    My feelings on Crean mirror yours. I gotta admit, however, that I have my heart set on the chance that Stevens will be the next coach. For that to be a possibility, I think this team needs to limp into the tournament and then fall short of whatever expectations are set next year. Then, Ainge has to fail to land any FA's this summer which would ensure another 30 win season in Boston.

    Crean's buyout drops to 4 mil and Stevens would have suffered 150+ losses in three years with no hope in sight. At that point, I think the timing would be right for both parties.

    It's a pipedream, I know.

    I realize that. One of those Nets picks has already been used (on Young, I think) and the next two aren't until '16 & '18. Even if they draft well, it will take another few years for them to mature and gel. Just look at the learning curves for Washington and New Orleans , who are both competitive now but far from elite yet. That's a long time to wait - not sure how much patience he has. They need a big time FA soon to speed up the process and provide hope.

    I get that a lot has to happen on both sides to make it work for IU but a lot has to happen for Boston too (maybe) to convince him it's worth the wait.

    Like I said, I know it's a pipedream but it's my pipedream and I'm sticking to it until either IU or Boston starts winning..

    Stevens isn't going to IU unless he is fired. Indiana fans need to focus on other realistic targets like Sean Miller, John Calipari, and Bill Self.

    Fans are the best, especially ones from programs that think they are a little better than they actually are. You have got to read the article I linked, it sums up fans' ridiculousness when searching for a coach.

    Izzo rumors growing legs
