Assistant coach? She’s hot AF.
What is the attraction to Fizdale?

From what I can see:

He is just over a year HC for the Grizz- not a bad team

He went .500 in his one year

Then after a disastrous start was fired very quickly into Y2 for issues with Gasol and their management.

What am I missing?

Does it mean anything that the minute Fizdale was fired that team got immeasurably worse? He wouldn't be the first coach who was fired to appease a top player. In this case, it didn't fix anything. They fired him after a 7-12 start then proceeded to finish the year 22-60.
Officially reached out to Jackson and JVG, too.

Isola tweeted it. Can we let go of the 90s Knicks at some point? They weren't the 90s Yankees.

he's well regarded around the league. Whether that translates to coaching success - we'll see.

ugh. This reeks of Mills.
Hopefully it's just a wide net.

But it sure would be nice of they discovered the next great coach rather than a retread.
I want it to be a young coach

That is the face of the franchise for the next 15 years...

I love van gundy and I dont think I would be mad but by n it would feel like a band aid type of hire...
