Wanna Coach the Nets for a Day?

The Nets’ marketing department is at it again (and, after drawing less than 1500 people to the game last night, can you blame them?): “Have you always wanted to be a Head Coach and call the shots? Well, here’s your chance! One lucky winner and their guest will be brisked off to New Jersey to spend the day with the Nets. You’ll get to hang out at the team’s practice facility during the day, get full VIP access at the arena during that night’s game and get the chance to rub elbows with Head Coach Kiki Vandeweghe!”

    All that just to get two more people to attend the game?

    So you actually only get to watch practice, not actually “coach”. They should actually let a fan sit on the bench and actually run the team for at least a quarter or something. You really think they could do worse than Kiki?? I would press and run the whole time if I got the chance. Hell, why not?

    Can we just cut to the chase? This is all leading up to a “Play for the Nets for a Day” promo. If the Nets win with you on the team, you get a ten-day contract!

    Whoopi Goldberg just sued the marketing department.

    To answer your question, no, i would not like to coach the nets for a day. And who the fu(k would like to rub elbows with kiki? That’s just wrong.

    What if the winner turned out to be better than head coach, and actually help them win a game? Do they get to coach the whole year then? Maybe that should be their next PR stunt; “Wanna coach the Nets for a season?”
    Might even be an improvement..
