The NBA is a cut throat business at the end of the day. Lets just face it, there is no loyalty in the league when you are not producing results. After several seasons without making it to the big dance, it would not be a surprise in the least bit for the Bulls front office to hand Thibodeau the pink slip. There is a prospect in line though.

(Photo) NFL: Plaxico Burress Fires Shot At Former College Coach Nick Saban

IFWT_Plax


Before Nick Saban was known as a coaching genius at the university of Alabama, he was honing his skills in the Big Ten as coach of Michigan State. In the late 90’s Plaxico Burress played for him and apparently Plax still holds a grudge for something Saban said to him back then. He reportedly told Plax to not enter the NFL draft and stay in school only to leave the school himself and take a new job. Coaching is a business and players sometimes get offended but they really can’t. Not too mention people do make bad decisions, and Plax should definitely know that himself.

(Video) Sports: Suge Knight Sounds Like He Is Throwing Shots At Snoop For Coaching Kids??

IFWT_Suge


Years later and Suge Knight is STILL talking about Snoop? Is he ever gonna get over things? Anyway, Suge was talking about how he thinks parents should stay far away from coaching their kids in sports. His comments seem personally directed at Snoop for some reason, which wouldn’t make much sense because Snoop helped coach his son Cordell to become one of the best high school wide receivers in the country. Suge hating?

Could any of you guys see Metta World Peace as a head coach in the NBA?

Right now Knicks fans are reading that headline and thinking “so there is a chance”.

NBA: Report, Knicks Asked Phil Jackson About Coaching Team

IFWT_Phil_Jackson


Not that this surprises me at all, but according to reports, the Knicks general manager Steve Mills flew to Los Angeles within the past couple weeks to speak with Phil Jackson. It is obvious the team will be making a coaching change at the end of this year but it does not seem Jackson will be making his way to MSG. Those same reports have him not being interested in the job and not being interested in coaching anywhere right now. If I was him I would avoid being anywhere around the Knicks with the circus the team has become this year.
