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.

[CNNSI.com]

"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.

I agree. Y'know, you hire someone with the worst winning percentage as a coach in NBA history and you're surprised at underachievement?

Well, the Hornets are moving West next season so they don't really count as an East team anymore.

Thank. Fucking. God.

I think it was Greg Anthony who put it perfectly... the worst hiring in NBA history. How's about I take up a collection to buy out Shinn?

He made the playoffs and those Bulls teams he coached were brutally untalented, and that franchise has barely improved since he left.

Yes, but when your own players are waving off your calls and completely ignoring you after ONE year... well, that's gotta say something about your own abilities, not just your players.

The Bulls are still bad because of the bad personel decisions, which was holding onto the wrong young talent.

Kept(for now): Chandler, Curry, Crawford.

Traded: Brad Miller, Ron Artest, Elton Brand.

What Sweet 16 matchup are you most looking forward to? For my money it has to be either UConn Texas or Butler/Oklahoma, if only to see if Butler can pull the shocker.
