    Exactly - the difference being he PUT TOGETHER that batch of players who would have trouble ordering a family-style meal together, much less play together.


    But...

    I'm not even sure those guys could order their own meals off the menu. No way were they going to agree on the family-style choices.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I still want Byron Scott. I'd be fine dealing with Mark Jackson, but I feel it would downward spiral into not the best scenario, and I don't want to see anything bad have to be dealt with between the Pacers organization and Mark. He has done too much for this franchise to end up having to be fired.

    Hire Byron Scott, convince Mark to come and be a top assistant and mentor our young PG's. Hopefully that includes a player like John Wall. I swear, I lay awake nights wondering what it would be like if we got lucky enough to get the number one pick...and actually get him. Sigh.

    Just get rid of Jim........PLEASE.

    I agree....Bryon Scott has Coaching experience leading young Teams to the Playoffs and has ties to the Pacers Organization and Fans as a former Pacer. To me...it's a no-brainer if we had to find a new Coach.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Thanks, those are the reasons I feel that way, in addition to him having a great basketball IQ as a player and a coach...

    It just BAFFLES me that the Pacers are playing so badly, Obie is obviously the domino that needs to fall, AND Byron Scott is available. I know I'm talking about spending someone else's money, but if I owned the team and there was ANY way I could do it, I would spend the money and go get the guy. Aside from a nice coaching reboot for the players, it would be great for the fans. I mean COME ON! The guy is a proven coach and he hit the shot that carried the franchise back into being meaningful! Heck, I'LL DONATE A COUPLE HUNDRED BUCKS to get the guy here!

    I think Mark will be worlds more successful than Isaiah was. But the assistant coaching argument is fairly valid. I think Patrick Chewing would be a good choice, especially for Roy's sake. Then he could bring in Charles Oakley to work with Hans! Watch out world!
    I agree that Mark would be worlds more successful than Isiah "I destroy all that I touch" Thomas. Other than that, NO WAY. I don't want either of those stinking KNICKS anywhere near our players! hehe

    "Been around coaches" is not the same as "prepared to organize and run a practice", "prepared to develop a game plan", "understands the scouting report for his own players and can maximize their strenghts and hide their weaknesses", and "ready to handle conflict resolution in the best interest of the team".
    Certainly. I don't disagree.

    I am sure many coaches learned a good deal while serving as an assistant. But I don't believe that spending time as an assistant is always necessary for everyone, anymore than being vice president prepares a skilled political executive to be president.

    As far as Mark Jackson goes, we can't be sure how ready he is.
    And I won't be here to see the day

    I'd hang around just to see

    Mark Jackson has interest in St. John's job, and agent will talk to AD soon. Here's no-brainer for his staff: George Mason's Chris Caputo.
