    Are you all sure?

    Are you sure it will be Hoiberg? Perhaps it was a smokescreen to get us leaning and in comes Gillespie from the other side. I can't understand why Fred with NO coaching experience is JP's choice given the fact that this is JP's last shot to get it right. I would bet on a true therobred like Gillespie even though he brings some "former" baggage. We need to recruit and win NOW, not a feel good story for us to suck on . IF Hoiberg's the best choice JP can come up with, then the taxis waiting to take JP to the airport. I am NOT convinced this is a done deal yet.

    Re: Are you all sure?

    well if bg was hired there would be a lot of complaints as well... no way everyone will agree on anything, ever... hoiberg is awesome, great player in college, nba, great family man, good looking, young... i love it, and im excited, and thats all i ever want to be when it comes to sports, is excited.. now if we suck for 4 more years then i will be unexcited, and ready for something new again... but for now, im pumped..

    What a clown. It's too bad we couldn't find someone up to your expectations. Phil Jackson may come on the market before too long...we should have waited!

    As usual Pollard let out a smokescreen to get us of course while the finishing touches went on, all of JP's hires have gone that way, I just didnt expect it so soon though.
