Brooklyn Nets fire coach Kenny Atkinson
This is pretty brutal Atkinson has the Nets sitting 7th in the East without Durant all season and only 20 games from Irving and they beat the Spurs 139-120 in what was his last game as coach. Jacque Vaughan takes over for the rest of the season.
There are only two players within the organization who have that kind of power: Irving and Durant. At the very least, if they wanted him as coach he would be the coach.
Always been the biggest problem with the NBA the inmates run the asylum.
