Shoot, I gues that means Mo would be looking for work right now -- had he taken that job with the Sixers.Originally posted by <b>Hap</b>!
if my math is right, this means that only 1 team has the same coach it had last season, in the eastern conference.
how do you figure? The 76ers haven't fired the guy they hired to replace Larry Brown..who left last season..which was the crux of my post...the coaches from *LAST* season have all been replaced cept for Terry Stotts..Originally posted by <b>ABM</b>!

Scratch Utah off the list, they're 22-22. Us and Atlanta, woo-hoo!just curious--how many sub-.500 teams in the NBA still have the same coach as last year?
off the top of my head I can only think of Atlanta (in limbo with the team for sale), Utah (Sloan should never, ever be fired) and Portland.
They do have Kirilenko. He's a borderline star right now. Harpring is good too before he went down. Arroyo is a young talent at point guard. Raja Bell is playing well this year.Originally posted by <b>theWanker</b>!
I looked it up and you are right, dkap. I just assumed that a team so deprived of any talent at all stood no chance of even sniffing .500.
clearly, Sloan must have very "coachable" players to have out-achieved our team.
No thanks. He would be no savior for sure. What has that guy done in Boston? Not much. The east is weak and he can't do anything over there. I don't see why you praise him so much. I would rather go with Cheeks right now. And Boston is no great defensive team. Portland is not going to look at this guy...get real.Originally posted by <b>Ukrainefan</b>!
I think O Brian is the best of the coaches that have become available this season. Ainge really sabatoged him with his trades. The Celtics really improved after O Brian took over from Pitono. Also he is big on defense, maybe this is a guy the Blazers should be looking at.
I suppose beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. I really dont' think he's done much in Boston myself. I just don't get why Portland would be considering anyone right now...what would be the point? Do you really think Portland will just turn it around with a coach like that? I don't. And the thing about saying get real...well, don't take those things personally. I don't mean to be insulting but you can't have thin skin around here. People have strong opinions about things and comments like that get added at times.Originally posted by <b>Ukrainefan</b>!
Just as a point of fact, O Brian did do very well with this team (beat Indiana in the playoffs last year) and they hold other teams to a .427 shooting percentage. I don't think i praised him that much, i just said he should be considered. Also I thinking telling me to "get real" feels a little insulting and is unnecessary.
