Vlade Divac is pushing to consolidate his power as Kings top basketball executive, seriously weighing dismissal of coach Dave Joerger, league sources tell ESPN. Divac/Joerger set for meeting today. Joerger led Kings young core to a 39 win season. He has a year left on deal.

Wolves suddenly seem to have put Ryan Saunders deal on pause.... want Joerger so bad....

Joerger did do some head-butting in Memphis iirc so I wonder if Vlade's maybe not quite 100% to blame for the failure of their interpersonal dynamic.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Thursday, 11 April 2019 18:11 (four months ago) link

i do wonder about joerger. apparently he has beef with young players. he may hate the wolves if thats the case.

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Thursday, 11 April 2019 18:20 (four months ago) link

joeger seems like a pain in the ass, but he can coach

call all destroyer, Thursday, 11 April 2019 18:21 (four months ago) link

maybe he's Scott Skiles 2.0, a guy who can deliver some on-court results but quickly wears out his welcome.

was thinking the same, doesnt seem like the right guy for the wolves moody millennials

The Grizzlies dismissed coach J.B. Bickerstaff and reassigned GM Chris Wallace to a scouting capacity in the front office, league sources tell ESPN. VP John Hollinger will also move into a senior advisory role.

one of the whiteboy youtube basketball celebs might actually be good

High-level Hoop Summit game with a monster showing from Nico Mannion. He was tremendous all week in practice also. Excellent blend of scoring instincts, passing feel, toughness at 6'3. Game comes easy to him. Have been really impressed with him at every stop since the U16 Euros. pic.twitter.com/DMDgE3akN2

who the fuck is Royce White ?

(•̪●) (carne asada), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 20:30 (three days ago) link

Golden Gopher great

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 20:34 (three days ago) link

that doesn't answer the question

EZ Snappin, Tuesday, 20 August 2019 20:36 (three days ago) link

Royce White: one of the great MN prep ballers ever, went to the U of M with Tubby Smith, was weird and then stole a laptop from a dorm room. then went to Iowa State had one great session under Fred "The Mayor" Hoiberg, ended up on the Rockets (?) I think but then said he was afraid of flying and wanted to take buses to games, don't know where he's at now

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 20:40 (three days ago) link

really weird he was never a Wolf because he had that weirdo Wolves draft pick energy

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 20:41 (three days ago) link

he plays in the big 3 now. yeah says he had major anxiety about flying so would only bus and i dont think he ever played an NBA minute

big city slam (Spottie), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 20:41 (three days ago) link

he was the #1 overall pick in the Big 3!

jakey mo collier (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 20:43 (three days ago) link

honestly probably a big reason Hoiberg ever got a look as an NBA coach

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 20:43 (three days ago) link

White was a "bust" but because he was so open about his anxiety disorder there were a bunch of think-pieces when he was drafted that probably had some role in paving the way for other players with mental health issues to come forward in recent years - Kevin Love, DeRozan.

haha so this guy had words about Melo being blackballed or something and it blew up ? yeah talk about slow news day

I remember being really high on him and thought he’d fit right into the modern NBA as a point forward type

k3vin k., Tuesday, 20 August 2019 21:40 (three days ago) link

Yeah he is a cool player

big city slam (Spottie), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 22:37 (three days ago) link

those clippers schedule things are cool

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 22:50 (three days ago) link

it wasn't that long ago but feels like royce white would have stood a better chance as a 2019 draftee than a 2012 one.

the one year at Iowa State he balled like crazy

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 00:04 (two days ago) link

i feel like the "can't fly on airplanes" thing was going to be a hurdle no matter the year...

yeah not sure if that’s wise. he’s at his best in the sprawling aimlessness of talk radio and hot take shows.

Carisis LaVerted (m bison), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 16:42 (two days ago) link

hes done plenty of nba work i dont think it will be a big deal. he worked the finals this year iirc.

big city slam (Spottie), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 16:45 (two days ago) link

i imagine he's been encouraged and empowered to out-barkley barkley so there should be a lot more manufactured beef with him and players in 2020

You have to fly on planes in the NBA

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:04 (sixteen hours ago) link

i'm aware. did you know sometimes people with anxiety actually get treatment and are eventually able to do things like fly?

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:08 (sixteen hours ago) link

flying isn't real

ciderpress, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:23 (sixteen hours ago) link

My recollection is that Royce white refused to take medication for anxiety

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:47 (fifteen hours ago) link

In general he made the situation totally impossible.

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:49 (fifteen hours ago) link

you might be right. like i said i don't remember the details. my point was just that since there seems to be a deeper sensitivity around mental health issues with players in 2019 (for example the commissioner is out there talking about it), he would have stood a better chance today than he did 7 years ago.

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:50 (fifteen hours ago) link

I honestly think his rookie contract was enough for him

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:53 (fifteen hours ago) link
