That’s what happened to Skiles in Phoenix, if you recall. A coaching career that began promisingly, with a dethroning of defending champion San Antonio in the spring of 2000, ended with a mutual parting of ways 22 months later. To this day, Suns insiders say he irritated Jason Kidd and others with his demanding, grinding style. Skiles says that’s a lot of bunk, claiming he was young in the job (35 when hired) and still learning how to handle in-house NBA politics. But there’s no getting around that his team wasn’t playing hard for him and wasn’t having fun.
It is hilarious that F***tard supposedly spent time on this useless garbage while allegedly awaiting Game 2 in Auburn Hills.
The Bulls get shellacked in Game 1 and lo and behold, here is F***tard flip-flopping on the coach and banging the drum (along with a certain blow up doll) for insinuating that Skiles no longer has control of his team by “recounting"* the end of his days in Phoenix.
All this after sweeping the world champs but losing 1 stupid playoff game.
F***tard + “NBA Analysis"* = Springer + Trailer White Trash Gossip
And worse? The one player Skiles felt gave a sufficient Game 1 effort, Ben Wallace, isn’t outwardly acting like a spurned former employee who wants to tear out the spleens of the Detroit Pistons. I understand the NBA postseason isn’t the war in Iraq, but must Wallace soften the magnitude of the series by mentioning that some of his former teammates didn’t join him for their usual dinner and card games Friday night? Is this really the time to be fraternizing, when the Bulls have $60 million invested for these very situations and his legacy will be judged in part on how he fares against his old team?
Normally F***tard is riled up over African American athletes acting like barbarians and “thugs” (uhh Tank Johnson anyone?) on and off the field.
And yet Wallace gets called out (did this really need to be printed?) by F***tard (of all people) as “soft”? Did the blow up doll not put out over the weekend?
So now, $60 million is a lot of money. A few days ago, it was a bargain and chump change. F***tard economics is very strange indeed.
But the worst of the worst is even mentioning Iraq in this context. Why even bother?
What a waste of money on the F***tard-Times part to allow this douchebag to travel on the company dime.
Fire the F***tard.
