First of all, it's great to see the board in full meltdown mode. Every thread on the first page is new
So that's my beef. Pro-Monty guys, why exactly is Monty considered such a good coach in the NBA?
I've said before I think Monty needs to find his Tex Winter if he's going to stay long term. I've never said Monty is blameless in the losses, just that now is not the time to bring out the torches and pitch forks. The only thing to care about this season are things that affect future seasons. Even if you felt you had definitive proof that Monty never will be what this team needs, now is not the time to do anything about it. This team won't be able to land the top coaching candidates until the roster is ready to make the playoffs.
I'm much more concerned about Demps proving he belongs than Monty. As AD grows Monty will be easy to move on from if that's necessary. If Demps screws things up that will be much harder to recover from. This will be the first time Demps gets to make big decisions, both with cap space and with having to actually pick the 1 player out of 4 similar ones that will boom rather than bust or just be adequate.
