    Clutchfans ......

    shrugs.

    Is Keith Jones still around?

    Something about him bothers me. Maybe it's all of the injuries during the Tmac-Yao years. He is just tainted with bad juju.

    No need for Finch when we have Mike D'GOAToni.

    "Major coaching free agent" . . . teehee :)

    "Gotta keep him because he runs the Adelman offense."
    "Rick, you gotta put him on your staff. We want you to train him as your successor."

    Passed over for Kevin McHale, J.B. Bickerstaff, Mike D'Antoni

    Yes, though it really isn't Finch's fault at all. People ran away with a rumor.

    Awesome!! Though this whole issue with Morey forcing him on Adelman looks even worse now. If he is an offensive guru then I am a millionaire.

    I guess they had philosophical differences?

    My translation: Dantoni is gonna do it wrong

    The majority of this board will respond with good riddance however I think this is going to make us look foolish in a few years.

    He's a quality coach. Couldn't really do his thing because if Harden demanding the ball all the time and the limitations of the surrounding cast.
