NBA lays off roughly 114 employees

Posted by shawn cassidy on July 15, 2011 at 2:45 AM

The NBA laid off about 114 people over the last two days, planned cost-cutting moves that a league spokesman said Thursday are "not a direct result of the lockout."The laid off employees represent about 11 percent of the league office workforce in New York, New Jersey and internationally.

Spokesman Mike Bass told The Associated Press the layoffs are "not a direct result of the lockout but rather a response to the same underlying issue; that is, the league's expenses far outpace our revenues."

I guess it's the sign of the times. The nation is dealing with lay offs,and I guess the NBA is to.

Don Nelson on Wolves' list

Nelson is the Zen master of run and gun offense. It works with young teams like the Wolves. I think it will be a quick fix.

Nelson is the winningest coach in NBA history but found himself without a job in September 2010, when new Warriors owner Joe Lacob decided to make a coaching change just days before the start of training camp.

Nelson, who passed Lenny Wilkens for first place on the NBA's all-time wins list late in the 2009-10 season, has an overall record of 1,335-1,063 (.557) in coaching stops in Milwaukee, Golden State, New York and Dallas.

In the aftermath of Rambis' firing, sources told ESPN.com that Nelson is undaunted by the widespread criticism Minnesota is receiving around the league for dragging out Rambis' dismissal for three months.
