Izzo's out...what's Dan Gilbert do now?
Somewhere Danny Ferry might just be saying I told him not to do that. But whether he is or not, Dan Gilbert did do just that by going "all in" on Tom Izzo and it appears he came up snake-eyes. So what's a risk-taking NBA owner to do now you ask? Well, I can't imagine he knows, but I have a guess. No more guessing on Izzo though for now, it won't be him to replace Mike Brown next season. Per the Detroit Free Press Tuesday evening:
"The weeklong saga of Tom Izzo and the Cleveland Cavaliers ended with the Michigan State coach announcing he would stay in East Lansing and pass on an opportunity to coach in the NBA. In a statement released by the school Izzo said: 'I'm pleased to say I am here for life at Michigan State.'"
