Reportedly, Ainge likes VDN because he would bring a more-up-tempo offense.

That makes some sense because I think Ainge has been making the mistake of acquiring personnel that he hopes would force Doc to go with more of a running offense.

In the abstract, I think some people here would love the idea of the next Celtics coach being someone from the Popovich coaching tree who wants a faster-paced offense that pushes the ball up the floor.

I don't pay much attention to coaching outside the C's - anyone care to list VDN's faults as a coach?

Yeah, Del Negro would not have been my first choice either.

He's been fired from the Clips and Bulls in the last 5 years.

I would've rather someone a little more respectable (Larry, Karl, Hollins, Shaw, etc.)

Not well respected amongst his players. Limited ability to craft an offense to fit his star's talents. He's also not a great defensive coach, he got inconsistent efforts out of the Bulls that Thibs turned into a monster and the Clippers.

And he is possibly the worst coach in the league at managing rotations. The Clippers playoff rotation was a complete disaster. From game to game, it honestly looked like (aside from Paul and Griffin) that minutes were allocated completely randomly.

my comments from the front page article:
All a ploy

Danny: hey Doc, what’s the deal? I thought you were coming back.
Doc: yeah Danny, I’m back. who else would think I’m worth this much?
Doc and Danny: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Doc: but seriously Danny, I’m just not feeling the love of the fanbase. Too many people seem to want to get rid of me.
Danny: Don’t worry Doc. I’ve got your back. I’ll have the fans screaming that your return as coach is imperative.
Doc: How are you going to do that? it’d take a miracle.
Danny: like you not running the vets into the ground and not sitting the young players until the vets ahead of them are out with injuries?
Doc and Danny: HAHAHAHAHAHA
Doc: Good one man!
Danny: No worries Doc, just let me get this rumor about wanting Vinnie Del Negro out there as your replacement and the fanbase will be screaming to keep you.
Doc: Thanks Danny, you’re the man.
Danny: [dang] right. Now let me get back to finding the worst big man scrubs to claim as free agents to make your job tougher.
Doc and Danny: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
and the conversation went just like that. :)

Sounds like a perfect replacement for Doc haters.
