Coaching interviews: Just keep Miller! If it ain't broke don't fix it, damm.

Wait, it ain't broke?

There isn't a better coach out there than Miller?

His priorities for the team he’s coaching match my priorities for the team I’m pulling for. In addition to making clear progress in a short time with the whole team, he has a track record from the GLeague stint starting or reviving players pro careers.

Also I really liked the way Mitch, Frank, Kevin, and RJ were playing down the stretch and if we don’t trade any of them, they will be our four most important hold overs.

Thanks Fac, that's pretty much what I would have responded, so you did it for me. A few additional comments:

Miller works for the players we have. A more established coach may not, remember Larry Brown? You never know, but if we try and fail, then it will be too late to get back what was already working. Besides, some of the "star" coaches, such as Thibs or JVG, with their inflexible styles and 7/8 men rotations are probably wrong for this group.

It would be a welcome surprise for the Knicks to show some fucking loyalty for a change.

Clearly, Miller connects with the players. Also, he's VERY articulate, which certainly helps with the press in NY.

PS. BoZ, I went and checked out the Trump Admin. forum. Maybe I just picked the wrong date (last night), but the two pages I saw were dominated by none other than Chico Cartero. I mean, the guy is so ridiculous that he's funny IN RELATIVELY SMALL DOSES, such as in here. But too much of him can give one indigestion. Let's take the "BUY GOYA". We all know why he picked that signature, no explanation required. Well, in your favorite forum he devotes a whole post to explain it. Just a bit too much. NO THANKS.

I'm fine with Miller if that's the way they want to go.
Just good if the front office and HC (and players) are on the same page.

Glad they are doing a thorough coaching search.  Hopefully we'll have a front office and coach that stay together for a long time.  Maybe some day we'll even have a stable set of players.

I like Atkinson. 
Creative, flexible, worked well with yute in BKY.
Anyone that Kyrie and KD don't like gets my vote ...

He doesqn’t buy shit.

He gets walked so he can poop in the yard and not on the rug, occasionally.

No, he’s no kind of dog. He’s just overweight for a rat because of that NJ welfare state and white privilege.

Atkinson and Thibs are two sides of the same problem for me.

Kenny develops players and schemes and builds confidence and belief, but he gets out coached down the stretch through in game adjustments and that can be a very big problem.

Thibs is a pro’s pro who’s done the grinding and grunt work to build some amazing defenses. With the Bulls we were starting to see where he could take talent, but all of his Wolves tenure was like the tail of his time in Chicago. Short rotations and over leaning on stars followed by personality burnout can also be a very big problem.

Both of these guys have the track record and regard that associate HC roles are pretty much out of the question, even though that’s where they’ve both really shined.

Rondo broke his thumb, out 6-8 weeks.

So A Very Bradley & Rondo both gone.
Means LeBJ has to do a lot more on both sides of the ball.
And they have to use JEarl, Q Cook and Caruso a good deal more.

Makes it less likely LAL comes out of the West.
Though things could get weird, especially if a star such as Kahwi gets the virus, or if a whole team has to drop out in case of an outbreak.

Florida catching up to California for 2nd most cases (behind NY).
The whole state is a hotspot.  Not sure they'll be able to bubble off the campus from all the outside contractors, food suppliers, etc.  They should double test all players and workers to guard against false negatives.

Westbrook Tests Positive

Florida is a fucking Petri Dish. 

Not unlike Kiid's mind.  Infectious for no good reason, save an exaltation of DumbAss.

How about we ask Westbrook his schedule the last 2 weeks

Where has he been hanging out?

Could be helpful.

I hope he wasn’t listening to some degenerate grifter claiming the whole thing was a hoax that would go away in warmer weather.
