This happened most recently in May 2005, when rumors surfaced that Brown would become the Cleveland Cavaliers' team president as soon as the Detroit Pistons finished their postseason. The rumor, which was not dispelled by Brown, became a major distraction as the Pistons lost to the San Antonio Spurs in seven games in the 2005 NBA Finals.
On July 19, 2005, the Pistons, displeased with Brown's public flirtations with other teams, bought out the remaining years of Brown's contract, allowing him to sign with another team. A week later, on July 28, Brown became the head coach of the New York Knicks, with a 5-year contract reportedly worth between $50 million and $60 million, making him the highest-paid coach in NBA history.

7 straight 50+ win seasons
6 straight trips to the Eastern Conference Finals or further (2 Finals appearances)
1 Championship (same amount as Boston, , cause they ain't getting one this year)
Why did the team fall apart? Here's why...
Ben Wallace left in 2006-07 because he was butting heads with Flip Saunders and Chicago offered him $60 million when Detroit could only offer $48 million (cap issues).
Chauncey Billups left in what was supposed to be a cap clearing move and Rodney Stuckey was supposed to continue his progress. Failed experiment, but trying to get youthful and clear cap space is always a good thing.
Rasheed Wallace left because of money, bad coaching moves, and he was on his way out.
Larry Brown left because of the following:

Ben Wallace went from Garbage him to DPOY, they were Gifted Hamilton because Washington was dumping him to make room for Jordan, And Sheed was Dumped on your lap.. Put that squad together was more luck then anything else.
With that said Joe Fail was Sustaining the Run..
They let Big Ben walk they could have offered more but choose not to go over the Cap. After loosing him they did nothing to try to replace him.
THey Stupidly Trade Billups for Iverson becasue they wanted more scoring putting all his eggs in Stuckey basket which turned out FAIL.
Overpaid Rip then Overpaid Ben Gordon both played the same Position and Stuckey is pretty much the same player as well it was just a Dumb log jam at that poisiton..
Now they go into rebuilding mode and last off season they Dumbly Extent Teyshaun Prince and Stuckey(after drafting Knight). If your Going to rebuild then Rebuild you dont do that by resigning your over the Hill/Failed experement players...
Im not even gonna get into the Dumb Coaching Hires because i think that was more of Ownership wanting to go Cheap then bring in a Solid Vet Coach.
