    Zan Tabak's cousin, Dale Dobak, has also been hired as an assistant.

    Heh, they referred to Tabak as a former 'star'... I had a hard time referring to him as a 'basketball player'.

    Thought it would be Brian Cook, but the league ain't ready for him. The opposing teams would scream for a Maccabi lockout.

    Good for him. What's Richard Petruska up to these days?

    I actually thought this could be Thomas Hamilton joining a MEL (Major Eating League) in Turkey as the head coach.

    Doing a random google of Zan Tabak brought up some pictures. Including late Rocket Backup Center Jason Collier. Turns out dude died of a sudden heart attack 10 years back.

    How long before he fully absorbs those euro coaching powers and we can replace McHale with him?
