    Another rushed coaching hire...

    This has Michael Curry written all over it. I'm starting to think that Joe will NEVER get a good coach here. Joe's draft picks or his coaching hires? Which is worse?

    Didn't Thibadeau just sign an extension with Boston?

    Agree that Thibideau should have been at the top of the list, but I think Joe panicked trying to live up to todays deadline. Even Curry is probably chuckling at Joe's scrambling around...

    Maybe Kuester has the inside track to Joe stealing Lebron next summer:sssh:

    We are systematically tearing the Cavs apart from the inside out. Phase one has just been completed.

    Soon phase two will begin and McCloed will slowly begin to agree with calls against the Cavs and will inject subtle critisms about LeBron's game.

    Phase three will be when Kuester buys Lebron a Hummer in an attempt to woo him over.

    The coup de grace will be when we agree to rename our arena King James' Palace.

    I know nothing about him but didn' we get some other coach from the Cavaliers in the 80's? Chuckie something...

    Can lightning strike twice? (I mean in a good way (Daly2) not in a bad way (Curry2).

    Does this mean Fred McLeod's contract runs out soon and he returns to the Palace in 2011??:)

    I didn't know he was here for the championship in '04 and he was an assistant under Brown for awhile. That's pretty good credentials.

    Kuester indeed has more experience than Curry. I think Joe D made the right move here.

    Why didn't Cleveland just hire this guy as their coach?

    Is he not good with people?

    An offensive coach? Joe Dumars, you gotta be kidding me. I'm ashamed of you.
