If I remember correctly, when he got fired, we were just over 500 were we not? or maybe just under. never the less, considering BC's big signing in JO had just gotten injured, and we weren't winning at a great rate, and ford was bitching, should he have really been fired? I feel as if under Sam we would've made the playoffs some of the years that we didn't under Triano.
Meh... not sure I buy that.
Lawrence Frank... D'Antoni... Mike Brown... Rick Adelman... Byron Scott... Scott Skiles.. Avery Johnson... all of these guys were fired from teams and found new jobs shortly thereafter.
If Mitchell hasn't been hired again at this point there's probably a reason why.
