    As the defense coach Carlesimo is a significant upgrade to Iavaroni

    I wonder if there was any interest in Lawrence Frank (who just joined the Celtics)?

    As a man of Italian heritage, I have tried for decades to calculate the maximum amount of Italians a situation can bear before it completely collapses in on itself.

    The answer is 5. Any situation with 5 or more Italians goes to shit.

    Iavaroni, what can I say? We had one of the worst defensive systems in the history of the NBA under his tutelage/supervising... thanks? I can't exactly say I'm happy for the guy for finding a new gig, more so shocked that there was an active recruitment process that landed him. Best of luck???

    Dear Mr. Iavaroni,

    Don't let the door hit your @$$ on the way out.

    Never understood why they hired this guy in the 1st place. You bring in a coach from the Memphis Grizzlies to look after your defense? Not the smartest move. Hopefully PJ does a lot better.
