Report: Clippers on Verge of Making the Worst Decision in NBA History

Earlier today, I said that the Clippers’ future looks bright, all things considered. Well, if the latest rumors are true, then I was very, very wrong. Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com has the scoop:

NBA Hall of Famer and current men’s basketball coach at Florida International University Isiah Thomas has emerged as one of the candidates to run the Los Angeles Clippers.

According to a source close to the situation, the Clippers have reached out to Thomas"who coached the Indiana Pacers and also the New York Knicks"to take over coaching, general manager and president duties.

Donald Sterling has made a lot of terrible choices in his time as Clippers owner, but this one would certainly take the cake. I mean, sure, maybe Isiah has his merits as a coach, and he made some pretty good draft picks. But did you see what happened to the Knicks over that period?! He ran them into the ground like few others have ever run anything into the ground!

If the Clippers were to hire Isiah to run the entire franchise (!!!), I think we could safely call this one of the worst ideas in the history of ideas. We’d have to go well beyond sports to find a suitable comparison. Herbert Hoover’s post-crash economic and monetary policies come to mind.

Thomas is currently head coach at Florida International University, where he’s led his charges to a 7-18 record in his first season. The Panthers have a solid recruiting class coming in next year, but the NBA is not about recruiting. I literally cannot think of any reason for wanting to hire Isiah Thomas to run your franchise.

For everyone’s sake, let’s hope this isn’t true.

If that happened, it would officially be the end of my career as a Clipper fan. Other than the Pistons, Isaiah has been an unmitigated disaster everywhere he's been -- and its only gotten worse over time.

the way i see it is cuz coach kim has been there longer and more of dunleavy's right hand man....and prlly cuz kim has not had ne really experience in the league and if dunleavy is done he is prlly out when a new head coach comes in so dunleavy wants to give him the opportunity to prove himself where as john lucas has already been able to do that in his career
