I understand a lot of Shock fans are upset about the team letting go of Rob Keefe. I understand. But sometimes business people have to make business decisions for the sake of business.

Aw, heck. I don't understand it either, really. As a Matter of Fact, I am just as upset about it as you are. All Rob Keefe did was win – as a player, as an assistant coach and as a head coach.

Don't forget about how he became a head coach. Adam Shackleford had just led the Shock to an af2 championship, and the Shock let him go. So now it's come full circle.

Rob is a great guy. He's animated. That animation is good when you're winning. But when you're struggling at 9-10 that animation suddenly becomes an annoyance. It wasn't about Xs and Os. I don't think the way he was let go was right, but you have to understand from Brady Nelson's win-at-all-cost standpoint that when you're not winning it's not a good look.

Somewhere Adam Shackleford is sitting back – eating a chef salad – laughing this whole thing off.

Karma.
