Memphis Grizzlies Fire Head Coach David Fizdale

Memphis Grizzlies Fire Head Coach David Fizdaleā€

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are bothered by the news of David Fizdale's firing by the Memphis Grizzlies.

This question was answered emphatically today, as the organization relieved Fizdale of his coaching duties, promoting assistant J.B. Bickerstaff to the interim position, much like he was after Kevin McHale was sacked by the Houston Rockets. What's more, Fizdale led the Grizzlies to the playoffs in his first season with a 43-39 record, and they pushed the San Antonio Spurs in a competitive six-game series. The franchise cornerstone was benched by Fizdale in the fourth quarter of the team's last game. I'm sure they knew that would hurt me the most.

"After a thorough evaluation, I decided a change in course was necessary to move forward and provide the team and organization its best chance at success this season and beyond", Wallace said.

Fizdale is bound to find another opportunity in the National Basketball Association, but after becoming the second coach to be fired this National Basketball Association season, it might take some time for openings to become available.

A frustrated Gasol watched as Fizdale's unit rallied within four points with eight minutes to go, but ultimately wasn't able to take down the Brooklyn Nets, falling 98-88 to mark their eighth straight loss. The Grizzlies' 5-1 start to the season was unraveling even before guard Mike Conley was sidelined over a week ago with an Achilles tendon injury. The Grizzlies stood atop the Western Conference with a win over the Golden State Warriors and two over Southwest Division rival Houston.

He also was an assistant coach with Minnesota and in Charlotte under his father, Bernie Bickerstaff.
