I don't think Del Negro is a bad coach, actually. The Bulls made the playoffs and played really well down the stretch... and he'll have, arguably, more talent in LAC than with the Bulls.

Regardless if Del Negro is a good coach or not... it sucks to be a Clippers fan. It must be like being a Tampa Bay Bucs fan back in the 80s... I'm not trying to pick on you TMC, that's the comparison that popped into my head. My friends and I used to talk about how lucky we were to be in Niner country and not in gay pirate Tampa Bay country :)

No offense taken. I started following football in the late 90s, with Sapp, Lynch, Nickerson and Brooks in place, so I didn't have to endure those 20 years of suckiness.

There are rumors Shaq might go to the Hawks. Let me tell you this. If the Hawks can find a way to get someone like Chris Paul, in addition to shaq, that would be the team to beat in the NBA.

Paul will be leaving N.O. eventually. If the Hawks could trade 10 million dollar expire contract Jamal Crawford, Rookie Damian James, and two future first round picks, they can have their franchise set for the next 5 years.

Why? Shaq seems pretty useless now... i mean, sure Paul would help anybody, i just don't see shaq as a big difference maker.

I think shaq can be a good 15-20 minute player on a good team. I think his unique frame is still difficult to go against his offensive and defensive posts. He is old though, but he still has a little left.

If anything Shaq allows Horford to play his natural position more throughout the game ... Paul / J. Smooth / Horford... that's a quality trio.

Oh c'mon. He is the best player on that team. Whether you like him or not, you gotta give him props (even if he is very overpriced).

Paul (Bibby)
J.J.
Smith (Marvin Williams)
Horford
Shaq (Pachulia)

I think that is a great line-up. And I think it is very reachable of getting.

Not really. The best player on that team is Horford, although he's not as flashy. But, without him, they wouldn't be a playoff team.

I found an interview of a former warrior, guess who... :wink:

I could play little point, two, or three.


When ask about his relationship to Don Nelson...
Its was a player/coach relationship.Like with anybody we had little disagreements of things. But he is a great basketball mind and just became most winning-est coach. Not a lot you can say besides that.





Enjoy
