Hadn't seen anyone put one up yet and it suprised me a little. I for one hope Monty has a great run as the head coach in New Orleans. Can't wait to see him have them back in the playoffs even if they are a conference rival. I bet he does well, too. Two young point guards, one of the best in the league and another promising up and commer. Knowing Monty I'm sure the SG's, SF's and stretch 4's will be improving as well. I think a lot of Nic's improvement can be attributed to Monty, and to a lesser extent, the same is true with Marty.
While Monty was here I always saw him as one of the best guys in the organization. Good work ethic, good teacher, totally supportive and a true asset. I really wouldn't have minded him stepping in the head coaching job here if things had gotten sour with Nate at the helm.
I'm glad to see Monty getting the coaching job he deserves. I'm glad he landed in a town with a decent team and filthy rich owner. I wish him all the luck in the world and I'm sure most Blazer fans would.
