Basketball Betting Online Favorite Coaches to Get Fired

Posted by: Charlie Smith

Former Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger was the last NBA coach to be fired, more than a year ago – that’s a long time for basketball betting online, and for those fans who enjoy the odd combination of NBA betting online and NASCAR, here are a few potential car crashes for next season.

Jeffrey John Hornacek

One would think that Phil Jackson’s exit from the New York Knicks would bring some semblance of stability to Madison Square Garden. However, the madness runs much deeper than it was initially believed, as evinced by the signing of Tim Hardaway, Jr. to a four-year, $71 million contract. The Knicks seem hell-bent on doing things the Hardaway instead of the Easyaway. Horny had a promising start in New York with a 16-13 record, but the Knicks fell to the usual pitfalls and finished 31-51. The team has had six different head coaches since in the last decade and it would take nothing short of a basketball guru (but didn’t they have one of those already?) to make some sense out of the utter chaos that are the Knicks.

Fredrick Kristian Hoiberg

The Chicago Bulls replaced Tom Thibodeau with Fred Hoiberg because they wanted a “change in approach.” If the change was meant to be for the worse, then Hoiberg has delivered in spades. In his maiden season in Chicago the Bulls missed the postseason for the first time in eight years, and they blew a 2-0 lead in the first round of the playoffs against the Celtics in the 2017 playoffs. ESPN ranked Hoiberg as the worst coach in the NBA in March 2017. But that’s probably not what the Bulls had in mind, and that’s why Hoiberg’s basketball betting online odds of getting the sack are pretty good – or bad, as the case may be.

Alvin Harris Gentry

Ask the local gentry and they will say it’s elementary. Gentry was fired from the Los Angeles Clippers in February 2003 after failing twice in a row to take the team to the playoffs. Then he was fired from. Approximately ten years later he was fired from the Phoenix
Suns for failing twice in a row to take the team to the playoffs. Starting to see a pattern here? As it turns out, Gentry has failed twice in a row to take the New Orleans Pelicans to the playoffs, so you do the math.

Dwane Casey

Casey has coached the Toronto Raptors longer than any other coach in the league with the exceptions of Rick Carlisle, Erik Spoelstra, and Gregg Popovich. In his six seasons in Toronto the Raptors have been neither very good nor very bad. They have made the postseason four straight years but have been eliminated by the Cavs the last two times. If the Toronto brass likes the status quo then Casey will have a job as long as the Raps remain the fourth best team in the East, but if not, his basketball betting online do not look too good for his continuance.
