At the time Mike Montgomery took the job, I thought it was a no-lose situation for him. Best case: he'd get the credit for making winners out of Golden State when no one else in the last decade-plus could. Worst case: he'd fail where others had failed already, collect some NBA checks in the process and then find a nice large-conference program to be the CEO of after being fired. Which will probably be the case in the end, but I just didn't expect it to be this abrupt.
And as for now with Golden State, hopefully that WE CAME TO PLAY banner isn't part of some landfill at this point.
If this was anybody but Larry Brown, I'd have a little sympathy. If this story is true, though, no one deserves this fate more than he does after the living soap opera he put Detroit through last year. Have fun on the unemployment line!
