I think I've settled on the idea of Isiah as our GM and Laimbeer as our head coach. I want Laimbeer as our head coach regardless, but the only way I'd take Thomas as our GM is if Laimbeer is our coach.

I really liked Season 1. Still need to start Season 2 as you told me I should do weeks ago on FB.

If Phil decides to forcefully implement the triangle from the front office, something I wouldn't put past him, Smith could be a very good addition to that style of offense...

Trailer Park Boys is one of the greatest comedies of all time. I strongly recommend everyone watch it. Season One is a bit awkward because its not entirely funny, but it makes up for itself in that randomly Ellen Page stars in it.

Who said we'd be replacing Monroe? If Payne is on par with Monroe but with a jump shot and more bulk, would that not be an incredible off-the-bench asset?

Interesting idea. If we won the 1st overall pick, then the overwhelming likelihood would be Milwaukee picks 2nd and Philly picks 3rd.

I kind of already talked myself out of him after seeing him play in the tournament. He seems so damn passive on the defensive glass...

I was referring to when he first came on board more so than this past summer. By this past summer, I think Gores rightfully brought in outside consulting to help with the process.

I honestly have read nothing on Hill's aspirations post-player.

I honestly don't know how Gores could do more as an owner, outside of selling his LA home, uprooting his kids and family, and becoming a Mark Cuban-like owner. And honestly, there is no guarantee that that kind of ownership would net better results...

That's fair. I'm not saying he should have the job, but I like the idea of thinking outside-the-box and looking at Grant Hill is certainly that.
