Mike D'Antoni and Avery Johnson next NBA coaches to get fired

Mike D'Antoni and Avery Johnson next NBA coaches to get fired With the NBA Playoffs in full swing, the odds makers are coming up with more and more things people can wager on, not just on the game and the players, but now on the coaches, as well. Isaiah Thomas was fired, followed by Sam Vincent, and most recently Pat Riley has left his post as Miami's head coach. The online bookmaker BetUS (new window) has taken advantage of the situation and posted odds on which NBA coach will be fired next and (if the bookies are to be trusted) the situation looks grim for Phoenix coach Mike D'Antoni, who is the favorite to be fired next with odds 2/1.

 With furor over playoff and regular season mistakes reaching an all-time high in places like Phoenix and Dallas and elsewhere, fans are wondering who's (and in some cases calling for) head will roll next. But Dallas own Avery Johnson is right behind him with odds to be the next NBA coach fired at 3/1. So far the most secure spot on the bench belongs to Greg Popovich of San Antonio, who is sitting on the long 50/1 odds to get axed next.
