    Correct me of I'm wrong, but I thought Kareem was taking over the men's program at UCLA. Did that fall through?

    This. I think we are speculating on the context of "one of the all-time great big men" means but I take it more in the quality of a Kareem then a Zabonis (who not doubt was a great player). When ever they make the announcement we at least can spend some time talking about the pros and cons of that big coach.
    As Planetmars already mentioned, I was referring to Zadrunis, not Sabonis...just to confirm.

    arsenalist and phdsteve had dinner with leiweke last night and he told them. I know you likely think i'm joking, but i kid you not.






    LOL, I'm a big fan of PHDSteve's pod casts, and I would have paid to be a fly on the wall during that dinner.

    I'm sure one of them will post a column on the main page regarding their dinner last night with Leiweke. Or perhaps not depending on how sensitive the the discussion was when it comes to the team in general.

    I'm thinking we sign on Alonzo to do it ... and when he refuses to show up, we give him millions of dollars!

    I'm just hoping that nobody was kicked out of the restaurant for raising their voices and Prakash isn't getting a stern talking to about whom he sets these meetings up with.

    Interesting. My money's on Sabonis, both because of the Lithuanian connection and because there just aren't that many other plausible candidates that aren't already working for another team.

    Ewing - Bobcats
    Hakeem - Rockets
    Shaq - Don't really see him being a good influence
    McHale - Rockets
    Yao - Rockets
    Robinson - Not officially employed, but can't see him with anyone but the Spurs
    Malone - Jazz
    Russell - Maybe a possibility, but he hasn't shown any interest in this kind of job in the past
    Kareem - Again, maybe a possibility, but reports are that he wants a head coaching job. Don't see him working for the Raps as a player development coach.

    Anyone I'm missing?
    Bill Walton?

    I figured Bill Walton is too worn out physically to take on such a job. I mean, would he be able to stand up and drill Jonas for an hour? Can't be coaching entirely from a sitting down position.

    Sikma's got a job in Minny I believe. Though, they could try to pluck him.

    Sabonis is too loyal to leave his job. Especially for the country like Lithuania.

    What about a guy like Kevin Willis, who even has a Raptors connection? I have no idea if he's the least bit interested in coaching and/or if he's already involved with another team, but he was a solid player at both ends of the court in his prime.
