Clifford said that Thibodeau has made himself a better coach during his time off from basketball. "I think what he's done is exactly what I thought he would do is I think he used it to grow as a coach," Clifford said. "We talk regularly and when you talk to him -- he's an expert on this league. He's using this to study teams, study trends, study players. He's always been on top of it anyway, but a sabbatical, it's not like he's -- he's relaxing and doing different things like that, but he's studying. He'll be an even better coach when he comes back."

Charlotte Hornets coach Steve Clifford is one of Tom Thibodeau's closest friends and confidants. Clifford was asked before the game how much interest he thought Thibodeau would have in the New York Knicks job now that Derek Fisher has been fired. "I don't have any idea," Clifford said before Monday's game against the Chicago Bulls. "Obviously, he wants to coach again and that's a great job, he worked there and everything, but you'd have to ask him about that."
