Scott is in A Better Place. Though I was never a Skiles' fan, he was himself. Now he's undoubtably working for a more 'friendly' ownership.

Just like MN, I was never a huge Skiles fan, but I did appreciate that he expected and demanded that his players work hard. Unfortunately, he had Ben Wallace and Chris Duhon engineer the coup d'etat, and frankly Scott and his staff had problems getting the players ready for games--and especially for 3rd quarters.
