Mike Woodson isn't coming back to Atlanta either.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5188712

Have to imagine they'll both have trouble landing a decent coaching gig again.. I wonder where Cleveland and Atlanta will turn now. Collins? Van Gundy? Spolestra if Riley does come back? I've heard worse ideas.

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert says otherwise.

Cleveland Cavaliers staying with coach Mike Brown, owner Dan Gilbert says


    The Cleveland Cavaliers, fresh off a six-game, second-round loss to the Boston Celtics, are staying with coach Mike Brown.

    At least for now.

    Speaking to the media Friday afternoon, Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said a report published by SI.com stating Brown had been fired wasn't true.


This is subject to change, of course. And I'd imagine it'd have to, because if they're picking Mike Brown over LeBron James, they'd be dopes.

Eh, he was the first guy to jump to mind that repeatedly avoided WWE's house-cleaning frenzies. Then he got future-endeavored.

I like how ESPN "breaks the story" of Brown being fired and then when they found out he wasn't, suddenly started "refuting the SI.com story that Brown was fired."

Oh, ESPN is the king of that. Or if someone else breaks the story, ESPN will "re-break" it with "ESPN has learned that so-and-so has been fired...". Yeah, they *learned* it on SI.com just like I did!

Oh I know.

One of the many things I hate about the Four Letter is their egocentrism.

Eh, I'm one of the first to say to hell with Woodson and good riddance to bad rubbish, but I don't think either of them will have a hard time finding a job again. I have a harder time getting a read on Brown's situation (if he's even fired, that is) but to an outsider Woodson look like he did a pretty good job. Took perennial loser Atlanta from 13 wins to 53 wins in six seasons, and became the first team in history I believe to improve its record five years in a row. If you're paying any kind of attention, though, you'd know that the players uniformly hated Woodson and the reason we stopped running real offenses is because everyone was tuning the bum out. Come playoff time it was like a pick-up team full of athletic dudes was playing well-coached NBA teams.

As for where the Hawks go coaching-wise, who knows. Maybe it's time for new blood? I don't see Collins signing up to play against Jordan's team several times a year, and I'm not sure Van Gundy would be intrigued enough to leave his cushy desk job unless we sign an elite free agent to replace the hopefully departing Joe Johnson.

Sadly our cap number is through the roof. If we're lucky we MIGHT have enough room to have a boring summer and sign someone for the mid-level exception or maybe we work out a sign-and-trade for Joe and/or Josh Childress (remember him? tee hee). Honestly I can't think of anything really good that might happen for the team this off-season unless we get into a trade situation involving other people's lottery picks. Or unless another team hires Isiah Thomas and we take all of his best players before someone else does.

And don't even talk to me about Spolestra. No thanks.

Seeing the picture, I say Green went a bit overboard with the prank. But then I hate the idea of veterans hazing/pranking their rookie teammates, so I can understand his reasoning in doing it.
