They should try to keep Brooks.

Jeff Van Gundy is that good.

JVG all the way for that team. i love it. scotty doesn't know!!

There is growing speculation that the Thunder & coach Scott Brooks are far apart on a contract extension and the holdup could led to a split

Get rid of him for a coach that knows how to work the ref...Press conferences are there just to complain about the ref. Use any tool like stats to show the FT differences so you get those calls the next game. It's a time horrored NBA tradition... Phil, Doc & Pop, do it..IT WORKS...Your players shouldn't say anything but you as a coach should have took one for the team..

Personally, I'd pick both of them over Brooks.. He's a great guy, easy to root for, but his lineups and lack of tangible adjustments makes him expendable imho.. Doubt it happens though.

Please! Please! Please!

JVG is the exact same coach as Scotty Brooks. Neither know what the hell offense is. I love JVG but he would not make that team any better.

Not to mention, I know JVG's family and he has said many times that he will not get back to coaching until his children are done with school. I believe his daughter will be a junior on high school this year.

what about SVG? I'd take any of SVG, JVG, or Zen Master over Brooks

Both would be an upgrade over brooks.

is it just me or should brooks have continued to let durant and westbrook play in the last 3 mins of the quarter last night ?

miami cleared their bench. 3 mins left down 15 why wouldnt brooks keeps westbrook and durant in the game ? in 2-3 mins you telling me westbrook and durant couldnt drop 15 pts on miami's bench ?

i think that was a rookie mistake. miami cleared their bench with 3 mins left. okc did the same. they shouldnt have. they should have fought down to the last 2nd. specially vs miami's bench.

the shear fact that brooks kept playing perkins(who was non effective and also had a partial tear groin) was kind of a head scratcher. I do think he is a good coach for this young team but JVG would be a solid name. PJ too,

Zen master returns and installs the triangle???

06-22-2012, 03:30 PM
JVG will just leave you when your team is on the decline/(yes Im that bitter :P) Phill would be an intresting fit

Phil Jackson to OKC. Calling it.
