    Re: Seth Davis on DP show

    I don't know Fred but I think the logical leaps of "Your ego is going to make you want to try and do it against the best" is pretty unfounded. Why didn't Bobby Knight ever go to the NBA? Jim Calhoun? Dean Smith? John Wooden? Or why hasn't Coach K, Boehim, Roy Williams, Bill Self, Billy Donovan(he only left for a few days before nixing the deal), or Izzo gone to the NBA?

    Those are some of the most successful coaches of the last 10-15 years or more, and none of them have ever coached in the NBA as a head coach. Why hasn't there ego said lets do this against the best?

    Exactly. The T-Wolves are thought of as a choice because of his previous relationship, but why the hell would he go there?
    They will most likely lose Love to a contender soon. They aren't in a location all of the free agents will flock to. The only chance they have to be good is to get lucky with multiple drafts in a row and overpay for free agents.

    Fred's a good coach, but in the NBA it's so much more about what talent you can bring in. Fred would end up getting canned in a few years because of that.

    It really drives them nuts when ISU is desirable.

    Re: Seth Davis on DP show

    Instead of NBA talk, I am declaring this thread to be all about useless guys named Seth. In which case, Bald Useless Seth and Stephen A. took UConn, Skip took us, says from covering Fred in the NBA he thinks he is an offensive genius and will find a way and DeAndre will be better than Napier.

    I can't stand Seth Davis, but this wasn't trolling.

    he was asked specifically about it by Chris Mannix (guest hosting) who is an NBA guys. Neither Davis nor Mannix said Hoiberg would leave, in fact they specifically discussed how hard it would be to leave Ames. They both said the same thing: An NBA GM's first call would be to Hoiberg. We already knew that.

    There wasn't anything negative or trolling about the interview at all.

    Agreed. Just because someone is a toolbox doesn't make them a troll. Doug Gottlieb, on the other hand, trolls this fan base.

    Re: Seth Davis on DP show

    I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that most Iowans on this board could make more $$ and advance their careers farther in a bigger market. So why is it unbelievable when a coach decides to stay too?

    Hope the Zen Master doesn't find Fred while in NYC and his kids don't fall in love with the city.

    Coach K, Roy Williams, Donovan and Izzo all have been extremely close to leaving for the league at some point in their career, and none of them have the NBA playing or front office background that Fred has. So it is a very real temptation. Doesn't necessarily mean he will leave though.
