Grizzlies Fire Head Coach David Fizdale After 101 Games

Grizzlies Fire Head Coach David Fizdale After 101 Games

LeBron James said that "everybody in the basketball world" was shocked by the firing of Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale on Monday. Fizdale said taking a risk as head coach means sometimes upsetting a player or two. Fizdale was sacked on Monday following a run of eight straight losses.

Sunday's benching did not sit well with the younger Gasol, who told reporters afterward he was "more angry that I can show".

The former Grizzlies coach made a huge mistake by sitting out a struggling Marc Gasol throughout the fourth quarter, opting instead to ride the hot hand of his small ball lineup, but failing to yield the right results, as his team proved unable to overcome a 14-point deficit to start the quarter, resulting in an eighth consecutive loss.

"Losing in this league and not meeting expectations in this league takes its toll on everybody", Stotts said before a game in NY.

Fizdale became the franchise's 13th head coach on May 29, 2016, and he went 50-51.

Marc Gasol is Memphis' lone upright star, with point guard Mike Conley injured and longtime forward Zach Randolph and shooting guard Tony Allen having been shipped to other destinations during the offseason.

Pau Gasol, who spent his first 6 1/2 National Basketball Association seasons in Memphis, said he empathized with his younger brother. Now Fizdale is the second National Basketball Association coach fired this season, joining Earl Watson, who was sacked by Phoenix three games into the season.

Bickerstaff, who spent five seasons with the Rockets (2011-16), also served as an assistant coach with the Charlotte Bobcats (2004-07) and Minnesota Timberwolves (2007-11).
