Today's Freep has a photo gallery of possible head coaches; Michael Curry, Avery Johnson, Terry Porter, Brian Shaw, and ISIAH THOMAS.

That better be the Freep's version of a late April Fool's joke. I don't see the Isiah option happening at all. But if that scumbag somehow became the head coach, all my respect for Joe Dumars, Tom Wilson, and Bill Davidson is gone.

Maybe it was a nightmare....

Avery Johnson should be the front runner.

They wouldn't let Chicago talk to Curry before so you'd have to think he was a coach in waiting. Isiah was a good player but he stinks in management. His big mouth got him canned here before and opened the door for Joe D.

I thought Michael Curry was already a done deal.

Isiah has failed in every coaching job he has held. He might be a good candidate for the next Lions coach though.

Isiah, the prodigal son, will not be returning. He was an average coach with the Pacers and failed with the Knicks. He was a worse GM than coach actually and I'm happy he somehow pissed off Bill Davidson enough that we ended up with Joe Dumars. But how exactly is the greatest Piston player ever a scumbag?

I think Jeff Van Gundy would be a great fit for the Pistons. His personality as a coach is totally different from that as a broadcaster. He's real tough on his players, relentlessly harks on fundamentals, and pushes them to do better, especially after victories. I think he can motivate them, which is what the Pistons need to get over the hump. I don't think the aforementioned candidates are motivators, especially Avery Johnson.
