The 2013-14 NBA season is winding down, and it is time to offer critical analysis of certain coaches. Many will find themselves on the hot seat for failing to put their team in the best position to win.
Here are five coaches who have not lived up to expectations with their respected teams and deserve to be fired in the offseason.

The Sacramento Kings have way too much talent to be 22-41 on the season. Malone has failed to handle star players properly and hasn't been able to get the best out of DeMarcus Cousins or even keep tabs on his attitude. The Kings have potential to be a good team, but they need someone else to run the show.

Rick Adelman just does not have it anymore. He was once a terrific coach, but the Minnesota Timberwolves need to go in a different direction. After a terrific start, Adelman hasn't been able to keep them steady throughout the season.

3. Mike Brown

The Cleveland Cavaliers should be in the playoffs this season. However, Mike Brown has done a horrific job handling his players and helping them mesh as a team. Brown is not the right guy that Cleveland needs to lead and their young team. They have plenty of talent to be in the playoffs in the East, but Brown has certainly held them back.

2. Mike D'Antoni

I don't know why the Los Angeles Lakers decided to hire D'Antoni in the first place. He is not a championship-caliber coach and he doesn't fit in the Lakers' system. The Lakers should have looked at a much younger, promising coach last year like the Boston Celtics have done.

The New York Knicks are a complete and utter disaster. Mike Woodson deserves some of that blame. Yes, there have been numerous injuries, but this team should be a top-five team in the Eastern Conference especially after such great success last season. Woodson is not handling his players correctly and hasn't put them in the best position to win. He absolutely needs to be fired at season's end,
