Golden State Warriors' owner Joe Lacob made it clear that he wants his team to succeed, not a few years down the line, but now.
He has made all the right moves so far. He hired Jerry West recently in hopes of getting a more professional feel around the Warriors' front office, and West is also someone who has had success building a team from the ground up.
Not that the Warriors have no talent on their team, but one playoff appearance in too many years may have some teams not even seeing Golden State in their rear-view mirrors.
They have no reason to until a coach is hired.
Lacob has openly said that he wants a coach with a big name and someone who will lead this team for years to come, not just a brief stint for a couple years. It will be Lacob's first major hire as owner of the Warriors, and you can bet that Lacob will be making sure he is hiring the best man for the job.
A slim bunch of experienced and inexperienced coaches remain, and if Lacob wants to win now, he better start throwing the house at some of these coaching candidates before the good ones are gone.
