Idea For Bulls Coach

>> Friday

Once again, it would be coaching search time for one of my teams (although I use the phrase my team fairly loosely this year, I just can't take bad NBA basketball). Grant it, Vinnie probably cares about this a little more than I do, but I just thought of an outside the box idea here (the retread names being thrown around do nothing for me). Why not take a chance with John Calipari? I think his time at Memphis, especially learning and perfecting the dribble drive motion offense, would benefit him in a second NBA go around. The culture at Memphis, dealing well with a large group of heralded players, should also prepare Cal for a second go round with NBA players. His relationship with William "World Wide Wes" Wesley, a respected and well known figure in basketball, aids Cal in having the credibility to deal with NBA egos. From what I have heard, Calipari has expressed interest in the Knicks job, so this would not be totally outlandish from his end.

While most people chalk up his first NBA tenure as horribly bad, it would not be as bad as most people think. In his second season with the Nets, they won 43 games and made the playoffs back when the East was not a joke. In his third season, injuries and the lockout marred what turned out to be his final coaching run in the NBA. With more maturity and a very positive experience at Memphis, I think Calipari could be that rare college coach who succeeds in the NBA. I think the idea has a lot more merit than people who would casually dismiss this out of hand, and frankly expect it to be better than whatever retread Paxson eventually settles on.

As a college basketball fan, I wanna see Calipari stay in the college game.

As a Bulls fan, I couldn't care less who's coaching them. I just want a damned point guard.

Zuch 1:57 PM  

Fuck any point guard, I want Derrick Rose (come on Stern, we need that #1 or #2 much more this year than in 1999).

I guess isn't that important, but hiring another disciplinarian like Carlisle just screams of the team tuning him out 20 games in. I'd also be all for Marc Jackson.
