I wonder how he will relate to players, and adjust to a new game with different rules, while also adjusting to a different culture

Might've had a better chance if he had gone to a different environment.

Sarcastic sandwiches for lunch today huh?


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

Not a bad hire at all. I'd call it a move in the right direction for them.

Put this in the "who cares" column for me.


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health (looks pretty good so far), 2. High Draft Pick (Randle...injured game #1.*sigh*) 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of, Davis, nice upside!), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron!...but the jury is out)

this. He's a excellent coach. If Irving does his late to practice giggle Blatt might stab him. He doesn't take shut like that. But his players will respect him. He's gonna be a great coach. I think we missed the boat on this guy. He was suggested by many in the media.

I do love how this is such a respected signing.  Cause if the Lakers hired this guy we'd just get 10 pages of unheralded "who?"
