Yes, of course! Any one of us could take over the Warriors and lead them to the greatest start in NBA history. Nevermind the fact that Steve Kerr, a guy that has won NBA Coach of the Year, has never been able to replicate it, even after adding Kevin Durant. And I'm sure this team is so unbeatable that they probably just swept the playoffs, right? Or wait...was that the year that they needed some questionable officiating to beat the Thunder in the WCF, and then lost to the Cavs in the Finals? I'm sure if you were their coach they would have won the championship.

Arkansas is looking at Musselman from Nevada. He would be a heck of a hire. He can recruit 5-stars to Nevada. He would be able to recruit them to Arkansas.

He's gotten 1 5* recruit that I can see. I went back to the 2015 class or so, and every other recruit he's gotten has been 3* or lower. Not hard to get lucky with a big west coast recruit, given the client of west coast basketball right now. MUCH more competition for kids in the midwest.

I don't know what the recruiting rankings for the twins were, but he didn't recruit them out of HS, they transferred. I was actually pretty unimpressed with what he did with the talent he had on his roster the last couple of years. Especially this year. That team looked like they hadn't been coached at all. Total free for all on offense, and little defense at times.

Not saying it'd be a bad hire for Arky, but I woudn't come away expecting big things from them any time soon.

Oh, and his current class for next year is ranked 140th. I'd think they would need a few bodies, as I know of at least 3 seniors, so it's not a body count issue.

Nevada has lived off the transfer market. According to Verbal Commits, Nevada had 6 D-1 inbound transfers in 2017; and 4 more D-1 inbound transfers in 2018. Ten (10) inbound Division-1 transfers in the last two years. That is rather amazing.

I guess Reno has an appeal that is hard to match, at least to some players.

Thought perhaps Dan Majerus at Grand Canyon might get a look for a bigger job.
Is Steve Henson got a shot at moving up?
And Danny Manning still has a job at Wake,his buyout must be awful for him to still be there. *Maybe Danny can find a top 5 Star and give the kid's Dad a job as an assistant.

He didn't recruit any 5 stars to Nevada. They're all transfers.

Musselman to AR is done.

Rumors of Rick Barnes to UCLA.

An LA times reporter is reporting Lon interviewed for the job. He thinks Barnes is their first choice though. I would be ecstatic if we could get rid of lon without having to insult him by firing him.

My thoughts exactly.

Lon Kruger to UCLA... Mike Anderson to OU.

I would be ecstatic.

"fastest 40 minutes" comes to Norman... return of an actual recognizable system. He would do really well in Norman.

Interesting.

If Lon did leave, offer Chris beard whatever he wants. Make him say no.

I think Joerger is a good coach, but he never made the playoffs or had a winning record. Hardly anybody survives that in the NBA.

Sac finished ahead of the Lakers because they were decimated with injuries. They couldn't even pass the Clippers, and the Clippers were tanking their roster.

The Clippers were in no way tanking. Talking heads assumed that when they traded Harris, but they were wrong. Look at their record the final two months. It's not like they lost the majority of their games and the Kings couldn't take advantage.

St, John's has contacted OSU's Mike Boynton about their opening. He's coached in that area before but I have no idea how much interest he has.

I never said they tanked their season. They played to win, but they tanked their roster. Their trade was so lopsided in terms of players that it cost Philly 4 picks. That Clippers roster is BAD. People that are constantly complaining about Doolittle being too short should look at Montrezl's height. Doc has been in the league a long time, but this might have been his finest hour.

The Kings finished out their season 9-17 over the final 26 games. That isn't getting it done.

I've always been amused that OSU hired Boynton. If he succeeds, why in the world would a black guy born in Brooklyn decide to stay in Stillwater? If St. Johns makes a legitimate run at him, I bet he'd give it some real thought. It'd be kinda hard to hand off a P5 job if he has any expecations for next year, though.
