Heh. That was fast.
Eric Musselman was fired as Kings coach after one season on the job, Kings basketball president Geoff Petrie announced Friday.
“I want to thank Eric for his engery [sic] and effort,” Petrie in a statement. “I wish him the best of luck in the future. There is no particular joy in making this decision. However, I feel it is in the best interest of everyone going forward.”
I think it was the right decision. Once Musselman got that DUI at the beginning of the season, I had a hunch that the players would lose respect for him, and, by all appearances, they did. Of course, only the players and Muss himself know what really happened during the 2006-2007 implosion.
Ah, well. Let’s hope that Petrie can find us a good coach, and fast.
Wonder what Rick Adelman is up to these days?
