Thunder Finally Fire Carlesimo

Jason GendronContributor INovember 22, 2008

The Oklahoma City Thunder finally did NBA fans a favor and rid the league of coach P.J. Carlesimo on Friday Night.

GM Sam Presti notified Carlesimo of the decision after a 105-80 loss to New Orleans on Friday, in which his team was never in the game.

Not to beat a dead horse here, but shouldn't this change have been made after last season, before the team relocated to Oklahoma City? It's bad enough that these fans inherit a bad team, but a bad coach as well? I mean, come on, the Supersonics went 20-62 under Carlesimo last season and he has never had success as a head coach.

If you ask me, it's a change that took to long to be made.
