related to this issue...i know its been talked about before, but i dont remember reading any clear arguements for or against it:

how would you guys feel if this happened to the warriors?...basically nelson is sent packing and mully takes over coaching duties.

I'd be wrapped as i feel Mully would give AR and Brandon consistent minutes

I don't know what McHale has to do to get fired... he's the one to blame for the mess that Minny has become, and still nothing happens.

I can't give you a honest answer, E-Man. We just don't know what kind of coaching style Mully would have. I kinda agree with Quazza, but it's more a feeling than anything, nothing we can be certain about.

The TWolves actually look pretty good, roster wise this season. McHale couldn't do much worse getting high draft picks but he has done alright the last couple of years. He should be gone soon anyway

the big thing out of all this is that it's actually a demotion cos they're saying he'll no longer be GM

He's been there so long and he hasn't made them real good, that's why. I don't think McHale deserved any job with the TWolves after the length of time he's had to make things happen, others get sacked well before then. Like I said though, the TWolves roster has potential this time, "potential".

This is the organization giving Lurch his chance to either **** or get off the pot. If the team is successful with "his" guys, he will keep his job. If they are not, he will be gone. Its probably easier to dismiss a coach than a GM. The Wolves have some good pieces, but I would say they are one of the teams in a darker place right now than even our Warriors.

So... it means "we're so cheap we don't want to pay a new coach"?. Because it certainly looks like it.

He has since traded away all those guys that he coached to a winning record. He kind of Isiah Thomased that franchise.

He's been in charge in Minny for so long that I think it's more suitable to say that Isiah McHaled the Knicks...
