All signs point to Budenholzer. Not sure how much I love it, but also realize that a young guy would likely be a difficult sell to the current group. Hopefully he brings a motivational/strategic advantage.

Gambo says 2-4 options at most, will make a decision soon...likely within the next week.

Well I don't think Budenholzer is a good choice. I would much rather try fresh blood.

Strongly suggests the plan is to run it back, which is a mistake.

I remember why he got fired. He refused to double team Jimmy Butler who single handedly beat Milwaukee. It was obvious that is what needed to be done.

I don't really like any coach that is that rigid and unwilling to change.

I also remember the Milwaukee fans hated him, that usually happens for a reason.

That's it? What other examples are there of his rigidness? Not saying you're wrong, but that one example isn't enough to completely disregard his candidacy.

I am just sick of retreads in general.

Their ceiling is mediocrity or they would still have a job. You take a chance on a young guy and you might get lucky and get a great coach.

yeah pretty sure im team bud right now - altho it was pretty weird how giannis ran him out milwaukee

The theory was that Giannis wanted Thanasis to get playing time. Bud wouldn't budge on that. Its a players league, so they went with the player and not the coach.

If true, I like this but it will be interesting to watch KD's body language with Bud at the helm.

As opposed to the adjustments, he made in the NBA finals that allowed Milwaukee to beat the suns?

That should fix everything. ;)

Gambo was just reciting all of the head coaches Booker (drafted in 2015) has played for the other day. Maybe the 7th one will be a charm for you guys.

Vogel was to blame for your team's failures about as much as Ham was for the Lakers. Both were just fall guys for failures elsewhere in the organization.
Can’t hold any pre-monty coaching failures against book. He didn’t have any talent around him those years.

Still not sure if he's a good choice or not, but his record certainly doesn't scream "mediocre" to me.
