Can't believe he isn't coming to Marquette.

I was a little surprised Glenn took the Philly job.

I thought he might chill for a year, make some of that easy TV coin while collecting what Ballmer owes him, and then get back into coaching in 2021-22.

But he obviously wants to stay with it, and the Sixers do have talent. They seem to be something of a mental dumpster fire, but maybe he can turn that around.

Still very proud of our friend and fellow Warrior for being willing to work to make our country a better place.

I was shocked he didn't hop right on Dick Strong's private plane from Orlando minutes after the Clippers blew a 3-1 lead on the Nuggets to knock down the Al McGuire doors to come coach MU.

Well yeah. But failing that, I'm surprised he didn't take some time off.

Doc is stepping into a job with a team with a talented roster.  Gets a 5 year guarantee. Hard to find those opportunities .  Combine those facts with his competitive desire to make up for this years disappointment it makes good sense.

I hear ya, and I'm truly glad for Glenn. I think he's a great coach and a better person.

He sounded a little defeated and exhausted after the Clippers got eliminated. I thought that, combined with his obvious distress from the racial unrest, might make him want to chill for a year.

All I want him to do is what gives him satisfaction, so if coaching the Sixers is it, I'll be rooting for him to succeed.

I don’t know how “great” of a coach he is with three series losses while up 3-1 as well as eight first round exits. Good guy? Hell yes. Great coach? Not quite.

To succeed Philly need to move on from Simmons.

I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

NBA champion. Along with lots of regular-season success.

I’ll settle for very good, NBA championship coach.

I read somewhere he's asked the Philly press to call him Glenn instead of Doc, because "there's only one Doc in Philly"

I like it!

When he was at Marquette, those of us in classes with him and who got to know him called him Glenn. Hank called him Glenn, too. Majerus and most of the players called him Doc. Years later, when our paths would cross, I still called him Glenn.

And I agree with Glenn that basketball has/had only one true Doc/Dr. J! That's who Majerus nicknamed him after.

Julius was something in Philly, but when he was with the ABA Nets, the teenage me thought he was the greatest player I had ever seen, and I still thought so until Magic became a superstar.

Julius had Michael's finesse game and LeBron's power, he was a brilliant passer, outstanding ballhandler and an incredible rebounder. And arguably the best dunker ever. (Jordan, 'Nique and Thompson might disagree.) The ABA was an offensive league, so Dr. J didn't consistently play great D, but he made some awesome defensive plays. In that way, similar to LeBron now.

the last time I watched a race is when American Pharoh was racing for the Triple Crown in the Belmont. I was at a bar for the Women's World Cup that day and the race was on. I'll always remember some dudes watching yelling "yeah, go horse!" during the race.

Oooooo spicy take here.  I like both, but I only watch three horse races a year, and only the KD is a 'must see'.

I couldn’t tell you the last time I saw any horse racing beyond highlights for a triple crown race.

True, though they hardly ever have to give soccer players Lasix to stop them bleeding into their lungs from running up and down the field.

Actually, soccer vs. thorougbreds...I have no horse in this race.
