Dirk is in his prime, but there always seems to be something missing in his game
The life of a professional coach has to be crazy. I liken it to a bunch of kids peeking around a corner hoping their Pop isn’t waiting with the belt after a bad report card.
Didn’t Avery Johnson just make the distinguished honor roll last year?
He’s out as coach of the Mavs despite his almost incomparable 196-70 record over the past three and a half years. He took the Mavs to the NBA Finals in 2005 and they won 66 games last season.
There was some philosophical differences with Mark Cuban that arose this season so you could sat the writing was on the wall–especially after a second consecutive first round exit even though the Mavs lost to a better New Orleans team. Will whoever gets the job take the Mavs to the top?
After the Kidd trade and including the playoffs, Dallas was 17 up, 17 down after a 35-18 start.
Josh Howard seemed lost on the court during the season and into the playoffs.
I personally feel Dallas has yet to recover from the loss to the Heat and last years shocker at the hands of the Golden State Warriors probably was the Dallas death knell for the Little General.
He was grooming Devin Harris to be his floor general, but because of recent failures, Dallas had to make a drastic move in landing Kidd.
I hope he lands on his feet but he won’t be unemployed that long for he’s too good of a coach.
