Radio appearance

So I just learned about this, but I'm going to be on Shan Shariff's ESPN 1240 Delmarva show at 5:20 today talking about the Flip Saunders hire.  I can't find a listen live button, but I'll try to...

Michael Wilbon argues against the Flip hire

It's a really good column; probably his best effort in years, to be honest. It certainly made me pause. I just wonder whether his mythical perfect coach is in fact Avery Johnson, like he claims. The line between Avery and Terry Porter seems remarkably thin. It's why I'm such a big fan of the Sam Cassell AC hiring; Cassell does everything Avery would do, except with far less risk. Yet Wilbon dismisses it offhand, since he's not the head coach. The title, to me, seems far less important than Wilbon makes it out to me. Then again, one area Wilbon clearly has an advantage over me is assessing locker room dynamics. Neither of us are perfect, but he's got better contacts and access to make educated guesses.

Michael Lee reminds us that Flip isn't a done deal yet

And he apparently will cost slightly less than five million annually. Yeesh.
