It was long overdue.

I still don't see him as doing a horrible job here. I still think if Clifford stays, nothing changes.

Get Cho to take Clifford with him, don't settle for a retread like Mitch K just because he went to UNC. Why not go for someone like David Griffin? Putting friends in jobs is not good business.

Not gunna lie... I am worried at the direction this franchise might soon be taking. Jordan needs less "yes men" around him not more. And the only reason i see not firing Clifford is to not owe his remaining contract

How about Danny Ferry as the GM?

I hear you jfoster but we know that's not a good reason to retain him.

Gersson Rosas is an intriguing option that Woj mentioned. Though would he be interested in working for MJ? Left Dallas after a few months because of power struggle with Cuban

           I think  Clifford demanded who he wanted in trades . With Cho gone  Clifford loses that power .  I think Cho screwed the pooch last season  when he drafted Monk. Jordon and Mitchell had a close relationship for a few years now . Even now he wares MJs baseball number,. I think the slam dunk  and rising stars  contest  finally blew  MJs gasket. So he had had enough. Remember Cho drafted BIZ and MJ drafted Kemba. And Cho has had the reigns sense.

 

 

 We got some good pieces  but Clifford has to develop  the young ones. PROBLEM  Clifford has never tried to bring young talent along . I just hope Monk hasn't lost all his confidence

We've got to give Monk some meaningful minutes as the season winds down, especially if we completely fall out of it. I have no doubt he'd be further along than he is without Clifford. With Clifford, our young guys are never going to develop. It's so frustrating

On a day I should be elated, I just have dread for what's coming down the pipe.  I have zero faith in Charlotte upgrading from Cho, especially with the names being bandied about.  I'm just going to call MJ the master of puppets since that's all he wants working for him.

When we "fall out of it" the minutes are immediately meaningless. Nothing like watching young guys shine with absolutely nothing on the line. Boston, Utah and Philly have a great situation as their youth movement is getting experience and will do so in the playoffs in some intances.

I would have liked him playing the whole season but it seems this is the only way it's possible. Even then, I still don't trust Clifford to give me a lot of burn.

WIAN I totally disagree. Those minutes are very valuable for evaluation and getting some type of rhythm going with playing groups. With 10 of these guys under contract next season, it's like an extended training camp for new ideas also. 

 

 I remember way back when Dirk was young with the Dallas Mavericks, they got hot the year before they got really good playing those meaningless games at the end of a non playoff year. They took off right after that.

I would agree if there was a new regime on the sidelines and we were trying to build something. Cliff stated early in the season now is not the time for on job training. This Monk situation has been mismanaged to say the least and to throw him out there now with a second unit composed of upcoming FA would not be beneficial to his development in my opinion.

I'm really glad I'm not pathetic enough to sit around and troll spam a message board.... get banned and then make a new account a week later and start again.    I mean think about the sadness in that life.   Where ever your dad touches you, I hope you get better.
