Remind yourself who are the head coaches of those two teams.
If LA would simply hire a coach then this team can move forward in a positive direction. You cannot undersell the value of a competent head coach in professional sports.
And what was OKC...before they were OKC? And what exactly are they now? They're fighting for the championship just like the other 29 teams in this league.
I'll tell you what we're doing: We're hiring [expletive]ty coaches and retaining [expletive]ty players. We failed in PJ's last season here but we won FIVE CHAMPIONSHIPS with this man, we got our revenge on Boston, and people actually believed we had a shot with PJ at the helm. There's no chance in hell with Mike D'Antoni...I don't care if we tank every year, we'd still lose because there is no one to lead these men.
We did change strategy. We tried Mike Brown's micromanage way and it failed; we tried Mike D'Antoni's score score score way and it predictably failed. One strategy that needs to be resurrected among this franchise is making sound decisions and we have not seen that these last few years. So, there's no need to resort to this loser mentality about tanking when we put ourselves in this position with our own stupid decisions. The only thing that we need to be focused on now is how to win...LEGITIMATELY.
if its so simple how come nobody is running to the Mavericks?
They have a great owner who loves winning
They have a champoinship coach in Rick Carlisle
They have an All star there...Dirk
They have the $ to offer max contracts
No State taxes in Texas!!!
And yet Deron Williams, CP3 and Howard this summer didnt go there. Why? Because the rest of the roster sucks.
If you give a superstar a roster to be excited about they'll come...regardless of who the coach is. Erik freakin Spolestra aint that good and Lebron went there because Wade and Bosh are in Miami
