The only reason I want Mark Jackson to be part of our staff so I can see who can preach the loudest: Mark Jackson or Doc Rivers
I don't think that's true. Hollins was fired because he bumped heads with the new FO. He made a stink about trading Gay. He was a dead man walking even if they made the finals.
Firing a coach for losing to a better Spurs team doesn't make much sense. From the following at the time it is because he had issues with the FO like joe said.
