What a completely

What a completely underwhelming hire for an underwhelming franchise.
I feel sorry for Bucks fans.

As a Bucks fan I can say we

As a Bucks fan I can say we all knew this would be the hire... This is how it's gone since Hammonds was hired as GM... The move or moves that fans want or think should happen don't and the guys we don't want get hired, signed, or traded for... Me personally didn't want Drew... I'd much rather have Hollins, Shaw or Sampson but I will withhold judgement til I see what happens with the draft and free agency... I believe the Bucks #1 free agent target is Josh Smith and I don't know if this helps or hurts our chances of signing him... I know he was suspended for a game this year but I'm not sure what his relationship with Drew is like... Hopefully it doesn't hurt our chances of signing him...

what makes you think Milwaukee could get a better coach?

Hollins isn't available, Shaw and Sampson can hold out for better jobs. And Josh Smith isn't signing with the Bucks. There's nothing wrong with wanting more, but it's not the GM's fault nobody wants to be there.

This was the last year on

This was the last year on Hollins deal so all they had to do was ask for permission to speak with him or wait til June 30th... Based off of all reports I've seen Sampson wanted the Bucks job... He wouldn't have interviewed for a 2nd time if he didn't... And Josh Smith has already said he wouldn't mind playing in Milwaukee and around the trade deadline reports were he would sign an extension if traded here...

what bad with Larry Drew?!?

what bad with Larry Drew?!? he did excellent with Atlanta last season, take them to the playoff with not so talanted roster, make them overachiever.

Don't see much a problem with

Don't see much a problem with this hire. No other coach was going to suddenly turn the same Hawks team that has been a 3-6 seed and a 2nd round out at best for the past 6 years into a perennial contender. That was a dead end job. Unfortunately, so is this one...
