you can nitpick him for being very young, relatively unaccomplished, unauthoritarian in appearance and not always running the lineups the way fans would prefer ("sean williams deserves to start, yo!") but he was good to superb in all other areas i can think of, such as preparation, communication, X's and O's, conflict-resolution, play-diagramming, handling the press, holding players accountable for their actions, extreme dedication to his job, reputation among his peers and basketball's upper management, etc. it's a long list...

as for this season, based on how hard the players played, he did his usual quality job. but with four starters injured (harris, lee, hayes, yi) during most of this losing streak as well as having the bare minimum of players ready to suit up (eight) for so many games, he was pretty much doomed. even the greatest head coach alive would have been fortunate to coax a victory or two out of that situation.

i know one thing: if frank continues to coach at the level he does then i'll be a fan of his for life.

so i expect to have another team to root for pretty soon since frank should be a head coach again by the offseason at the latest. this seems pretty clear to me since the writers and league people have repeatedly indicated it.

He's the scapegoat. You look at the Nets roster who do they really have? D. Harris is just a slasher, he can't slash forever.

I've never been a fan of this guy, but I do believe there is no point firing him early in this season? His contract expires in 2010, so he will be gone anyway.

A little ironic that he was fired on a 16 game losing streak, given that as soon as he was hired his team won 10 straight games.

actually he won more than that, setting the all-time record for consecutive wins by a new coach in major NA sports.

Nets can fire players so they sacked their coach.

I think they said some Italian League coach. So u can all forget about whatever big name in the NBA right now, cause ownership is gonna go in an entirely different direction.
