Michael Curry was sacked as Detroit Pistons coach on Tuesday after just one season in charge.
Under Curry the Pistons finished with a regular-season record of 39-43 and advanced to the playoffs where they were swept from the first round in four games by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The results fell far short of the high expectations for a team that had reached the conference finals the previous six years.
D: I’m surprised this didn’t happen sooner. Curry completely mis-managed the team and was solely responsible for benching Iverson which indirectly caused Iverson to miss the playoffs. Good riddance to one of the worst coaches in recent memory.
Charlotte Bobcats coach Larry Brown told the media Friday he was open to accepting free-agent guard Allen Iverson as a part of the team.
Brown, who led the Pistons to an NBA title in 2004, seemed in a conciliatory mood toward Iverson — considering their tumultuous relationship when he coached Iverson with the 76ers earlier in Iverson’s 13-year career.
But the Charlotte Observer had a quote from Brown that raises questions about Iverson’s future in the league.
“I know he has a big chip on his shoulder now,” Brown said. “He’s got a trainer and is taking care of himself.”
The question is where will he go? There are three teams that will be great for him. These three teams can help AI go to the playoffs and then AI will do his job and help his team to make a run in the playoffs.
