And I’m not saying he has been good throughout his career.
I think you’re reading but not digesting what I’m saying.
You say you don’t want the next Mike Brown with LeBron and can see JBB like that with Mobley, I get that. No one wants that.
But, again this is the biggest reason I’m a fan of him currently, do you also think it probably wouldn’t be the best idea in the world to get rid of a coach that all the young players, including Mobley, have bought into?
You can’t see why some of us think that may be a disaster waiting to happen?
Coaching hires are not a guarantee, especially with a fucking Dan Gilbert franchise.
Truly? I think it's way easier to can him early than late. It becomes almost impossible after they make the playoffs considering all the extenuating circumstances.
This is why, also, I've talked about taking a big swing in the trade market. Because the timeline has been sped up. And making a big swing becomes harder later. As the team improves our future picks become worth less.
As some of the other young guys approach the end of their rookie deals, they become worth less.
Its exciting to have a player who alters the course of a franchise this fast but it also means your timeline for building the team shrinks.
20 games. We'll come back in 20 games.
EDIT: Had the Cavs landed a rookie requiring way more time to develop? Then a good motivating coach is fine for a year or two. But...we got the best rookie in the draft and the most impactful defensive rookie I think I've ever seen.
Just changes expectations.
