Sports Illustrated released the results of a poll they held and Sam Mitchell was voted the worst coach in the NBA according to the 248 NBA players contacted for this survey. This season I’ve been trying to support Mitchell but he baffles me with his ill-timed timeouts and his inability to give Chris Bosh or Morris Peterson a rest. Besides his humorous post game press conferences and his friendship with Bosh and Wayne Embry there isn’t any real reason why he keeps his job. But, there’s the catch - his friendship with Bosh and Embry. Sadly, as long as Mitchell can stay in the good books of those two men he’ll be able to maintain his job in the T Dot.
