Brian Shaw RumorsAll NBA Players
But behind the ferocious Manimal mask, there’s a raw vulnerability, perhaps the result of Faried being told so often he wasn’t good enough to be a big-time college recruit or learn to shoot in the NBA or make Team USA. So when former Nuggets coach Brian Shaw picked and poked at each little negative aspect of his skill set, Faried blew up. The Denver locker room got slimed in the explosion. “If you don’t have a coach that believes in you, then what’s the point of going out there and playing?” Faried said. “If your coach doesn’t have faith in you and puts you out in the fire against all these great players, you’re going to get torched.”
Denver general manager Tim Connelly conducted a sit-down with D’Antoni in California on Tuesday, league sources said. D’Antoni’s vaunted running game fits into Denver’s determination that it wants to play faster in the future. Melvin Hunt, the interim coach in the wake of Brian Shaw’s firing, remains a strong contender to retain the full-time job, league sources said.
Former Nuggets coach Brian Shaw is interested in replacing Gentry as the Warriors associate head coach, a source told Yahoo Sports. Shaw is an Oakland native who attended Warriors practice on Saturday. The Shaw family recently moved back to their Oakland Hills home.
