    I should have waited for the Cliff Notes! (Or Kliff notes if this was the Cards forum.)

    I'm thrilled with the Suns hiring Monty Williams but dang. Why didn't they hire Mike Budenholzer.

    Budenholzer has started to build an impressive coaching tree, including Quin Snyder (Jazz) and Kenny Atkinson (Nets).

    Milwaukee assistant Taylor Jenkins interviewed for the Memphis Grizzlies coaching job, league sources tell ESPN. Jenkins has been on Mike Budenholzer’s staff with Bucks and Hawks and served as a Spurs G League head coach.

    If we hired Coach Bud then we wouldn't have the highly sought after #6 pick this year!

    I believe that we tried to hire him but he saw the writing on the wall and passed. He had an interview on one day and then the next day he met with Sarver and reports came out he was not taking the job. Not long after that he was in contact with the Bucks to take over and we ended up with Joe Prunty for our troubles.

    That was back when McD was GM so who knows where we'd be right now if Budenholzer had taken the position. If he had, I don't know if McD would have been fired. Although some have suggested James Jones helped push McD out, I don't think James Jones did anything other than his own job and was honest with Sarver, which led to McD getting the boot.

    I prefer the James Jones, Jeff Bower, Monty Williams sort of staff tree to McD, Jones, and Budenholzer.

    I suspect if the Suns offered Budenholzer the same package as Monty Williams he would be the Suns head coach.

    Maybe Jones, Bowers and Budenholzer would have still happened.

    Anyway, we are good!

    Rob Pelinka allegedly made up a story about Kobe having dinner with Heath Ledger after seeing ‘The Dark Knight’ to study how he “locks in” for a role, per @Baxter


    Ledger died six months before the movie came out.

    So, either Pelinka lied or Kobe has been messing around with the time space continuum? Tough call.

    Ledger died during the editing process of The Dark Knight, before any advanced screenings would be shown.

    Um. Hardly the example I would recommend. Ledger killed himself locking in for that role--literally.
