View Full Version : Sam Cassell Wants to Coach the Celtics

09-13-2008, 02:26 AM

Cassell, a 38-year-old guard who was part of the Celtics’ title run this year, told a reporter about his plans shortly before speaking at a City Hall news conference. “This is my last year playing with the Celtics,” he said. “Next week, I’ll sign the contract.”

After finishing the 2008-09 season, he plans to exercise an option to join the coaching staff. “I am playing this year,” he said. “After that, I have the option to do coaching for them.”

How do you think he'll do as a coach, and do you think he'll ever become a head coach one day?

Man..Sam Cassell is the ugliest mofo on the planet. Thank god for basketball cuz that guy would've NEVER gotten laid...EVER!

Being a coach should keep the money rolling in for the women he pays for. So kudos to Sam for thinking ahead.

I'm tired of people calling sam cassell an 'ugly' mofo all the time. I'm sure he's probably better looking than a bunch of the ugtards out there chirping him. But anyways to answer the question, yes I think he will coach, and yes I think will be very successful at it. He's got a great basketball mind.

He has a good basketball IQ. He'll do well as a coach.

Another Avery Johnson ..

not a bad idea.

He would be a decent coach. Although, he isn't one of those players that you think possible coach in the future when you see them play the game.

Another Avery Johnson ..

And he didnt do too bad, he took a team to the finals.

Gonna be hard 4 players 2 take him seriously with his face/voice. But I'll admit he's a smart player so he shouldn't be 2 bad.

I think Sam would be a good Coach more than people think but I just hope he's not a control freak like Avery Johnson.

as much as i hate Sam i think he would do pretty well.

and lol S.J. he is ugly as ****. hahaha :D

Yeah he could enjoy some success as a coach, he seems like he'd be a very hands on coach. He will develop young guards pretty well IMO.

Sorry I didn't mean to insult your boyfriend.

He needs to coach no one

My guess is he'll start as an assistant with the Nuggets. He's already talked numerous times about working for Karl (and talked directly with Karl about that, if I'm not mistaken).

He may want too, but since Rivers just got an extension and Rivers won a ring, Sam Cassel will be lucky too be a bench coach.

Why would the Celtics replace Doc Rivers with Cassell? Down the line maybe, but not in the near future. I think he'll be a ssolid coach. He's a smart guy who understands the game well.

So many idiots on the forums... that's what I've come to realize lately. Too many kids. Anyways, regarding the Thread Topic, I think Sam Cassell is going to make an excellent coach. In his brief stint as a Clipper, not only did he run the point, but he also served as an assistant coach basically, mentoring young players and improving the team to it's best season in years and a playoff appearance. He is my alltime favorite player, and I'd love it if he coached the Celtics, or any team for that matter. His unfortunate appearance has nothing to do with anything.

Well, then why don't you raise the bar instead of lowering it yourself if you feel that way? :eyebrow:

I think he will be a great coach considering who he learned from Rudy T Flip, and Doc
