Doug Collins is Going to Lose it Coaching this Shit

I always thought that this job might kill Doug Collins one day. He’s bounced back nicely from first-season frustrations. But now, sans Andre Iguodala and his replacement, a loon, Collins seems to be as frustrated as ever with his inconsistent Sixers. 

Last night, after a home loss to the Hornets, Collins complained to reporters about not having solutions to the Sixers’ problems:

“What do they say the definition of insanity is? Doing the same thing and expecting different results. So, I didn’t want you to call me insane after the game. I… [maniacal laugh]… had to try something.”


And then, Collins took his frustrations out on Inquirer beat writer John Mitchell* (can’t blame him for that) for asking a question about players tuning out Collins:

“Are you kidding me? No, you’re digging. That’s not a good question, John.”


He wasn’t kidding, Doug.

*Mitchell is the same guy who thought he had a scoop in August with a four-month-old report that Andrew Bynum was scheduled to undergo a knee procedure in Germany. He’s also the same guy who, apparently, thought that reports of players tuning out a coach were the work of snitches.

Videos after the jump.

    One of these days somebody is going to quote that stupid “definition of insanity” crap one too many times and I’m going to snap.

    It’s a damn shame, really. The Sixers had a chance to capture fans disenchanted by the Eagles and idle while waiting for the Flyers to start up, and all they had to do was play like a team instead of a bunch of mutts. Now that Doug’s charges have fallen and can’t seem to get up, the Sixers will disappear from the city’s sports consciousness yet again.

    remember when there was no NBA and how amazing it was?

  • Mel Gibson January 16, 2013 at 11:54 am

    Yeah who cares about the NBA? I’d rather watch women’s sports… haha not really but still.

    I can’t wait until DiLeo actually puts his footprint on this team. Once some trades are made (Getting Nick Young out of here for a post presence like Elton Brand is definitely a priority) then you can see a possible dynasty. It’s definitely not Doug. It’s definitely not DiLeo, it’s Rod Thorn’s lame duck moves bringing in bitch made players like Nick Young are to blame.

    Nick Young was signed to a one-year contract so I’d imagine they let him walk at the end of this season. I don’t care what he did in the fourth quarter last night. He’s still a bad basketball player. Even the fat kid in the gym gets hot once in awhile.

    Doug doesn’t get it. Evan Turner is a 1 guard and Jrue is a 2 Guard, Thad is a 3 guard and Lavoy is a 4 Guard. That’s why we’re losing….the coach
