    So, it wasn't the players' committee after all?

    I would've thought that if that was the case, the Pistons wouldn't have let him go.

    Don't know that we would have a choice. Kind of reminds me of something that just happened to me. A few weeks ago, I turned in my letter of resignation effective at the end of this school year. Well today, I got a letter from the head honcho of the school district saying he accepted my resignation. I thought about sending him a note saying, "I don't really care if you accept it or not. You just wasted time and a stamp telling me something that had absolutely no significance in my life. Get over yourself. You're really not that important. " :pound: But I learned many years ago that it is not wise to burn bridges, cause sometimes you find yourself wanting to cross that bridge again, and it is not there cause you torched it.

    Although the Pistons were reluctant to lose Hammond to a division rival, Dumars still has a strong staff that includes director of basketball operations Tony Ronzone and director of basketball administration Jeff Weltman.
    -
    So is Dumars loyal and stays within the org. or does he go outside.
    This is like the #3 guy in the org.

    You're lucky he accepted it, or you would have been stuck there forever. I would send him a thank-you note that spells our your gratitude for his acceptance of your resignation.

    Yeah, he could of sent a note to your next employer [his friend] saying this guy resigned like a slob. Left us scrambling for a replacement.

    Now that he is gone, I'm pretty sure that Hammond was responsible for Darko, Mateen, Rodney, Teal Uniforms, and bobble head night.

    The rest is Joe.

    Hammond has been exposed to different levels and different depths of an organization. He now has authority to re-frame structural forms and functions of a new organization. This generally means his can put his mark on shared characteristics contained in all organizations (Reframing Organizations, ISBN# 155542323X):

    • Goals
    • Boundaries
    • Levels of authority
    • Communications systems
    • Coordinating mechanism
    • Distinctive processes
    This doesn't mean that he needs to be a beginning wunderkind in mastering all of them...just some of them. Most of his success will be on who he picks for his team. A tough job, and there will be little room in a Diogenes cup.

    Surely, you are joking?

    I would go after Rich Cho who is the Sonics Assistant General Manager. Very sharp guy and might be available.

    I would tend to agree with that. It's a well known fact in business that most problems in an organization were caused by the guy who just left.

    The funny thing with bobble head night is...you either loved it or hated it...no in between.
