TSNs Jack Armstrong offers his thoughts on P.J. Carlesimos fate in Brooklyn, the re-emergence of Andrew Bogut, the impact of MVP LeBron James as we all as his playoff predictions for the second round. 1. P.J. CARLESIMO (Nets): Not surprised that he wasnt given the job on a full-time basis. When they give you the interim title, they want to take a good look at you and youve got lots to prove before they remove the label. Ive known P.J. for close to 30 years and have a great deal of respect for him, both as a coach and a person. Bottom line, they absolutely needed to win the series against the injury-riddled Chicago Bulls and didnt. The Nets are a strange mix of players and when I watch them, the expectations dont fit what the final result is. They play with minimal passion and dont look like a together group whatsoever. P.J. did a very nice job righting the ship and pointing it in the right direction after taking over for Avery Johnson in the regular season but youve got to win a playoff series (maybe even two) to keep a job like this. All the big names will be mentioned for this job due to the dollars involved. In order to get the big name type they want (Phil Jackson, Jeff Van Gundy or Stan Van Gundy), GM Billy King might have to be willing to take more of a back seat in order to allow the vision of the coach they recruit to do his thing. None of those guys are showing up just to coach and I highly doubt Jackson comes as a coach anyway. 2. EASTERN CONFERENCE PREDICTIONS: Day late and a dollar short. My picks are the following: Miami vs. Chicago - Heat in 6 games. Really physical/intense series coming up. Bulls are a mess physically but theyre as tough a team as youll find. Theyll find a way to steal two games in this series by mucking it up yet dont have the weapons on the perimeter to keep up with the Elite Heat. Knicks vs. Pacers - Knicks in 7 games. Knicks havent looked real good in the past few games vs. Celtics and Game #1 vs. Pacers. I feel both JR Smith and Carmelo Anthony will adjust to the physical style and defence of the Pacers and settle into a groove. I love the resiliency of Indiana, and Paul George is emerging day by day. They play as a team and every game will be a highly contested one. If the Knicks follow their proven formula of taking care of the ball and making 3-point shots, the game will open up and the talent level will win out. 3. WESTERN CONFERENCE PREDICTIONS: Here are my West picks. San Antonio vs. Golden State - Spurs in 6 games. Wonderful run by the Warriors vs. Denver. The injury to David Lee forced them to play small-ball and it worked out beautifully for them. The tempo/pace of this series will have to be monitored properly for the Spurs to play at the rate that makes them most effective. Love the Steph Curry vs. Tony Parker matchup. Experience, savvy and coaching win out in this one. Oklahoma City vs. Memphis - Grizzlies in 7 games. From what I saw Sunday and during the regular season (particularly now without Russell Westbrook), this is a pick em series. Obviously, the best player between these teams is Kevin Durant and we saw why again Sunday; sensational. My gut tells me that the Grizzlies are in a good playoff mindset and their talented front court will wear down the overwhelmed Thunder front court as it progresses. The Grizzlies team defence will tighten and will find a way to make Durant work a little harder for his points. The Griz caught a break with Blake Griffins injury and the issue with Westbrook will help them again. 4. ANDREW BOGUT (Warriors): When Ive seen him play in person twice this season, I must admit, I had my doubts if he could get it back to his pre-injury days with the Bucks. I still have my reservations as to whether he can hold up and be consistently good over the long haul but I must say he was terrific in the final game vs. Denver with 14 points and 21 rebounds along with four blocks and three assists. He was moving well and had the second/third effort that seems to have abandoned him these past few years. Would like nothing more than to see a good front-court matchup in this series between him and Hall Of Famer Tim Duncan. 5. LEBRON JAMES (Heat): Congrats on the MVP award. In my mind, NO doubt. By far, the best player in the game today. Impacts the game in every category and does it at an improved level each year. When you talk about an athlete being in that ideal zone, their professional sweet spot, hes currently in it. You never know how long it lasts so you enjoy it while you get the lucky chance to witness it. Hes playing at that level that the true great ones play at right now. A joy to watch.

Shane Hnidy joins Brian Munz for the broadcast on TSN 1290 Radio at 7pm ct. With the PCB looking to raise funds in the absence of international cricket in the country and the deadlock with the BCCI in terms of bilateral series, chairman Shaharyar Khan has suggested that the Pakistan board should receive a higher percentage of the income from matches against India at ICC events. According to a paper circulated among the PCBs directors - accessed by ESPNcricinfo - Khan presented the suggestion while making a strong case for a support system for the board at the recent ICC annual conference in Edinburgh.He also made Pakistan-specific points during the meeting, including a request that the ICC compensate Pakistan for having to arrange home fixtures outside the country.Pakistan continues to play India in ICC events. The interest and finances that these generate are unparalleled. Tickets for the World Cup matches in Adelaide and Calcutta sold out quicker than other major sporting events - Wimbledon, the Olympics being two examples, the paper stated. The financial income in ICC championships benefits enormously from India - Pakistan clashes. Currently, all members benefit from the windfall from these matches. [The] Chairman proposed that Pakistan should be given a higher percentage of this income.Barring Zimbabwes limited-overs tour in May 2015, Pakistan has not hosted an international game since the attack on Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in 2009. The UAE has subsequently become their new base. However, the paper says, the extra cost that the PCB has borne to host its cricket in the UAE has placed a huge financial burden on Pakistan cricket and is directly hampering the development of the game in the country.During the isolation, the development phase was put on hold in Pakistan and regional academies were gradually closed due to lack of funds. The project has been revived partially under Mudassar Nazar, who was recently appointed director of Pakistans national cricket academy.The lack of bilateral series, however, has been a major concern for the PCB at every level, including Under-19s, A team tours and the womens team. Pakistani teams can tour foreign countries but the cost of hosting matches in the UAE makes it difficult for the PCB to organise reciprocal home series. The report also reflected on how the isolation has upset Pakistans capacities in other areass, as curators and umpires are unwilling to come to the country.ddddddddddddPakistan is the only country that plays its home matches in a third country, the paper said. This has placed a huge financial burden on Pakistan cricket. This includes having to play host in one of the most expensive destinations in the world. Dubai, for example, was recently ranked as the most expensive holiday destination. To host two teams - Pakistan and the opposition, scorers, umpires, other officials - in the UAE is prohibitively expensive. In addition, the hiring of grounds is a further drain. Little is recouped through gate receipts. Therefore, every time we play at home it is a further drain on resources.Pakistan is also suffering cricket-wise. Many of the national teams have never played a match at home against international teams. These cricketers have been denied the opportunity to benefit from home crowds. At the same time the cricketing public is starved of cricket at home - when Zimbabwe toured all five matches [two T20Is, three ODIs] were sold out in minutes.The political situation between India and Pakistan has also had an impact. The BCCI had signed a Memorandum of Understanding to play six series with Pakistan between 2015 and 2023, with the first to be hosted by the PCB in the UAE in December. As has often happened in the past, the strained political relationship put the series in doubt. The last full series between the countries, including Tests and ODIs, was in 2007 when Pakistan toured India. Since then Pakistan have played only one limited-overs series in India, in December 2012, and the teams have mostly met in multi-team competitions and ICC events. Indias refusal to play has cost the PCB over $80 million in terms of broadcasting and other commercial deals.This needs to be further put in perspective when we remember that India has refused to play Pakistan since 2006, the paper stated. Therefore, the principal source of income has been cut off for a decade. Pakistan, in the meantime, has twice been to India since 2006 without reciprocation and the 2014 MoU has not been fulfilled as the Indian government has yet to lift the embargo on cricketing relations.
