LeBron James said that "everybody in the basketball world" was shocked by the firing of Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale on Monday. Even in retirement Jackson finds confrontation like a heat-seeking missile. The firing surely caught a lot of insiders and players by surprise. Inexplicably, Jackson chose to laser in on forward Chandler Parsons to prove his point.

Unfortunately, empathy is not Jackson's strong suit and he wasn't hearing any of it. Jackson slapped away Parsons' olive branch and dove deeper into his criticism of the Grizzlies forward. Fizdale was sacked on Monday following a run of eight straight losses. "Owners, general managers, coaches, players, and handling that is a strain on relationships, and it's disappointing".

Memphis is mired in an eight-game losing streak and owns a 7-12 mark this season after advancing to the playoffs in 2016-17. Fizdale was fined $30,000 by the National Basketball Association for a rant over officiating after a loss in Game 2.

The Grizzlies have lost 11 of their last 13, including the last seven without point guard Mike Conley who has been sidelined with an injury.




But Conley has been out since November 17, resting an aching left Achilles tendon.

The 43-year-old coach was coming off his eighth straight loss Sunday.

Fizdale is bound to find another opportunity in the National Basketball Association, but after becoming the second coach to be fired this National Basketball Association season, it might take some time for openings to become available.

He also was an assistant coach with Minnesota and in Charlotte under his father, Bernie Bickerstaff.
