    Same things Westbrook brings to the table. And former star Bobby Brown. Harden likes them.

    Bro the last time he coached a team was 3 decades ago. The Frank Vogel arguement makes no sense because he took a team centered around Paul George, David West, Lance Stepehenson and Roy Hibbert to the ECF twice. That team was played well over the abilities of the talents of all those guys. Roy hibbert has never played well outside Indy, same with Stephenson. sure it was PG before the leg injury. But PG he hasn’t fallen off. Vogel has had success before the lakers he was just overlooked Bc he was in Indiana.

    The argument posed by the poster was that Lucus was “incompetent” based on his records with poor sixers and cavs teams. Vogel had a few mediocre seasons in Indiana and two losing seasons in Orlando. If the logic is that a coach’s competence is based on wins and losses then how did is Vogel Any different? The poster’s logic fails. Competence is not measured in wins and losses without the context of how good the team is, what the coach did with the roster he was given, and decision making under duress. Unless you know all these factors how would you call someone incompetent?

    Lucas never had the success with the Spurs. Vogel had with the pacers. I just don’t agree with this comparison it doesn’t make sense. Vogel also redeemed himself in less than a decade with the lakers. It’s been 3 DAMN DECADES since Lucas coached a playoff team.

    John Lucas absolutely brings nothing to the table as far as being the head coach. He's nothing more at this point in time but an assistant. Find someone else to coach this time. I know Harden and Westbrook would love to have him, that's because they know they can have their way with him.

    I'd say yer half right... we do need a motivator and psychologst... and compassion has to go...

    but we're gonna be stuck filling out the roster with d'leaguers - thats just reality (given JH & WBs contracts and TF is cheap...).. MDA wouldnt play them... if only there was someone who could make these scrubs playable... hmmmm...

    Rumor: Team USA Senior team actually lost twice to Jeff Van Gundy-coached squad
    [​IMG]

    • [​IMG]

    Say what you will about Jeff Van Gundy’s sometimes outdated view of basketball when he’s commentating on television, the man can flat-out coach the game. Van Gundy was in the news on Wednesday after he coached the USA men’s national select team – the “JV squad” to Gregg Popovich’s “varsity team” – to two victories over the primary team in two separate scrimmages ahead of the first meaningful exhibition game against Spain on Friday at 10 p.m. EST.


    The second scrimmage featured a 19-point blowout, but the first was noted by The Athletic’s Sam Amick:





    As you can see, while the scrimmage was short, Van Gundy bested the primary team twice on Wednesday with a squad of overseas players, unsigned players and players signed to Two-Way contracts such as Justin Anderson, John Jenkins, Yante Maten, Chris Chiozza, Chasson Randle, Travis Wear and undrafted rookie DaQuan Jeffries – who was one of the few players with an actual NBA contract on the roster, with the Magic.

    No one here legitimately knows what he brings at all.

    That goes for every single candidate.

    Anything a poster posts on the subject is an “educated” guess at best.
