    Man, this is about to get serious up in here. And we did it the hard way. We better lock up Morey for the next decade. Plus we still have T Jones OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    It would be VERY cool to see him on the bench during some games

    I always thought it was Hakeem who didn't want to coach in the NBA....

    Les is really serious about a championship, pulling all stops.

    If anything, it's more incentive for Asik to stay. He'll get personal tutoring from Dream himself.

    Everyone seems to be excited about Hakeem joining the team because Howard gets a chance to learn from the best in the business. I am not nearly as upbeat.

    First, Howard is not really a good learner. If he were, he would have improved by now after all those summers with Hakeem.

    Second, a full time mentor isn't far better in Howard's case. Steve Nash was there for Howard's catastrophic FTs all the time last season and there is hardly any improvement.
