When you look at the number of coaches available and the remarkable job they have done coaching (and Coach Hollins) has done a decent job, where does he rank in terms of finding another job if fired.

I don't think a team in the league would hire him with back to back jobs. I just don't think he's that great of a head coach.

Maybe the Bobcats or Portland and I doubt that.

At least half of the teams in the East would hire him in a heartbeat if he was available today.

Hollins has the same idea of basketball as Detroit back in the old school days. Whether Detroit wants to go back to that time, with the Bad Boys, that is another question. But, Hollins would bring them back to those nostalgic days.

Personally, Hollins deserves Coach of the Conference, if not Coach Of The Year. He has had many obstacles to go through. He really has not had a Superstar team, just a team, with a few who has great potential to be a consistent star, Z-Bo and Marc have shined, but you say those names in the league, and most people will not recognize them, is what I will guess.

But, Hollins has put together a rag tag team, no one really thought would do anything this year even after last years playoff performance. He deserves our great appreciation for bringing the level of the team to a great playoff level while not spending like the Heat or Lakers.

the raptors announcers were saying the same thing basically. The Pistons won a championship with a bunch of B+ guys by getting them all to buy into the same system and all complement each other. They said all the players want to play in either New York, Miami, or LA - and nowhere else. The only way to win a championship is to do like with Detroit and San Antonio have done. The Grizzlies have done a perfect job of copying that template with building around Conley, Gay, Gasol, Mayo, and ZBO. No A+ players but all are B+ and a guy like Hollins is just the guy to bring it together. Similar to Popovich system where you bring in a guy like Stephen Jackson and he just fits right in. We bring in Arenas, Speights, ZBO, guys with tags like "lazy", "blackhole", "cancer", "lockerroom nightmare". And they fit right in to what Hollins is doing.

The Raptors announcers were talking about the Indiana Pacers. Wondering if they have enough B+ guys to go over the hump. George HIll, West, Hibbert, Granger, Paul George, Collision. And if Frank Vogel is the guy.
