So basically Stephen A is just pulling this out of his ***.As is typical with Smith, this appears to be idle speculation masked with a kind of certainty he brings to every topic ... whether he knows what he's talking about or not. Still, it is worth pausing and thinking about a fit between Gores' Pistons and Izzo.
Thinking about it though, it could be a good fit personnel wise. His teams are all about winning on the boards and his work with our bigs could be huge. I think he's a better NBA candidate than most NCAA coaches because he doesn't win games based on his ability to lure all the top talent to his school, he wins by actually coaching. As much as I hate him because of the rivalry, it would be pretty cool if he really came to Detroit.
But, like they said it might just be classic Stephen A "idle speculation".
Wonder if he really would excel in the NBA
Doesn't surprise me. Gores is a MSU guy so I could see him trying to make a run at Izzo.
Not a chance Izzo leaves MSU. Just hire Hollins now before he has other options in the offseason and gives us the finger.
Why would he leave MSU, to come coach one of the most unstablest coaching jobs in sports? I personally hope he declines the offer if offered the job, because MSU basketball would really fall off if he leaves.
This would be awesome, not only does Detroit get the best coach they've had since brown, bit msu would suck even more.
Izzo would be a good coach here. He's been pretty good at the collegiate level.
Boston Red Sox: 2013 World Series Champs, less than 3 weeks to opening day
Indianapolis Colts: 11-5, 2013 AFC South Champs, great season guys.
Detroit Pistons: 24-39, games this week vs. Sacramento, Toronto and Indiana
Ottawa Senators: 28-25-11, games this week vs. Nashville, Colorado and Montreal
I am for whatever makes us a contender. I'm sure I can speak for all Pistons fans.
Haha we need something, I think that's been the biggest issue the past 5 years. No real coach, players have had no coach to play passionately for.
