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.

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, whatís the deal? I thought you were coming back.
Doc: yeah Danny, Iím back. who else would think Iím worth this much?
Doc and Danny: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Doc: but seriously Danny, Iím just not feeling the love of the fanbase. Too many people seem to want to get rid of me.
Danny: Donít worry Doc. Iíve got your back. Iíll have the fans screaming that your return as coach is imperative.
Doc: How are you going to do that? itíd 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, youíre 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. :)

Pick 2 Draft 2014: Cleveland Cavs:
Starters:
Kyrie Irving, Kevin Martin, Luol Deng, Serge Ibaka, Nikola Vucevic.
Bench: Andray Blatche, Tyreke Evans, Corey Brewer, Kosta Koufos, Rodney Stuckey, Anthony Morrow, Reggie Evans

Sounds like a perfect replacement for Doc haters.
