Enough was enough
The Larry Harris Era ended today. The Lizard Years are mercifully behind us.
By the way, not that I disagree with the move, but the Bucks always seem to pick the oddest times to change personnel, don't they? What's with these late March purges? What good do they accomplish? (So help me, if the words "playoff push" are uttered at this afternoon's press conference as an answer to that question, my head will explode.)
I guess the explantion could be more benign. Maybe the Senator just wants to get a jump on being rejected by Doug Collins for the eighteenth time. Never can ask that guy too many times, can you? (Why does Senator Kohl have so much respect for Collins basketball acumen, anyway? Because he had a perm in the early 90s? What has he ever done besides offer obvious and boring commentary from the television booth? Why not hire Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith, then. At least the fans will be entertained while we lose.)
Or maybe it was just that last night's disgusting performance... at the BC, no less... was more than any self-respecting owner anywhere should be made to tolerate. I mean, losing at home to a team that basically has a white surrender flag tied to the front of their team bus? I mean, the Heat don't even know from day to day whether their coach is going to show (I'm surprised Riley resisted the temptation to scout that Coppin State-Mount Saint Mary's game last night... I have no respect for that guy.) Unforgivable!
So, what will it be this time? Who's next on the menu? Well, let's see, there are two ways this organization likes to go: (1) way overspend on someone with a big name, (2) find someone unqualified who will work on the cheap. Oh, its been a great last twenty years, hasn't it? The ferris wheel just keeps on a turnin' in Bucks Nation.
Anyway, whoever it is, I guess I'll be satisfied if the guy at least pretends to have a logical plan for rebuilding the Bucks... and I mean one that doesn't involve his hand and the seat of his pants. If he could just bring that much to the job, I'd say that would distinguish him from about 95% of the gentlemen who preceded him as Captain of The Good Ship Bango.
Where have you gone, Wayne Embry?
