    How shitty is it that I'm looking at a tweet that looks like it's from Woj's verified account and I still can't make up my mind about whether it's real or if it's a fake account.

    Can someone ease my mind and tell me if this is legit?

    That sounds like a "you" problem. It's obvious that it's not a fake account.

    Vogel is ok but Nurse is on another level.

    Why did Toronto fire Nurse?

    Who will Toronto be targeting as their next coach?

    They fired him to hire Udoka. The Rockets leaking their interview worked.

    It’s legit. I signed up for alerts from Woj and Shams before the blue check fiasco and both are reporting the same.

    It’s going to be Nurse or Udoka for sure. Nurse being the safest. Great news for the Rockets!

    Desire for more structure and accountability? Isn’t that a problem for the Rockets too? Is Nurse the right man for the job?

    Maybe Nurse wanted more structure and accountability. Maybe the front office tied his hands on practices, minutes, player discipline? This isn’t worded clearly.

    What brand are they?

    supposedly Green and KPJ want Nurse!!!. They actually thought Stone said we are getting “Dick Purse” so they got excited.

    that’s all I got to report.

    Maybe the best thing about this is that Udoka and Masai are friends so Udoka is 99% out of the running for us. He's not coming to rebuild a team when there's a spot on an underachieving play-in team GM'ed by his buddy. Plus given what's gone on in his life, it would probably be good for his mental health to start over in a new country. Good fit for them, great news for us.

    Nurse is my second favorite option so I would be ecstatic if we got him.

    So, what are the other coaching vacancies throughout the NBA?
    That is, who will also be interviewing Nurse? @J.R. ?
