Well, with 54 games left it's definately not too late.
I've been calling for Bz's head since last year, despite the playoff birth. I never liked him, and I'm ecstatic that he's out and Coop's in.
Coop has 0 NBA experience, but I think the players will respond to him. Part of that is due to him having 5 Rings. I posted this on the Nugs board and I'll say it again, if a gy with 5 NBA championship tells me to do something, I'd do it without a second thought. Even though playing ability doesn't always equal coaching ability, I think Championship experience will be a huge help. Plus, we've got 50+ games left. We can let Coop learn on the job, and give him an "audition," so to speak. If we don't like what we see, we get a new coach in the offseason.
