I don't - he's old and can't say he was a master innovator in Utah. He coached the same way for 30 years or whatever length of time he was there. He's also fairly abrasive and a bit of a weird fellow from what I read about him. He did good things in Utah, but he had good players too and he's never really overachieved.

Not saying that he's a bad coach or anything, but I don't think most teams should feel a need to lay a path to his door.

SVG on the other hand, that's a guy who I'd hire right away. the only problem is he appears to want a year off. He would have been really good in LA, for either team, but the clippers just extended delnegro and brown is in his 2nd year only ...
