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.

More current info is out there for most Americans, though I do fear the homeless, no access to tv/radio/newspapers could have no clue about the COVID issue.

Russ got the virus before going to FLA

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 ...

And what's the point of switching to Atkinson if we already have someone that is also creative, flexible, works well with OUR yute, etc?

Well, I think it's silly to pretend they are the same.
They have their individual strengths and weaknesses.  But more important is how comfortable the FO is with either of them.

Also, Atkinson has proven he can be a good head coach and can handle NYC. 
He seems to have more of a presence too.

But I never really think much about trying to match a coach with a team.  And in this case we have no idea which players will be here long term.  So it's more match the coach with the front office, though I'd prefer a guy who is good at development.

I'll be very surprised if they stick with Miller.  But it's okay with me.  Not like we're winning a title in the next 5 years.  So a solid coach who improves things is fine with me.  Whoever gets chosen, I hope they remain coach for a good 4 or 5 years at least.

Two good jerseys I've seen in the past week:

In a game, a girl was rocking a Philly Fultz jersey

And another day, at another court a guy had a black Jokic jersey.

Well, that makes three of you: Chico knows I'm low IQ, Kamster says I'm dumb and BoZ thinks I'm silly. That's almost a majority of people who post on this forum.

Now, for all the bright minds, I didn't say that Miller and Atkinson are the same. Only that the qualities you listed for Atkinson are not lacking with Miller.

The question to BoZ would be, why is Atkinson a better fit than Miller? Is Atkinson so superior that, even though we saw impressive improvement with Miller, it's worth it taking the gamble of trying a different "improver"?

PS. I know the "impressive improvement" happened over a very low Fizzy-base. You gotta work with what you have.

I'd like a long-term integrated management team.
Whether that's with Miller, Atkinson, or somebody else in the mix.  The churn hasn't worked. 

Generally, a new front office wants to bring in their guy who meets their requirements and see things their way.  Also, Miller has a thin resume compared to other candidates.  In his favor, he knows the players and organization and did all right last year.   A deep search isn't exactly a vote of confidence, but we'll see what the end result is.

Atkinson or Miller would signal a patient rebuilding approach (more or less).  Thibs or JVG a more win now mentality and likely the arrival of more vets.  I'd favor the first approach.  Though I'm not terribly excited about our yute.  We totally blew the KZ thang, so now we're back to hoping to hit on a lottery pick.

Russ got the virus before going to FLA

Petri dish comment thus makes little sense.

No. 

You checked out how the virus is spiking in Florida.   

Next thing you'll be echoing Rush Limbaugh's calls for us to all chill and accept death and cannibalism like the Donner party.

Does this <click> mean Chico is leaving us?

Oh, nooooooooo, please, PLEASE!

Chico heh Cartero provides comic relief. I don't want him to overwhelm this forum, like the Trumptin forum, but I do want him to keep on posting here IN MODERATE DOSES.

Well, if he had left, the median forum IQ woulda shot up by about 50 points.

This was the really funny one:



More current info is out there for most Americans, though I do fear the homeless, no access to tv/radio/newspapers could have no clue about the COVID issue.

His current info: Shine a UV flashlight up yer ass, drink bleach shots, go to indoor rallies and spit on each other.

Well, Les, ain’t you glad I convinced him to stay here?

Had he left, we woulda lost 16.67% of the current 6 posters we still have.

Tragic! 😫
