The New Orleans Pelicans may not be a playoff team yet but they are still dominating headlines well into June. First came JJ Redick’s podcast revelations which did not help boost confidence in the front office. Reports of locker room discontent were followed by the news that Stan Van Gundy and the team were mutually parting ways. Then came the speculation about a possible relocation of the team and Zion Williamson’s levels of satisfaction with the organization. Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations David Griffin started the season planning for the playoffs but now he faces a career-defining summer of dealing with the fallout of Van Gundy’s unsuccessful season.

His belief in me, and the security of knowing I always had a job with him helped me take that leap.”

As open-source software, the data lakes could be customized and wouldn’t shackle the enterprise to one vendor, a fear leftover from negative experiences with single-vendor legacy environments.

Increasingly, the league is favoring younger and less-experienced head coaches, and the failure rate and turnover at head coach seems similar to quarterbacks. It isn't always all on the individual himself (and, hopefully, eventually, herself), and surely there are other factors involved from the obvious to less-often considered.
