The Kings actually got passed up by Kurt Rambis and instead opted for Paul Westphal. I used to think I was a Westphal fan, but his Sonics teams were so poorly coached that I cannot believe he actually landed another NBA head coaching job. The Kings are actually going to challenge the Clips for worst run franchise.
You know, I don't want to cause any controversy by saying so, but with each passing year the Maloofs look less and less like super geniuses. I hope Westphal is at least the kind of coach that can work WITH Petrie and not AGAINST him.
He hasn't gotten off, yet, and the court of public opinion doesn't seem to be overwhelmingly on his side. You're painting the NBA with a pretty wide brush, don't you think? All of the guys you mentioned would comprise 10% of the league.
