The Ultimate Stat Curse???

Lots and lots of internet gossip regarding Cavs coach Mike Brown being given the bums rush in Cleveland.

Have a look at the last five winners prior to Scott Brooks taking the title this year with OKC.

 

2004–05 Mike D'Antoni^  United States[b] Phoenix Suns 62–20 .756
2005–06 Avery Johnson  United States Dallas Mavericks 60–22 .732
2006–07 Sam Mitchell  United States Toronto Raptors 47–35 .573
2007–08 Byron Scott  United States New Orleans Hornets 56–26 .683
2008–09 Mike Brown^  United States Cleveland Cavaliers 66–16 .805

Notice anything apart from the fact that they all had a penchant for designer suits and three of them liked to sport a mustache? 

They are all currently not employed by the team that they won the award with, well in fact Mark Cuban may well be paying Avery Johnson still but you get the idea.

If Brown goes you'd have to fear for Brooks.  It could be that this is the poison chalice of professional sports.
