I don't know why he would leave what he is best at just to coach this team of all teams. I know he played there, but that team is carrying a lot of ugly contracts. I don't see a lot of room for improvement.
What about the Hornets? I don't get it either, but they allegedly could win it all (at least in the conference), from what I've heard. They may not have one ginormous superstar (Baron Davis hasn't hit "Ginormous" stature yet)
