Pistons can Curry

RedsArmyAdmin June 30, 2009 Uncategorized 5 Comments

This was unexpected.

Pistons coach Michael Curry has been fired, the team announced Tuesday.
"This was a difficult decision to make," Pistons president Joe Dumars
said. "I want to thank Michael for his hard work and dedication to the
organization. However, at this time, I have decided to make a change."

This is one of those "there's more to this story" stories.  I don't think anyone would have expected the Pistons to do more than they did with what they had.  For him to get canned after one season is weird.

    Curry couldn’t keep his players in check and Dumars should fire himself for not drafting Wade, Bosh and Melo (Drafted Darko) – Dealing away Billups for AI… ETC. Life in the NBA I guess.

    I will never understand firing a coach after one year unless of curse he is something like 10-72.

    Hey gang,
    I live in Michigan and there wasn’t really much talk about Curry getting the boot in the media. That said, are you really surprised by this news? The guy was not liked by his players. He had no definitive coaching style, and the team is in desperate need of landing some free agents. At the end of last season, I thought, there were three absolutes; ‘Sheed would be gone, AI would be gone and unless the team came together magically and made a play off run Curry was gone.

    He never had that team at all and did a miserable job all season imo, Joe Dumars said he would stick by him regardless…obviously he mustve met with some players and they want him gone…. I dont know though, that certain group of players became uncoachable once Larry Brown left

    I’m surprised it took Dumars so long to fire him. From a blog post of mine in April:
    “I’d love for the Celtics to put the Pistons out of their misery. I can see Rasheed Wallace quitting after falling down 2-0 and jawing with lame duck coach Michael Curry on the bench, can’t you?”
