OKC Thunder Fire Scott Brooks

It’s as though the Thunder were reading my column yesterday and remembered, “oh yeah, we should probably start making moves”.  (I’m sure Sam Presti reads TheCoLA)

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Denver NuggetsYahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Thunder have fired head coach Scott Brooks and will begin searching for the next coach immediately.  According to Wojo, Sam Presti went out to meet Brooks in California to deliver the news in person, and Brooks will be an ideal candidate for the jobs in Denver and Orlando (or any other crap team/situation).

Brooks had one year remaining on his deal at $4.5 million, which the Thunder will now have to payout.

This is why TheCoLA loves Scott Van Pelt

As you’re all well aware (click here), we’re not big fans of ESPN radio moron racist host, Colin Cowherd.  He’s consistently the worst ESPN “personality” mouth-breathing on a microphone on a daily basis.  And it doesn’t surprise me that even other  “on-air personalities” aren’t big fans either, including ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt taking to twitter:

but wait, Colin wasn’t done:

And just because I’m all fired up now, here’s another (very credible and popular) “colleague” calling out Cowherd’s bullshit in February of this year:

Who knew the SVP tweet would stir up such a twitter/online storm of discussion raising all kinds of questions about ESPN policy and ESPN propaganda (google: SVP Colin Cowherd), but I guess it opened a wound for a lot of people concerning Cowherd’s incredible amount of distasteful and seemingly racist comments over the last few years.

Ready to get sick, Colin Cowherd also COMPLETELY RIPPED OFF Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” while simultaneously bringing everyone to climactic mouth-vomit in this episode of “Commentators in Cars Talking Football” (which he hosts from his Land Rover, #canyagetanywhiter).  As if Colin couldn’t look and sound any more white-privileged/yuppie/suburban, he’s now ripping off Jerry Seinfeld (badly I might add) as well.  This is why you can’t have nice things Colin.
