Knicks Fire Fisher
In a surprising move, the New York Knicks have fired coach Derek Fisher halfway through his second season.
The Knicks are currently in a five-game losing streak and they have lost 9 of their last 10, but they were showing improvement from last season, as they have a 23-31 record in 2015-16. New York had won just 17 games all of last season, Fisher’s first as a head coach. Kurt Rambis will now be the interim head coach of the Knicks.
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, the Knicks are currently listed with 300/1 odds to win the NBA Championship this season, joining the Detroit Pistons with 300/1 odds. The Golden State Warriors are a -125 favorite to win, while the Cavaliers have 3/1 odds.
The Knicks are currently 5 games out of the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. New York is currently 12th in the East, 15 games behind the Cavaliers for the best record in the conference. The Knicks haven't won an NBA Championship since 1973.
