There is still a huge need to infuse this group with youth and athleticism at the 3, 4, bench in some shape or form. Until that is addressed...no coach even with a great mind can fix things moving forward. All he will do is buy time but will have to rely on perfect circumstances to contend with the Miamis and OKCs...

Sorry was scrolling down the topics and every time I see this one it's like the doctor hitting you in that little sweet spot on the knee, but involves the head and a wall.

These public statements of confidence from the FO in coaches always seem to come at a point where fans are probably voicing their displeasure at such an alarming rate that they feel they have to address it to try and make the noise go away.
The statement on Brown came when fans were basically screaming "Why get an all star roster and have a below average coach", and then the outcry after the Pringles hire pushed Jimmy to send Mitch out to spew BS about Pringles being the better fit. Now this latest vote of confidence sprung from another surge in fan outrage following Kobe's injury.
Or maybe Mitch's habit of saying "No major roster changes" and then doing just that has me overthinking things.
