6. Even when you win, you lose.
Monty Williams was fired by the New Orleans Pelicans after getting the team to the playoffs for the first time in years. They have arguably a top-5 player in the NBA in Anthony Davis, a nucleus of young players that can be developed or traded for veteran players, and a great city to play for. Yet the organization felt the team wasn’t getting better at a great pace. Williams was told at the beginning of the season that if he didn’t make the playoffs he would be fired. Guess management changed their mind. Monty will hopefully find a new gig but the question now is, can any coach trust the management in NOLA?
