But was it the 6 game losing streak that got him fired or the wrath of Steve Francis still upset by the Mobley trade?...Even when we had a good run going earlier this year, a lot of people still wanted him fired. And then they went and did a poll in the Orlando Sentinel about two months ago asking what was the biggest problem with the team. Davis won it in a land slide. That's a pretty fickle fan base for a team that's in the playoff hunt only one year after having their worst season ever.
Magic players are very good at having their coaches fired, aren't they?

I think this has something to do with a Viacom/DishNetwork flap. My local Viacom-owned broadcast station was urging DishTV subscribers to call in and urge DishTV not to drop the affiliate, Nickelodeon, or Comedy Central.
