Detroit better run away.  

The FVV rumors were before Weaver came on board.   Hopefully he has different ideas and doesn't want him.

remember that when the kings say they have to fire employees because revenues are down.  which they surely will.

they can hire a guy to be "chief strategy officer"?  what is that?  why even have a general manager?

i mean, good for joe dumars living off stupid rich people giving him cash, but sheesh.

Speaking based upon how it works in most businesses, the CSO would have a very different role than the GM.  The GM is very much an execution oriented role.  He goes out and makes the phone calls and does the deals.  The CSO is responsible for coordinating the strategy across all functions - not just player related.  Things like where/how the company markets themselves, demographics they go after for sales, overall image they are shooting for, and maybe even how all of that combines with the types of players they go after.  He will decide the strategy for the entire Kings brand.  He makes the 5 year plan and make's sure each department is setting their goals and initiatives to coincide with that overall direction.  It can be a pretty powerful position that reaches into every part of an organization.

But, in the King's org with Joe at the helm, it's sure to be a train wreck.

Vivek Ranadive wanted to play 4-on-5 defense and let the 5th guy cherry-pick the entire game.  Hiring an unqualified Dumars probably isn't even in the top 5 dumb things he did before lunch today.

Its 2020.  Qualifications have long been tossed out the window.

Wasn't Joe Dumars also president of the Pistons? Wouldn't some of that have been part of his role for the Pistons?

He was only president of basketball operations.  Tom Wilson was the president of the Pistons for most of the time Dumars was there.

He was only responsible for running the roster.  He wasn't in charge of marketing, ticket sales, entertainment, etc etc.

Bulls hire Billy Donovan.

PHEW!  I was worried they were going to hire someone who could actually coach.

this may be the only time i root for the nation.  go get him nation!  get gores out of the league!

Pretty disgusting. I remember an old adage to the effect that behind every great fortune there is some great sin. Sounds like it must fit the bill for Gores.

I love this:

 

What I find fascinating is not that this change happened, but that the 3pt shot had already existed for 30 yrs before it did. It just goes to show that sports coaches and managements are apparently not the smartest people. It pretty much took until the whole generation of previous players and coaches and their conventional wisdoms vacated the scene for teams to finally start playing to the optimum efficiency of 40 yr old rules.
