Grizz Lionel Hollins "optimistic" about return to Memphis

1

If there is any shadow of a doubt in their mind, I'd want Paul Allen to fire Stotts & get Hollins in here ASAP. One of the best defensive coaches out there(a big weakness of ours). Not to mention, he is a Blazer at heart having won a championship here in 1977. He is in the prime of his coaching career, has Portland connections & would cure what ails the team. A huge asset of his is his experience developing a legit Point Guard & Center, in Mike Conley & Marc Gasol. No one predicted the amazing strides they have achieved under Hollins. They have been the two mainstays under the coach & are both defensive minded. This year he overcame the odds after the team traded one of their best players(Rudy Gay) and still led the team to a franchise high in wins & another playoff series(and now 1-1 with OKC) Then there is the career revival of Zach Randolph that he helped orchestrate, aside from getting him to play hard on a consistent basis defensively, now Z-Bo is loved in the Memphis community-. Evolving from a player who was once almost universally despised. I've submitted my case. Lionel Hollins is the guy I want for the job & he is the guy Portland needs.
