    Default McMillan fired. GET HIM!

    ASAP. This is our guy imho. The guy did wonders in Portland (until this last slide) in spite of loosing 2 future superstars. Injuries plagued the team and he had them playing well and winning. Advancing in the playoffs was just impossible for such a depleted roster.

    Anyways. Do you guys like him?

    If things don't work out with Woodson we can go for Phil Jackson in a few months. I don't see the point unless we get him as an assistant.

    No! He cant handle the personalities on the blazers now, how would he handle melo, amare? Hes just like Dantoni, passive and not stern. Plus hes got no hardware to command respect.

    Well, the only coach available with the hardware to command respect is Phil Jackson (discounting Larry Brown for obvious reasons), who obviously anyone would take for any amount of money any day of the week. This is all supposing he's not interested (sadly, the most likely scenario).

    I'm hoping Woodson can suceed because I'm tired of the team making moves each season. If he doesn't do well then my choices are Jax or JVG.

    We need to give Woodson a chance.

    If we bring ANYONE new, Dolan might as well go all out and bring Phil.

    Screw McMillan did you not see what that Blazer team is like? They have plenty of talent themselves.

    Any coach that lets a stacked roster like Portland with Felton, Batum, Camby, Aldridge, Wallace, Wesley Matthews all not on the same page reminds me too much on Mike Dantoni

    Forget it.

    Mike Woodson for now and if not Woodson then Phil Jackson.

    Plain and simple no. We need a coach that's proven and that has coached stars. So he would be able to deal with all that comes with the territory. Honestly ride it out with Woodson and look real hard in the off season.
