Murray's firing no surprise
All that said, I can't say I was too surprised to hear he was fired Tuesday night.
The Kings, again beset by key injuries, are stumbling down the stretch. They're just 2-5 in their last seven games. And they're in grave danger of missing the playoffs for the third straight year. On Monday night, they were embarrassed by the Avs, 5-0, at the Staples Center. The team's effort was so bad, it seemed as if the players had quit on Murray.
