So many names has been suggested as replacement for Doc if he decides to leave after this season.
Personally, I'd love to see Doc stay which will most likely happen if our C's win it all this year.
But if Doc does leave, is there any C's fan out there who would vote for Phil even if it's very unlikely to happen? (Phil is supposedly leaving LA after this season.)
Chances are, Phil ending-up in Miami (perhaps after taking a year off) is more likely to happen because:
1) Phil has a history of taking the job with the most talented players - & that's how he accumulated all his rings unlike the great Red Auerbach who really can coach! (Phil is a free loader.)
2) It is said that Riley doesn't want to go back to coaching & so, if Spoelstra doesn't win this year or next year, expect Miami to make some overtures to Phil even if he & Riles had a bitter rivalry.
3) Phil always has a grudge against the C's & Red even dating back to his Knick days that he always wanted to surpass Red & the C's. (If he doesn't get another championship this year & stays at 11 rings, going to Miami gives him a chance to surpass Boston's 17 championships. What better way to do it than in Miami?)
4) If Riley swallows his pride & does offer Phil the job with Phil accepting, are we then history? Phil with LBJ, Wade, Bosh, & etc. will be bad news to us.
