Hubie Brown resigns as Grizzlies' head coach mid-season, destroying any chance of the Grizz ever getting Phil Jackson

Thanks a lot, Hubie. Head Coach Hubie Brown has resigned from the Grizzlies for health reasons. That's all fine and dandy, but couldn't he have done it before the season started, which was only less than a month ago? I always knew that Hubie wouldn't last long with the Grizzlies since he was the OLDEST head coach in the four major professional sports in America. But I was hoping that when he resigned that the Grizz could sign Phil Jackson, the greatest coach in NBA history. And plus, Jerry West and Phil Jackson know each other after having worked together for the Lakers. So Hubie was supposed to have quit IN-BETWEEN seasons so that Jerry West could pursue Phil Jackson. But NO, Hubie had to quit in the middle of the season. So now West is going to have to hurry up and find a replacement. Jackson probably already has his mind set on taking this season off now that it's started, so he probably won't be available. Now, I wish that West would just hire some dumbo coach for the remainder of the season, or let the interim coach Lionel Hollins coach the rest of the season, but no, West is probably going to hire somebody and sign them to a mulit-year contract. Then, next year, if Jackson comes back to the NBA, he'll probably sign with some other team for years, and we'll NEVER get him. Oh well. The Grizzlies have been going down the tubes all season anyway. I think last year's good season was a friggin' FLUKE.

By the way, the only person the media is talking about that's in the running for the coaches job right now is Mike Fratello. The Czar??? Oh, Lord...
