It was clear that Derek Fisher was not getting the job done and he would be fired eventually but shockingly the Knicks announced his release on Monday, in the middle of the 2015-16 season.  Assistant coach Kurt Rambis will serve as the interim coach.  While he’s auditioning for the job permanently, discussions have already begun as to who will be the Knicks next coach.  Former Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau reportedly covets the job but it won’t simply be handed to him for several reasons.

It’s a little hard to believe that just a couple years ago the Denver Nuggets were a 50+ win team with the Coach of the Year.  Since then they’ve fired George Karl, hired Brian Shaw, fallen deep in the Western Conference and somewhat gutted their roster.  With a 20-39 record and the 13th spot in the Western Conference, it’s obvious that the Nuggets will not make the playoffs this year.  The players clearly know that and decided to ditch all efforts; in fact they’ve publicly chanted their countdown till the end of the season.
