Should the Kings Fire George Karl?

It’s that time again, actually, it’s always that time with the Sacramento Kings, but it looks like the team is now considering the idea of firing George Karl.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Kings ramped up the firing of George Karl after an extremely disappointing 128-119 loss to the Brooklyn Nets. It is believed the Kings will, at least, let Karl finish out coaching the team throughout the weekend before making a decision.

So, wow, how exciting are the Sacramento Kings to follow? Since Rick Adelman’s contract expired in 2006, the King have had eight different head coaches. And since Paul Westphal was fired in 2012, no Kings coach since has coached two full seasons.

It’s really been an exciting time to follow the Sacramento Kings because, at this point, it’s more than obvious that they are the most dysfunctional team in sports.

So, should the Kings fire George Karl? Probably and it’s likely going to happen. Trying to make sense of the Sacramento Kings is like trying to make sense of ‘Making a Murderer.’ A lot of crazy things have happened but nobody knows exactly what happened.

Who wanted George Karl in the first place? Some say it was owner Vivek Ranadive, others say it was ex-GM Pete D’alessandro. It’s a saga entirely too confusing to follow.

The one thing we do know, DeMarcus Cousins probably doesn’t like George Karl. It seems the two never really got along. I’m sure we remember this offseason how upset Cousins got when Karl basically said no player was untradeable.

Now, following the loss to the Nets, Cousins isn’t exactly his normal chipper self.

Following the loss, Cousins’ said, “I’d rather keep it in house, but we definitely have a bigger issue than just energy and effort. That can’t be the excuse every night.”

George Karl is going to get fired, but what can the Vlade Divac and Vivek Ranadive do to stop making firing coaches a recurring theme? On a side note, according to Marc Stein, Corliss Williams would be the interim head coach if Karl is fired.

If the Kings want to keep DeMarcus Cousins happy, then they basically have to surrender the team to him. I don’t really know how hiring head coaches in the NBA works, but whoever they hire has to be someone that he likes.

The Kings were actually going somewhere with Mike Malone, but after Cousins was out for a period of time with an illlnes the team began to struggle and wound up firing Malone. Cousins and the team liked Malone and he was obviously upset at the decision.

The Kings have seemingly made it clear that they won’t trade DeMarcus Cousins, so they need to find a way for him to coexist with whoever his head coach winds up becoming. Who that head coach is? Who knows.

There have been rumors about the Kings wanting John Calipari, but he is always quick to shoot down those rumors.

There are some big names candidates out there like Tom Thibodeau, Scott Brooks, Mark Jackson and even David Blatt. However, why would any considerably successful coach take a gig in Sacramento when they’ve seen the way the organization has been run.

Any of these coaches could soon be heading to Sacramento, but unless they can get DeMarcus Cousins on board, they’ll be on their way out in no time.
