Boston Celtics: The Big Green Machine

We'll be back and better than ever!

Thibodeau Not Kings Top Choice

Posted by r1zzo23 on June 1, 2009


Tom Thibodeau was in Las Vegas on Saturday, adding to his résumé with yet another head-coaching interview.

But the Boston Celtics’ associate head coach, the third candidate to interview for the Kings’ head-coaching spot, appears to lag in the race. He trails Lakers assistant Kurt Rambis and is even further behind former Phoenix and Seattle coach Paul Westphal. Eddie Jordan – initially believed to be the leading candidate – agreed Friday to take the 76ers’ head-coaching job.

Rambis is expected to travel to Las Vegas soon for his interview, as the Kings have received permission from the Lakers to do so before the NBA Finals begin Thursday. How that fits into Kings basketball president Geoff Petrie‘s schedule remains to be seen.

The more coaching vacancies that are filled, the more it looks as if the defensive genius could be returning to the Boston Celtics next year. It would be great to have him back for one more run at a title with a healthy roster. Only time will tell if he’ll be back, but he’s more than welcome to stay.
