I'm coaching a road game today and don't have enough time to fully dive into the news that Comcast fired Bob Cousy. I have to say it caught me off guard for several reasons.
1. Cousy was incredibly positive last season and genuinely enjoyed being there. This wasn't like previous seasons where he complained the whole time.
2. It's Bob Cousy, one of the key remaining links to Red Auerbach. The Cooz!
3. Donny Marshall is okay as a studio guy, but I'm not sold on his broadcasting work.
4. There will come a point when you can't get Tommy Heinsohn and Cousy on the air together. There's no reason to force the issue.
