Kenny Smith must be dissapointed.
No longer sick and tired that Kurt wasn't hired.

Fizdale is under the Pat Riley tree....groomed under Woodson, SVG, and coach Spo...very well respected coach throughout the league by players (see Wade, Lebron, Lillard, Conley, Parsons) and coaches. Was in charge of assistance coach duties and player development in Miami (see Bosh also responsible for Marc Gasol as an outside threat) Hardcore film room guy that can relate to the "modern player " by talking to players and explaining the "whys" as oppose to just "yelling" at players...stand up guy that does NOT sugar coat anything and not afraid to bench you if you're underperforming

Happy with this hiring and the fact we did our due diligence speaking to a lot of different coaches and settled on a promising young coach who's going to be leading hopefully a promising young team.

We got a tough, defensive-minded coach. Sure that Mills & Perry will draft accordingly. Hope that Fiz is good at player development, we need that too.

Well said:

The franchise's next coaching hire will need to "understand today's player" and be a strong communicator, Mills told reporters after dismissing Hornacek.

"Today's players are very different from yesterday's players," Mills said. "So, you have to be a person that understands who these guys are, where they come from, what their basketball journey is."
"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

Fizdale is built for new York growing up in the gully of South central and seen some shit growing up....very thick skin that will thrive ....will do anything to get wins and stresses it to his team. Makes teams play hard for him throughout respect...wants to build a relationship with the player and their loved ones

he was in my flip flopping pool...

I thought Bud was the guy,followed by Blatt and Mark

Im goin to hold off for now ,but at first glance I don't get the hire...He wasn'tt an improvement over Joerger and got canned after 19 games the following year...

I'm guessing we are in full rebuild mode...

Tao will convert if his boy Woody is hired as Fizz' Assistant.

After all these years Tao maybe we've found a compromise re our feelings on Woodson?!?!?

Bye Jeff. Wouldn't have fired you, but with the new coach in place, it's time for me to move on. Good luck in the future!

Joeger is a good coach also.

anyone that has respect from Pat and Pop should be good enough for all of us.

im pretty sure thats happening...only reason i like it is because they get along and when you have a FO that rides with the coach and a coaching staff that isnt trying to snitch on you or take your job...it will lead to success at some point.

but just food for thought...Woodson has been running the defense for the Clips right? How was there defense prior to this year I just looked up 2018 defensive team rating.

their defense was middle of the pack which isnt bad...kind of what i expect from that roster and woodson.

i wish we could get the defensive guys from Boston or utah but idc what coach you get...you need the soliders to have the quickness and wingspan to defend to cause havoc.

Although his statement regarding the Knicks doesn't come as any surprise to us (we watched all those mid-range jumpers), I like his metric. Helps to analyze shot quality. :thumbsup: It doesn't take personnel into account though.
