    I'm as excited as everyone else to have Dwight here and to have him work with McHale and Dream. What about CD? Does he still work with the bigs? I'd be super excited if Dwight worked with one of the last true masters of post moves.

    Believe he is enjoying his retirement and living the rest of his days without having to work again.

    CD worked with Asik on his free throws last year before the year. Mchale gave him credit for it in the media towards the end of last year....looking forward to see if he can do something with D12.

    CD is da man. I think he worked with Asik, so he's still hanging around. Would be fantastic for Dwight.

    He does pretty good work with big guys but its all about the attitude of the players. He is not re inventing the wheel or anything but it is good solid coaching. Keep in mind this is an older man who does not look like he knows anything about basketball. The player needs to buy in and be committed.

    It didn't really help some guys like Joey dorsey who had poor attitudes and didnt believe in the system.

    CD has been the man for a long time. He bleeds Rocket Red like NO OTHER....and is directly responsible for our history of great bigs. He will continue to be there for Dwight like the others....literally a Rocket for life.

    He has that magic touch with big men, the more time we can get Dwight with him the better for all involved I think.

    I'd be surprised if CD wasn't doing some work with our bigs. I certainly hope so!
