Default Jim O'Brian has resigned as coach of Boston

Will it didn't take long for Scott to find a new job. That is the reason Jim O'Brian resigned. Boston wanted to have Scott. I didn't blame them. Scott did take them to the finals two striaght years.

Will Jim O'Brian coach the nets now?

ESPN.com news services
BOSTON -- Jim O'Brien resigned as coach of the Celtics on Tuesday due to philosophical differences with executive director of basketball operations Danny Ainge, ESPN has learned.


The Celtics will hold a news conference at 6 p.m. ET, but the team isn't commenting on the topic.


Under Ainge and O'Brien, the new-look Celtics have not been able to find their identity this season. They are 22-24, in second place behind the Nets in the Atlantic Division. Ironically, the disappointing Nets, just 22-20, fired coach Byron Scott on Monday.


The Celtics made a big move during the offseason, trading Antoine Walker and Tony Delk to the Mavericks for Raef LaFrentz, Jiri Welsch, Chris Mills and Dallas' first-round pick in 2004.


The problems of veteran forward Vin Baker have not helped matters. Baker was suspended indefinitely by the Celtics last week for failing to comply with his aftercare program.


It's the second time this season that Baker, who struggled with alcoholism last spring, was suspended by the team for failing to comply with his recovery program. On Jan. 7, he was suspended for three games.


O'Brien is the sixth NBA coach to be out of a job this season, and the 17th since the 2002-03 season. Two weeks ago, the Knicks fired Don Chaney and replaced him Hall of Fame coach Lenny Wilkens.


O'Brien was 139-119 in three-plus seasons in Boston.

in answer to your question.....no, O'brien won't coach the nets.....look for Doc Rivers to end up there.....

Scott will end up in LA in about two years.....until then, he will probably be on tv.....

the reason why I said what I said is because it seem weird that Boston coach resigned within two DAYS of the Nets firing. If Boston wanted Doc Rivers they could had have him sooner.

Just TWO DAYS AFTER NETS FIRED SCOTT

I could be wrong. It seems strange to me

I'm Still Scratchin' My Head At The Fact They Gave Away Delk And Walker And Got Back Only La Frentz, What The Fuck....'Cause In Essence, That Was The Deal...And Vinnie Baker Was On His Way To Most Improved Player Of The Year, Up There With Michael Reid, This Happenin' To Him Wasn't Good....The Truth Once Again Must Go Solo...

read an interesting bit in the sports section this morning that of the 15 teams in the Eastern Conf. all but 1 of those have different coaches than they did at last years seasons end. The Atlanta Haws are the only team in the east with the same coach as last year. Just goes to show you how unstable the east is these days as opposed to the West.

holy consiparacy theories, batman!

But O'Brien resigning has been rumoured for weeks. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the Raptors Kevin O'Neill got the ax along with Raps GM Glen Grunwald next.

you want underperforming? fuck the celts.....the raps are sucking all sorts of ass.
