Until I read some article in the net... this is some summary about it

Seriously he's helping Rajon Rondo Improving his shooting game


WOW Consorting with the enemy, Instead of helping his former team go to the NBA Finals, be proud of them of finally winning

WOW Loyalty right? Where are the Cavs fans at for not recognizing this :(


Does it mean majority Cleveland Players has no real love/loyalty to their franchise and is already rooted within their history

Unlike Kevin McHale and Jerry West ;)

I'm no Lebron fan, but this is somewhat what i've been saying all along. Blame cavs management for not supplying Lebron with the right pieces. With the exception of Jamison, former GM Danny Ferry got scrubs who started in Cleveland like Eric Snow, Jiri Welsch, Sash Pavlovic, Larry Hughes, Playoff No Show Mo, 37 year old Shaq, etc. I would like to see what would've happened if the cavs traded for Gasol and signed Artest instead of signing 34 year old Anthony Parker and trading for old crusty shaq.

Don't deflect the attention that was caused this is two different situations. Mark Price is a specialist , shooting coach, that goes to places that ask for his services.

So Snow, Pavlovic and Hughes were good enough to help Lebron get to his one and only championship series, but they still aren't the right pieces? Lebron has had teams that could win it, they just couldn't man up and do it.

You really think Knicks' fan are gonna blame a guy like Pat Ewing for coaching Dwight Howard? Hell no. That's the exact same thing as the Mark Price situation.

Basically what it all comes down to is that certain players want to continue working in other fields once their playing days are over and of course you can't expect every franchise to employee all of their great players of the past so they go to the open market and try to score the best job they can get. It really has nothing to do with what they did in their playing days and it certainly doesn't mean they don't love their old team and/or fans

Rajon Rondo:
3P%: 21.3% FT%: 62.1%

Is he helping him or hurting him?

I really don't know if this^ is sarcasm but if really examine the teams that've won it all the past few years you'll see where your logic is wrong.

Hakeem Olajuwon's has worked with Kobe Bryant & Dwight Howard among others.. SO WHAT.....Mark Price had to go to Atlanta to get a job... its ownerships fault for not hiring him.. loyalty is a rare occurance in the NBA today

If Mark Price is trying to get a coaching job and the Cavs brass is to busying giving a guy lke Mike Brown chance after chance after chance, then what is Price supposed to do? Sit around with his thukb up his @$$?

Pat Ewing got dumped by NY at the end of his career and they havent given him consideration for coaching positions, and the same can be siad of a lot of NBA players. McHale went to Minny, Bird went home to Indiana and Danny Ainge went to coach in Phoenix while Doc Rivers went to coach in Boston: none of these teams the guys played for.

Most NBA plaayers dont stay with the team the played with after their playing careers are over. Even West went to Memphis. The only guys that come to mind are Joe Dumars and Magic.

agreed.. the Suns hired Terry freaking Porter as their coach a guy who killed them during the early 90's...

You mean why Price is not loyal to the team he played all his prime for rejecting tempting offers when he was a FA only to see how they traded him for a pick because e was "old"?

Great now more threads defending Lebron. Can't wait for the season to start so all this can be put aside.

If you really paid attention to the NBA you would have already known this. They discussed to no end during the playoffs. This just shows me that you would watch the highlights on ESPN, but never bothered to actually watch the games. Doesn't suprise me though, you've been a Miami fan for what...3 weeks now?

First thing I thought.

He's a free wheeling shooting coach, He helps out all these young bloods with no stroke.

Key word here is teams they've "played" for. A former player shouldn't feel obligated to retain a life long commitment to an organization they once belonged to. Especially pertaining to issues as trivial as passing on knowledge to players actually seeking the help.

Can you imagine what a *** he's gonna look like if he refuses to help a player on the premis of "Nope! My loyalties lie with "_____" therefore I am afraid I cannot help, sorry."
