LeBron James, Dwyane Wade not happy about David Fizdale firing

Grizzlies Vs Nets NBA Game Preview Starting Lineups TV Time Stats 11/26/2017

The Grizz fired head coach David Fizdale on Monday, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Now Fizdale is the second National Basketball Association coach fired this season, joining Earl Watson, who was sacked by Phoenix three games into the season.

Spurs center Pau Gasol, Marc's older brother, believes those two facts to be unrelated.

"It's weird, the timing of it". Like, this is what happens, you lose when your best players are out and when your whole team is wiped out. And for much of that stretch, they've been without star point guard Mike Conley.

The Grizzlies' are clearly in rebuilding mode.

"That's what I value the most", Gasol said.

Fizdale was sacked after a 7-12 start to the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season, but previous year he led the Grizzlies to a 43-39 record during the regular season which was good enough to get the Grizzlies into the Western Conference playoffs. "Marc is a competitor and he wants to play".

Gasol added that being in competitive situations, such as the fourth quarter of a close game, is what fuels him. Memphis is in San Antonio on Wednesday.

Fizdale said that benching Gasol was nothing personal against his All-Star center, but he felt the players who were in the game gave the Grizz the best chance of winning.

"They've been struggling, lost eight in a row", Pau Gasol said.

"I hate not playing".

Bickerstaff, who served as Memphis' associate head coach, posted a 37-34 mark as an interim coach with the Houston Rockets in 2015-16.

"At the end of the day this is a business and you've got to make decisions not just for the present but also going forward", Gasol said.
