(Said Lionel Hollins:) “Taking a team that previously won 22 games a year, taking young players who hadn’t done anything and developing them into a winner, here’s finally an opportunity for me to reap the rewards financially, and it didn’t happen.”

The fans were hurt and angry. Hollins said he felt hurt, thought hurt, and felt he was wronged, but that life just isn’t fair.

“I saw them as having their own vision, own plan,” Hollins said. “I could take them not wanting me but I couldn’t take them trying to destroy my reputation and credibility.”
