Pacers part ways with Vogel.

Rockets interviewed D'Antoni. I really want to see that train wreck in action.

Antoni and Haren were meant for each other

I guess that's one sure way to make sure Dwight doesn't opt back in with them...

Re: 2016 NBA Off Season Thread

Quite a roster of names, Bird has on his wish list for Pacers head coach. From Candace Buckner:

VERY early but here's a surprising list of names I'm hearing of possible #Pacers candidates: D'Antoni, Jackson, Shaw, Wittman, Woodson
Nothing that inspires a fan base like retreads. Please hire Jackson so I don't have to listen to him on ABC/ESPN broadcasts anymore.

Fires Voegel for that list of guys? I guess Larry has been spending too much time with Dumars and MJ.

Well Bird has said the players tune out coaches after a few years, so it makes sense to recycle guys if they're going to be replaced that quickly anyway.

that is fast. But apparently he got fired because he sought permission to pursue the Kings job, and Memphis said (rightfully so IMO) take a hike.

This is a good hire, considering all the other names that have been connected to that job.

Curry looks like he'll be MVP, to no real surprise.

To be fair they traded a bunch of players at the deadline for future draft picks and he only had 1 year left on his contract. Seems to be a situation Grizzlies Management were in rebuild mode without giving him any indication they saw him as a guy they want for the future even if they did see him as that. He took a calculated risk to look for work elsewhere cause of it.

Poorly handled situation on their part because he is basically as good a defensive Coach as Thibodeau-Mark Jackson but not a total a**hole who players hate like Thibs or ineffectual at offense like Jackson. Considering they are in Memphis getting a Good Coach let alone one as young as Joerger is no gurantee.

That's why he stepped down as coach, because it's what the Celtics did in the '80s.

Wow. I would have thought at least a few homer voters would have went for their guy. Almost always happens which is why unanimous is so rare.

Re: 2016 NBA Off Season Thread

I guess the fact that the guy had way better stats on a team with a way better record than when he won it last year was a factor?

Very nice. Of course anything is better than the mountain range uniforms Malone and Stockton had to endure for so long.
