but I completely agree. The names I've heard through rumors do not interest me at all. Kerr could maybe come in and establish something, but I'm not that confident in him right now.

it was a tough year for us injury-wise. I think Iggy's hamstring was hampering him more than we had thought. And re: turnovers, that was a result of two things imo. 1.) not having a true Point guard coming off the bench. 2.) play calling. The first reason was a personnel issue, the second is on the coaching.

Damnit if only we still had Malone as the genius behind the scenes we wouldn't be in this mess.
