    Default JOB to reappear as Mavs assistant coach?

    Poor Dahntay and DC:

    http://espn.go.com/blog/dallas/maver...ame/jim-obrien

    The Mavericks' search for a successor to lead assistant coach Terry Stotts will continue without two of the prime names Rick Carlisle had been targeting.

    Former Toronto Raptors coach Jay Triano, according to NBA coaching sources, is poised to join Stotts' staff in Portland as opposed to coming to Dallas.

    That means Triano and Los Angeles Lakers-bound Steve Clifford, two highly regarded assistants that sources say Carlisle was eyeing, are off the market.

    Former New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns assistant coach Phil Weber remains a Mavs candidate, sources said.

    Yet the widely held assumption in coaching circles is that Carlisle wants to hire an assistant coach with head-coaching experience after the departures of Dwane Casey (to Toronto) and Stotts (to Portland) during the last two offseasons.

    Two coaching sources said late Thursday that a new name to watch in the Mavs' search, who fulfills the head-coaching prerequisites, is Jim O'Brien, who replaced Carlisle in Indiana in the 2007 offseason.

    Wow. I don't see how Rick and JOB would be able to coach on the same team. They have such different approaches.

    They're both stat geeks, though.

    That probably makes JOB the perfect assistant to Rick in all honesty.

    Interesting pairing.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    This continues to speak of O'Brien's high currency with Bird. I don't think Carlisle would be considering OB as an assistant if Bird was telling him how terrible he is.

    I believe you are right about that and I do not believe that Bird ever thought he was terrible. In fact, he did a great job of taking what Bird gave him and rebuilding on the fly. Much of the success we are having now is a direct result of JOB's good work..... ...

    Yes. He did a great job building Roy Hibbert's confidence and developing Granger's defense. He also helped McRoberts become a great 3 point shooter....and showed the world why Troy Murphy should get 40 mpg. I still can't understand why LA doesn't agree.

    But team chemistry is where he really helped us the most. I would not be surprised if he went down in Pacer history as the players favorite coach.....

    Hey!!! ... McBrick was a totally lost cause. It wasn't his job to build Hibbert's confidence, it was job to make him a basketball player. He did that. Granger has never played defense for anyone including a highly regarded Coach K. No one is going to be able to do that. He was a disiplinarian and those kind do not get love from the players. But those players needed that because they had walked all over Carlisle.... Give JOB this current team and a mandate to win and not rebuild and he would do fine and he would have a different approach. Bird always supported JOB and I am sure he still does.... ...

    Jim was needed for a year...maybe two. But not three. Jim was indeed needed to lay down the law. But the Pacers proceeded to trade all the problem children and by year #3 we had choir boys getting beaten down by the warden. He should never have started year #3.

    ...and no, Jim wouldn't win with this team. Roy wouldn't play as well for him...and Roy is the best player on the team. Also, last year Granger actually did start playing a little defense again for the first time in years....but he wouldn't have under Jim. Under Jim, it was all about the three and Granger was fine with that. Now more is being asked of the players. They are now expected to play a complete game instead of a flawed gimmick.

    Can we just start a petition to get him banned from the NBA? Or force him to coach the Heat, Lakers, Knicks, Nets, or Pistons? That would really make things interesting.

    DC was one of the most vocal cracking on JOB too, and this should be lesson to everyone on why you just keep your mouth shut in situations like these. You never know when the person you are cracking on might work with you again.

    No kidding. Not like people are always moving around (be it in the NBA or in the "real world")

    Not to mention in todays world you never know who is reading what you wrote (especially if you meant to make it private and accidentally made it pubic)

    I actually think JOB is better suited as an assistant.

    On another note, I find the word "reappear" a funny way to describe his return, as if he's some magician or he had literally become invisible.
