SOP Show On FSD


The link to the program can be found here.

I found the show kind of surreal. It was almost like if the Church of Scientology owned a NBA franchise. Just a bunch of corporate fluff, with everyone saying absolutely the right and predictable thing, with a heavy dose of Gores-speak (Earn your way every day, Impactful, we've got to thrill our fans, etc.-well thrill them outside of actually winning games). It was like a Prisoner episode, 60 minutes of mostly saying absolutely nothing while talking, perfect for speaking to the public. Ok, The Prisoner was a lot cooler.

A couple of notes before I hit the "submit" button

1) I don't quite get some guy who wants to be a cross between a younger Hugh Hefner, the worst part of the Maloof brothers, Jerry Buss AND Donald Sterling actually got to be worth a couple of billion (his brother Alec is actually worth more). But he gets stuff done, he's got a pretty good exec team with a pretty good track record, so more props to him. If I wanted idiosyncratic and hypermodern, give me Cubes. Gores probably does know what he's doing here, and a lot of it is actually deflecting the talk away from the basketball teams.

2) Timing is everything. Had last year been this year, we'd be interviewing Jerry Sloan for the HC job. To my mind, there are like 4 guys, maybe 5 now who are elite coaches: Jackson, LB, Sloan, Pop and McMillian. Maybe it will work out for the best...LFrank is ok in my book, and he may well grow into the job.

3) Interesting how the marketable "core" consisted of Rodney, Monroe, JJ and BK. The latter two players' future isn't exactly assured. I'd like to think there's some tea leaves to be read, but maybe not. You have four vets who you couldn't even mention, and there was only one mention of Tayshaun during the program.
