Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger appears to be on the hot seat, according to a recent report from ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, because of the way his team has looked in losses. It’s still very early in the season, but reports of these kind are not unusual in the NBA. The league always has a large turnover in head coaching positions year-to-year and moves often happen during the season.
With style, tempo and chemistry being large focuses in the league, front offices look to shake things up if a team is struggling. Sometimes, the easiest — and least expensive — way to do that and send a message is by relieving the head coach.
That leads us to tonight’s shootaround topic: Which head coach is occupying the warmest seat right now?
This is just me speculating, but Nets coach Lionel Hollins comes to mind because not only is Brooklyn without a win, the team has been blown out in several games.
