    It's really funny to read people on that site who are concerned about George Karl as a coach of this team because he might not be able to get us past the hump of consistent playoff performance to winning a championship.

    I'd be interested in Karl, though his style predominantly focuses on 3's and drives to the basket - no jump shots. Obviously neither are strengths of ours. We'd need to pick up some 3 point shooters - and hopefully he would give Gigi a shot. If he can get Smith to buy in it would be fantastic as it would facilitate his strengths of getting to the basket and moving him away from the perimeter. But many coaches have tried and failed with Smith so what would make things different with Karl? Would simply have to hope he is the one who can get through to him.

    His style could also elevate Stuckey's game as he is the only real slasher we have. Perhaps it would be good for KCP's game too and is something he can develop.

    Might be nice if we can get hold of some of Karl's old pupils - perhaps a S'n'T of Moose for Wilson Chandler and Fournier/Foye.

    I hope Stuckey and CV have already cleared out their lockers.

    No wonder Gilbert wants to hire Joe.

    has Kerr ever coached? Why is he considered a great coach? What does he have over Jason Kidd?

    Guys that give NBA color analyses on ABC/ESPN and TNT can always be considered as coaches based on what they say and how intelligent it sounds. Pat Riley was able to make the jump all the way to multiple championships with 2 teams. Hubie went back and forth from the booth to the sideline, as did Fratello. Mark Jackson was able to jump to the coaching ranks just by making comments like "momma there go that man again"

    I am not certain if we will see Reggie, Cwebb or Greg Anthony coaching. But for the Warriors to pay Kerr double what they paid Jackson and all he has done is do a so-so job at GM'ing is kind of foolish. Am I one of the people who hopes he fails? I kinda hate his commentary, so at least I won't have to hear it for awhile....until he gets canned.

    Add Doug Collins to that mix.

    I think CWebb is easily the worst commentator out there. He adds nothing and fumbles his words trying to sound excited. Kerr isn't great either but Marv Albert helps carry him. If Jackson ends up back in the booth its probably an upgrade over Kerr.

    I enjoyed listening to CWebb doing the Wiz's playoff run. Think he's refreshing. He also made a very good Sheed comment one night, hope you caught it....

    SVG should make it work.
    Gores needs to step away and never be seen. Still clueless and his functionaries are worthless, but a good stroke of luck is that they can't screw-up the eighth pick. Giving the first option (as coach and team president) to Izzo should give everyone the insight how untalented this owner is.

    From Langlois, speaking of Stuckey :
    Sounds logical, running and gunning suits to him more .

    Considering where he grew up, I'd like to see him sign with the Sonics.
