    Scottie Hopson - should sign just bc of name. Him being a SF is just an added bonus.

    JVG was already a great coach and his long hiatus from the profession has given him over a decade to study the game and its evolution. He demands respect from his players and doesn’t tolerate nonsense.

    If Rockets don’t win a ship this year, I would love it if the Rockets brought him back. Would be interesting to see what he can do in the modern NBA with two top 5 players and lots or quality role players.

    Rudy T won ACTUAL medal with Brad Miller and CBA players. There isn't even a CBA anymore.

    And Brad Miller wasn’t even an NBA player, yet. It was the summer of his draft year...the draft where he went undrafted.

    but I was told by CFers that JVG was no longer a viable coach... that 'the game had passed him by..."

    ...smh....

    Would love to see JVG coaching over no defense/just keep chucking MDA... despite what your statistics tell you...

    Apparently this was like a 10 minute scrimmage after drills?

    This is what happens when you let the media know things.

    Jvg prob wouldn't be as crazy successful now as he was before. Less hated his pace and flow. Plus his discipline caused headaches with Super Bowl Franchise.

    He's a smart great guy who understands he'll transform back to Gollum with the new generation of personalities and the focus on MDA inspired offense.

    Took an 8th seed to the finals, so the praise is well deserved

    Scrub Force Five could've won silver if they didn't play the gold medalist till the finals.

    We had Gold.

    They had the Russians beat, but several bad calls down the stretch allowed Russia to comeback from a 10-pt deficit in final 3 minutes.

    Here's the bs charge on our last possession with game tied. (And before that, we got shoved out of bounds on a rebound scramble, leading to a crucial, 2nd-chance three by Russia. And a phantom no-call when Miller got knocked down on an inbound pass.)



    (That's the complete game, btw, if y'all want to watch the whole thing.)

    That's just sad but at least it'll be fun to see who can dethrone team USA.

    Would LOVE to see JVG take over the Bzdelik role (until MDA gets tossed...) ... I'm sure JVG would command a hefty paycheck... but it wouldnt count against the cap - and Tilman is all about "whatever it takes..." :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
