Sheesh, Tim Floyd just got fired as coach of the New Orleans Hornets, shortly after they lost Game 7 of their first-round series against the Miami Heat.
"We thanked Tim for his hard work, but we are in a bottom-line business," owner George Shinn said at a news conference. "We hired a coach that we thought could help us make a run to the next level, and we weren't successful."
So, before the playoffs have even reached the third round, five Eastern Conference teams-- Boston, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Toronto and Atlanta-- have all fired their head coaches.
Does no one in the Eastern Conference have any patience? Are they not aware that part of the team's chemistry has to do with the coach, and changing the coach all the time is not going to solve the problem?

Well...they never should have fired Silas in the first place, but I can't say I didn't see this coming.

In the context of baseball, the use of drugs hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, the use of alcohol hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, womanizing hurts whom? Maybe the wife of the player? In the context of baseball, felonies are crimes against society, not against baseball. In the context of baseball, gambling is the only crime against baseball.
Gambling, in the context of baseball, is a capital offense and Rose has richly earned-- hell, he agreed to-- his death sentence. Let him hang.

Good move for the Pistons, assuming of course he can stay humble, play the role they want him to play, and not insist on trying to be "the man", hog the ball and score 25 points every game. (See also: Allen Iverson.)
