    Wasn't he fairly successful in Memphis when he got axe after 3 years?

    Is his rep that of a hard ass coach? If so that may explain why both his coaching stints ended so shortly

    Only thing that would make sense here

    The Kangz return?

    He might have a difficult time getting along with his bosses but this still doesn't seem like a good idea unless they can find someone better. He's a good coach and did well with an up and coming Kings team.

    edit:



    I think both guys are/can be good coaches but they're not better than Joerger.

    pretty shocked they'd fire him after their best season in quite some time. and i call BS on walton being the frontrunner. if they want the team to take 5 steps back they should consider hiring walton

    and i highly doubt the spurs will want to part ways with messina. he's supposed to be pop's heir

    Can't wait to see him coach his next team into a 2 seed in the West.

    Kings really suck at this coaching thing.

    Whats that now, 9 coaches hired and fired in the last 12 years?

    The Kings want to play an uptempo style and that isn't really Joerger's thing. These two respect one another, and the timing of this isn't like it was in the dysfunctional days. Joerger was offered a 1-yr extension during the season and I don't know if he ever actually signed it.

    Vlade calls the shots on this team now and has done everything right over the past 2 years. Get your shots in at the Kings now, guys, because next year we're going to kick your team's asses.

    Walton is a Kerr disciple. Walton can't run that system with the way the Lakers are set up, but not even the Warriors would be able to keep up with this Kings roster if they played the same style.

    I don't know why he got fired in Memphis but that franchise fired Lionel Hollins after he took them to the Conference Finals for the first (and to date only) time ever, and then they fired Fizdale after he took them to the playoffs when they were expected to be a lottery team. And Sacramento hasn't exactly been stable ground even under Ranadives ownership.
