that, not in spite of it.
Well... for those who wanted Thibs sent packing, you can't cry anymore. The dude wasn't perfect; his stubbornness will likely go down as legendary in sports cliche chit chat. No one that ****!ng brilliant on the defensive side could be equal on the offensive side. That is like expecting Einstein to write like Shakespeare.
Anyway...I refuse to believe that some new pu$$y coach is going to come in with this "make Basketball fun again" approach and win big with this same roster. A new coach might prove to be the right decision, but this roster can't remain stagnant.
We each have our favorites and our least favorite players on this team. Some of us fans need to have a sad summer and see a few of our favorites move on. We need a couple of departures, and couple of new faces for next season if this team is going to get into the finals.
Just bec not a few like me, are ok parting with Thibs, doesn't mean that we didn't appreciate how good the guy is. I for one, would always be grateful on how he managed to lead this team to the playoffs, in spite of major injuries etc. Having said that, he made decisions that were pretty hard for me to understand. Over playing his main guys even when the outcome was settled, a concept that great coaches like Pops wouldn't adapt. Benching players who can really help esp in offense when the team was really struggling in that aspect (i.e. Dunleavy vs the Wizards last years playoffs) etc.
Anyway, I'm concerned about the rumor that MGT has decided to hire an inexperienced coach in Hoiberg. There is a long list of great college coaches who failed in the pros.
Leonard Hamilton, Tarkanian, Montgomery, Floyd, Lon Kruger, heck even Calipari all failed and Im pretty sure that there are more...
I was hoping they can focus on proven ones like Doug Collins, I love JVG but I know he hates the Bulls MGT bec of his affiliation with Thibs.
If they indeed hire Hoiberg, I think it will be stupid not to provide him with veteran and proven assistants.
