Sacramento Kings Fire Coach Despite Solid Start

The NBA was shocked to hear that the Sacramento Kings fired their head coach Mike Malone. Sacramento is currently tied for its best start through 24 games in a decade and that was without DeMarcus Cousins for a 3rd of them. The Kings are exceeding all expectations right now but the Kings have fired him saying that he was not "special." Malone showed this season that he was doing a great job developing players. Nearly all of his players are exceeding expectations and he has certainly cast a defensive aura around the team. People will surely remember that the Timberwolves did the same thing to Dwane Casey during the 2006-2007 season even though the Wolves were 20-20. After firing Casey, the Twolves have not reached .500 for the last 7 years. What do you guys make out of this?

@Goyo That would make sense if they actually had the coach already lined up... but it seems to me that they don't have anyone yet! What was the point of already firing him?!
@shake600 what do you mean? @EightyNine that is definitely a good point, but maybe they do... lol
Idk
@EightyNine I understand your point. What I am saying is that the Kings decision does have reason if they believed he was not the future, as far as coaching goes for them. If they believed that he would blossom into a top 5 coach, then they should keep him. If not, why not try to find that star coach sooner rather than later?
I think it was a terrible decision. As a Warriors fan, Mike Malone changed the culture of the teams defense. He was the one that established the foundation and look how well the Warriors play defense now. Changing the culture is so important and I think the Kings made a big big mistake.

Steph Curry Broke The Way Video Games Are Made
I know that title seems a little hyperbolic but it's absolutely, 100% true. If you know anything about basketball or if you're friends with anyone who knows anything about basketball, then they probably talk about how much of a beast Steph Curry is on the court. He hits 3-pointers from way beyond the arc and he's consistent with it. And I can see the look on your face, you're like, "Paul what the fuck does this have to do with video games?" Well, Curry's performance this season (in real life) has just broken the way NBA2K builds their video games. In a recent interview with Forbes, Mike Wang (gameplay director of the NBA2K games) said, that they're "looking for new ways to translate his [Curry's] game into 2K". As an avid fan and player of the NBA2K games, I know first hand that they've come up with formulas and rules for the game so the game feels like a realistic basketball game. In the most recent iteration, shot selection is a big factor in making shots. But -- if you watch Curry play -- his shot selection is, sometimes, insane. But that doesn't translate to the video game, like, at all. ESPN even ran an article titled, "Real-life Stephen Curry is better than video-game Stephen Curry" which compares Curry's real stats to simulated video game stats and Steph Curry in real life does consistently better than the video game version of him. And it seems like the next iteration of the NBA2K series will have some careful consideration when they start designing the way Curry plays in-game. If you watch the first minute of the video above (which is from a game that just happened a couple of days ago), you'll see Curry make a 3-point shot with two defenders on him. If you were to do this in NBA2K as Steph Curry, you'd most likely miss. It's insane to me that because of his skill, the people that work on 2K have to develop new ways to deal with his on-court skill. It's kind of insane (and awesome and amazing) to me that Stepch Curry is better than an artificial version of himself who, by all means, should be better. Mostly because it's an AI that doesn't get tired or have thoughts or anything else like that. It's kind of breathtaking, to be honest. And I'm sort of happy to be alive during this sports-historic moment in time. All of that being said, I guess the color-commentators need to stop comparing Curry's skill to something that's "video game-like" instead of saying it's unbelievable because, well, the best basketball video game (and its developer) can't believe it either.

Sooner the better Start with searching for a good lawyer as early as possible, better within a week or two, after the accident.

Also, never give a recorded statement to a representative of the insurance company or anyone else without consulting your lawyer.
