Bower, who also coached the Hornets for a little less than one season after Byron Scott was fired in 2009, helped build a Hornets team that won 56 games and came within one game of advancing to the Western Conference Finals in 2008. As injuries mounted and some players moved on (Tyson Chandler), the Hornets began to fade and Bower was fired in 2010.
He also looks like a certain video game character.
