Nobody in America is going to bat quite as hard for David Blatt as myself and my staff.
An open letter to Phil Jackson was part of our push, and in this interview on 1280TheZone in Salt Lake City the subject came up again.
Now, I do not know if the Jazz have interviewed or plan to interview Blatt. But I would bet the mortgage that Kevin O’Connor and Dennis Lindsay of the Jazz front office know who he is, and as I said on the air: If the Jazz want to hire the best coach available, they should hire Blatt. Period.
For more on this stealth coaching candidate, who just led Maccabi Tel Aviv to the Euroleague title, give a listen. You will also get to hear about who will be the most sought after free agents this summer, what the odds are of the Pacers winning the NBA championship, and much, much more. Enjoy.
