It's been fifteen years since the infamous "Latrell Sprewell incident" occurred and changed Brooklyn's interim coach P.J. Carlesimo's coaching career.? Carlesimo has made a few stops since the incident transpired ?and also won a few rings with the San Antonio Spurs as an assistant coach.

But being an NBA head coach is a special position and Carlesimo is trying to put the Golden Sate incident behind him once and for all.

P.J. Carlesimo is off to a 3-1 start as interim head coach of the Nets, including an improbable win against the NBA?s top team in the Oklahoma City Thunder. He'll look to make it 4-1 tonight when the Nets visit the Washington Wizards.

For Carlesimo, the win might have been a bit sweeter, since he was the first coach in the Thunder?s history. However, his tenure lasted only 13 games as he was fired after a 1-12 start.

Giants DC Perry Fewell is busy these days interviewing for the most of the remaining head coaching vacancies in the NFL. He has already wowed the Panthers and this weekend he met with Broncos owner Pat Bowlen and Denver's new football czar John Elway.

According to Paul Schwartz of the Post, Fewell had this to say yesterday about his meeting with the Broncos....

"Everything seemed like it was geared towards winning. Championships start at the top and it starts with Mr. Bowlen. He knows how to compete, and that makes it more fun for you as a coach. He understands competition and knows what it takes. It just trickles down the food chain. I see that in the Denver Broncos organization. I see that in how they play and how they've prepared and I want to be a part of something like that."
The way the situation is unfolding, it appears there could be a bidding war over Fewell's services.? A third team, the Cleveland Browns, run by Mike Holmgren, will interview Fewell this week.
