The disappointing sweep by the Spurs was the beginning of a summer of discontent for the fans. Nearly a month later, Hollins was gone. "I achieved a considerable amount of success during the time I was here," Hollins said. "Taking a team that previously won 22 games a year, taking young players who hadn't done anything and developing them into a winner, here's finally an opportunity for me to reap the rewards financially, and it didn't happen." The fans were hurt and angry. Hollins said he felt hurt, thought hurt, and felt he was wronged, but that life just isn't fair. "No matter who you are there are going to be trials and tribulations in this life, and you have to trust God to get you through them and move forward," Hollins said. My FOX Memphis

Was there anything he could have done that would have kept him with the Grizzlies? Hollins said he's heard he was too stubborn and didn't work well with the organization, but denies that a member of management walked onto the court and instructed a player on how to play. The real story: they were doing a drill, a kid in a corner shot a three-pointer and one of the management guys jumped out and challenged his shot from the sideline. "The only thing that made it a big deal is that it was during practice and I reacted, I mean I went livid, just like if a player messed up in a certain setting I may go livid." After practice was over, Hollins went up and said I'm sorry and the man apologized, too. They talked about it. "Unfortunately it came out that I was trying to show management up but that's not what happened. There was no conversation between management, person, or the player." My FOX Memphis

But what about the players, how did Hollins end his career with the Grizzlies players -- Zac Randolph, who was doubted at first by fans, Marc Gasol, and Tony Allen. "I saw them as having their own vision, own plan," Hollins said. "I could take them not wanting me but I couldn't take them trying to destroy my reputation and credibility." My FOX Memphis
