Please let the #Pacers be dumb enough to let Frank Vogel walk. I would love to have him and Nate McMillan (if they shake up the entire staff) on our bench next season. http://www.cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-basketball/24536999/report-frank-vogel-coaching-for-his-job-after-pacers-slide

Mitch Albom calls out Tom Gores

3

This is a feel-good column about Joe Dumars, so maybe Albom just wants to deflect criticism onto somebody else. But this is pretty rough talk from a guy like Albom who isn't known for being negative. "Finally that new buyer, Tom Gores, arrived, and he has been, quite frankly, one long cringe. Outside of dancing, placing himself in the middle of spotlights, shoving Phil Jackson embarrassingly into the mix and insisting Mo Cheeks be fired after 50 games, what has he contributed? Dumars apparently warned Gores’ group early that you can’t treat an NBA team like a private equity investment — stripped, polished and sold off in five years. It requires a winning culture, an atmosphere that guides personnel. San Antonio has it. For a long time, Boston and the Lakers had it. And yes, Detroit had it. But you can’t create it from a mansion in L.A., you can’t do it by chasing glitzy names (heaven help us if Isiah Thomas returns to the front office), and you can’t do it by issuing public ultimatums — all of which Gores has done."

Rip won an NCAA championship with UCONN in 1999 and won the MOP. Miami sharpshooter Ray Allen was a Husky between '93-'96.

Good for Brandon Knight

12

We crapped on Brandon Knight quite a bit when he was a Piston, especially when he got left for dead on that DeAndre Jordan dunk, but here's a highlight of Knight, as a Buck, crossing up Greivis Vasquez and then dunking on Jonas Valanciunas. Good for him.

Josh Smith both taking and shirking responsibility for this season

"If you played the game, if you know X’s and O’s, it’s not all my fault," Smith said. "I’m not gonna say I’m perfect, by far, but I’m not the guy you can point the finger at. I’m a firm believer in you point one finger at one person, point three back at yourself." and "There’s a lot of young guys that don’t understand the importance of understanding your opponent, it’s still fun for them," Smith said. "What we have to understand is, it’s cool to have fun but look at the severity of the situation. Playing in the postseason is addictive. Being there six times, all you look forward to is that feeling, a feeling like no other." Chauncey's comments are interesting too
