Just giving this a bump. If Spo has only one year to make this team work then there are 4 coaches aside from Pat Riley who could take over next year.
1. Jeff Van Gundy (not coaching)
2. Larry Brown (recently resigned from the Bobcats)
3. Doc Rivers (lats year with the celtics)
4. Phil Jackson
(last year with the Lakers).
Jeff Van Gundy is a Riley Protege and he has experience in the finals. but unlike the other 3, he has no championship. And the way Jackson was picking on Spo earlier, it seems the coach with the most championship and I think the luckiest coach in the NBA maybe interested in another chemistry project next year.
Just a thought, no basis for it tho!
