Much deserving. 

A bit surprised it actually happened, though. Wasn't there some strife between Pop & Colangelo?

Ha, it seems every prediction I made about this situation in the Stevens thread the other day was wrong.

Pops wouldn't want the position because he's too old and doesn't want to make the commitment through 2020.

They'll give the players the summer of 2017 off since the next tournament isn't till 2019.

They might not name another coach till sometime around or during the '17-'18 season.

I need to pull a George Costanza and start doing the opposite of everything I think,

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

Given the praise that Popovich has given to Stevens, I have to think that BS is a strong candidate for an assistant job.
