    Bot now he's rumored to be the hot top candidate to be the Knicks the next coach now that Phil Jackson is on board. Isn't that the same guy who was supposed to be helping the Pistons with their coaching search?

    Yea, I'm not sure why Gores would have trusted Phil for advice. That one perplexed me at the time.

    Maybe Kerr wasn't in the mix a year ago. I find it hard to believe that Phil Jackson is responsible for anything that happened or did not happen with the Pistons this season.

    If Phil Jackson doesn't hire Brian Shaw as his coach then he's just a liar!

    Try to modify like this : If Phil Jackson doesn't hire Brian Shaw as his coach then he's just a liar one of those strategist who keeps telling people there's no fits all prescription.

    Correct.

    Notice the newer details from Dolan and his surreptitious relationship in using Jackson as Mr. Consultant.

    Meanwhile Ms Buss is heard whistling-in-the-dark on how I am boss man and tool-maker. Phil had no place in my bed organization. I welcome new sheets giving me a moral undertow within those starched league perimeters.

    Gores might say: I had no idea about any of these Madmen ways. After all, I am part of Beverly Hills with all those rightful clubs and associations. There are no tombstones in my eyes. After all, I can hire any type of talent that my body could kill. I do worry about my persona presentation and no one says that I may look vapid at times...still... Joe has my back.

    Silver: Don't worry all. The brilliant market rules all. There are times when I will need to put-my-foot-down. As you all know, jerseys will soon have sponsor logos. But first, you must understand, that glow green and hot pinks in any combination of these fabric colors, is a no-no. My wife hates me in these colors. Also, and I am somewhat embarrassed to admit this; but, certain exaggerated exhibitions of logo projections, will have no association with the protrusions of tongues. Even though a lot of owners might be into this sort of thing; others (especially my wife) think that certain depraved tongue exhibitions (i.e., Rolling Stones) reminds her of that disgusting Milly showcase. I personally don't think this is a problem at all, and I am led to believe that the majority of owners think like-wise. Still, we are talking morality here. When talking to David about this, he just laughs. He told me that control is a matter of perception. He said that I should just start out by fining every owner infraction a minimum penalty of $250,000. He said they would be grateful to me in upholding the legitimacy of the system. My wife said that this was a lot of money just for a luncheon date. I keep telling her that it is not my fault; but the coffee is free, and the napkins are an unstained iridescence white.

    There are three kinds of people. People who understand Pass and people who do not.

    My take on this - Gores was heard whitling I am the boss man within the starch white sheets placed on the league parameters. But the napkins are cloth white and the coffee is free.

    I really do enjoy Pass99's posts. Reminds me that I need to start reading more - like the classic stuff.

    You'd make a fine coach for the Pistons or any of the NBA teams who have ex-Pistons on their rosters.
