You would think if you fire a coach at the very start of the season you'd have someone in the wings who is ready to step in and immediately assume the position rather than sit down and go over the ground work for a new contract. Bottomline: you didn't make the cut, Phil. I'm thinking D'Antoni was their pick from the get go and Buss just wanted to stick it to Jackson, with a big audience. Whose playing the head games now?
Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.
