Player Development and Coach for Cavs
I was reading that Vinny Delnegro is being rumored for the Cavs job, I was thinking that might not be a great get considering that altough he has had success, I don't think that he will be an ideal for for developing their young players. I just wanted to see what coaches do you think are best at player development in the league and who would be a good for the Cavs?
I was thinking maybe George Karl! I think he did a decent job with his team once melo left... I think he'd be a good coach for the Cavs, he can motivate, he a HOF coach and most of all he wins games...
The Cavs are an absolute mess right now. They have talented individuals but the pieces don't fit at all. I think it is well known that Kyrie and Waiters do not like each other. Is Kyrie the long term answer for the Cavs? Is Anthony Bennett going to turn into a solid contributor after a disastrous rookie season? Whoever is hired as head coach has their work cut out for them. After picking either Wiggins, Embiid or Parker supposedley in the draft, there will be a lot of young talent in Cleveland. They need a coach who can come in and discipline, have guys put egos aside and have them play for one another, because lord knows that's what Cleveland needs desperately.
George Karl Slipped my mind, it's still weird not seeing him on a nba sideline. He would be a great choice he got the most out of that nuggets team before he was fired. I think he can do some of the same things with the Cavs. The biggest problem other than suring up the defensive issues would be the dion and kyrie situation.
I don't understand why the NBA loves recycling coaches. I do believe Karl is probably the best of the recycled coaches but is he definitively better than someone who hasn't coached? Not for certain. If the Cavs go this route, (Or the Lakers for that matter) It will end up badly. There is something to be said about fresh faces, and hunger to prove yourself. At this point in his career why would anybody believe that Karl is as hungry as a young up and coming coach? Or that he would have desire to do anything but collect a check?
NBA is the only sport that a coach who has never won anything can hang around for 25+ years.
George Karl with all his experience would be a great call for the Cavs, he helped turn Melo into a superstar and although he didn't have a great play off record in Denver but you don't have as many winning seasons as he did unless you are an elite coach. The only issues with him could be that Cleveland were the first NBA Team he coached 30 years ago and he was fired by them so would both sides want a return and at 63 years old and with a few health issues would he want to return to the bench.
George Karl started out in Cleveland. Pretty good choice.
The Grizzlies should look at him too, but I heard he is not in the running. Jeff Van Gundy was spotted at a Memphis area restaurant today. He would be a good hire.
I wonder if they talk to Coach Cal? Cleveland has some good you talent and the top pick. Cal gets a lot out of great players. And, maybe LeBron comes back too.
Lionel Hollins would also be a good choice. He could help turn that young Cavs team into a contender.
if i was OKC id be looking at george karl, maybe even just as a very highly paid assistant because they need an offensive system rather than just relying on 2/3 guys to score. right now brookes is in over his head.
George Karl has that first rounder reputation on his back? I think that'll give him enough motivation to come back and prove people wrong. I'd like to see him as our coach next season.
The Cavs really need to think who is the best developer of young players they can think of and try to get him. Who that person is that is the issue they need to look at. A Scott Brooks type would be ideal or maybe Nate McMillan who moulded the Jailbreakers into a play off team. With Nate being a strong disciplinarian he would be a good choice to try and blend the young talent.
