"Firing" Thorn begins new reign of error




from CBSSportsline: "Rod Thorn is telling colleagues that his impending departure from the Nets is “not about the money,” but that horse has left the barn. It’s well known in front-office circles that Thorn was asked to take a massive pay cut on a new contract, perhaps as much as 80 percent, according to two sources. It’s possible that after a cooling-off period, Thorn could be retained in some sort of advisory capacity while owner Mikhail Prokhorov pursues the young, dynamic voice he’s said to be seeking."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If any of you actually think Thorn is just stepping down to be with his family, you must be kidding yourselves. Prokhorov obviously low-balled Thorn because he wants him out as President/GM and didn't have it in him to outright fire him just like the Yankees couldn't pull the trigger on Joe Torre and instead offered him what he considered to be an insulting offer to come back with an incentive-laden deal.

 

Nobody ever called out Bruce Ratner until it was much too late and now the same will happen with Prokhorov apparently.
