27 Million reasons were not enough for Donovan -
In my humble opinion this is a grave mistake being made by Donavon. While Florida is a great University and any coach would love to be able to control a team there, the Magic area a up and coming team. Being able to walk into a job were you already have a playoff team is next to heaven for any NBA coach.Not only did the make the playoffs, they have Dwight Howard. Need I say more? They have a very up and coming team, they have room in there salary cap to go after some players and they are not affraid to spend money. ($27 million to Billy) As a coach making the jump from college to the NBA it is very hard to find a position were you have a young team, dominate big man, great city and an orgainazition that is commitd to winning. I just dont understand why he is backing out. I think that he could solidify his coaching rep by making this move and only being somewhat successful with the Magic. I guess if 27 million and the beast Dwight Howard is not enough nothing will be.
