Doug Gottlieb: "Anyone can lose, but when Magic Johnson, Captain Obvious himself, says it is obvious that you quit, that is an issue. I know Joe Mazzulla, and everyone I know who knows him thinks he's awesome. But you can be awesome and not be the right fit for the right team at the right time. Joe Mazzulla took all the blame, put none of it on the players, which likely means behind the scenes, it's a player problem. Now the players are talking about connectivity, that's a coach and player problem. They're an absolute mess."
