Who Will Coach the Pistons?

For some reason, people in Detroit want Avery Johnson to steer their wobbly ship: “Former Pistons coach Doug Collins withdrew his name from consideration, which would appear to open the door for former Dallas Mavericks coach Avery Johnson…Johnson appears to be the front-runner to replace Michael Curry, who was suddenly fired Tuesday on the eve of the NBA’s free-agency period. Dumars has said he wants an experienced coach to lead the Pistons as he tries to shape the roster into an Eastern Conference contender.”

    Avery Johnson has the most irritating voice. Mark Jackson p!sses me off too. If I’m playing, having to hear them consistently I’d likely tune out after a month or so.

    Mark Jackson’s elaborate playbook:
    1.) Ball movement
    2.) Man movement
    3.) Mama, there goes a.) that man b.) iso Gordon for a terrible jumper

    I think they should hire me. How awesome would it be if Joe Dumars was just like, “Fu(k it, let’s hire that kid from SLAMonline.”

    johnson is the best coach. the only reason dallas’ stars hated him was because dirk can’t understand english and josh howard was too baked to run suicides

    this is genius i dont see why people aint juiced about this. avery is the man he’ll get them to play defense and take away the egos of ben and rip. he took dallas to the finals the only reason he was fired cos mark cuban can’t let anyone on his team get comfortable he’s moved everyone apart from dirk and josh.

    i, Chazz Michael Michaels the II (michael jackson fanatic… Beat It) will coach the Pistons! I will own the Pistons! I Will Be The Pistons!

    Is Jeff Van Gundy coaching anywhere? I think he will be a great candidate…

  • chintao

    ^ A week ago, I would have agreed; however now that ‘Sheed’s gone and Gunner Gordon has come to town, the squad no longer suits Van Gundy’s style.
