I thought it had to do more with LOUSY players, and bad senior management.

“AOL? Seriously?”

Yet more proof that a great player, and one with class, does not necessarily make a good coach.

Cheeks is classy as a player and a coach.
That lineup he has to work with stinks. Face it. No center.
And the shooters and scorers are not consistent at all.
The GM will be next to go. The head guy always fires the subordinates before the head guy in shown the door.
Cheeks will end up in Charlotte with Larry Brown next season. Book it.
