We're tanking. It's all good. But I think we might bring in a more experienced coach when the roster grows kind of like how the Warriors ditched Mark Jackson after player development wasn't as big a concern. 

Coaches need talent. I don't give a crap if its MDA, Rivers, Rudy T, Riley, Brown, Jackson, Pop or Earl Watson. If your teams best players would be bench players on winning teams you're not going to win

Agree with Laker75 & losing Mark Jackson wasn't the smartest move! Luke is doing fine, you wouldn't do better with Pop coaches coach players play give him some players

Popovich would absolutely have done better.
Luke could have too.

So the team would be worst off w/o 17/19's picks, it's not about winning now it's the big picture new ZcBA means less Free Agents leaving all that cash so the draft and trades are what's left. Warriors are still the team to beat and we're not close yet

Thats not entirely true. The player designation is not given to any player, you'd have to meet certain qualifications. Plus, teams might be hesitant to give out such deals.
