Another One Bites The Dust: Theus Fired!
Total Pro Sports – 6 NBA coaches have already been canned this early NBA season. It all started with Oklahoma City’s P.J. Carlesimo, then came Washington’s Eddie Jordan, Toronto’s Sam Mitchell, Minnesota’s Randy Wittman, Philadelphia’s Maurice Cheeks, and now Reggie Theus of the Sacramento Kings all have been fired before Christmas.
Reggie Theus is most famous for starring in the TV show “Hang Time“. He was really shocked at the fact he was let go,
“I had no idea [in advance]. We were just coming off our best win [over the Lakers] the past two years. We’ve had a lot of injuries. … Everyone knew we were rebuilding and the projection was for 20-25 wins.”
Getting your team off to a 6-18 record, having an NBA Power Rankings for week 7 at the #24 spot and beating the Los Angeles Lakers definitely warrants for his firing. There has come a time in pro sports where owners want bang for their buck, if your not producing your gonna get fired.
Reggie Theus was given a chance and it didn’t pan out for him, maybe hell have luck in his next line of duty.
