NBA Hot Seat: Predicting the Next 10 Head Coaches To Be Fired

Nobody likes losing. It stinks.

When you're shelling out millions of dollars on a basketball team, you're probably more displeased with it than most.

NBA coaches get hired, fired, then re-hired every year. Sometimes we see it coming, sometimes we can't believe a guy just got canned.

I hear you asking yourself, "Of the 30 people currently employed as head coaches in the NBA, which are most likely to be checking the classifieds soon?"

Now, if I were to attempt to project what will happen in three years, I could probably find a way to say that every coach is in danger. For your sake and mine, I won't be doing that.

Instead, let's take a look at the 10 coaches most likely to be fired during, or immediately following, this season.

It's still very early in the year and many things could obviously change, but based on the events of this young season, these are the guys soon to be hearing rumors.

Just for fun, I'll throw Erik Spoelstra of the Miami Heat in there.  A lot of people are wondering if he's going to get the Stan Van Gundy treatment and "resign" from his position at some point this year, giving way to Pat Riley.

Riley has said that he has no intention of coaching again and that Spoelstra is a fine, young coach who can take the team to the promised land, but Van Gundy had the team on its way to the playoffs when he stepped down after visiting the Eastern Finals the previous season.

Hey, you never know.
