The craziness about the Kurt Rambis situation seems hard to explain. The more I think about it I think it the delay in firing him comes down to two possible things:
1. All about the $. With the looming lockout, why hire and pay a new coach? After the Draft could be any time or a time when the new CBA seems likely to happen. After all the trades for cash last night, it seems like cash is pretty important.
2. The team somehow doesn't want to cloud the enthusiasm about Rubio and Williams by firing Rambis in the same time frame or before they intro their shiny new pieces. For example, today we should give D Will (and Lee) their due and not focus on Rambis. Maybe fire him tomorrow.
