okay i can understand he doesnt have a full roster with harris and douglas roberts out. but come on now 0-8. i think frank did a nice job coaching the nets when he took over for scott. but thats when he had kidd, martin and jefferson. now hes coaching a young rebuilding team. i dont think hes a coach who can build a team. he needs to be around playoff teams. his overall record is 209-201. in six seasons. i just think its time for a change. if the nets are serious about winning, and going to brooklyn and signing a big time player or putting a winner team out there. now is the time and go hire a avery johnson, hell even give mark jackons a chance. someone who can install discipline in these young guys. let me know what you think.
Why does the blame always go to the coaches? Even with a full roster it would be unfair to expect the current Nets roster to be sucessful. Frank is a good coach and the players seem to like him (I'm basing this on absolutly nothing).
Why cause more chemistry problems?
Getting rid of vince was a cost cutting move that sent them into rebuilding mode. Not having Harris as well as Jianlian who started well hurts. They are actually competing well in some close games. I'm not ready to axe him already.
Yes the Nets are in a rebuilding year..But unlike most teams thats starting over...The Nets have 2 AllStar caliber players in Harris & Lopez at point guard & center..The 2 most important positions on a team...Plus CDR was having a good start to the season until he caught the swine flu..Yi has been out alot..Plus they really dont have much depth...But despite it not all being Frank's fault..I dont expect to see him lasting the season as their coach..Dont feel sorry that he'll be out of a job..Maybe he can make a living impersonating Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings....
Frank is a good coach but look what they did to Scott they fired him the season from they went to the finals. They are giving Frank a lot of chances so lets see what he does with them
Don't fire him yet man. He's having to work in some pretty tough conditions and he is a good coach. Saying that though if he gets Harris, CDR, Yi and Brook into the starting line-up and they still can't win then he will be in trouble.
yeah its just you..the nets are the walking dead...with harris injured and vince traded with a couple others being injured they arent gonna be that good. frank is safe though becaue the owner came out and said this was expected with the injuries and vince being gone
He should be fired.
They had Harris, Lopez, Carter and 34 wins with Kidd, RJ, Carter the year before too.
He's never gotten past the 2nd round with Carter, Kidd, RJ trio.
yeah but he has gotten to the finals and they are rebuilding..the nets were a after thought before he got there with no really good players really wanting to play there..this is why alot of teams never make it they dont stick with coachs through the good and the bad..thats why organizations like the spurs and utah are good they stick wit there coach through the good and the bad..plus other then last 2 years(which was known to be the start of the rebuilding years) hes kept them above 500..just like how the hawks are rising now a couple years ago they were pretty bad as i recall while rebuilding
Um... Lawrence Frank has NEVER taken the Nets to the NBA Finals. You have him confused with Byron Scott. The Nets were an afterthought before Byron Scott got there, NOT Lawrence Frank.
I think he should be fired. He overachieved during his first season after he took over for Byron Scott (25-15 record), but other than going 49-33 in 2005-2006, the Nets have underachieved in the regular season and had basically a .500 record every season. He's never taken the Nets past the second round, like NYK2010 said. I don't know what you're talking about Quincey... He's NEVER been to the NBA Finals.
The last two seasons the Nets have finished 34-48 and missed the playoffs. Yes, he should be fired. He's a good coach, but it's time to get a new face in there... A fresh start.
i ment coach scott with that one..not sure how they underachive when they werent expected to get that far since hes taken over..you underachive when you get further then what was expected of you...as long as the gm doesnt think he needs to get fired hes safe which is whats the case righ tnow...but ya'll are more then welcome to want him fired..everyone is intitled to there opinion
I like how you got mad and gave me a negative from each of your nbadraft.net accounts because you felt stupid I blasted you on your lack of knowledge. Then you gave yourself two points for your last post lol. Hilarious.
whats funny is i did give my self a poitn but i didnt take any points from you..i dont take points..i give myself one if someone takes my points just for not agreeing wit me or i give others points but i never take em...sorry
"YEAH BUT HE HAS GOTTEN TO THE FINALS and they are rebuilding..THE NETS WERE A AFTER THOUGHT BEFORE HE GOT THERE WITH NO REALLY GOOD PLAYERS WANTING TO PLAY THERE..this is why alot of teams never make it they dont stick with coachs through the good and the bad..thats why organizations like the spurs and utah are good they stick wit there coach through the good and the bad..plus other then last 2 years(which was known to be the start of the rebuilding years) HES KEPT THEM ABOVE .500..just like how the hawks are rising now a couple years ago they were pretty bad as i recall while rebuilding"
Everything you said there shows a lack of basketball knowledge. Who'd give you any points or credit for saying that other than yourself lol?
It's all good... I aired his ass out and I'm going to keep calling him out on his fraudulent knowledge.
it takes 2 much energy impo
but if im so wrong how come hes not fired and the gm said his postion is safe???..hmmmmmm seems like im correct in saying he shouldnt be fired...i also recall saying i made a mistake about frank leadin g them..and do you really have to ask about points..how lon ghave you been up here and see peopel lose points just for saying something like "kobe is a pretty good player"..as i recall even you complained about why you lost points for saying something in another post that was true, am i correct?
and youre still talking bum sauce...you have the nerve to call someone lier after you told everyone on here that you were playing in the d leauge this year and that youre invited to the nba draft for next year and that youre better then all these other pg that actually has scholarships to colleges and that you are a 6'7 pg but now claiming youre a 6'5 pg then claiming youre any good at all...lol....YOURE A BUM
AS FAR AS TEZO..YOU GOTTA STOP BEING SO MAD BBECAUSE YOURE CLIPPERS are still one of the worst teams in the history of sports and will continue to be...they say you build a good team trhough the draft and other things but the clippers have build a house in the draft yet they continue to be sorry..even the kings are better then ya'll...THE KINGS..i think my mission this year will be to step on the clippers every chance i get because they suck
i said I was trying out for the d-league

For ceQuincey the Grouch
Two starving bums
These two starving bums are walking through an alley when one of them sees a dead cat.
One runs over, sits down and starts to eat the cat, tearing the meat from its limbs.
He says to the other bum (quincey), "Hey, I know you're hungry, too. Why don't you eat some of this cat?"
"Hell no!!!" replies the second bum, "That cat's been dead for days, he's all stiff and cold and smelly!"
The first bum says, "Okay, suit yourself," and continues to eat everything, skin, muscle, guts, all but the skeleton.
A few hours later as they are walking down the street the first bum says, "Oh, I don't feel so good. I think there might have been something wrong with that cat."
And just then, he pukes up a huge puddle of rotten cat flesh and guts with stomach bile mixed in, all half digested and looking like mush.
Quincey Hodges sits down next to the puddle and says, "Now you're talkin'! It's been months since I had a WARM meal!!!"
BUM SAUCE..LOL...YOU CAN TALK ALL YOU WANT BUT YOURE SORRY GAME SPEAKS ALOT LOUDER...lol..its gotta hurt that youre never gonn abe any better then the average local ymca guy
grow up little man
i will once you get a game bum sauce
Why fire the guy? That's a Memphis move in my opinion. After trading Vince, I thought this team was lucky to bag 20 wins this season. They have solid pieces in Lopez, Harris, and Lee. Add in the draft where they can get another big man to go with Lopez, and a huge free agent pool and this team can be a force in the East next season. Let the coach rebuild with the team. It worked with Portland and soon Oklahoma City.
grow up little man
thats why the gm isnt gonna fire him...its just soem of these guys personal opinions thats all
