Is that close to HJI?
LOL, they're the sister islands. Heading there today.
Looks like Brian Hill is the final assistant to LF. Source: Pistons complete staff with Brian Hill - NBA - Yahoo! Sports
I think Sullivan was mostly hired to babysit Sheed. And that worked out so well.
Not sure if this was mentioned anywhere. Dee Brown will be an assistant coach some day with the Pistons. He should help out with some of the young guards. http://www.freep.com/article/201111...ul-Pistons?odyssey=mod|newswell|text|Sports|s
We get a statboy. http://www.detroitbadboys.com/2011/...atanella-as-director-of-basketball-operations
Nice read: http://www.nba.com/pistons/features/truebluepistons_111208.html At least he can identify problems.
I like the approach of this guy. He's gonna have a tough time to sort this mess out but I think he's the man to get this train back on track. It might take some time though.
I'm not really sold on your choice of Frank. I know that he is outside of the Dumards Circle Of Trust, but I'm not sure he is the guy to really get the best out of the current team.
Knew there would be a thread for this. So, who do we go with? Personally, I think we need a straight talking coach that will instill some work ethic in these guys. Someone to tell Smith to cut out the bad shots and tell him that he is not a "good shooter" as he said he was and tell Jennings to develop a right hand and work on his jumper.
Indeed, but who is the one for that? Who has the strong character to impose himself like that?
I think we need to lay to rest the notion that there is some hard line coach out there who can fit all Joe's square pegs into the round holes. It's not going to happen. The Pistons need to address their roster so it doesn't take a miracle to get their best players on the court together.
Fixed that for you.
What if Phil Jackson is hired as head coach and is given full control on personnel decisions?
That's interesting. It would be nice having the Basketball Ops folks having a vested interest in how the coach does. I like this idea better than hiring the random hard-ass coach X to come in and not play Monroe, Drummond or Smith at the end of games.
He said he doesn't want to be a head coach again. I'm guessing he doesn't want to work that hard again and put his coaching rep at stake with a team that needs development.
I thought he said he didn't want to coach unless he had GM powers, too.
I think Gores is planning on Phil Jackson being coach and GM. Phil will coach for a couple of seasons to get the team on track. I don't know if I like Phil having this much power. He could decide he doesn't like anyone on this roster and trade everyone for role players that fit his offensive system which unfortunately will not work in the East.
Putting all our eggs in one basket. hopefully, he'd bring home the bacon. If not...we're toast. I'm feeling hungry suddenly...........
