Call in and let your voice be heard!
The bad news for Monty Williams was good news for the rest of the NBA.
There is now a strong chance that Anthony Davis leaves New Orleans and becomes an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2017.
That is the ultimate fallout from Tuesday's shocking news that the Pelicans had fired Williams after he led them to the Western Conference playoffs, where they were swept by the Golden State Warriors. The firing came a mere two weeks after owner Tom Benson wrote a public letter to Williams, general manager Dell Demps and the rest of the organization congratulating them on their achievement.
So what the heck happened in the interim?
Clear, concise answers were not forthcoming from front office executive Mickey Loomis, whose fingerprints are all over this move. Loomis, who also is the front-office overseer for Benson's other team, the NFL New Orleans Saints, is a guy who believes in organizational charts. In his mind, the coach should report to the general manager, and the GM should report to the owner. That was the the case in New Orleans, where Williams and Demps were on equal footing on the organizational chart.
And in the twisted mind of Loomis, if you don't have a functional organizational chart, you don't have a fully functional organization.
So he fired Williams.
It is a fascinating story, and it will remain a fascinating story for the next several years because Davis is not going to forget how this hatchet job went down. Last time a player of his caliber had this type of beef with management/ownership, he got himself shipped out of town. You may have heard of the guy: Chris Paul.
And in my crystal ball, I foresee Anthony Davis becoming the next Chris Paul.
More in this interview with Kristian Garic and T-Bob Hebert on WWL Radio in New Orleans, the Pelicans' flagship station.
