BREAKING NEWS: Oklahoma City Fires P.J. Carlesimo

By 11.22.08
Thunder

After getting a 25-piece Chicken McNugget in front of their home crowd at the hands of the Hornets last night, the Thunderous management decided to can P.J. Carlesimo.

In some ways, we didn’t even think that P.J. was on the hot seat because everyone knew that Kevin Durant‘s team was going to be horrible. But it turns out that setting low expectations and then failing to achieve them is grounds for dismissal.

OKC assistant Scott Brooks will take over and now be the guy in charge of watching his group lose. The next time the fans in Oklahoma City pipe up to boo the Thunder, Brooks can kiss his job as the interim coach goodbye.

So what does this mean for the team? Honestly we don’t know much about Brooks except for the fact that he played in the League for 11 seasons and averaged 4.9 points and 2.4 assists per game. But we expect that KD35 could end up jacking even more than the 19 shots that he already attempts each night.
