Because when they could have waited and found themselves with a possibility of Mo and Redd playing Seven Seconds or Less or Avery Johnson being the Rich Man’s defensive genius, what did the Bucks do?
They hired Scott Skiles, the poor man’s defensive genius. Who’ll get about 18 months out of a team and then watch the team burn out. It happened in Phoenix, it happened in Chi-Town, it will happen again in Milwaukee. Count on it.
And another thing? Yes I am bitter that now Flip Saunders is available. He is the perfect choice to transisiton a team from bad to decent and decent to good. Yeah, he may never win the big strap, but he can get a lot out of bad and decent.
Kohl woud have broken the bank for the Flipper.
