    The days of any ol' son of a 'Vic being a great coach in this league are gone. Nowadays you need babysitters to tell players how great and unbelievable they are.

    This dude looks like the antagonist in the second season of a police procedural on CBS.

    We already saw what long leash does to that team with Mike - they shrink. Obradović would test every mother****er on that team so come playoff time the weak minded ones wont be getting any playing time

    Pop admitted to stealing his plays, his offense relies on PG breaking down defenses creating open shots(preferably for 3) but at the same time there is no standing around. Master of adjustments. Proven winner... For me he seems perfect. At this point if somebody doesnt want to play for the team then **** him and trade his ass but i doubt players of highest level wouldnt accept him. Hell, PJ played in Europe and he is the leader of that team... he knows who Obradović is for sure


    And remember most of you ridiculed Doncic for being great in euroleague. Obradović is master of Euroleague - 9 european cups is absurd

    I can imagine him physically attacking Westbrook when he goes on a turnover spree again

    A coach that doesnt suck up to his players. We need a team first atmosphere here in Hou

    Has he ever been coached by the GM and 2 players on his team? Because thats the challenge he will face here.

    I bet he would quickly improve shooting open 3's.

    With the finals ratings down maybe he can take Adam Silvers place. The league would be about basketball at least.

    Obradovic would be a crazy fit on this Rockets team.

    Only worry is his communication, not necessarily English, but his authoritarian style.

    Interesting note, Vogel stole the idea of peel switches employed on Rockets in Lakers series directly from Obradovic.

    Not only a genius offense coach but he's a proven winner.

    He and Morey would be simpatico on skill ball. Every player would need to be 3ball, passer, driver and disruptor on D.

    Best HC candidate IMO, not even close.

    “You see, I coached Zeljko and he was my assistant, we are family friends, so I can say that I know him very well. According to this, I can also express the opinion that one real and great motivation for Zeljko to continue to work as a coach in his stable and mature years, would be to go to the NBA,” Ivkovic said in an interview for Nedeljnik, via Sport Klub.

    Wow, Obradovic is no longer with Fenerbahce.

    He is really available.

    https://www.euroleague.net/news/i/aolly7j9bvddms8s/obradovic-leaves-fenerbahce-for-one-year-timeout

    And willing.

    “He [Obradovic] went to America several times and will probably do it again during this ’empty’ season. I claim that the only real motivation for Zeljko would be to take over an NBA team. And it would be a great opportunity for that team to take,” Ivkovic added.
