Despite his many detractors, myself included, Dunlap has made a tremendous difference in his short time in Charlotte.

He has this young squad playing hard for 48 minutes and they're fun to watch as they grow as Pro's and as a team. My hat is off the Dunlap for the job he's done and for giving the Bobcats hope again.

He seems like he commands the respect of his team and has them believing. Rivera, take note.

Its such a relief.

I think he gambled a little bit...he ran the team really hard with those 4+ hour practices. If we had lost some of these games early he could have lost the team. But I think they believe in him now. Thats what changing the culture is all about, when your hard work brings success it makes you want to work even harder. Watch Kembas interview after last nights game, he loves Dunlap.

Yeah, seeing the progress of Kemba is a testament to Dunlap, he now looks like the stud we saw in NCAA.

I like these long hour of practices.
Pros have become lazy of some sort when talking about practices. High schoolers are practicing longer than these professionally paid sport players.

Dunlap is a great hire for the franchise and these young kids that loss the winning attitude last year under a dumb coach.

We won't be seeing Dunlap and TT throwing fists at each other (Silas).

And the thing is, you don't see him flipping out on the sidelines, even with an obvious horrible call against the Cats. The guy has a calm and collected demeanor in the game, but it's clear he demands intensity from his players until the game is over.

He should be a shoo in for COTY at this point, but it's still early.
