Nets have fired head coach Lawrence Frank
 
The Nets on Sunday fired coach Lawrence Frank

http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=5082

What's your take on how he did over the years, how he was doing this season, taking into account the roster as well as all the injuries, etc.

Good X's and O's guy, but not a good leader and not very good with lineups. He's better as an assistant coach. He couldn't take a team to the next level.

I thought he had a very talented young roster this season and that theres no excuse for being 0-16. He just could'nt make it work. He had everything he needed. Lopez is an upcoming very good center. He's got a top 5 pg in the league. Douglas Roberts is a very good player and I think T-Wil will also become very good as well. The Nets have good players, I guess he couldnt really get them to work as a team. Maybey VC was there leader, and they lost there leadership.

Also I hope they hire Charles Barkley as there new coach.:D

I'm sure they will keep the coaching candidate internally for the remainder of this year, either the assistant coach or Kiki Vandeweghe will finish up the season.

In the offseason, I bet they go after JVG or an established head coach, so as to attract the big names in free agency.

He got a raw deal. Injuries killed this team. Not LF. He should've finished out this season. Ah well, it's going to be fun watching Kiki coach.

They didn't want Frank to break the record. Figured distract from the Nets tieing, than breaking the loss record by doing a coaching change.....

No wonder he coach the previous game like it was his last. Fouling down by 12 with 30 seconds left... etc.
