The first time he got arrested, he wrote the police a statement. Part of it read: "I have been at Michigan State University for the past two weeks. My roomate (sic) put some things in my bag because he was going on vacation with his family. I thought it might be something illegal but I never did check. . . . I was supposed to go back to school on Thursday. He told me to make sure I brought the bag back. I had no idea, I thought it might be a joint or something.

In a move that would have been shocking if it hadn't been so easy to see coming, the New Jersey Nets on Monday fired Coach Byron Scott, who had taken them to the last two NBA Finals. "It happens to almost every coach eventually, your message isn't well received and taken onto the court," Net President Rod Thorn said at a news conference in East Rutherford, N.J. Scott's assistant, Lawrence Frank, will coach the Nets for the rest of the season. NBA history has little precedent for such a move.

Back when he hired Byron Scott to coach the wretched Nets in June 2000, team President Rod Thorn spoke of Scott as a guy who could cover "every possible conceivable situation that could happen on the basketball court." Sure, Scott had an excellent basketball pedigree, having won three championships with the Lakers. Sure, he counted Pat Riley and Larry Brown, for whom Scott played, among his coaching mentors, as well as Rick Adelman in Sacramento, where Scott served two seasons as an assistant.

Phoenix Sun Coach Scott Skiles went timeout-to-timeout with the Lakers' Phil Jackson in Game 4, bringing down the curtain on the Mr. Nice Guy phase of this series. Modern NBA coaches are expected to posture and try to get into each others' heads in the playoffs. So how does Skiles think Jackson is doing?
