    IT HAPPENED!!!

    Don't know why after 2 good victories, but it finally happened.

    I'm concerned as everybody about who'll be the next guy, but Cheeks wasn't the right guy.

    I wasn't sure if this was a joke or not at first.

    So he gets canned after two straight wins. Who's next? Who's out there?

    I'm actually very surprised...2 games before All-Star break, after 2 wins?

    I'm getting the feeling that Gores called for this one...and JD carried it out.

    This had to be a Gores decision that was probably made after the Magic loss and Joe had to carry out despite the last 2 wins. Or Mo went against Joe's tanking plan by winning the last two.

    Then maybe him benching Monroe in the 4th quarters or only playing his # 1 pick KCP 10 minutes a game did him in...or his spat with Gores nephew Bynum :) sealed his fate....or maybe because they almost blew those last wins...

    Still it would seem like they would already have a coach in the wings to do it so abruptly after winning those last two games.

    It has to be either Laimbeer, Phil Jackson or Lionel Hollins to take over IMO.

    Didn't Joe offer Hollins to be Cheeks assistant?

    The pitch for Lionel Hollins as new Pistons coach will be made, I'm told, & it's a good one. Tough, smart leader could help disjointed group
