Sixers Fire Mo Cheeks

cheeksAdd Maurice Cheeks to the list of coaches relieved of their duties by an NBA team this season. After a 9-14 start to the season, the Philadelphia 76ers decided that a coaching change was in order. He becomes the 5th coach released before Christmas. To the teams credit, they gave him every opportunity to turn the ship around in Philly by extending his contract twice in the past year. But after spending big money on Andre Iguodala and bringing in Elton Brand via free agency, it was clear that the organization wanted to win now and that wasn’t happening. It sucks for Maurice Cheeks I’m sure, but I’m OK with this move because like I said, they gave him every chance in the world to fix things which shows a lot of class on the part of the 76ers.
