Thanks MR.

I like JOB's explanation of the decision-making skills needed by point guards. Jamaal really is playing great ball so far this year.

Great to hear this stuff. Not much Pacers coverage on the west coast...

Tag team, FTW!

I was only home for about 30 minutes after work before I had to be gone again for the next several hours, and I thought to myself "I hope Magic Rat's recording this one". Thank you, sir!

Thanks, MagicRat. You have no idea how much those of us who aren't local folks appreciate these linked audio feeds of the show.

JOB gives great interviews. He's been candid and insightful in every show I've listened to. The think that sticks out to me is he's honest, firm yet fair towards the players. His passion and love for the game and for coaching really shines through.

I know he finds coach Phil Jackson...amusing ( ;) ), but he reminds me of him from the standpoint that he game plans, he teaches and he mentors. He gives the players lots of room to rise or fall, but even when they stumble or fall short he's right there to pick them up, dust them off and help lift them up again...kinda like a father, huh? Anyway, I like him. He's definitely different from RC.

Phil Jackson isn't the most popular coach in the NBA among the coaching fraternity. They respect his coaching ability, but they don't respect much else about him. JMO.

I like when O'Brien said if Phil had taken the time or was healthy enough to show up for the meetings.

If you took a secret poll of all 30 NBA coaches and ask them who is the biggest jerk among them, I'm sure Phil would win that - and Phil would enjoy winning that
