The whole Hoiberg experiment has failed miserably right?

Fred is gonna get a lot of blame but it's time to blow the Bulls up
post #76625 of 93193
Can't really blame Fred IMO .. This group no longer wants to play together and it's been obvious for a while. Regardless of who we hired to replace Thibs, I'm pretty sure the results would be the same mean.gif

Damian Lillard is a glorified Kyrie Irving with good knees.

Glorified.... Dame Lillard is better than him.

This is pretty spot on. I haven't been following the Bulls very much this season, but you can make this observation just by the last two games they've played. There doesn't seem to be any cohesion with the team and it's players.

I know in sports when the sky seem to be falling, the coach will be getting most of the blame but I don't think this this one falls principally on Hoiberg. These guys are just worn out and in desperate need of change.

I'd most definitely keep Butler, and have a real good look at where I am with Rose. He's been playing very well since the All-Star break, but I don't think he would be very conducive towards contributing to the team in wins moving forward; solely based off his convergence as a basketball player after all the injuries. Trade him now while he has some value, before the media gets a hold of what's going on and maligns his worth.

Noah has worn himself out along with Taj. A blow-up seems all but eminent at this point.

Nah, Chris Paul is too short to defend from long distance. Pretty sure Steph is shooting like 50% from 3 on his stumpy self.

If CP3 was 6'4" tho he'd be the Kawhi Leonard of PGs. Right now he's like the Luke Walton of PGs.

Do you honestly believe the issue is with management? It's a personnel issue and you won't hurdle that hindrance by just cleaning up management.

Interesting story on how Nike lost Curry to UA
Quote:
Strachan recalls of 2013, "That summer, when it was really decision time, [Nike] were looking at Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis coming up. They gave Kyrie a camp and they gave Anthony Davis a camp. They didn't give Steph a camp."

The pitch meeting, according to Steph's father Dell, who was present, kicked off with one Nike official accidentally addressing Stephen as "Steph-on," the moniker, of course, of Steve Urkel's alter ego in Family Matters. "I heard some people pronounce his name wrong before," says Dell Curry. "I wasn't surprised. I was surprised that I didn't get a correction."

It got worse from there. A PowerPoint slide featured Kevin Durant's name, presumably left on by accident, presumably residue from repurposed materials. "I stopped paying attention after that," Dell says. Though Dell resolved to "keep a poker face," throughout the entirety of the pitch, the decision to leave Nike was in the works.

In the meeting, according to Dell, there was never a strong indication that Steph would become a signature athlete with Nike. "They have certain tiers of athletes," Dell says. "They have Kobe, LeBron and Durant, who were their three main guys. If he signed back with them, we're on that second tier."

Has there been a high profile college coach that's succeeded in the NBA? Brad Stevens is the only one I can think of. I guess Larry Brown, but he's had so many jobs that I can't even count him.

But Pitino, Cal, Mike Montgomery, etc. have all been busts at the pro leve.

Nike's washed. We should change the name of this site to UnderArmourTalk or maybe just SneakerTalk.

Dude should almost get fired for that. Not just because Steph became who he was, but because they couldn't get the basic things right. Like pronouncing an American name & reviewing the powerpoint. Inexcusable.

It's early but Quinn Snyder is developing into a good head coach (Missouri).

SVG used to coach Wisconsin if that counts.
