    It is, but I hear that we are retaing most of the coaching staff including Elston Turner ( which is a very good thing).

    Personally, not a fan of Elston. The players did not buy in to what he was trying to do defensively and our defense was one of the worst in the league (prior to going back to switch everything).

    Just smash that like. If he’s bluffing, the skeptics win. If he gets us a name and it’s right, his legend continues.

    if it’s John Lucas we burn this place down.

    If it’s John Lucas, I’ll be done with this team for a while. People always say that, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to mean it. I’ll still follow them casually, but that hire will confirm all of my worst suspicions about the organization.

    I left the team when they traded Hakeem. I can definitely do it again.

    Does it really matter if we hear the 'news' before the official release?

    it would be great to just get some closure. If Lucas is the hire, I get to move on immediately from investing in this team and its roster and coaching moves and become a fan who just watches the games and moves on like I do with the Texans. I will have seen enough of the Tilman era to know that nothing good comes from caring.

    If it was Lucas why would they not announce it already? Or is it a situation where Tillman is telling Harden we won't trade Russ lf you agree to JVG. But then I remembered it's Tillman and Lucas is the cheapest option...so I don't know anymore.

    I feel the same way. It feels like there is a hold up of some sort. Like maybe there’s more candidates or maybe they are trying to pair the new head coach with strong assistants. But with Tilman I’ve come to expect the worst and nothing would be worse than Lucas. If you would have told me MDA was going to be gone and John Lucas was his replacement a year ago I’d have laughed you out of the room.

    I've chatted with Brabra quite a bit since his trade deadline debut. He told me who his sources said will be hired. Some of you will be mad, most of you relieved.
