Shaw or Scott? I don't care, just pick one!

It appears the Cavaliers' coaching search is nearing its close, with two former Laker players with heavy ties to that organization in the mix. Both Brian Shaw and Byron Scott have now been in for interviews, but there is still uncertainty regarding Laker coach Phil Jackson's future, and it could prevent the Cavaliers from their goal: hiring a head man before LeBron is officially on the open market at midnight Wednesday night. Both candidates are well qualified, and both bring significant positives to the table, so I cannot stress it enough, above all, that the Cavaliers MUST decide on a head coach tomorrow and get him in here ASAP!

Shaw was in town for the past two days, and rumors abounded that the Cavs' search was over, that Shaw had been offered the job, that they were working on a contract, and that Shaw was working on assembling a staff of assistants. It appears that those statements are not true... yet. Brian Windhorst seems to feel (like many others) that Shaw has pulled ahead of Scott in the Cavaliers' race, and the team is definitely leading down the road to a Shaw regime.
