I say...............Mario Ellie quits the Mavs staff..............comes back to us, Nellie shows him the ropes (he doesnt listen as much as Nellie would like)...............and Mario takes over.

He would have the respect of the players as he was always a bad ass and "players player"..............he would have the hard nosed D and hard work attitude, as well as the offensive pedigree and experience.

For the record...............I love Mario, so am slightly biased............but I think he would great as a Head Coach.

Considering we released him from his contract when Nellie signed... I'd say it's as probable as Al Attles coming back to coach us.

Yeah................I wasnt happy when Ellie left, didnt really make sense............power struggle between him and Nellie, clash of personalities, dont really know.

Averey will be picked up quickly by another team to be the Head Coach. If there was a time for Nelson to go and Mullin to get a great coach, now would be it to get Avery, who had even better success than Nelson after replacing him and one of the only coaches that ever did. Him being a former Warrior is a huge plus and would fit well.

Can't beleive Dallas let him go, just stupid and harsh
