i disagree.. VDN did okay for us last season. There were only a few moments last season where i really questioned him, but just because he was a big improvement over Dun, doesn't mean he's the man best for the job. His plays out of timeouts are woeful, and the offense often looks stagnant for long stretches of time.
I didn't hate the hire last season because it seemed like there weren't a lot of great candidates. Thibs was obviously the best available coach, but no way was he going to choose us over Chicago.
Now, however, Rick Adelman is out there. The Clippers have caught a lot more peoples eye, and a coach to bring these young guys together would be just the ticket. His teams often overachieve. His Yao-less Rockets took the eventual champion Lakers to 7, he's had success everywhere he goes, and his only current offer is from Minnesota.
I would love to dump Vinny for him right now, but I know Sterling wouldn't do that with only one year left on his contract. Regardless, I say go for Adelman for the 2012-2013 season.
