This can happen through normal relationship changes, often aggravated by losses, or a failure to achieve team goals. I think the front office still likes him, and despite ill-fitting pieces right up until the trade deadline, Ryan has been willing to stick with Rosas’ plan, even if extra losses hurt his chances of keeping his job. But the players are what’s important, so let me ask this:
Do you think Ryan has lost the locker room? Do the players still respect him and play hard for him?
It’s a 2-way street ... majority of players who don’t “play for a coach” often have a questionable future in the NBA...
