07:02 AM ET 06.04 | As alluring as an NBA sideline can be, the broadcast booth sure has its advantages. The Los Angeles Clippers' conversations with top coaching choice, Jeff Van Gundy, have failed to materialize into him becoming a serious candidate for the job, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. As superstar guard Chris Paul prepares for free agency, the Clippers have been bidding to lure a high-profile coach to replace Vinny Del Negro. Van Gundy and Clippers officials did talk more than once about the possibility of the job, but discussions have become dormant, sources said. After spending the past five years as a top TV analyst, Van Gundy has become more open to a return to coaching and has been the subject of several overtures over the past few years.

Just concentrate on getting Hollins. Even the Lakers should go after Hollins. Too bad Gagy loves Dumbtonie too much. Gagy, Kobe, and Dumbtonie will be together for 2 more years....

The Clippers are on the verge of losing CP3 and don't have what it takes in talent to be a serious threat in the playoffs. If he picks a team he would want Brooklyn as would most of the available coaches.

Actually I never start but I chose to this time. Gagy seems to bring me up all the time. Usually you would start the trolling early because you're here earlier than Gagy and his Mom... gagy sure doesn't learn because she doesn't have her own brain and balls...

This thread would have never happened if David Stern and Mark Cuban didn't veto the trade.
