    I been checking and hoping for a big move that would improve the team everyday. Today I decided to check up on some NBA History for some more perspective. Take it how you want it but this is just shortened version of what I found.

    First -The Blazers got Drexler in 83-84 and added pieces (Porter, Kersey, and Duckworth) for 6 years before adding (Buck, Cliff, Mark, Wayne and Drazen) to the mix and making it to the 89-90 NBA Finals. Oh Yeah, they also changed Coaches and got Rick Adelman. hm?....Then after the transition in 95-96 with a New Arena it was another 4 years before that teamed gel-ed enough to make it to the Western Conference Finals. Oh and that was also caped off with a new Head Coach Mike Dunleavy . hmm?

    Second - The Bulls got MJ in 84-85 and wasn't able to reach 50 wins until 87-88 and didn't make it to the Finals until 90-91. But that was also after adding a well supportive cast, oh and lets not forget a new Head Coach Phil Jackson which would lead to repeat three-peats. hmmm?

    Last - Of course the Lakers have always been good more times than not. But they didn't prove dominant again until 99-00 which is 4 years after acquiring Shaq and Kobe. Oh yeah that was also the year they hired a new Head Coach maybe you heard of him, his name is Phil Jackson. Who just might get his 4th three-peat or 12 Championship in 20 years....HMMMM?

    Anyways I just think history shows that teams need more than just 1 or 2 years playing together before you can expect anything great. Unless you manage to put together a team of All Stars (Boston 07-08) (Miami maybe 10-11) it won't happen the 1st year. They say we have all the money and an owner that is all about winning. Sure we can talk the talk I just don't think we have the guts to walk the walk. So if we were to change anything maybe we should get a New Head Coach, because if history three-peats itself then I think we would be better.

    Whenever I hear people mentioning a coaching change, I always ask, find me someone else available to replace him? Honestly, I wouldn't take Del Negro, Byron Scott, Mike Brown, or any of the other coaching who either are currently available or who just accepted new positions this season.

    I just want to say that unless it is for an all star then we should not be so quick to make any changes to the team and just be patient enough to see what Nate can do with what we have.

    repost my uncivilised response from the other thread to this one please. We don't need to change our coach, we need to change some fans.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
