Mehmet Okur did not take his firing gracefully.

After the former NBA All-Star was relieved of his duties as a Phoenix Suns player development coach Sunday, he posted - and then deleted - the following on Instagram:

The Suns sacked head coach Earl Watson and several members of his coaching staff, including Okur, following an 0-3 start and named associate coach Jay Triano the interim replacement.

The same day, starting point guard Eric Bledsoe tweeted he doesn't "wanna be here," and "liked" Okur's post criticizing the organization.

Oh boy.
