Despite reports to the contrary, last night the Sonics brass held a meeting to discuss the coaching situation. As a result of that meeting, Howard Schultz will meet with Bob Weiss to discuss the job this evening. There has been a tremendous ground swell of support from the current Sonics players for Bob Weiss as the head coach. Universally, they all talk about “trust” as the key ingredient when talking about Weiss. As one person said it has been so strong it almost feels organized.
The Sonics Ray Allen is at the forefront of the players endorsing Weiss.
The question is how much should the players be heard? Have the players earned the right to have be heard? Do the players deserve the continuity that they are asking for?
Tonight’s dinner between Schultz and Weiss could go a long way to determining this.
