author:Basketball Teaching Forum

On December 3, Beijing time, the Pistons lost to the Cavaliers 101-110 and suffered a 17-game losing streak! It is worth mentioning that the 17-game losing streak broke the historical record of the Pistons team! Bogdanovic ushered in his season debut, scoring 22 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists on 7-of-15 shooting, and Cunningham scoring 23 points, 6 rebounds, 11 assists and 3 steals on 8-of-20 shooting, still unable to stop 17 consecutive defeats.

Monty said in an interview: "I don't like what is still honored, this word doesn't mean anything!" The problem is that no one says that the Pistons are still glorious even though they are defeated, everyone is just talking about the shame of losing! This summer, the Pistons signed Monty for six years and $78.5 million, which is the second-largest coaching contract in NBA history, second only to Popovich's five-year 80 million!

The normal annual salary of an NBA head coach is $5 million to $10 million, and most of the contracts are 3-5 years! Monty not only has an annual salary of more than $13 million, but also has a contract period of up to 6 years! In fact, the Pistons didn't want to give Monty such a big contract at first, offering a short contract with an annual salary of 10 million, but Monty refused, he looked down on the Pistons a little.

The Pistons didn't look down on Vogel, they didn't look down on Nas, and they were bent on pursuing Monty, so they kept raising the price! In the end, Monty agreed: no way, they gave too much! In the end, Vogel went to the Suns, and Nas went to Philadelphia, and both of them had much less annual salaries than Monty. You know, Vogel and Nas are the champions!

Monty's annual salary is not only higher than Vogel and Nass, but also higher than both Kerr and Spo. In fact, there are only two coaches in the league today who earn more than $10 million a year: Monty and Popovich. One fan said it well: Monty has never proven himself without Paul, what qualifications does he have for an annual salary of tens of millions?

The media posted a set of data comparisons: in November 2021, Monty led the Suns to 16-0 in a single month, and in November 2023, Monty led the Pistons to 0-15 in a single month. His brief success with the Suns made Monty overestimate himself. The new owner of the Suns can't look down on him, and on May 13 this year, less than 48 hours after the Suns were out of the playoffs, Monty was out of class!

Monty Suns has three years and $21 million left on his contract, but the owner directly notified him to leave. Monty spent four seasons with the Suns, going 194-115 in the regular season and 27-19 in the playoffs. In the 2021-22 season, just over a year ago, the Suns led the league in the regular season with a 64-18 record, and Monty was named the best head coach.

If you are an athlete, after a major injury, your form has fallen off a cliff. Before joining the Suns, Monty coached the Hornets for five seasons, winning 173-221 in the regular season, a winning percentage of just 43.9 percent. Twice made the playoffs, both of which were first-round exits.

So the question is: Why did the Suns choose Monty as head coach in the first place? In May 2015, the Hornets fired Monty, and he went to Philadelphia as an assistant coach, and Monty became the head coach of the Suns in 2019-20! In the 2019-20 season, the Suns lost the playoffs 34-39.

In the 2020-21 season, the Suns were 51-21 in the regular season, ranking second in the West. The Suns made it all the way to the Finals, but unfortunately lost to the Bucks 2-4 in the end, and Monty and Paul missed out on the first championship.

In the 2021-22 season, the Suns are 64-18 and first in the league in the regular season. In the 2022 Western Conference semifinals, the Suns lost to the Mavericks in the tie-break battle and missed the Western Conference finals. In the 2022-23 season, the Suns are 45-37 and fourth in the West. Also in the Western Conference semifinals, the Suns were eliminated by the Nuggets 2-4. That's what Monty did with the Suns...

Some people may ask: With such a bad record, are the Pistons going to fire Monty? No! I just signed a six-year contract, and I have to finish the road I cried...
