i was being sarcastic. i'm not one of the people in these appreciation threads that were demanding jordan rename the team, sell it, or dancing on the grave of a 7 win season

this area is full of terrible fans and as soon as the cats go on a 6 game nosedive they'll go back to their usual petulance

as soon as i saw a biyambo appreciation thread i knew the bandwagoners were out rolling around in the sunshine

He has brought a culture change as well as emphasis on defense. There was a article in the observer about how mully doesnt want to let dunlap down. He also has shown that he is not stubborn leaving zones out of the gameplan and going to man.

I think you are somewhat right, there's alot of bandwagon fans in the area. I think you can sort of blame that on the rich college basketball history in the area between duke, state,carolina, wake forest, and even UNCC has some tradition in hoops. I think this has bred a somewhat entitlement outlook the fans set for their team.

However you can say that about most areas in the US. Unless a team is apart of the areas culture or is the only ticket in tow in struggles with lack of wins....for the most part.

But this area does love its basketball, even more so than other areas. The potential is here to build something.

When we first hired Coach Dunlap, I wasn't sure that I'd ever say this, but he was the right guy and I am VERY thankful that Cho and co. did they homework. You know that they REALLY did their homework to hire such an unknown guy... an assistant at an average college basketball program. Kudos to the front office.
