The Detroit Pistons have fired
the wrong guy Maurice Cheeks after the team’s vastly underwhelming 21-29 start. It’s a little bit surprising considering the Pistons are just a half game out of the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference, but for a team that spent a bunch of money, they were expecting much more.
Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings didn’t seem like a good fit to begin with and surprise — they aren’t. Whoever the new coach ends up being (Coach Sheed, anyone?), they’re going to have a lot of work to do getting these guys to mesh. Suffice to say it isn’t the most attractive job in the world, with Joe Dumars seemingly rifling through the bargain bin to find coaches.
With Cheeks the first domino to fall, who else is on the hot seat, ready to go?
