Eddie Jordan May Return To New Jersey

JerseySenior Analyst INovember 2, 2016

It's not official yet.

He's not even an assistant...just a glorified stalker.

But I prefer looking at the big picture, the grand scheme. And the seeds for a new regime are being planted.

Lawrence Frank has invited Eddie Jordan to work with the Nets.

Could Frank be the cause of his own undoing? He's inviting his old friend back to the team, a friend who would be a very delightful assistant with said team...until Frank is finally fired, and Jordan steps in his stead.

I know, the Nets are playing extremely well this year. The "Fire Frank" ranting has been relatively dormant as a result. But I still don't like this guy, and when Jordan was fired, I couldn't help but salivate at the prospect of his becoming the head coach of the Nets (Okay, I didn't ACTUALLY salivate, it's an expression).

So here's what would be ideal: Jordan accepts his invite and works with the Nets, thereby helping them keep up this surprising pace. He eventually officially signs on as an assistant, and all is well in Netsland.

Until reality strikes, and the Nets suddenly remember that they're supposed to suck for two years until LeBron gets here. Then, Frank is finally booted and Eddie J fills his tiny shoes.

I love speculating about the future.
