    Pistons Fire Maurice Cheeks

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/pistons-fire-coach-maurice-cheeks-165831433.html

    The Detroit Pistons have fired coach Maurice Cheeks, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

    Despite back-to-back victories on the weekend, general manager Joe Dumars informed Cheeks of his dismissal on Sunday morning, sources said.

    Cheeks didn't make it to the All-Star break of his first season as Detroit's coach.

    In a season that has fallen short of playoff expectations, Detroit owner Tom Gores has been pushing for changes, league sources said. Detroit is 21-29 and a half-game behind Charlotte for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff chase.

    I'm surprised he didn't make it till the end of the season. Dumars is next for sure.

    Good move. I maintain that he and Mike Brown are the worst in the league.

    Dumars better sort this out or he should be next.


    I made 3 season win totals bets this year, and one was Detroit UNDER. That roster just does not work. I like the idea of making those 3 big men just play 32 minutes a game so all three are never on the court at the same time, but that doesn't solve their frequent back court/shooting woes. They obviously have a nice core, they've just filled in the other pieces so poorly.

    TBh I didn't see him as the biggest problem more the roster make up and GM . But I guess it'd thr coach that's always the first to go .

    Not saying it's a bad move, but you put together a bunch of low iq players I'm not really sure what results the team expects to get.

    Pistons have been amazing at bringing in players who think there superstars, and are not.

    It's a bit random after blowing out two teams in a row, two games in which Smith and Jennings shined pretty brightly.

    He also made the move to bring Singler into the starting line up which the team has responded well to for the most part.

    How will this do more harm than good? Cheeks is a horrible coach and his lineup rotations are insanely stupid.
