Brad Turner ‏@BA_Turner 1m Clippers assistant coaches Howard Eisley, Dave Severns are expected to be retained by new head coach Doc Rivers, sources.

I'm a big fan of Dave Severns and he's extremely well liked by players/front office as player development coach but watching 6'0 Eisley work on post moves with DJ was laughable and a bad decision IMO going forward. We need a bigman, teaching big men.

Would anyone want Shaq to teach our bigs? This is an honest question.

Yes, but he wouldn't do it for the season. Maybe a short, week long camp or something but he is too busy and set, otherwise.

I know it sounds crazy, but I wish that we would give Rodman a chance to work with DJ. Rodman got a lot of credit for being a similar player to what Reggie Evans is, which credit is something I think DJ wants. If Rodman could convince DJ that if you win you get credit, even if you have no points it could be a turning point in his game.

If anyone I'd like to have them work with an Alonzo Mourning or David Robinson.

Come on, height shouldn't affect someone's ability to coach. Besides, DeAndre Jordan did have improved post moves.

I do think it would help to have a HOF big man to work with our bigs. But- just because they are HOF'ers doesn't mean they are good coaches. And which HOF big man is available to help develop our bigs on a full-season basis?

Height isn't what matters but just like a center shouldn't be teaching PG's, a PG shouldn't be teaching centers IMO.

I always thought Iavaroni was the bigs coach. Where is Moses Malone? Adrian Dantley would be good. That guy is like a crossing guard, so he could use the job.

What made him qualified to be a big man coach? Does anyone remember how he played? Was he a post-up PG?

No Rodman and DJ are very different. Dennis had a motor that just doesn't quit. He will fight for every lose ball and sadly you can't teach that. If anything I want Alonzo or my favorite undersized bigman, Big Ben Wallace to teach DJ. Ben had such an impact on the game despite him being an offensive liability.

Moses Malone now that is a good thought, him or Alonzo would have my vote instantly.

Ivaroni WAS the bigman coach but a couple STH's here that used to get to games early said it was always Eisley who would be teaching our bigmen post moves and that he looked pretty clueless.

I'm sure Shaq will teach him some tips, but really Shaq dominated the league because he was stronger and bigger than everybody else. I want a bigman that can teach skills. We don't even need DJ to score 15ppg, we just need him to make his FTs, grab rebounds and protect the rim. Kind of like what Ben Wallace did, except I want him to shoot atleast 60% FT. Leave the scoring downlow to Blake.

I didn't know Alonzo had an official job with them, I thought it was more like Hakeem with the rockets or kareem with the lakers. I just read the guy has an official title with them, my bad.

Yep. And I think that will help. These other guys don't exactly inspire confidence.

It's actually not the teaching that is to issue, it's the working on moves and the smaller things that's the problem.

A small guy can teach you moves. A small guy can't bang with you and show you what opposing defenders will be doing and teach you how to avoid those thins.

Usually the coach will work on the moves with the player and be the defender, etc, and it's just hard for a small guy to simulate being contested by a big man and the resistance you get. Then there are things an actual NBA big man can pass on experience wise that a guard just doesn't have experience with outside of hearing others talk about it. Little tricks like how to get deep position and avoid 3 in the key, box out techniques, things a guard doesn't do.

Bill Walton Moses Malone Bob Lanier Kevin Willis

All guys who if they are interested you could look to.

DJ needs to learn the basics, he doesn't need Hakeem to teach him the basics. Anyone can teach him the basics- boxing out, rotations, closing out, basics post moves, etc...

It's an insult to one of the greatest centers in the history in the NBA to teach such basic skills to a low IQ player like DJ. I've seen volunteer dads teach the basics that we require out of DJ.

5 years of "professional" basketball....

Players learn this stuff in middle school, highschool, and college- they didn't need Hakeem to teach it.
