|I hate the Spurs but if someone was going to be the hero on that team I sure am glad it was Steve Kerr. By the way, what happened to Duncan tonight. He should have been eating Dallas alive|
I LOVE WRESTLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

|Well you know something, Mean Gene...|
The Mavs had Duncan pinned down with the double and triple teams much like in the Phoenix series, so it was very important for others to step up. Fortunately, Duncan doesn't have to score 20-30 points every time for the Spurs to win. But if you had picked Steve Kerr to be the man of the hour for the Spurs, you would be a liar. It was unreal to see him just hit those shots and inspire the team, but then again he did play a major part in the 4 rings he earned. On to face the Nets!!

|I don't understand why they haven't put Steve Kerr in more often. They better put him in during the Finals if they want to win.|
As for who's winning, I'm picking the Nets in 6.

Cactuspete, the point I was trying to make was that if Jeff Van Gundy bailed on a team that was doing relatively well, what makes everyone think he won't bail out on a team that's likely to struggle even to make
the playoffs for a couple of years?
Larry Brown has a well-deserved reputation for being a wanderer, true. But before he leaves his team, he takes them to the next level. The Pacers and 76ers both benefitted extensively
from Brown's leadership, and in the case of the Pacers, they were able to build on that after Brown left, and reach even greater heights. (With the Sixers, of course, that remains to be seen).
Hell, Brown took the Clippers to the playoffs a couple of times in the early '90s. I daresay the reason they failed to capitalize on that after he left was... well, they're the Clippers, and they're owned by the worst owner in pro basketball.
So, in conclusion, were I general manager of the Cavs, I would put Jeff Van Gundy below both Larry Brown and Paul Silas on my hiring list. I'm not saying Van Gundy is a bad
coach, don't get me wrong... I just think that either Brown or Silas would be a better choice.

|I'm with Cactuspete on this one. You have to least admit the irony of suggesting not hiring a coach because of his bailing on a team, and then turning around and suggesting Larry Brown.|

I know you're swept up in fanboyism, but the Sonics were a worthy opponent in 1996, and by all rights would have won a championship in the mi 90's had George Karl not been the abomination of a coach that he is. How has Milwaukee not fired him yet?
I think his contract gives him a tiny piece of the team. They could still sack him, because it's not like he owns any MEANINGFUL portion, but they've invested entirely too much in him. (In more ways than one.)
