Hey guys... not really a fan of the Thunder, more a fan of the game. I was wondering what you gys thought of Brooks. Obviously he has been doing a great job for the team, they have gotten deeper in the playoffs each year under his guidance, but I have heard some complaints from time to time. If this roster doesn't win it all this year, do you think management might look to get another coach? Or do you think his job is safe for a couple of seasons? I think there are some high expectations for this roster, espcially considering how well they did last season.
Thoughts? Is this going to be a do-or-die year for Brooks? Or will management be patient with him should the Thunder not manage to pull out a championship this season?
It may seem silly, but teams have fired very successful coaches in the past. The Bulls fired doug Collins despite the fact that the Bulls had gotten deeper in the playoffs each season under his guidance, and the Pistons fired Rick Carlisle after he got them to the conference finals for the first time since 1991.
