Up Tempo Coach?

By mbmurr1 Posted in: Blazers
I think we need an up tempo, wide open, fast break style, offensive minded head coach. I think team defense needs to improve this year as well. I'm so impatient to see who is chosen for the coaching position, I can't wait to see what happens over the next week. What are your thoughts?

  1. Terry Stotts is Offensive Specialist
    Elton Turner is Defensive minded.
    Were gonna have to choose lol

  2. Hard to choose as all of those 4 are basically unproven> It looks like our faiths belong to Allen & Olshey intuition.

  3. If it boils down to two choices perhaps look to hire Turner as long as he will let the team play wide open, full speed offense. But if three names are still in the hat I think we should go with the 3rd choice Canales and look to hire capable assistants.

  4. We don't need a D'Antoni type coach..we need the best bench in the NBA and a coach that spreads the minutes out to fresh legs. So far Kaleb has shown that tendency. Lillard is a pick and roll point guard and Aldridge is a pick and roll PF. We need defense and rebounding with few turnovers and we'll be fine

  5. I think we will be fine on rebounding this year since we have at least 4 big man. We just need Kaleb back who just need to improve on defense side, then we just need to hire Phil Jackson as a president. I think our starting 5 of Damian, Wes, Batum, LA, and Meyers will be a good solid lineup. And then we waive JARED and Babbitt if he doesn't do well this year.
