Surprised as slow things are former Michigan assistant being hired as Knicks GM hasn't been discussed. Steve Fisher guys now run the Lakers and the Knicks,Kawhi Leonard is a top 3 player, and Jalen is a main anchor for ESPN. Interesting for OT season.

Michigan men calling the shots for two of the greatest franchises in basketball. Though I imagine one will fare far better than the other.

Good for Scott. It's better to follow the unfortunate mess of Phil Jackson as GM, especially if it is true that you are free to clean house and build it back up.

OP, in addition to the former Fisher players you mentioned Webber is still one of the better basketball analysts on TV, Juwan Howard is an assistant with the Heat and possibly heading to a head coaching role at some point, and longtime assistant Brian Dutcher is now head coach at SDSU. That's a very impressive collection of talent.

I think that OP made a point, at lease implicitly, that Steve Fisher is underappreciated by the M community. And I agree with him. Fisher is a better person/coach than what the Ed Martin scandal suggests.
