    Re: Windy: Offer to Shaw or Scott could come soon

    Lets get that contract in front of Shaw. Throw some MLE at Shannon Brown, who can help expedite the Triangle learning curve. Resign Shaq and Z (good components for the Triangle), along with that "other guy " and, call it an off-season...

    I would take Shannon Brown back for sure. He still has incredible athleticism and his game has improved by leaps and bounds since he left Cleveland. He would be our starting 2-guard for sure.

    Re: Windy: Offer to Shaw or Scott could come soon

    I agree that Gilbert is being the aggressor in the HC search which leads to my suspicion that there may be ambivalence about Scott. It seems to me that since they've already met with him 2-3 times, Gilbert would've went after him with a contract by now. Even if Scott was hedging about the possibility of Phil leaving, Gilbert would've upped the ante. The fact that he didn't move aggressively in offering a contract leads me to believe that Scott may be viewed as a solid fall-back option but they're not in love with him.

    Shannon Brown is still horrible.. He takes questionable shots and even with the athleticism, he is not a very good defender..

    Re: Windy: Offer to Shaw or Scott could come soon

    The triangle should not be factor regarding whether Brian Shaw should get the job. It's not like it is the best offensive system in league and there is reason why only Phil Jackson teams have been successful with it.

    Shannon Brown was never horrible. The way he was underutilized, and the length of the leash that Mike Brown kept him on were. Any shot taken by someone not named Kobe could be deemed questionable. Shannon plays like a Man. Runs the fast break and finishes at the rim like a Man.

    samickFanHouse: Cavs coaching search is nearing an end, sources say, with Brian Shaw scheduled to meet in Cleveland this afternoon and tomorrow morning.

    samickFanHouse: No offers have been made to Shaw or Byron Scott, with a decision expected before Thursday.

    From what I've been told, Lebron believes that as well.

    Re: Windy: Offer to Shaw or Scott could come soon

    Who do you prefer between Shaw and Scott? I am starting to lean with Scott. While both have simular playing history, ie multiple champioships as a player (although scott was the much better player)...Shaw's coaching history also yileded championships as a top assistant while Scott as a HC got his team twice to the finals. I think both would be very good hires (people are under estimating the significance of both coaches expecting that Phil would come here :rolleyes:)...but i am leaning towards Shaw at this time. Maybe its the excitement of the unknown. But young coaches can do well right away if they are good coaches. Phil Jackson is proof you dont need to coach for 10 years before winning a championship if you have the correct experience before becoming a head coach and you have enough talent on the team you take over.

    Re: Windy: Offer to Shaw or Scott could come soon

    I'm not afraid to say I don't know. I would really like the lowdown on some of the stories that have been around Scott over the years and why he tends to burn out quickly with some players. After being told all the things Paul Silas did and said when he was here I've learned that reputations are not always true.

    One could say logic dictates that if James returns the experienced coach is the way to go. Regardless of pedigree you just never know about an assistant until he slides over to the big chair.

    Re: Windy: Offer to Shaw or Scott could come soon

    I trust Gilbert and Grant will pick whomever is the most qualified and interviews better. I'm sure they lay out a map and say who are your assistants gonna be if you get the job. How do you utilize our guys on offense? How do you cover up defensive deficiencies?

    Bottom line, I don't stand to lose hundreds of millions. I trust whomever Gilbert and Company hires since he's the one who stands to lose it.

    Re: Windy: Offer to Shaw or Scott could come soon

    Which is why I prefer Scott. Previous experience. Generally coaches improve over previous stops. Just like the NFL head coaching state about how much coaches improve with their 2nd and 3rd stops. Learn

    This would be Shaw's first HC job, EVER.

    I think the Cavs hire whoever accepts our offer first or whomever isn't the Lakers coach.

    If Phillip comes back, great scott!!

    Re: Windy: Offer to Shaw or Scott could come soon

    My honest reason for wanting Scott over Shaq isn't head coaching experience, it's honestly that glowing review that Chris Paul has undoubtedly given to LeBron about how great Byron Scott is. There's a chance that could give us a legitimate edge in the coaching department as far as keeping LBJ goes.

    Re: Windy: Offer to Shaw or Scott could come soon

    Interesting info. I had thought Lebron thinks Cavs doesn't have enough talent to win it all, that's why he wants to leave.

    Re: Windy: Offer to Shaw or Scott could come soon

    He didn't/doesn't think that at all. Besides, who says he wants to leave? I think he wants to stay and would only be swayed by a team who has to totally blow him away with a presentation. I don't see that happening.

    I believe the bottom line is that either Scott or Shaw would be a good fit. I don't really think LeBron would have a preference and would think both would be good. I still think Scott will be offered the job by Thursday and will accept it immediately, no matter if Jackson has decided or not.

    LeBron would be ridiculously stupid to think that way. We will not win 60+ plus games back to back with mediocre talent. It is only the media that makes up crap like that.
