Who saw this one coming?

The Hornets are 3–6 and flying under the radar because of the Saints' superb season but that won't stop the Bees from making headlines. According to many sources, Byron Scott has been fired after New Orleans' abysmal 124–104 loss to Phoenix on ESPN last night.


To start the season, George Shinn said that he would be holding players and coaches accountable for their actions. Scott's inability to bring this team together, let alone give playing time to younger players as asked, has most likely led to his departure.


Just think, a little over a year ago Scott was being presented with the NBA Coach of the Year award to the cheers of a sold-out Hornets Arena. How quickly things change.


UPDATE: General Manager Jeff Bower has taken over coaching duties for the Hornets. Also put on the hot seat by Shinn before the season started, we'll see if Bower can get more out of the players he's picked than Scott could.
