So it's not a rumor anymore. It's not wishful thinking and it's not a few hopefuls like us at the Nation saying things so that fate takes it from there.
Jerry Sloan is out there. And he wants back.
With all due respect to VDN, if Jerry Sloan is out there, and as long as the Clippers have CP3 and BG, then he has to be the no-brainer, go-to man to replace VDN TODAY!!!
I mean, does he really, really, reeallyy wanna coach a Bobcats team with absolutely nothing to offer, not even the guarantee of winning the Anthony Davis sweepstakes? Would he really go to Orlando to a team that has more question marks than the Riddler's outfit?
With all the pieces we got, "unlimited resources" according to Olshey, shouldn't then Olshey be on the phone right about now just telling Coach Sloan "Welcome to our family, Mr. Sloan"? I mean damnit!!! CP3 and BG!!! Yes, Stockton and Malone revisited!!! A coach who emphasizes in tough physical defense and no whining??
I mean what is it? Back to VDN? Has he earned another chance? Maybe. But to not even try and pursue Sloan is a mistake.
