The Detroit Pistons announced today that they have fired head coach Michael Curry. Can’t really say that this was a suprise – last season was an absolute mess in Detroit on so many levels. The team was 39-43 and got swept in the first round of the playoffs by the Cavs.
And beyond that, he didn’t really seem to have a handle on the team from the jump. There was initial Chauncey/A.I. trade that sent Rip Hamilton into a season of pouting. Curry could never figure out how keep both Iverson and Rip happy and ended up alienating them both. And by the end of the season, to say that the team looked like they didn’t give a sh**, even in the playoffs, would be a huge understatement.
Who should be the next coach in Detroit?
