    I think any talk of any different coach for this season is a waste of band width and time.

    If Jim wasn't fired after December of last year he is not going to be fired this season when the team is (as of now) a playoff team and only 2 games below .500%

    The one sure fire way you could tell that the team was not going to change directions was that they did not bring in an experianced coach to be an assistant. They allowed Jim to remove Lester Conner & fill the void with sycophants thus insuring that there really is no one to take over as an interm coach.

    Also anybody who thinks for 1 second that Bird will take over needs to really just put that thought to bed as that is not what the man is going to do.

    If I needed a coach I'd hire him.

    I'd say he's probably one of the better options out there.



    An improvement in win-total every single season he coached in Atlanta; from a dismal 13-wins to 53-wins, the most Atlanta had garnered since winning 56-games way back in 96-97.

    Pretty impressive. I'd say he got the shaft with the Hawks and I'd definitely give him a shot here.

    I agree with UB. He's okay. I wouldn't be all that excited about him and I don't see him as a major improvement over Jim O'Brien to be honest. I can tell you one thing, I would not be excited about Woodson's offense. We would see a healthy dose of isos by Granger. Meh.

    I'd say he'd be a decent coach. I'm not sure if he would be better than decent if he were to coach the Pacers, though. I'd definitely be open to giving him a chance. About the only negative I can really think of is his relationship in Atlanta with Josh Smith--I know that was a big distraction during Smith's time under Woodson. Other than that, I can't think of many negatives other than only not making it all that deep in the playoffs with the Hawks, but that's nitpicky.

    Not a bad list. I think Mike Brown and Lawrence Frank are the two most appealing names to me. I have a couple of buddies who are big Hawks fans and let's just say they weren't too upset about Mike Woodson getting the axe last year.

    Yeah, that's exactly what they said when the Hawks hired Larry Drew. It was time for a change, they had plateaued under Woodson. Hiring a member of his own staff was a bit of a head scratcher to them too.

    Just for fun, I think if this were the offseason and the Pacers did axe O'Brien, the first calls they would make would be to Mike Brown and Sam Mitchell.

    I don't think shooting is one of those things you lose. Unless you lose your eyesight, or get a disease like Parkison's.

    One of the best, if not the best shooter, I've ever played with is 50+.
