"There are currently 6 black head coaches in the NBA..."


          

These articles are from a couple of years ago, things have somehow gotten worse since then...

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2584463-where-are-all-the-black-nba-coaches-examining-a-sudden-silent-disappearance

https://www.sbnation.com/nba/2014/5/16/5723170/nba-race-problem-coaches-gms-owners

There have been 3 head coaches fired this season. All 3 of them were black.

1 was fired 3 games into the season. 1 was fired 19 games into the season after making the playoffs in his first season. 1 was fired 45 games into the season with his team 1 game over .500.

Feb 14th 2018
26
                You aren't smart, though. Dula is. So you should probably bow out.
Feb 14th 2018

                     Constantly verbal abusing others...not a sign of intellectual security
Feb 15th 2018
42
                COY is like the kiss of death for black coaches, for 4 years straight...

Feb 14th 2018

Feb 14th 2018
33
                                         Let’s not act like Pringles and Woodson didn’t coach the same team.....
Feb 14th 2018
35
                                              IMAGINE if Woodson and Pringles switched positions with the Knicks.

Feb 15th 2018
41
