Went to Trader Joes. A Black woman yelled, "Hi Terry McMillan." Shocked me. And I said hello back. "I read all of your books." And I said, "Thank you. But how did you recognize me with my mask?" She said, "Please. You know how we see us."
Black head coaches remaining in the 30-team NBA: Cleveland’s JB Bickerstaff, Detroit’s Dwane Casey, Atlanta’s Lloyd Pierce and Phoenix’s Monty Williams. Black coaches fired in 2020: Doc Rivers, Nate McMillan and Alvin Gentry. Black coaches hired in 2020: 0. NBA black players 75%.
Who is going to get blamed in the Milwaukee Bucks organization for another early exit from the playoffs? Nate McMillan lost his job for losing to the Heat in the first round...Will Coach Budenholzer lose his job for losing to the Heat in the second round?
Not sure what more Nate McMillan was supposed to do: took LeBron to 7 games in 2018, helped Oladipo & Sabonis become All-Stars, didn’t have his best player available the past two postseasons. Oladipo missed a full year. TJ Warren shined. The extension made sense. This doesn't.
