    I don't think you have to be an "euro" to know this. Lots of intelligent basketball fans from US know that to be true.

    Congrats. Nurse was the head coach of the Vipers for 1 of their 2 D-League championships.

    a coach who doesn't have any offensive system?
    I don't say that he's the worst coach in the league but he's a one way coach aka extremely flawed.

    Too bad he didn't go to med school. He could've been Doctor Nurse.

    Rumor is Raps success in regular season belongs to him, guy is on Morey ball wagon. As basketball philosophy is: dunk or three.Over all spend 2 seasons with Vipers. As of expectations, a lot of ball movement and finishing with 3 or dunk.

    Nurse received the most votes when executives weighed in on the next generation of head coaches.

    At times I think organizations like Toronto & Minnesota sabotage themselves on purpose. They suck for a long time, hire a great coach like Casey, and just as they start to turn the corner they fire the coach just to start back over with another coach. Sam Mitchell, Dwayne Case & Mark Jackson are all coaches that should've never been fired

    That is a cheap deal. . . . . IF he sustains them . . . same level . . .
    That will have to double or triple in 3 years
