And that is true how exactly?

He could relate just fine. Andrea likely wasn't all that accepting of what was demanded of him, and always had BC and Maurizio to run to. What part of the succesful season was not his doing? Are you saying it was one big accident? How did the team do when he got fired?

Sam was a scapegoat after a bunch of non-NBA calibre players were brought in and Jermaine started complaining immediately. It went beyond Andrea's role and whatever differences came into play there. The golden boy GM needed to spare his reputation and so kicked the coach to the curb after the coach did everything he could to bring a lot of praise Bryan's way.

The current situation is very different. Entirely different expectations on everyone. The GM is still going to need to get this coach some players to work with, and is likely on the hot seat far more than this coach, and rightfully so.
