Wow, what? That makes no sense to me. For what it's worth, I would *much* rather have Joerger than Coachoskov.

I don't know. Joerger seems to have an uncanny ability to ruffle feathers wherever he is. Sure, you could say it came down to circumstances and front office instability in Memphis and Sacramento. It's hard to ignore that a pattern is developing, though. I'm personally excited to see what Kokoskov can do in year two. I think having 12+ months of stability in the coaching position is going to be beneficial in and of itself.

Ya joerger has clearly had run ins in Memphis and Sacramento. No chance he’d get along with Sarver

Hunter

Lue is a below average coach but an above average "yes man" so he's automatically in the running. The Lakers are so transparently fake. It's disgustingly funny.

I'm enjoying watching Lebron fade from relevancy and also simultaneously take down the proud Lakers franchise with him. It feels a bit like when they built the "superteam" with Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, only for it to almost immediately fall apart and fail.

Sounds like he knew Walton would be available when he fired Joerger.

Griff says he had to find the right owner in order to return to a front office job. Well that explains that. No wonder there was no talk of the Suns interviewing him, lol.

EDIT:
He said Benson convinced him of her commitment to winning by agreeing to what Griffin described as "outrageous demands" related to his desire to bolster staffing and resources in the front office.
Sarver never would have done that. Lol.

Exactly. If you are not NY area, LA, or Bay Area, and maybe Miami, you can't count on your city attracting the best of the best for you. You need to have a better equipped/staffed business. From scouting to analytics to media relations to training to chefs.

Just to throw out a different perspective...

Jeff Bower (James Jones) is a below average GM but an above average "yes man" so he's automatically in the running. The Suns are so transparently fake. It's disgustingly funny?
