I don't think you get fired when you coach a team that was 2-10 to start the season and you end up losing in the WCF.
No shame in being a 7-seed who lost to the top team in the West all season.
The Lakers got swept but all of the games were pretty close. We lost by an average of 6 points a game (by 6, 5, 11, and 2). Suns lost to Denver at an average of 17.25 points a game (by 18, 10, 16, and 25).
Against Denver and Dallas our average loss was by like 19
It’s insane how up and down the Suns have been the last two years in the playoffs
