First off, we were overwhelmed by the response to this contest, and it sucks that we can't take everyone who replied. We got some great creative answers, and the question was also a stark reminder of how little success this franchise has had over its history unfortunately.
Second, a big thanks to MGD for partnering up with us in these contests, and hopefully we'll be able to do more of them in the future!
And now, the winners...
Congratulations to Gianni Santin, Jason Arsenault, Darren Bondy, Jeff Chapman, Melissa Dotey and Brad Jefferson!
The six of you were the first correct respondents in our contest, and will be joining myself and three of the HQ team at this Sunday's game versus the Clippers.
The correct answers to the question besides Jay Triano of course were:
-Darryl Walker (1997-98 season)
-Butch Carter (1997-98 and 1998-1999 season)
-Brendan Malone (1995-96 season) and
-Lenny Wilkens (2002-03 season)
Some folks had Sam Mitchell and Kevin O'Neill as options, however their clubs won 27 and 33 games respectively.
Some folks also had Bryan Colangelo...which I nearly accepted as an answer...
Thanks to everyone who participated and we'll be sending out an email to each winner this afternoon.
