Flip Saunders fired, JaVale McGee opts out of media ‘friendzy’

When pro coaches are fired, it’s customary for team leaders to speak up and say that the coach was not to blame, and that it’s always sad when a good man loses his job, and that if the players don’t improve they’ll be next, and so on and so forth.

JaVale McGee took a different approach on his Twitter account.

Well, happy trails, Flip. May your next job involve fewer friendzies.
