    Great in the regular season, chokes in the playoffs. Guess that's a step up for the Kings, though.

    The Kings owner is batshit crazy. He'll run Karl out before long

    he knows what he's getting into, i'm sure he's gonna agree to all that stuff before he is hired, he'll probably modify what the owner wants to do and make it work a little better

    A good point A to point B coach with B being respectability/getting into playoffs. From B to C with C being a championship...no. Although those Payton/Kemp teams were pretty good. Like Stockton/Malone they had the bad luck to run into Jordan's Bulls during their run.

    Didn't he retire for health reasons like 4 years ago?

    Is he like an 80 year old Urban Meyer style come back story?

    Maybe he can sign his out of work kid for a bench slot...

    Sacramento ownership make Donald Sterling look like Jerry Buss, I don't know why Karl would do this to himself unless he gets to hand the team off to his kid after a year or something.

    Is it still the Maloofs or did that empire implode a few years ago?

    I am assuming there is something to it, given that he is coming out of retirement to coach a limited team.

    It imploded. They were going to Seattle until Kevin Johnson and his shit wife got involved and got the league to make them stay. The current owner wants them to play a snowbird style where they leave one person downcourt at all times to get easy layups. Don;t worry about the 4 on 5 defensive situation

    Loved watching the Dream play. Why didn't Rudy T ever coach after the Rockets?

    Pity. Just read he coached the Lakers for half a year before quitting because he couldn't handle the stress. I don't even remember that.
