While no league can hold a candle to the job turnover in the NFL today, the NBA does well in that department. The NBA coaching carousel goes around every summer, and many guys ultimately end up with second and third chances. There are very few long-term NBA coaches these days.
So who are the coaches on the verge of being fired in 2014? Here's a look at five who are sitting on hot seats right now:
It's only been one season in Milwaukee, but man, has it been a terrible one. The 76ers have lost 25 straight games and the Bucks are still in last place in the EC. Drew could be brought back next year, but a historically bad season is always grounds for a firing.
Malone comes in at No. 4 mainly because, just like Drew, he's only been at the helm for one year in Sacramento. His chances of being canned aren't great, but they are real -- the Kings are the third worst team in the West. Who knows exactly how much pull Shaq has with the Kings, but if he's not onboard with Malone, it could impact the future of their head coaching position.
The Timberwolves have let down their fans once again in 2013-14 (unlikely to make playoffs), and one way or another, Adelman is likely done in the land of 10,000 lakes. There have been reports that he might retire, but if he doesn't, don't be surprised to see him get handed a pink slip.
We might as well start an official countdown to the day it's announced that Woodson has been fired by the Knicks. Even if they somehow squeak into the playoffs, I still give Woodson zero chance of being retained. Phil Jackson will want to start fresh and its clear that many current Knicks players don't subscribe to what Woodson is selling.
To say that the Lakers blew it with the hiring of D'Antoni, would be a huge understatement. They claimed that he was the better coach for the 2012-13 Lakers because of his system, but we all see how that worked out. There is no world where Mike D'Antoni is a better option than Phil Jackson. You lose L.A.
Where the Lakers turn next, is anyone's guess...
