Warriors coach Steve Kerr on David Fizdale's firing: 'I was shocked'

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade play for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but they were taken aback by the Memphis Grizzlies' decision to fire head coach David Fizdale on Monday, as Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reported.

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.

Conley has been hampered all season by a sore left heel and Achilles tendon.

The Grizzlies have promoted associate head coach J.B. Bickerstaff to interim head coach.

One of the most vocal people to speak out on the controversial firing was former National Basketball Association player Stephen Jackson, who took to Instagram and posted that Parsons, who received a ridiculous contract from the team, should've been fired from the Grizzlies instead. Things had to have deteriorated quickly for this to be the move the Grizzlies made, and I can not yet say that I understand why it was necessary. "I'm sure [the coaching staff] knew that would hurt me the most". In the offseason the team said goodbye to longtime Grizzlies Zach Randolph and Tony Allen, paving the way for Fizdale to further implement his style.

"Their whole team is injured, Mike Conley's out, this is what happens, you lose when your best players are out", Kerr said. "That's part of this position. Winning is my only priority".

Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace explained the move, saying, "I decided a change in course was necessary to move forward and provide the team and organization its best chance at success this season and beyond".

The Grizzlies, 7-12, will return to action on Wednesday night in San Antonio, followed by a home matchup against the Spurs on Friday.

Fizdale was announced as the Grizzlies coach in 2016 and had a 50-51 record in his two seasons at Memphis.
