Good for The Wiz. The league can only get better if more teams work like the Spurs and learn from that school. See: OKC

i think it's a matter of the personnel and the organization. Ferry didn't do a good job in Cleveland in my opinion (neither did Mike Brown without Lebron bailing him out on offense). Ferry brought in Mo Williams and Shaq, two guys who didn't fit with Lebron. the team was very slow, very one dimensional with the guys he brought in.

i personally don't think much of Ferry's management skills. Sam Presti, on the other hand, was a guy who went scouting and made decisions based on the team, not on the players.

Danny Did the best job possible given the situation. You had a petulant superstar who everybody knew wanted to move to a big market team. They had limited resources and he still managed to make move after move to get "lebron help". He got the best available help at the time. He was given a beer budget and tried to deliver on Lebrons Champaign dreams. They won 66 and 61 games is it his fault that the player choked? That the Coach never developed into a coach with balls? Sam Presti's biggest move? He has a superstar who didn't sandbag him, acted like a man, and STAYED withe the team. LOL

If this is a 'promotion' for Ferry, good for him. But I have to add one little caveat in parting -- please don't take any of the Spurs management with you; try growing your own.

agreed. we're also overhyped at times imo, just because it's a Spur or someone with a Spur type mentality (i.e. Kerr). as much as you want someone from a respected organization, it's better to build your own identity. trying to make a team identical to the Spurs can be damning if the situation doesn't present itself beneficial with those pieces (Cleveland/right now, the Lakers)

Yes sir. There are no sequels in this game, only originals. And the Spurs organization is considered one of the best, if not the best, franchise running regardless of what sport it may be. Hallelujah. Go Spurs!!

Presti blew up the team and could afford to lose while the team drafted more talent and young rookies grew up together.

With Lebron the clock was ticking from day 1 to win now or he would leave. And Lebron was good enough to where they couldn't gut the team and guarantee themselves good lottery picks. With Lebron alone the first year-- think of that! an 18 year old rookie-- they were about at .500.

Exactly. Problem was Lebron.

I think it's both. Lebron was both the reason they were a contending playoff team and the problem at the root of the franchise preventing them from being an OKC-type potential dynasty.

agreed. it also didn't help that the coach kept running isolation plays for Lebron. at the same time, Ferry didn't give Brown anyone else to run other players with.

They had plenty of talent come through there. They had all star Mo Williams, they had Shaq, etc. They would have had Boozer if he weren't a weasel. I don't fault Ferry for that. I think Mike Brown is just not a good head coach. That's a case where being a Popovich disciple got him a job he wasn't qualified for.

Let's be realistic, one man cannot win 60+ games on his own. He had help. Michael Jordan was at .500 until Pippen showed up. The coach had no idea what he was doing.

Many might not be old enough to remember, but Ferry's father played for and was the GM (exec of year twice) for the Bullets. Ferry of course played his prep days in the Washington area. It would be a nice coming home so to speak, and for the Wizards a reconnection with the past.
