NBA Report: Former Grizzlies Coach Dave Joerger Agrees to Become Kings Head Coach

Granted you’re not a total f–k up, it’s pretty easy to get another job in pro sports once you’re already in there.  The coaching business in professional sports is like a game of musical chairs with everyone moving around until there’s no spots left.  Dave Joerger and the Memphis Grizzlies parted ways after he reportedly was seeking permission to interview with other teams for the second time in three years.  The Kings were among those teams and things progressed quickly after he was fired.

NBA: Matt Barnes on Grizzlies Losing Badly to Spurs: “We’re coming to a gunfight with some spoons”

Leave it to Matt Barnes to give us a great soundbite.  The Memphis Grizzlies are suffering from an insane amount of injuries.  Stars Marc Gasol and Mike Conley are out as well as their potential backups Brandan Wright and Mario Chalmers, who was cut from the team after his season-ending injury.  Unfortunately for the Grizzlies, their first round in the playoffs is against the one of the best teams of all-time, the San Antonio Spurs who beat the Grizzlies by 32 points in game 1 and 26 points in game 2.  That’s the second-most lopsided first two games in first-round history.  Matt Barnes had an interesting explanation of what’s going on.

Matt Barnes is the kind of player you love when he is on your team but hate when he is on the other side.  The Clippers are going to get a taste of that next season. For the past three seasons, Barnes has brought his intense, physical style of play to the Clippers (who needed it, they had been seen as soft at times). This summer he got traded (to Charlotte, which moved him on to Memphis).  The Grizzlies are known for their tough style of play so Barnes should fit right in and he’s already letting his former teammates know he won’t go easy on them.
