Was talking to a friend 3 days ago and said he'd be fired within the next two weeks if they still looked bad. I guess Kupchak and co were even quicker to strike than I expected haha.
On a serious note, it's probably the right move. You can bet your house that Phil Jackson will be #1 on the shortlist. It's just a matter of whether he wants the job or not. Put yourself in his shoes, Kupchak pitches to him "A chance to coach a team in the city you live in. An opportunity to go and get a final title for Kobe before he retires, giving the show over to the best C in the league at a time when we will have a payroll low enough to bring in another elite player in free agency 2014, possibly LeBron."
Would take a lot for him to pass it up.
