Rivers sucks, guys get to much credit cause he only started winning with he got the big 3 and all of a sudden he considered a genius and all time great coach, dude sucked in Orl and definetly sucked in Bos before that trade happened, matter of fact he was there during their worse season ever the seaon before and his head was on the chopping block. I'd consider Sloan, he's a hard arse and is old school but he too seems to be a coach who could get the most out of his players IF they're not pre maddona's like Deron.

Well..... if there is a better coach out there that has won a championship that is AVAILABLE I'd like to know who it is. He's not my first pick but knowing that the ownership group want up-tempo I think it will be a guy like him.
He's been to the finals and coached top defensive and offensive teams. Pop and Carlisle aren't available and they are probably the only 2 I can think of who would meet ownerships requirements that I'd take over Karl.
JVG and SVG both would be very good choices but I just don't see the front office going to a system that makes the Triangle look exciting. At least Karl isn't a pick and roll coach.... that doesn't get anywhere. His playoff failures are at the hands of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone.....
If we go with a guy like Scott or a rookie we all will know that they have committed to a "long road" back... I don't see a team ready listening to a rookie on winning in the post season. Karl has as many post season wins as anyone available....
