Report: Relations Between Thibodeau & Management “Beyond Repair”

Tom Thibodeau

Last week, there were conflicting reports Tom Thibodeau had lost his locker room and was in danger of getting canned before the remaining two years on his contract were fulfilled.

Okay, he probably doesn’t do that. The man has buckets of money. He sleeps fine at night. But he still says the team listened too much to Michael about his body, and ended up taking a risk by bringing him back before the doctors said he was ready.

LeBron James Is Not The Biggest NBA Free Agent This Summer

While Phil Jackson is still trying to figure out Phoenix’s zone defense in time for Game 5 tonight, his name is being circulated wildly in coaching rumors.
