Another Coach Swatted: Denver Nuggets Fire Coach Brian Shaw

The Denver Nuggets have fired coach Brian Shaw after 1½ seasons.

Senh: The triangle offense takes another hit. Derek Fisher couldn't get it to work for the New York Knicks. Brian Shaw, with a season and a half under his belt, fared just as poorly. One could make the case that New York didn't have the talent, outside of Carmelo Anthony, to make it work, but Shaw did. The Nuggets, under former coach George Karl, won 57 games before Shaw took over. The players were the same before the recent trades. So far, it seems, only Phil Jackson can make the triangle offense work.
