Philly product O'Brien fired


http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2011/1/30/1964462/pacers-fire-jim-obrien

And my question to the Pacers front office is two-fold    A:  Who better is going to coach Indiana and B: Now that you've fired him, will you now make actual commitments to your roster?

 

Sans for a somewhat decent starting center,   Granger and newly acquired Darren Collison, the Pacers have little in the way of talent. More importantly, versatile(ie: defensive) talent.    O'Brien is a seasoned veteran playoff coach who happens to be the last head coach of the 76ers to take  a team very arguably worse than this one to a winning record(43-39). That team was the debut of the massive chucking fest between Webber and Iverson, followed up by a 20-21 yr old Iguodala and the likes of Korver/Josh Davis getting spot minutes.

 

And King actually believed we were at a good place, like Stefanski and no doubt Bird feels about their teams now.  

If I had to say I model my coaching ideals after anyone, it is O'Brien as I enjoyed those 76ers. Taking shots early into the shot clock, aggressively playing defense and ideally, with the right talent you'll dominate opponents. Just as those Celtics did.

 

Neither the 76ers/Pacers had front offices commited to bringing any talent, hence a good man was fired from his job.
