Brian Shaw was overdue to land a head-coaching job. He deserved the opportunity after establishing himself as one of the best young assistants in the NBA. My concern is that he's following one of the best coaches in the league in Karl and when you consider what the offseason was like on the heels of a very good season, there's only one direction this franchise can go. It puts Shaw in a tough spot. One thing he'll look to do is improve their half-court play.
