Is it his questionable rotations, lack of in-game adjustments, or the fact that he changed the offensive scheme three times in the five full years he was in New Jersey? As you know, all of the good coaches have their systems and stick to them - Jackson (Triangle), Sloan (pick and roll), D'Antoni (run and gun), etc.

Is it his late game execution? You know, where he just would run ISO's for Carter?

Is it the way he was criticized near the end of his tenure for not being able to effectively communicate with a young roster? Good thing we don't have a lot of young guys.
He'd be an upgrade, has experience winning in the playoffs, knows how to teach defense unlike Triano and isn't a push over. You act as if i'm the only one that's mentioned wanting him here? If we can get Adelman, Sloan or Jackson here, by all means let's do it, but that's doubtful.
