What I'm thinking.

I'll take Scott in a second. Hell, I'll drive to New Orleans, pick him up and drive him back myself if I have too.

You're right. That happened so long ago I forgot.

Scott was angry because Davis took too long for his rehabilitation if I remember. Seemed like he knew Davis was just fooling around.

I had the over/under for firing Scott at 12.5 games, not bad.

I guess the front office was extremely impatient and couldn't wait a little longer at least. I think this was an idiotic move so early in the season, it's a tough league. Was there interest in firing him before the season?

So I now understand that this was expected to happen if the team didn't have the best start after only a few games.

Word is that they were going to fire him after the playoffs last season, but didn't go through with it because of the money involved (Scott's contract runs out at the end of this season). Firing him now means they don't have two head coaching contracts on the books.

Don't forget Mike Dunleavy, Carlisle, Larry Brown, and Doc Rivers. Total curse the last decade.

It's like the Raptors with Chris Bosh....franchise players who don't act like franchise players.

We all know CP3 is not garbage; you shoulda realized that "complete" doesn't include CP3. David West is the worst all star in the league.

Peja can't shoot worth a damn now; Okafor who?

Scott is a quality coach, but I think he'd be better suited in the college game myself.

I'm sure he wouldn't struggle to find a big tim job should one open up considering he's had playoff success with 2 different teams in the NBA and 2 finals appearances.


I just don't think his demanding attitude can continue to push teams to go out and perform for him over an extended period. Where I think it would be great in the collegiate game where kids come and go.
