NO COACH IS SAFE. HEAR THE NAME OF THE DEER AND TREMBLE.

USA TODAY Sports

For the second time this season, an NBA team has fired its head coach immediately following a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. According to Jude LaCava of FOX-10 in Phoenix, Alvin Gentry has been removed from his post as head coach of the Phoenix Suns. The move comes one day after the Suns blew a fourth-quarter lead in a 98-94 loss to the Bucks, giving Milwaukee its first win in Phoenix since 1987.

FEAR THE DEER. TERROR, THY NAME IS MILWAUKEE. ALL SHALL TREMBLE AT THE SOUND OF THEIR HOOVES, PARTICULARLY DURING THE SUBSEQUENT 12-24 HOURS AS THEY FADE INTO THE DISTANCE AFTER THEIR GLORIOUS CONQUEST.

Gentry took over as interim head coach for the fired Terry Porter during the 08/09 season and has held the position ever since. He was originally hired by the Suns as an assistant to current Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni in 2002.

NONE ARE SAFE IN THE FACE OF THIS ANTLERED MENACE. KNOW THAT YOUR TIME HAS COME, PUNY COACH, AND RESIGN YOURSELF TO A FATE AS BENCH COACH FOR THE LAKERS OR SOMETHING.

The Brooklyn Nets fired head coach Avery Johnson in late December after Milwaukee sent the team to its 10th loss in 13 games.

TREASURE WHAT TIME YOU HAVE, TERRY STOTTS, AND KNOW THAT THE RUMINANT NIGHTMARE SOON COMES FOR YOU.
