    Go screw yourself Stephen A . I’m white and sick of this bs about race. I could care less who’s black and white. But pulling the race card is ruining society!!

    The Cleveland Cavs owner is racist. He wanted to hire a white coach just like the New York Knicks what Cleveland Cavs need is a NBA player who actually play the game and who is actually an expertise in offensive system and defense. Because we all know this coach has not won a ring and he sucks

    What’s wrong with being a career assistant coach? It’s a respectable job. There used to be so many of them and no one used to always talk about them “deserving” a head coaching opportunity.

    So sick and tired of SAS race agenda with the coaching hires trying to shove it down people’s throats. If the person being hired is qualified, that should really be enough.

    He should have been fired from the Brooklyn Nets

    someone who hangs out with sean hannity on the regular shouldn’t try to speak for an entire community. SAS is an opportunist, to put it mildly

    Is it because Sam Cassell’s name is mentioned here that any team president or owner will take a deeper look? These guys have agents to lobby more effectively for them. It’s sounding as something done for the record, to be able to turn around at anytime to claim how much one has supported a certain community. If I was Sam Cassell or any other black coach, I’d hate to have my name brought up every time a white coach is hired.

    Life long cavaliers fan and id rather have an actual COACH than a former role player with NO experience aka jj reddick – would have liked a sam cassell over kenny but still kenny will do way better than bickerstaff

    There’s no need to bring Sam Cassell in this convo he ain’t leaving Boston. Also we’re tired of this constant race baitin

    This guy is 118-190 as a head coach in the NBA, and he gets another chance to be a head coach and make millions?? What Black man could have a record like that and get another chance to coach??

    I mean, if teams are repeatedly passing up on the same guy, there’s probably a pretty good reason for it…

    Kenny Atkinson did a GREAT job with the Brooklyn Nets and should’ve NEVER been fired. Has nothing to do with race.
