Longtime friends Byron Scott and Doug Collins found themselves in similar situations heading into Sunday’s game at Wells Fargo Center.
As the coaches of the Cavaliers and Sixers, respectively, each is facing an uncertain future at the end of a disappointing season.
“It really doesn’t bother me,” Scott said. “It’s a part of the job. You just deal with it. Whatever happens, happens.
“I think at this point in time, when you have games, it’s kind of your outlet. When you have practice, it’s your outlet. It’s when you have idle time that it bugs you more than anything, because you have to hear all that crap.
“We’ve been doing this for a while. Coach Collins has been doing it much longer than I have. It’s part of the job. The first time I got a coaching job, a friend of mine told me, ‘Coaches are hired to be fired.’ ”
