Video description
Before the 1997-98 NBA season, eight NBA teams made a change at head coach. One of those teams was the Boston Celtics, who hired Rick Pitino away from the University of Kentucky to be coach and president. The decision to put that much power in the hands of someone who was fickle with his roster, collegiate in his approach, and interested in being the center of the show, proved to be a total disaster.
