    Yeah, you guys might be right. I just want to see a coach with lots of ability who can get results. Larry Brown would be a lot better than JT, this I know.
    JT's time is up. He'll be around for the rest of the season as changing right now would hardly help in the big picture. Hopefully the team doesn't hang it up and uses the last 23 games for the experience most of the players desperately need. For the team to go from a level of play in CHarlotte to Chicago and back to sh!t level versus Suns is ridiculous and extremely frustrating for this fan. I get it they just aren't that good right now but the effort level is inexcusable.

    That's obvious. But I doubt players like Calderon, Bargnani, Weems and DeRozan will suit his style of play.

    You must be thinking about his time with the Pistons. The guy had a championship caliber team there. Then was not the time to focus on the kids, it was the time to focus on getting the most out of what they had to win championships right then and there.
    I agree with most of your assessments except for your suggestion in Larry Brown. He has no patience for young players and he will stick Bargs at the end of the bench so deep he'll be doing nothing but eat bananas all game long (which is a good thing IMO). I'm thinking more along the lines of a Mike Brown. He has been brought under the tutelage of Popovich and has led the Cavs in Opp FG% and a handful of other defensive categories. Mind you, he had LBJ but it's the defensive mindset that impressed me. To this day, I cannot figure out why he was let go (which forced Ferry's hand to step down as well).

    I think Larry Brown would be a good short term option to get them to the next stage of development.
    In my opinion, Larry Brown does nothing for young players. Look at the development of Henderson, Augustine since he left. Look at Felton before and after Brown.

    what about jeff van gundy I like him as a coach
    Would love him. Not sure he'd come out of retirement for this motley-crew though.

    Larry Brown + young talent= no
    I think his problem is more along the lines of when he tells a guy to set screen, he means set a screen which mean he wants to see the defender run into a brick wall creating a open man. I would be frustrated too if at the NBA level I had to teach a guy how to set a screen or a pick correctly. Larry browns offensives are very simple but the screens and picks are so nasty within them.

    Some great trades today. I like how pacers got Mayo, it gives them a solid 4 young guys with ton of " REAL" potentials to build on.

    I also like what Housten did by bringing in a pass first PG and a Young Center.
    I dont think that the pacers got Mayo. Every report I've read is that they failed to get the trade completed on time. The Thabeet acquisition was low risk, high reward one and they got a possible motto pick for their troubles. Smooth move by Morely. Im not sold on the Brooks for Dragic deal though. Brooks was thought of as an untouchable as recent as the beginning of the season. I have a feeling that he'll benefit from change of scenery in Phoenix.

    Ppl gotta be wary though, JT seems to kill young talent.
    Whats happening to Demar right now? Is he dying? Is Ed dying? Is Amir dying? Nope.
    Who are you talking about here?

    Funny how everyone jumps on the James Johnson bandwagon after 1 game eh? I remember reading similar posts about Pops Mensah Bonsu....Jamario Moon.....etc...etc...

    Give JT time, he will suck the life out of Johnson and leave him stone faced on the bench just like Bayless, Ajinca, etc..
    you call it jumping on the bandwagon, i call it cheering on a new p-layer. if he sucks in a year from now then fine lol i dont care . but if he is awsome then im happy i everything worked out.

    I have a feeling BC is letting Triano roll out the year and see who's available in the offseason.
    I think so too. Do you honestly think MLSE is happy about JT swearing in 30% of his postgame interviews on national tv. I wonder if JT wants out so he's doing it on purpose.

    While I may not agree with all that, JT may not be around too much longer. He's been speaking out a lot lately. Taking small cracks at the roster he's been given to work with and as a result indirectly taking shots at Colangelo. Maybe he senses the end is near? I think this club needs a hard nosed coach with some experience to get them into shape. I think Larry Brown would be a good short term option to get them to the next stage of development.
