Mike Malone wont stop roasting Kings management for firing him in 2014

Mike Malone wont stop roasting Kings management for firing him in 2014

NuggetsA head coach Mike Malone can rest easy (for now) knowing he has the team with the best record in the NBA. But it wasna€™t too long ago that he was out of a job, sitting on iceA after an untimely and probably unfair exit in Sacramento.

Thata€™s why hea€™s taken his fair share of jabs atA KingsA management since re-entering the NBA as Denvera€™s head coach in 2014. Like the comment he made on Thursdaya€™s about Sacramentoa€™s new coachA Dave Joerger, who has guided the KingsA to an impressive start few saw coming this season.

a€œ[Kings GM Vlade Divac], this group, theya€™ve done a great job,a€ MaloneA told reportersA before his Nuggets played his former team on Thursday. a€œI just hope they let Dave do his job and not screw it up for him.a€

This wasna€™t the first time Malone spoke about Divac and the tumultuous Kings front office. Sacramento fired him 24 games into the 2014-15 season with the team skidding whileA DeMarcus CousinsA was out battling viral meningitis. He then took a job coaching his daughtera€™s fourth grade basketball team with his time off.

Malone appeared shortly after onA The Chris Mannix Show. Herea€™s what he said about his time in Sacramento, compared to his new gig coaching fourth-graders.

a€œBut, I kid you not, that was probably the most fun Ia€™ve ever had coaching,a€ he said. a€œAnd maybe ita€™s because I knew I wasna€™t going to have an owner coming down, firing me because we werena€™t playing a certain style of play that he wanted.a€

This is what Joerger had to deal with earlier this season
