    Was he ever any good as a player? I hated watching him in NBA2k because his face usually filled up the screen, never saw him play from what I can recall.

    He will be the "body guard" for the coaching staff. If the players get lippy they call in the enforcer.

    I prayed it was another Diop but he is already a better coach than he was as a player.

    Bobcats legend.

    Why does this make me feel uneasy about his coaching abilities ... maybe he's good with graphs/PowerPoint and such?? o_O

    Maybe a FT coach or something? I believe ppl who could not achieve something, somehow have the ability to feel for those who got stuck there…
    Say, phil Jackson had achieved nothing as a player, when being transferrd as coach ppl call him ZEN MASTER…
    On the contrary, MJ can't understand why kids fail putting the ball in the hoop.

    Diop blocked Lebron at the rim, so he might be able to help Wood on that end. Maybe on rebounding too.

    Ones play and ability to coach/teach are not the same. Rudy T was the exception not the rule.

    This is someone that Silas has wanted.

    He is well thought of.
