    Dammit. We need to refer/disguise him as another Sam Hinkie. Theyd stay away then. And if Gersson were to get a head job, I would hope hed fall into a better situation then Brooklyn.

    Karnisovas also came up in the Rockets organization before going to Denver a few years ago.

    Don't forget, Arturas Karnisovas was our international scout for five years as well.

    Stick that in a pipe and smoke it, ya haterz. Morey reins supreme.

    Also, i want this to happen to increase our chances of landing thaddeus young for TJ

    Edit: i was beaten to the punch, haha

    Looks like Nets could take away both Rosas and Thibs away from us haha. I'm glad the Nets are trying to get actual basketball minds on board though.

    Gerson has always been trying to leverage to a GM role, let his ass go.

    The brooklyn GM and coach positions have to be the toughest assignments in all of NBA. Unless the owner decides to give them three plus years to clean house, no one can come out of that mess looking good or competent.

    How do you become a GM? Half this GM's are not even qualified. All I need is a MBA from an Ivy League and some fancy spreadsheets right?

    Why does our so called clueless front office keep getting poached?

    I thought they had no freaking clue what they were doing. Especially that Darnell Murphy guy.

    It's not leverage... It's being good and taking the next step in life. He's a person like you and me and he is highly sought after. Good for him, sorry you can't be happy for other people trying to find success....

    That's how I feel. You have no assets and no draft picks. How do you fix that? I'd be happy for him to get a job as a GM in the East - but that team? Not so sure.

    kinda weird that someone such as yourself who has achieved so much academic and professional success in their career would harbor such ill will towards another person being considered for a big promotion.

    but what do i know.

    If he truly meant it, why not give him the opportunity in Houston?
