"...I'll be out of work for 5 minutes (c)Mike Budenholzer"


          

new coach of the Bucks. I was really hoping Becky Hammon might get it.

                     48 wins, and second round...thats what i replied to.
May 17th 2018
19
                          Right, Kidd never had the chance. That is the exact point.
May 17th 2018
22
                               he had 300 games to do something other than tread water
May 17th 2018
25
                                    Right. He developed a top 3 franchise player for the next decade.
May 17th 2018
26
                                         franchise has to win for "franchise player" to mean something
May 17th 2018
29
                                              Right. Sixers got one round further with TWO "Franchise Players."
May 17th 2018
                                                   i do, so....
May 17th 2018
35
                                                   And rumor is Brown is going to get an extension
May 18th 2018
39
      same here, but probably for a different reason
May 17th 2018
5
           What reason other than racist double standards?
May 17th 2018
17
                prolly that he wants someone other than Casey to coach his Pistons...
May 17th 2018
18
                     Why would he "die," though? Just say "I'd prefer Jerry Stackhouse."
May 17th 2018
20
                          because I dont want a coach whose accomplishments are "seeds"
May 17th 2018
24
                               Your team would be honored to be able to get Casey.
May 17th 2018
28
                                    uh not really lol
May 17th 2018

                                    they actually wouldn't be, which is why they're the Pistons

I just want to know what the organizations goals.

May 17th 2018
23
                into what exactly? the leader of the 8 seed? lol
May 17th 2018
27
                     How about a top 3 franchise player for the next decade?
May 17th 2018
30
                          how about he wins something before you let him go bareback on you?
May 17th 2018
32
                               How about you find me 3 better franchise talents for the next decade?
May 18th 2018
40
                                    ahhh, franchise talent. thats different.
May 18th 2018
41
                                         LMAO. Giannis averaged 27-10-5 on 53% shooting @ age 23.
May 18th 2018
44
                                              then winning something shouldn't be any trouble at all for him
May 18th 2018
46
                                                   You do realize age-23 Jordan got swept in the first round, right? LMAO

May 18th 2018
49
                                                                  about what? did he win something in the last 24 hours?
May 18th 2018
50
55 wins and conference finals or they get fried

                                         so do you disagree with my opinion or are you typing just to be typing?

Give these coaches chances to coach talent, and they'll
take them places.

The Bucks job the last two seasons has entirely been
about developing their superstar. That is what great
coaches do. Kidd was doing that.

AND another top 3 pick AND another #1 overall guy.

Nobody questions the Franchise-ness of their guys.

No one should question Giannis.

Casey has done nothing to make anyone in the league
want to "die" because they are coaching their team.

He turned a bunch of bums into an overachieving 1-seed.

Like is the expectation that he gets them a chip in the next 5 years? Or are they just cool with conf finals or second round?

Because lets be real. For all the hype, he hasn't really proven that he can do that consistently.

In response to Reply # 8


  

          

one would expect their roster to improve even without making changes

once Bud topped out in Atlanta there was nowhere left for them to go

theoretically if Bud plateaus in a few years, thats gonna be on him, because the talent should be improving the whole way

The team was improving just fine under Jason Kidd.

And Giannis' game took a quantum leap under Kidd.

(But that's all Giannis, right!)

Giannis is one of the great development stories in
league history, actually.

And he was OPENLY pissed that Kidd was fired, has
lauded Kidd transmitting his elite IQ to his game

41. "ahhh, franchise talent. thats different."
In response to Reply # 40


  

          

because franchise talents are potential

franchise players are results

im not gonna argue about his talent, bc its undeniable. But he gotta lead his group to something sooner rather than later.

I predicted in the firing post that Kidd aint gonna be the last body Giannis catches in his career, and i stand by that

so i dont really care what they did

not to mention that Giannis is going into year 6,which was Jordans last year before going 6/6 with Chips in each full season he played

you really trying to make that the bar? winning *this* central division next year is not a monumental task.

In response to Reply # 0


          

50 wins/top 3 or 4 seed, and a playoff loss to any team other than the Celtics or Sixers would be a disappointment. There is no reason for any other team in the East to be better than us next year, even if we still have holes in the roster. THis means it is not ok for the Raptors, Cavs, Pacers, or Wizards to be better than us. No way.

In response to Reply # 43


          

and even if a non-Celtics or Sixers team adds a piece or two, I still expect the Bucks to be better. If somehow Bron stays in Cleveland + rebuilds a superteam, I guess then it'd change a bit. If Bron stays in Cleveland and has the same cast, I expect Bucks to be better and/or beat them in playoffs.

I'm guessing they expected more that the 2nd round with the money and draft picks they've spent to assemble this team. Maybe they pin it on the GM but somebody gotta go.

In response to Reply # 55


  

          

even now this is a level beyond anything Kidd ever did

plus im not sure that losing to these Nets should cost anyone their job

but its a regression in light of their own history, and a downward trend is a downward trend.

if they lose this series and he gets fired no one will bat an eyelash, but that wont change that moving to Bud from Kidd was the right call at the time.

Wed Jun-09-21 11:53 AM by Frank Longo

  

          

Took Atlanta to the ECF in two years, and he's been the best regular season coach in the NBA for his tenure at the Bucks. Most of those Buck losses to Toronto in the ECF Year 1 came down to the wire too.

There's also sample size like a motherfucker going on for anyone tossing him under the bus for this series already, lol. Milwaukee was a Top 5 3 point shooting team this season-- they genuinely worked on their bad shooting last year (18th in the NBA) and fixed it this year, shooting 39% as a team on a high volume. So far this series, they're shooting under 25% from 3.

So, like, yeah, if they continue to shoot 14% below their usual team 3-point percentage, they're going to get swept. But firing Bud over that would be dumb imo. It's the same people who said "Tony Bennett will never win in the NCAA Tournament!" because he was a brilliant regular season coach but had bad fortune in the dance. Like, if you're a brilliant regular season coach, and you get enough swings at the bat... you *will* more likely than not break through.

There's no arguing against the "but he hasn't done it yet!" set, because context doesn't really matter to them. But teams that fire an elite regular season coach to chase the title dragon with a new coach? That... doesn't work out the majority of the time.

And every NBA franchise that doesn't love their coach is *salivating* at the thought that Milwaukee could potentially fire Bud.
