Is that why Nurk pretty much openly rioted against him? And there were rumors of Stotts losing the team and blah blah blah a decent guy has nothing to do with basketball knowledge, prowess or acumen. Being a “decent guy” doesn’t deserve respect, as that should be a basic human requirement. they may have respected him for being a “decent guy” but clearly *at least* Nurk didn’t entirely respect him because he’s a shit coach. I’m sure he lost other ppl on the team based on his silly stupid schemes also - offensively AND defensively.
