    I'll go with Messina as my #1 overall choice.

    Wish there were some more options in the poll, like Boylen.

    JVG would be cool but I'd like to see what all the hype over Etore Messina is about.

    Should have made Kelvin Sampson an option. I wonder if there's mutual interest.

    I voted for Van Gundy.

    I remember his teams being ready to play for every game. Disciplined on defense and played hard the entire game.

    They were offensively challenged but he didn't have much to work with besides Yao and T-Mac. I think Morey can give him a few more weapons this off season.

    Eh, not an easy choice imo, but definitely Messina or JVG between those names, maybe Hollins as assistant.

    I would also like to see if Joerger will get fired by Memphis, i think he's good.

    Given our situation & needed credentials, Mark Jackson should be coaching this team next year

    I want a coach that can run an offense like the Spurs and warriors.

    JVG offense is disgusting. If .....IF his team scored 85 it was an explosion of offense.

    No thanks.

    Grumpy's offensive schemes were hard to watch. I hope he learned his lesson and hires a great offensive mind assistant coach.

    More importantly, a stout defensive strategy must be priority number one in hiring a new head coach, and nobody fits that requirement better than JVG.

    If Les is serious about reshaping this team into something fans can be proud about, he will gI've the job to JVG before week's end.
