The Russians apparently like three things....Vodka, money and Coach K. The Nets new Russian owner (I'm not bothering trying to retype his name) are wanting to offer a college coach more money than the Silver Fox Phil Jackson, makes in LA.
This owner needs to learn really quick that college coaches do not typically succeed in the NBA, no matter how much money you pay them. I'm confused, flabbergasted and finding it hard to believe that this kind of money could possibly be on the table for a man who has never coached an NBA game.
K says he isn't interested, but can anyone really turn down this kind of money? We're talking over an 8 million dollar a year raise.
That's big time dollars, folks.
