I hate having to be to work early. I don't think I have anything else to say, we disagree on approach. Time to let the beast play out...

Once that buzzer sounds for the end of the finals things should pick up. Only 7 days till the draft, let's see if any of those rumors Windy was talking about happen. No team will care about his street cred when they cut him saving over 4 million of their cap. Liked the correlation though... :thumb up:

talk about a double-standard.

Wade has a ring already
Miami has room to sign a top tier FA to play next to Wade
South Beach

compared to
No rings
No cap space, no trade assets
East 4th

In comparison, Wade's situation is ideal.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Looks like no one has to worry about Michael Malone anymore. Windy Tweeting that Malone is set to join Monty Williams' staff in NOLA.

I don't know who takes this job without a commitment from LeBron. And I don't know how you convince LeBron to come back to a team that doesn't have a coach.

Meditate on that riddle, grasshopper.

The Nets got Avery Johnson, I'm sure there's someone out there willing to take the job.

Granted, the list may be down to 63-121, Brian Shaw, Kelvin Sampson, and Dick Motta but someone will take it before long.

Izzo is known for running a billion set plays. They may run a different set every time down the floor. Although, many of the sets have similar action... if you defend a set a particular way, they run a similar, but different, set to counter how you defend it.

That was the adjustment at Kent State when Stan Heath (a Michigan State guy) came over and replaced Gary Waters. Gary ran some sets, but was primarily a motion offensive coach where players were to be aggressive in transition offense, and then make pass/cut/drive reads off reading each other and the defense. There was much more freedom in Waters' system. Heath's system choreographed most of their offensive movement. Initially players did not like it at all. However, as that year progressed, they bought in and found that the sets Heath had in put KSU's best players in position to do what they do best. It also allowed them to play a shallower bench, which allowed their studs to be on the floor longer.

MSU is consistently physical. They set back-breaking screens. They execute with precision. They are the best rebounding team in the country (or at least he is the best rebounding coach in the country -- often one of the top statistically in nation annually).

All that being said, I don't know how any of that translates to the NBA or this particular team.
Sorry to bring this back up, old news and all. But I thought I would follow this up. The number is 83!! I heard the other day from another Division I head coach that Mich State had 83 set plays last year. Now I am sure they didn't have all 83 on the play sheet for every game. They probably had a featured set of set-plays for each opponent. But..
