    I don't know much about Silas, but I like Hollins, so I could be on board with this.

    Why not the other way around though? Hollins would accept this then that's amazing!!

    Because Hollins has views on stats and offense that run counter to logic.

    I'd much rather take a chance on Silas than MDA.

    Silas/Hollins is the "establish a culture" route. D'Antoni is the "dig in and don't admit you were ever wrong" route. It's obvious which is the better choice for the longterm future of this team.

    I am a fan of using interviews as your main sticking point in these decisions. Guys who can think quickly, adapt to certain questions/situations, and stay composed are coaches that we want to have.

    It is a good way to run a search. Don't base your coaching search off of other people's words.
