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.

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.

Every Celtics draft pick gets the nauseating questions about being with the historic Celtics and usually pulls off a half-hearted answer. Grant Williams listed off the dynamics of 3 different eras of Celtics teams and had a scouting report ready on his fellow Celtics rooks too.

Bol Bol still had a better draft than Manute in 1983

Again, with Feeley's influence, Bol declared his intention to play professionally with the NBA. Subsequently, Bol was drafted by the Los Angeles Clippers in the fifth round of the 1983 NBA draft (97th overall) after he had declared himself.

Clippers Coach Jim Lynam received a call about Bol from Coach Feeley, who he knew from coaching circles. "So, I said, 'Have you told anyone else about this?' " Lynam recalled. "Feeley said the only one in the NBA he had called was Frank Layden at Utah. He said Frank said he couldn't take another big guy like this. He already had Mark Eaton. I was the second guy Feeley had called. I told him he didn't have to call anyone else."[16]

After the June, 1983 draft, Lynam traveled to Cleveland and watched Manute play in pickup games. In speaking with Bol, through a fellow Sudanese player, Lynam learned that Manute had become hesitant about playing professionally because he did not know the language well enough to understand what his coaches were telling him to do.[16]

Lynam noted that, "One of the things everyone was looking at was his passport. His passport said he was 19 years old. His passport also said he was five feet two."

When Lynam asked Bol about the discrepancy with his real height and his passport height, he said that Bol explained that he had been sitting down when measured by Sudan officials.[16]

However, language and passport concerns were set aside when the NBA ruled that Bol had not been eligible for the draft and declared the pick invalid. Bol had not declared 45 days before the draft, as required.[17][13][11]
