Wow, Scott Skiles fired

Postby big.d57 » Tue Jan 08, 2013 6:54 am

USA Today's Sam Amick reported Monday night that the Bucks and Scott Skiles will part ways.
First off, whoa. Second off, wow. One of fantasy basketball's most infuriating coaches goes by the wayside, which will kick off all sorts of speculation about the direction of the club, and we'll start off with the player we listed this blurb under, Ersan Ilyasova. Ilyasova, like many of his teammates, has had his confidence crushed under Skiles' belief he can outsmart the game with his incessant toiling. With his big contract, E.I. is as well-positioned as he can be to turn around his season. Brandon Jennings, Monta Ellis are safe assets and Larry Sanders is all-but certain to join that group, while John Henson and Mike Dunleavy are also well worth a look if they aren't owned.

Asked for a buyout this summer on the final year of his deal, then recently said he didn't want an extension after this season. Was coming. ;-)

I wasn't in love with Skiles when he was in Chicago and clearly Milwaukee is under performing a bit. Lots of talent there and maybe some bad coaching choices on occasion with personnel and bigs.

I like Skiles a lot as a coach, but he wears out his welcome everywhere he goes. I'm not surprised in the least.

Skiles ultimate destination might be as a college head coach. He can't wear on the players since they'll only be there for 4 years or less. On the other hand, he would probably wear out his welcome with administration eventually.
Yes, Warriors sold at last!
