    Given his defensive expertise he might be the perfect coach for Biyombo.

    Could we be looking at another Tom Thibodeau? I hope so.

    This comment is brilliant but depressing at the same time. Hilarious because it's so true but disappointing how negative the press/fans are towards our coaches and players.

    I'm pumped by this hiring. Will someone FINALLY hold the team accountable for defense!!!

    While I'd like Leonard for our 5th pick, I also wonder what The Raps would do with JJ and LK? Also, is everyone sold that Knight is better than Kemba? I say draft Kemba (who's used to winning and a leader), trade Bayless (sorry, I'm not a fan...) and look to FA for a Center; perhaps Hayword.

    AM I crazy???

    phhttt...that implies that fans will actually wait for results. that seems like a pretty ridiculous request. has firedwanecasey.com been registered yet?

    You might be. Are you talking about Brendan Haywood? He isn't a free agent, but he's really good at playing hard only on contract years.

    Nope.

    Haywood wasn't benched. He was injured.

    You know, it's funny, because over 20 years into the Mavs' franchise their track record was horrendous.



    It all depends on if Colangelo gets him good soldiers.
    http://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/DAL/1987.html
    That Mavs team was excellent, and had players like Sam Perkins, Derek Harper, Rolando Blackman, Declef Scrempth, and Mark Aguirre. If they'd just managed to keep Tarpley's nose clean they might have taken it all. Then they sold the ball club to Ross Perot's runt and it went to the shite-house. Didn't really recover again until Cuban bought the team. So again we see that ownership is the most important thing for any sports franchise.

    "Hayword"? ... Kinda looks like you mean gordon hayward from Utah ... but since you're talking C's, you must mean Haywood - but he's not a FA ... he's under contract in Dallas for years, at a hugely overpriced $9M/yr
    The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.

    It's cited on many prominent basketball writer's Twitter pages. In this day in age how often does ESPN get the scoop on stuff like this? Not often considering most writers aren't active all day every day for these big corporate sites and so they resort to Associated Press articles which are always slow to get things like this out. If it's true I expect a Paul McCartney CD in the mail
