Absolutely, it was about money. You pay for what you get....
I'd love to see Laimbeer get a chance. I know that he and Dumars haven't really got along but I really think that guy could be a great coach in the NBA. The other guy who really needs a shot at a head coaching job is Patrick Ewing. He always seems to get overlooked when it comes to head coaching jobs. I think having a former NBA big man like Ewing or Laimbeer would really help with the development of some of our young big guys (Monroe, Jerebko, Daye, etc).
