Byron Scott or Jeff Van Gundy......I wouldnt mind Mark Jackson either.
BUT PLEASE NO:

Where Trading Happens As Much As It Does On
I'm on the Byron Scott bandwagon as well. Fairly young coach who could stick around for a while. He was good with Tyson and I feel like he could handle Jack as well. No Avery Johnson. Can't stand him as an analyst let alone a head coach.
Would Jordan still have an interest in Sam Mitchell, just curious, but please no Avery Johnson
Also liked Patrick Ewing (although maybe I'm biased because I was raised a Knicks fan during the Ewing-Oakley-Starks era)
But Lawrence Frank? Cmon!
PS NBA.com needs to update Hanners' bio. Its still gushes over being a coach in New York (which didn't work out well for anyone on Brown's staff).
I say the same thing about Mike D'Antoni -- did he make Steve Nash great or did Nash make him great? Same goes for Scott with Kidd and Paul.
Say what you want about Avery Johnson (not my #1 choice, fyi) but he has a career .735 winning percentage over 3 seasons.
MJ could just pull a Jackie Moon and be the first Owner, Coach, Player.
