Default Looks Like Allen Iverson Probably Got His Team's Coach fired

After Iverson's team got eliminated at the first stage of the Eurocup season (the level below the Euroleague) and finished last in their group, and after they have continued to struggle in domestic play in the Turkish Basketball League, the head coach of Besiktas was fired.

The firing of the coach also interestingly coincides with the coach's decision to move Iverson to point guard and Mire Chatman to shooting guard. This was supposedly done after Iverson kept complaining that he was not getting enough shots playing off the ball and so he wanted to have control of it at all times.

Chatman stopped showing up at practice with the team after this supposedly mad because Iverson refused to pass the ball during games when he was playing point.

Right after this happened, the coach was fired and now the team is said to be looking to dump Chatman and keep Iverson at point guard........

The coach they are said to be looking at as a replacement is notorious for demanding excellent defense and 100% total pure point guard play and pass first/team first mentality from his point guards..................


It does not look like this Iverson experiment is going to end well.

What does Iverson have to do with that? There are other players on the team.

It was all their fault.

Iverson complained to the coach that he was not getting enough shots playing shooting guard. The coach then moved him to point guard. Chatman, the team's point guard, then stopped practicing with the team after a few games, supposedly mad that the team's new point guard (Iverson) would not pass the ball and run the team offense.

After this happened, the team's management got mad at the coach for losing control of the players and fired him. They are now trying to hire a replacement that is notorious in Europe for being an old school, hard ass coach (think Larry Brown).........

So obviously, it appears that Iverson's actions have already led to the team's coach being fired and to problems within the team.

The other PG is just as much to blame, as is the shit coach that can't keep people in check.

If any of that happened since there's no link from nolinksyo.

Sounds like this Chatman guy could be a problem, huh?
