Wizards Coach Flip Saunders fired
 
Adrian Wojnarowski @WojYahooNBA

After a 2-15 start to the season, the Washington Wizards have fired Flip Saunders as coach, a league source tells Y! Sports.


Something had to give.

A good coach gets fired due to moronic players who don't want to listen to him.

they don't read scouting reports and they all take possessions off. They were trying to get him fired.

Slightly surprising. I wonder who will replace him?

Probably not permanent, but:

The Wizards have talked to assistant coach Randy Wittman about taking the interim coaching job, but nothing official yet, sources say.

Larry Brown would be a good choice.

Been butting heads with his team all year. A shame, really. Flip seems like an old fashioned good guy stuck in a new era of misfits.

According to sources, Wizards have hired Mrs. McGee as head coach.

Yay, now the lunatics can take over the asylum completely.

Do the owners of the team actually believe there is a coach somewhere who could coach this bunch to a better record?

Haha. Larry Brown wouldn't want any part of that team. I'm not sure of there's a coachable guy on that roster. I don't think he'd be able to find five guys on that team that he'd be willing to work with.

Well, that should fix everything.

I know they say you can't fire the team, but would that many fewer people come out to watch Saunders walk up and down the sidelines while the opposition had a shoot around?
