I want us to get where Villanova is. Wojo will need to become a better coach to get to Jay level though.

Agreed.

Of course, first Jay had to become a better coach to get to Jay level.

First head-coaching job: Hofstra.
94-95 ... 10-18
95-96 ... 9-18
96-97 ... 12-15

Second head-coaching job: Villanova.
01-02 ... 19-13
02-03 ... 15-16
03-04 ... 18-17

Yet another guy who didn't step right into a program (or in his case, 2 programs) and work miracles.

Something strange going on with Vander. Has been inactive for two games in a row on G League. I watched part of the first game and they mentioned he was out for personal reasons.

Jamil with another start for the Clippers. Getting good minutes and playing well against the Heat. It’s nice when your coach is an MU guy.

Bill Simmons’ column today was talking about the state of the Clippers and included the line “I don’t even know who Wilson is.”  Does that say more about the Clips, Jamil, or Marquette?

....or Bill Simmons, actually.

Simmons stopped being fun to read about 5 years ago.  He is insufferable on his sports podcasts.  Not surprised his HBO show failed.

I completely agree; he is awful. He's had quite the fall from being one of the main NBA guys for ESPN.  I don't miss seeing him pout when he couldn't get a word in among the other analysts. Couldn't stand watching him.

Best part is the Clippers think undrafted Jamil is a better option to start at small forward than first round pick Sam Dekker

He had a bit of injury trouble, but Dekker has really been pretty unimpressive in his NBA career.  Not shooting well, shows some flashes, but you'd expect a lot more from a top-20 draft pick in his 3rd year, especially one who came out after 3 years in college and wasn't viewed as a project.

But awesome for Jamil.  He's still not overly athletic for that level, but he has a smoothness to his game and certainly looks to belong when he's out there.

NBA analysts should know about college kids who averaged 8.5 / 4.5 for a career.  :-[

I hope Jamil can hang on for a few years and make a little money.

He should.  He's been a self professed Clipper fan and season ticket holder since he moved to LA.  Wilson isn't some off the street signing, he was the first player the Clippers signed under the new 2-way contract rule and was one of their standouts in Summer Leauge.  Read a message board and most Laker fans knew who Vander Blue was even before he became a 2-way.

For an NBA analyst, its just laziness from Simmons and some lame schtick about how to complain about "his team" being so cursed with injuries.

I happen to like Simmons, but agree with you 100% here.

Didn’t he start a campaign for himself to be GM of the Clippers when he wrote for ESPN?

I think that was the TWolves.  And then some snarky jabs about being the Bucks GM where Edens' daughter burned him pretty good on Twitter.

He is an entertaining writer.  The portion of his Book of Basketball about the 1984 draft is really fantastic reading.

Jamil had another start Saturday night for the Clippers. Had 9 points 4 boards 1 block in 23 minutes.  He seems to understand the role they are asking him to play. Several starts in a row is a good sign for the future.

I hope Jamil can hang on for a few years and make a little money.

Even if he didn't know him as a multi-year starter on some fairly successful Big East teams, Jamil made enough noise this summer that he absolutely should know who he is. He was probably just saying that for effect.

I agree Simmons was/is an entertaining writer. I think sometimes these guys get full of themselves with the higher profile being on tv.

Jamil had another start last night 27 minutes 13 points 2 boards 2 steals . Clippers are really pleased that he is making the most of his opportunity. Doc is worried that they may run out of days available on the two way.
