Admitting he didn’t know any of the details, LeBron guessed that Fizdale was let go “because he ain’t gon’ kiss nobody’s ass” (starting at 0:21):
“Probably everybody in the basketball world [was surprised] besides who pulled the trigger.” […]
“I don’t know the details of it because I’m not around. But I know the type of coach Fiz is. I know how players relate to him. And I know what he stands for.
“And he don’t stand for no… maybe that’s what it was. Because he ain’t gon’ kiss nobody’s ass. I know that.”
Earlier, LeBron had tweeted that Fizdale could have been the “fall guy” for the struggling Grizzlies, who have lost 8 straight games.
I need some answers. Feels like my man was a fall guy
