this is a total different situation except for the part where PJ was unknown as a head coach
. that's about as far as the comparison can be had. for those whom are forgetting/didn't know, PJ was a assistant under Doug Collins with the Chi Bulls. Therefore, he had some understanding of what it's like to be involved with coaching. After DC was let go PJ walked into the Chi Bulls locker room in the '91 season to a starting 5 which just needed that push to get over the bad-boyz hump. A starting 5 of MJ(NC Chapel Hill), SP(Central Arkansas), JP(ND), HG(Clemson), and BC(San Francisco). with PJ's zen master like teaching and the triangle offense(tex winter's offense to be exact) the Bulls Dominated and the rest is history. It was if the sun, moon and the star aligned at the precise moment. As someone mentioned already PJ wanted SK for the simple reason that PJ was going to coach through SK. I mentioned that several pages earlier. But SK parlayed that into a contact with GSW.
will the sun, moon and the stars align for SK. well it's still unknown.
