

 

Gimme guys like Byron who expect hard work 100% of the time for your paycheck over milquetoast / lame duck coaches like 3/4 of NBA coaches.

Guys, how about getting MDA fired first, and then we can talk about some coaching candidates!

If players actually aren't primadonnas and put in work they have unstoppable motors and take their games to the next levels.

That's why I love Kyrie Irving and am a huge fan of. Sessions who embraced it.

Look at the season Verajao was having under him. He teaches effort and if you listen it elevates your game.

Unfortunately the only players on our team that would appreciate that kind of toughness is Kobe, Nash, Blake, Metta and Clark.

And that's not enough, too many primadonna's on this team that wanna get to heaven but aren't willing to go through hell to get there.
 

I've always liked Steve Blake.
