Yeah, if the Celtics are dumb enough to dump Brad Stevens then we should throw whatever we can at him. He is biggest strength is getting a lot out of a little. He’d be excellent for our trade & rebuild phase.

Is there a realistic chance that they fire him?
You can’t rule it out (but I think it’s unlikely).

I think of Danny Ferry’s final coaching hire as GM of the Hawks, he hired that Mike Budenholzer guy who is now with the Bucks. He was a retread, but Atlanta had no reason to fire him. If Stevens met that same fate I would be at peace with us backing up the Brinks truck for him.

Evidently,
There is a struggle going on between LeBron, the self appointed GM and Magic Johnson, the actual GM.

It’s a big test for Magic. Imo, Magic needs to let LeBron know that Magic is in charge

This is what you sign on for when you get Lebron.

One of the greatest to ever play but with it comes an impatient ego and an ever growing need for organizational control(that is going to jeopardize your job security and reputation) that is coupled with poor decision-making and when things crash an inability to take responsibility for the damage you caused.

Things are trending in a way that I realistically could see the Lakers striking out this off-season and things getting really ugly in LA.

It's a good thing for Magic that LeBron never really ingratiated himself with with the Laker fan base. Magic might...might...survive this. He'd better work on his inner Pat Reilly. Personally, I hope it's a multi-car pile up and the Laker organization, Rich Paul, and his boss, LeBron all take a serious long term hit on their legacies. I do feel bad for Luke Walton and the younger players. It's a horrible environment for young talent to develop.

That was an absolutely disgusting end to a game. If that don't prove Gentry needs to go, then I don't know what does.

So wait. Gentry actually pulled Davis in the last second of regulation and played him zero minutes of overtime? And still won? Brilliant!!!
