It's good to see Mat Ishbia has invested greatly to improve the Mercury.

I am surprised by the amount of negative backlash this hire has generated.

Is it because he isn't a woman or a person of color?
No, not at all. It is because he has zero experience coaching women’s basketball, yet he is the highest paid coach in the league.

I suppose I could see why some would question that, but if he knows how to behave around women and also knows how to coach than I think he will be just fine.

Honestly kind of surprised the complaining isn't about the other thing TBH.

I’m sure that a white male billionare making a white male coach with zero women’s basketball experience the highest paid coach in the league didn’t help matters.
