"NBA Head Coach Carousel - 2022"


  

          

Vogel out for Lakers
Kings aren't bringing back Gentry

More lottery team coaches may be getting the ax.
Probably a few play-offs coaches will be gone depending on how things break.

This shit is a dumpster fire
The Lakers are POS for allowing that to leak so early
Woj is a POS for the way he reported that so soon

We all knew what was what, but still

This whole team needs an overhaul, from Jeanie’s inner circle in down

It’s still The Lakers though, and Lebron is not likely to go anywhere this offseason. So there’s that. But who is available, worthy of that position, who would even want this damn smoldering mess?

its comical how many people want to dismiss the Lakers 2020 championship in the bubble yet at the same time time want to hype Eric Spoelstra and the Miami Heat for their greatness and "culture" primarily for their success in that same bubble lol

Goes without saying that anyone who tries to dismiss any ring for any reason anywhere is insane, lol. Rings are insanely fucking hard to win. Even if you think the bubble was the exception for the Lakers with Bron, they still had to, y'know, go win it, lmao. Shit wasn't handed to them.

But it's also pretty clear that the bubble *is* an anomaly for the Lakers in the Bron era. They've finished 10th, 1st, 7th, 11th in these four years. That's a big spike.

Whereas the Heat were young in the bubble, and while they performed above how folks expected, I think it was and is reasonable to assume that it was a sign of good things to come for Miami. And here we are two years later, and the Heat have earned a 1 seed-- in a year where they dealt with some noteworthy injury absences to boot.

So I don't think the praise for Spo and the Heat comes primarily from their bubble success. I mean, the Lakers are 65-79 since the bubble, the Heat are 93-61. I think it's easy to see why people think the Heat making a deep run in the bubble felt like it was a predecessor of things to come whereas the Lakers' deep run and win within the bubble feels more anomalous. It's shaken out that way over a pretty large sample.

The Heat very clearly has a culture right now, and the Lakers very clearly don't in the Bron era. We know what to expect of the Heat next season, and I've no clue what the Lakers will be or look like.

(But again, anyone trying to dismiss any ring ever is an obvious hater, lol.)

Anthony Davis Damian Lillard Jamal Murray etc

Lol half of the players didn’t even want to be there

And the ones that did didn’t have to travel and deal with the rigamarole of the playoff grind , no fans etc

Congrats to the lakers but that has a huuuge asterisk next to it , even more than 99’ and the short season

And it would be the same if the Heat had won that year too

If it was so easy, it cuts far worse on the other end of that blade.

Because it means that those other players and their teams couldn't even win an easy chip.

Don't get me wrong, the bulk of this Lakers "run" has been trash.

But to put an asterisk on this chip, is to also take a Jumbo Jack In The Box Taco flavored shit on every other contender in the league for that year.

And it's absolutely better to win an "easy" chip than it is to NOT win the easy chip- because it if it was so easy, yet every other team failed to do it, then it's an indictment on how bad they all were that they couldn't win the easy one.

This is inescapable. You can't take the asterisk without taking a buttery, bacon bowel bomb on the rest of the league.

pretty sure players and humanity, in general, had something else on their mind in 2020 that might have been a distraction from basketball

you had players OPENLY describing that they felt like they were going in to do a bid and they weren't even in it fully. A few of them straight up refused to go (Paul George being the most glaring example of not being all in)

kyrie was actively trying to get the players union to not go, or boycott it.

playing in that environment in orlando came with its own set of unique difficulties but it wasn't the same NBA playoffs that we all love

That is to say, stronger than the asterisk crowd seems to think it is.

>pretty sure players and humanity, in general, had something
>else on their mind in 2020 that might have been a distraction

So the Lakers were able to deal with ALL THAT, and come together in oursuit of rhe ultimate goal of their profession?

Keep in mind, Kobe died that year.

>you had players OPENLY describing that they felt like they
>were going in to do a bid and they weren't even in it fully. A
>few of them straight up refused to go (Paul George being the

So the Lakers had the discipline to NOT do that shit?
They had the focus and intensity to hone in on their goal?

>kyrie was actively trying to get the players union to not go,
>or boycott it.

Cool. So the Lakers played through that adversity, correct?

>playing in that environment in orlando came with its own set
>of unique difficulties but it wasn't the same NBA playoffs
>that we all love
I
...So the Lakers played through those extra difficulties- while having the same general set of beneficial circumstances that everyone else had, and won, correct?

Everything you just said casts the Lakers- and this chip- in a more positive light- while simultaneously shitting on those other players and teams.

Objectively, each of those comments is a point for the Lakers, and takes one away from the rest of the league.

And they don’t exactly make the Lakers chip look any weaker than a “normal” chip.

In the grand scheme of the give and take of this, and with everyone being more or less on an even playing field, apart from things that would generally plague any given team in any given playoffs, such as injuries.... it’s really not that much different than any other chip.

Oh, players shot better? Cool.
Nobody shot well enough to beat the Lakers

I completely forgot about Kobe passing away btw touche

by March that was old news. We had actual real-life problems to deal with.

But I think if polled, most NBA fans wouldnt see that chip in the same light, hell I know a few Lakers fans that feel the same way..that you guys mortgaged it all for something that isnt quite the same

What?

Cool story. There’s a reason you ran with a blanket argument from popularity. The fact is, that asterisk makes a bigger statement about the rest of the league than it does about the Lakers. You can’t have it solely as a negative stripe against the Lakers without it staining everyone else with the “couldn’t win an easy one” stigma as well. You want the asterisk, you take that shit too.

Of course, you do; you already admitted as much, until it came time to acknowledge the way all those pieces ho hand in hand.

I agree on what your hypothetical poll would say.

Problem is, the actual arguments behind that sentiment are more or less the same as yours- and, like you, those people *completely* ignore the way the downside of those arguments objectively make the rest of the league look bad by comparison.

hell I know a few Lakers fans that feel the
>same way..that you guys mortgaged it all for something that
>isnt quite the same

Note how you had all these specific arguments- but do not have specific responses to reasonable, logical rebuttals, instead going to “well other people think this too”.

That’s an objectively terrible take on ANY subject, specific contextual situations aside. It’s generic and piss poor reasoning, all by itself.

Every single argument you’ve made so far would be just as terrible, were they made about the Kings or Hornets or what have you. My fandom of the team does not in any wag impact the poor quality of your arguments.

So, do you have an actual, substantive rebuttal to any of this?

Or is this a situation where you’re game until it gets dicey for your position, and it's suddenly not that serious, bro, or some other stock cop out? You already used “a Lakers fan WOULD say that”, and “a lot of people agree”.

Do you have anything that isn’t an objectively bad argument under nearly any circumstance, in any discussion, on any subject?

Please, show me where I said that.
I’ll even make it easy and give you a low bar to clear- preponderance of evidence.

God, do you suck at this. It’s not even sporting. You’re that arrogant dude on the court that talks a gang of shit and “pulls a muscle” the second someone swats his shit into the sandbox.

>Cool. Congrats.

Congrats on yet another inept, brain dead, low common denominator, dog shit argument that doesn’t hold up to even minor scrutiny.

I'm gonna assume the name-calling and nasty attitude is a medical issue. If you need help getting meds, I work in big Pharma. I'm always glad to help out a fellow OKP.

>I'm gonna assume the name-calling

....except. i didn’t call you a single name.

Once again, you get it objectively, unarguably backward.
I absolutely attacked your garbage arguments.

But I didn’t attack you. Of course- you attacked my person, while pretending it was the other way around, the written record clearly disagrees with you.

>and nasty attitude is a
>medical issue. If you need help getting meds, I work in big
>Pharma. I'm always glad

You’ve really covered the bases here.

You went from really bad, inept, arguments, to the “not gonna waste my time” schtick- as I predicted- to this repugnant bullshit.

That you have so many, and so consistently terrible arguments has absolutely nothing to do with me. Were I never born, your arguments would still be laughably bad.

That you so quickly and clearly switch to bad faith arguments the second you’re pressed with reasonable conjecture, also has nothing to do with me.

Likewise, that you're the sort of scumbag who runs to gross takes like that when your shitposting gets rightly called for what it is, has nothing whatsoever to do with me.

I just happened to be the one to see it, recognize it, and call you on it.

Good news is, you’re not alone. Disingenuous people like you are a dime a dozen.

In response to Reply # 20


  

          

I *added* a couple lines. But I redacted nothing.

Unhinged is you being so comfortable just making shit up even when the written record says otherwise.

That’s a good indication of what kind of shit you’ll invent when there’s no documentation to reference.

In response to Reply # 6


  

          

Like, the playing field is still even, y’know?

No doubt it’s a different dynamic, but it’s not like the Lakers played with a different rim or ball or whatever, lol. Everyone had the same circumstance in this easy shooting environment. The Lakers turned it into a title where the others couldn’t.

In response to Reply # 14


  

          

but it was not a real NBA playoffs. There was a 4 month layoff (it was a benefit for guys who train hard in the "offseason" and a curse for dudes with bad discipline)

there's a reason the analytics jumped off the pages during that stretch.

I'm sorry, you cant eliminate fans, travel, and the rigorous playoff schedule and convince me it's fucking HARDER than what Giannis did, or Kawhii the previous year.

that is just sheer stupidity/delusion on a GOP/QANON level

Spoiler: not win a title.

Edit, with a footnote so you can’t just make shit up:

Not win a super duper easy cakewalk title.

Edit two. Footnote so you can’t just make shit up:

“Super super” was a typo, corrected to “super duper”.

Right, playing without fans, travel, or the rigorous playoff schedule isn't harder than playing in a normal playoff setting. Everyone agrees on that, for the most part.

... but it was easier for *everyone,* not just the Lakers. Just like every single NBA team in a normal playoffs has to contend with fans, travel, and the rigorous playoff schedule... in the bubble, every single NBA team played without fans, travel, and the rigorous playoff schedule.

If all the teams have the same advantages/disadvantages, then how is it easier to *win* in one than the other? Easier to *play* in, yes-- but it's also easier for your opponent in the exact same way, so the difficulty of winning doesn't change.

I’d expect the best franchise in the sport to construct a roster that doesn’t require full health from *both* a 35+ YO and one of the more frequently hurt stars in the game to remain a top 6 team in the west, but maybe I’m the crazy one.

we know it’s a championship that was won within a 2 month timespan,
and the games were played on a neutral site. There were no fans in the building,
and many teams were affected by Covid.

So there is a huge asterisk that comes with that, and it doesn’t carry the same significance as a championship that is won in a normal postseason.

In response to Reply # 32


  

          

Is it true that Borrego was difficult to play for?. If so, then his firing makes sense.

I personally don't like it when the coach that gets the team headed in the right direction gets canned right when the time is realizing its potential. But that's what happened here. He was the 'bridge' coach.

I'm interested to see who Charlotte hires. I'd like to see Fiz get a shot. Or Mike Brown. Or Kenny Atkinson.

Since both Atkinson and Brown have experience in GS, maybe they'd bring some form of Kerr's offense to CHA. Lamelo works great on-ball, of course. But running something that encourages passing for the entire team and allows LaMelo to become some Dray/Steph hybrid would be worth watching.

51. "It's been a weird season"
In response to Reply # 36


  

          

The trades were exciting but confusing. At the time I figured they were getting to the playoffs but I didn't know what a realistic ceiling was. It seemed like a first round exit would not be enough but it was hard to expect more than that.

The preseason and start of the season really surprised. I kept waiting for them to come down but they kept winning. So much so that I figured it would translate against the best teams but nah. Injuries came, they could never win against the best teams. Seemed like a repeat of last year. Right when it was time to make a push for the playoffs they fell apart.

That worries me. Maybe it's just a coincidence and this year's collapse was really about injuries. I feel like Billy needs to go but I understand giving him one more year.

Coming into the season it seemed like it was going to be a transition year, they picked up some pieces that would hopefully be worth building around. They had to work with the rest until they could make more moves. I don't know how much they can do this offseason but they definitely need to round out the team better. As great as Zach and DeMar have been I don't think the Bulls have that top player and they are not deep enough to make up for it.

Pat's lack of development is frustrating, he did miss most of his second season but he has to find a way to make up for it this summer. The Bulls need him to be a good starter and he's still too inconsistent. Ayo is exciting. I got a Coby jersey gifted but dude needs to go lol

Nets
Steve Nash’s job appears safe even with Nets on verge of first round exit: Report

By Christian Arnold

Even as the Brooklyn Nets face the barrel of 0-3 hole heading into Monday’s Game 4 against the Boston Celtics, it appears Steve Nash’s job is safe as the man in charge.

NBA insider Marc Stein reported that Nash was unlikely to face the chopping block if the Nets were swept out of the first round of the NBA Playoffs, despite the massive expectation that was on the team since the start of the year. Nash is in his second season as the Nets’ head coach.

“One source close to the situation told me over the weekend that he thinks Nash is likely to avoid being rendered management’s fall guy for the Nets’ meek playoff showing, noting how much madness (and, frankly, absurdity) that the former Hall of Fame point guard faced during his second season as a head coach,” Stein wrote in his newsletter.

Nash has faced his fair share of criticism in the last week as the Nets have looked unable to adjust to the dominating defense of the Celtics through the first three games of the series. The Brooklyn coach’s rotation decisions have come into question during different points of the season and again during the playoffs as well.

The former eight-time NBA All-Star has had a dysfunctional two seasons at the helm of the Nets, dealing with everything from COVID-19 and injuries to disgruntled stars and blockbuster trades. Nash also had to coach a team without one of its best players, Kyrie Irving, for a third of the year and who then wasn’t fully available until March.

“There is no evidence in circulation — yet — to suggest that Nash is in some sort of jeopardy … as long as he retains the support of (Joe) Tsai and (more importantly) (Kevin) Durant,” Stein added later.

Nash was a surprise choice to get the keys to the kingdom when Brooklyn hired him as its head coach in September 2020. Nash had no coaching experience at the time and was chosen in part because he had the backing of Kevin Durant.

After two years on the job, Nash has coached the Nets 92-62 record during the regular season and 7-8 record in the playoffs entering Game 4 on Monday night. Brooklyn was eliminated from the Eastern Conference Semifinals in seven games by the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Nets have entered both seasons under Nash boasting highly touted rosters that featured Durant, Irving and James Harden. Brooklyn traded the third member of its Big 3 in February for Ben Simmons.

47. "who else is going to run the offense? nic claxton? david duke, jr?"

BOS game plan is to not let KD get to his spots off ball and double him when he gets the ball. BKN has no answers bc they don't have a true point guard. they have 2 combo-ish guards in dragic and mills that are cooked and can't be trusted to make the right play. kyrie is looking for his shot first, then the pass. i wouldn't want to run my offense through him either. KD is easily their best ball handler and playmaker. they are limited by personnel. only so many adjustments you can make when your roster falls apart when one player can't do what they want. BKN went all in on a top-heavy lineup then lost their true PG. the price they are paying for that is getting washed in the first round

i'm neutral on nash as i think he's had a tough go of it these past 2 seasons and is managing these personalities pretty well. i think d'antoni did a lot of the offensive heavy lifting last year and this year the offense went to shit without him so nash might indeed not have the x's and o's / adjustment chops needed to excel in this league. but idk what you expect him to do coaching-wise with such a weird roster that is getting manhandled by the best defense in the league that is particularly suited to deal with KD and is exceptionally well coached. i wouldn't blame nets FO at all for moving on from nash but i bet they give him at least half a season with simmons/kd/kyrie

50. "Some of that is on Nash some is KD"

KD looked out of sorts game 3 - admitted he overthought it and wanted to let the game come to him. That's not how being a superstar works. You get yours AND help ya team get theres. You just don't stand off in the corner looking aloof.

KD has run pg at points this season. Maybe that was the move Nash needed to make in spots. Let Kd bring the ball up...they gonna double from 40ft away?

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

Though this is the third straight former Kerr #2 that they've hired.

I know Coach Brown has worked wonders with the Nigerian National Team, but this Kings organization may be hopeless. Gotta hope they draft a can't miss, league ready prospect sometime soon.

lol

If we were consolidating the league and eliminating teams, I'd start with Sacramento without batting an eye. Not sure there's a worse player-development team in the NBA.

But I'm happy for Mike. He's a good guy. The Kings are just where careers go to die. But shit if he can get them back in the playoffs? Amazing.
