    This Bucks team has misfired in the playoffs twice. They've got to change it up. Eric Bledsoe has got to go. This also might be the right time to cash in on Brook Lopez. This is another team where I'm like "why didn't you get Kemba?"

    If you told me LeBron would score 29 in the 1st half tonight and the Lakers would be down three, I'd have told you that was propaganda.

    I dunno. He did pretty well with a Westbrook/Durant duo- taking the Warriors to the brink in the conference finals in his first season. But yeah, the Westbrook/George playoff pairing didn't work out, so there's that.

    I'm just sort of trying to avoid Tyronn Lue...

    What they need is a modern Chuck Daly. Damned if I know who that is.

    I like how Rondo pretty much took the entire year off and then shows up like this for the playoffs.

    my gut leads me to believe the bucket list college job for Billy D is UK....he went there with Pitino, knows how special that job is, and if I recall, it was his final big recruiting class as Associate Head Coach before leaving for Marshall that won it all in 1996. I think he gets another NBA job soon.

    I was not watching closely early in the game because I was watching the Reds game....but I saw no adjustments by the Rockets. Did I miss any major changes in an attempt to slow down Lebron or AD? This has always been the issue with D'Antoni....some suggest it is arrogance, but I am not sure the reason.

    Donovan wants the Knicks job, right? That's got to be his grail.

    Spo has done an amazing job with this Heat team. He's as good of a coach as there is in the NBA right now.

    He turned them down twice, I think he's "been there, done that, got 2 rings" with college ball, maybe when he's in 10 years when he's done with the NBA he takes the Providence job.

    If I were one of the many teams with a coaching vacancy, I'd check into his assistants. Seems like good organizational DNA.

    One off the board guy who interests me as a potential coach is Raja Bell. He worked in the Cavs front office when they won the title, he's got a big basketball brain and he's hard-nosed.

    Playoff Rondo strikes....
    Krono beat me to it but I’ll add I don’t think he would ever come back and never took the job either time it was offered because of the fishbowl that is Kentucky. It’s what ruined Billy Gillespie and the fact you are more than a coach but also a public figure.

    He actually left for the NBA I think in large part due to recruiting. Think he got burnt out on it and especially having to go against Calipari as well. I see Indiana and Kansas being possibilities but they kinda fit the fishbowl narrative too.
