For context, George Karl was famously the coach of the Sonics for most of the 90s. Looks like he didn't take very kindly to what Mark Jackson said and decided to unleash. Obviously he's referencing Jackson's tenure as head coach of the Warriors and their breakout when he was replaced with Steve Kerr.
I think these are the moves we want to see as fans of the league. The rookies they brought in did much better than their record reflects and with some more time together I think they can be really strong!
Pop has never strayed from his stance on Trump, and made it known yet again today...
(Via Eric Woodyard) Spurs coach Gregg Popovich calls President Trump “racist” when discussing the impact of local politics. “Obviously, nothing’s happening from the top. We have a president who is obviously racist by any measure so the local grassroots, politicians have to take the lead."
I believe there are some folks that need to hear things like this from Popovich. It may not be right that a white male needs to say these things to get through to some, but it’s a hard truth.
"CLG is parting ways with Coach Ssong and Coach Weldon.
We thank both for their leadership and dedication to CLG. We wish them the best in their future ventures."
After a disappointing split, CLG is parting ways with Coach Ssong and Coach Weldon. Thoughts?

This is a pretty serious allegation, especially right after Griffin's first win as a head coach vs the 76ers yesterday.
For people saying its just because of yesterday there are multiple tweets on here profile going back to May-June discussing similar issues

Hi all -- my girlfriend and I will be taking a trip in the spring (covid permitting) and have been discussing travel options to get there. I work in finance, while she works in a research lab. I told her I would purchase her ticket for her, and she was really grateful. However, problems would soon arise... I have enough money to book myself a first class ticket, and as I work 70-80 hour weeks, so I think I deserve the luxury. I told her I don't really want to spend the money on two first class tickets. I would be flying in first class, and could book her on the same flight, but she would be in coach. She found the suggestion extremely unfair and called me an asshole. Well, am I?
I’m going to be kind of vague in this post for privacy reasons, hope you can understand. I (18F) am a freshman at college right now. My stepsister (16F) is a junior in high school. We both did the same extracurricular in highschool.
I was the team president senior & junior year, and I spearheaded a lot of the new policies that allowed our team to develop into a nationally competitive school. Under this extracurricular are many different events, in event A I was nationally successful, and in event B I was internationally successful. I was scouted by HYPMS schools for Event B.
Event A is more popular in the US than Event B, and because I have a good reputation in the community, I privately coach people in Event A for $60/hr. This might seem excessive, but it’s an exhausting gig. I’m also incredibly busy, since I’m a college freshman and I’m also still competing for my college in Event B.
Since my school’s coach and I have a great relationship, I’ve been invited to work as an as... keep reading on reddit ➡
It sounds like a lot of coaches are getting into this together and this is great to see from them and the NBA
I saw this twitter thread of nofe detailing how Rox Tigers came up with the MF support pick used in the famous 2016 semifinals series against SKT and thought it was really interesting. I love hearing these types of backstories.
> “For whatever reason, I don’t have an answer, but I don’t think we started the game with a great competitive spirit,” Redick said. “We’ve had a couple games like that down here, for whatever reason.”
> The day started with such promise for the Pelicans. On Saturday, team owner Gayle Benson shipped crates of “New Orleans food” to the hotel for a feast. Red fish. Shrimp. Gumbo. Jambalaya. Salad. Cakes from Gambino’s bakery. Gentry told me the food was so good that Kings coach Luke Walton came over to be fed.
> “These cakes, it’s just ridiculous,” Gentry said. “Nothing that tastes that good can ever be good for you.”
While I'm sad to see his journey as a player end. I'm excited to see what he can bring as a coach. What do you guys think and what is your favorite "Kold" play he did?
When I was in high school I was on the tennis team, and our varsity coach was a SAINT. The JV coach, however regularly made us wonder if she'd been dropped on her head as a child. To boot, she barely understood anything about tennis, so all the poor junior varsity kids got taught how to grip their racquets wrong and hit wrong, and us varsity kids would reteach them when she wasn't looking. (it was a small town, so the whole tennis team was maybe 30 kids).
On varsity our coach would set up cones around the court for us to try to hit when we were serving, so we could improve our aim. If you hit one, then coach owed you a snowcone from the local stand in town. The cones were famous around town and everyone loved them, nothing tasted better after a long practice in the heat. The JV coach, once again making us question her mental capacity, told the JV kids that if they hit HER then she'd buy them a snowcone. I really don't know how hitting her, which would be out of bounds, was a good way... keep reading on reddit ➡
