re: Alvin Gentry is interviewing for a second time - adono
I'm confident Loomis won't let the Gentry hire take place. Monty wasn't fired in order to bring in a proven loser. It's kinda funny Gentry's name is actually on the list. If they screw up this hire, it may create disastrous short and long term results. It won't create an ounce of excitement with ...

[quote]Not surprised demps would rather hired a fellow African American tho JVG is better[/quote] I don't think that's really in play. It's more that Demps knows he'll retain control with gentry on board...even if that only last 1 or 2 seasons before they're both shown the door. If Loomis has ...

re: Alvin Gentry is interviewing for a second time - adono
[quote]Pair him with a good defensive assistant and thats a huge step up from Monty[/quote] One question: Why didn't Gentry figure that formula out in his previous 12 seasons as HC? Hire Gentry and watch the losing records come in like sumo wrestlers at an All You Can Eat sushi bar. ...

re: Bulls Fire Thibs - adono
[quote]potential replacement pool is deep this off season.[/quote] The pool became deeper because the Pels are in the market. As others have pointed out, JVG has been romanced before and never went to the altar. We are seeing the positive affects of having AD and the dividends will get bigger goi...

The Chapman Stick...have you seen one? - adono
I've been playing forever and never knew this thing existed. I have a hard time playing a 6 stringer as it is; I can't imagine the dedication it takes to plays the Stick. Here a video: [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCXjEIQANes)]LINK[/link]...

re: Bulls to let all job openings fill before firing Thibs - adono
Assuming Thibs will be back on the table, this appears to be a 3 man race: Thibs, JVG and Gentry. The weakest link is Gentry with 1 winning season in 12 years as a HC. As for Thibs and JVG, there isn't a whole lot of difference between them: defense first, very out front personality and roughly ...

Is Paul Rogers the greatest R&R singer of all time? - adono
Watched a documentary on Bad Company yesterday and I was a little surprised to see a bunch of folks interviewed who said Rogers was the greatest of all time; John Mellencamp and a number of Rolling Stone writers proclaimed this. I've like Rogers all the way back to his days with Free (that bluesy...
