Not to say it's all his fault but he was getting our coached on an almost every game basis...and you can't have that. It's also Colangelo's fault for putting together such a flawed roster.
Yeah. I agree. It was the right move but the wrong timing for it.. If he was gonna fire him, I believe he should've done it in the off-season after our 4-1 loss to the Magic. It was clear that he and Mitchell weren't on the same page and it was almost as if he was just waiting for a game like the one we had against the Nuggets to give him a reason, any reason, to let him go.
