Forbes says that the average NBA Team is worth a record $1.1 billion. Are they guilty of valuing the franchises too high? The NBA might think so. Our esteemed court room takes up the case.
This season, four NBA franchises have changed head coaches. These types of coaching changes occur when a team is struggling and failing to meet expectations, whether those expectations were realistic or not. Either that, or a head coach doesn’t get along with his player(s). Most of the time I’m not a fan of midseason coaching changes. To me it’s like trying to fix a brick wall with scotch tape. When a team struggles the reasons for the struggle go beyond just bad coaching. Sure, coaching could be part of it, but a sub-talented roster or bad chemistry could also be part of the reasons too. That being said, coaches are always easier to remove than players and I thought now would be a good time to examine the teams that have changed coaches both before and after the change happened.
