IS THIS A BAD JOKE?
Hey! It’s a good thing John Paxson waited all those months. Because his “due diligence” paid off in spades. Right? Wrong. Vinny Del Negro? This is an irresponsible hire. A young club with the top pick in the draft and you bring in a guy with no experience to shepherd them?
Earlier KG had spoke of the preparedness of Dwane Casey. Casey has a ton of experience, both as a Head Coach and an assistant. You’d think he’d be the perfect guy to bring in to lead a young ballclub. Or what of Tom Thibadeau? Guess what? Vinny Del Negro isn’t going anywhere. Why not wait until the Finals are over to give him an interview? Wouldn’t that be due diligence?
Instead John Paxson hires a guy with no experience. Ridiculous. Or how about Avery Johnson? At least I would be comfortable with him. I know that the first time Joakim Noah or whomever cusses at him or goes off he would know how to deal with it.
Vinny Del Negro? Really? I can’t wait to hear why he is ‘the guy’. Of course, details need to be finalized so there is still a chance this falls through. We can only hope.
