    Yup, we're doomed, might as well give up now and just release Fred from his contract. Would probably make the process easier for all of us. We should probably go ahead and fire CPR too, since he'll leave someday as well.

    Their coach is good enough to be an NBA coach is always a valid recruiting tool. OP=dumb

    I don't think Self needs to go to the "Their coach may leave for the NBA at any time" card.

    He probably just shows recruits a bunch of rings and banners and such.

    Went through the Top 100 things I should or do worry about and Fred and the NBA are not on the list at all.

    Pretty sure those coaches hold a lot of respect for one another, unlike the fans of those respected teams.

    Brad Stevens = a skinnier, more choke-able P.J. Carlisimo type. Zero street cred outside of Maplewood subdivision in suburban Indianapolis. Terrible hire....what is Boston thinking?!?!?!?
    I bet he gets choked before two years are out.....one year if George Zimmerman is not found guilty. I predict he gets fired within two years.

    I understand your point, but I personally think it crosses a line to call a guy more choke-able. And really not sure what George Zimmerman has to do with it. Really strange post.
