    Either way, if Nurse is a Morey guy, then I want him.
    that was the report while it was happening. it was after the season where Houston sucked and Howard & Harden hated each other and ppl thought Morey could be in trouble the next season

    Didn't hear much about that but Morey doesn't seem like one of those guys who would get fired that easily.

    that sucks. hate seeing someone that young, who is getting so much praise for their work on the development side leave the organization.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    So another candidate off the board. I hope Masai and Webster have something up their sleeve.

    They're waiting to offer LeBron a coach/player offer. If he declines then our top 4 will likely still be available.

    Lewenberg reporting that it appears to be down to Nurse or Messina.

    Spurs assistant Ettore Messina was in Toronto for a 2nd interview last week. Belief is the Raptors have narrowed their head coaching search to 2 leading candidates – Nick Nurse and Messina – with a decision expected to come this week or next.

    I can't see Messina getting more out of this team than Casey did. Id prefer nurse out of thosr two.

    I am fine with either one. I am more concerned with the guys not respecting Messina though.

    If they can keep Nurse and have Messina be HC then that would be great.

    Why are you concerned?
    “It’s about winning,” Stoudemire said. “You win, you’re going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won — Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you don’t win, nobody really wants to see you.”

    It's always a hard balancing act coming in as the new guy but you have to lead guys who have been here a while.

    Seems like he's very authoritative from what I read and that might not sit well with some of our entitled players. Could still be one of those things where it takes a few years to get used to.

    If it's anyone other than nurse, then I think you have to trade Lowry.

    IMO, it's good to have someone try to shake them up a bit. If they are not ready to admit that they don't know it all and they are not good enough with what they are doing now, then I'd rather see them get upset and get traded away. It took years for Casey to make Derozan understand that the 3 point shot is important. I'd rather try someone authoritative for a change.
