Puttin' some mustard on Seattle. P.J. to be new coach.

Retread in Seattle.

The Seattle SuperSonics have scheduled a Thursday news conference amid reports that the team has hired P.J. Carlesimo as its new coach.

Team officials refused to comment Tuesday on a report that first appeared on the San Antonio Express-News Web site, which said Carlesimo had been chosen by Sonics ownership.

Good god. I really am not looking forward to hearing his grating voice on the sidelines. This is something that can not and will not work. He can never have the respect of an NBA locker room.

Does he deserve a second chance? My initial reaction is yes, it's not his fault he got choked. But my second reaction is that he should have known what he was dealing with in Spree and that his lack of respect for his star player shows that he was unaware of the sociology of the NBA despite coaching in Portland prior to that.

I'm sure he's learned and I'm sure he's mellowed, but he's always going to be kind of a joke based on what happened to him. We'll see . . .
