First of all, Sam Mitchell is staying put and that opens up the gates for several other positions around the league. Van Gundy is out in Houston and reports are that Rick Adelman is set to be the next coach of the Rockets. Yes, I am jealous.
Never a self-promoter or one to demand players he must or must not have, he merely manages (never over-coaches) the personnel on tap and gets them to the playoffs - 14 out of 14 times as coach of Portland and Sacramento.
One Van Gundy on the outs and another on the way in. Stan Van Gundy is the favorite for replacing Rick Carlisle in Indiana. In the meantime, the Celtics still have Doc Rivers (102-144) as our coach. His win totals have gone down each year he was here. I am afraid that next season we will end up with 10 wins.
I'm jealous too. Oh man, Rick Adelman is perfect for boston. Good character and can teach youngs. Furthermore, he can coach, set a rotation and lead a running team. Oh my god, Adelman should be in Boston now...
With all the coaches available, there are several who would be good for Boston. I have thought Adelman would be good here for some time and hoped that he would still be around when Danny finally realized that Doc can't coach. Stan Van Gundy will be gone also. Iavaroni would be good but I imagine he will be gone too. Now I am hoping that Carlisle will still be available.
