To Natt, Or Not To Natt?

Natt_medium_medium 

Inspired by Rik Smits (our Rik Smits, not Indiana's Rik Smits), I have gathered the following information as it pertains to in-season coaching changes. I went back over the past 10 years and listed the 42 coaching changes that have taken place during the season. Interesting(?) to note that only Detroit, Houston, Indiana, San Antonio and Utah have not changed coaches during the season over the past 10 years (nor has Charlotte in their 7 years of existence.

Decifer, disemminate, discuss and debate -
