I agree Silas seems to be a nice guy - good players guy, but otherwise I've not once been impressed with his actual game coaching or his talent assessment skills. Honestly I think he's a pretty bad coach actually. So clearly he's not my choice regardless of how bad he wants it. Hey, I want the job really bad too, but that doesn't mean I should have it.
So please Larry Brown for now.
I don't think that Rick Carlisle is even an option at this point. He'll be off the board very soon.
