Iguodala apparently said last night that they gave up. I don't know if it was in those words, they mentioned it on the radio. I didn't hear about it until someone told me at the Flyers game.
Sam Donellon brings up an interesting point -- Ed Stafanski said Mo got rewarded for the run to the playoffs...not that they thought he was the guy to lead the team.
I didn't realize Mo was the coach for 4 seasons. It is his job to bring the team together, but Mo Cheeks wasn't the one who gave Iguodala $90M and Dalembert like $70B. On Mo Cheeks though, it didn't seem like he used the bench the way it was intended to. Rush, Marshall and Ivy are supposed to be decent specific role players. Now they're bringing the assistant GM down...a guy who hasn't been a head coach at any level in 18 years (in West Germany). I never even heard of Tony DiLeo.
