he was brought in to develop players- not win games..
well guess what- player development has gone down since he got here..
players have checked out totally
losses by 30-40 points with 0% hustle and no effort have shown how the players think
fire Dunlap- let Stephen Silas coach the rest of the year and move on from this horrid season

signed - bP

It's not completely what they think. It's that they've been ran into the ground by Dunnlap's practices. It was a real worry before the season. Dunlap's manage to run biz into the ground and considering how in shape he is. It's saying something and its not good.

I know it's rough, hell I have been to what seems like 10 Cats games this year and nearly all of them have been losses (I think we won one), but we knew coming into this year that this was going to be a struggle, however the struggle will turn around next year with the draft and our cap room.

This is our last year of patience.

In my humble opinion, I think Dunlap will be fired after this season and replaced with McMillan or Sloan (I think MJ told them to hold out for the job). The reasoning is clear... MJ knew we weren't going to be competitive this year, so why pay a coach a bunch of money for a job that he won't be able to do... Instead hire a coach that is a good teacher/mentor to young guys that can teach them the fundamentals before we get a "real" coach in here that understands NBA basketball.

What do you expect when you have two starters who.would struggle to score in a layup line.

Dunlap isn't a terrible coach by any means, but he also isn't the coach to lead this franchise in the future. Everyone knew when he came aboard that it would be as a teacher essentially. We have a lot of young players, and I would say for the most part Dunlap has done a good job with them. My main gripe as far as his player development is MKG not getting enough minutes or playing during crucial times. The Bobcats are still way better than last year, as last year we were getting blown out every game and this year we have been very competitive in most games. There is no reason to be beaten like a drum against the Kings, though... that was just sad... same for Utah without 3 starters (namely their 2 best players -- Jefferson and Millsap). Dunlap definitely has good basketball knowledge and is a good teacher, but he is a pretty terrible strategist, as well as a pretty meh x's and o's guy. He knows the game well, but he just isn't an NBA caliber HC. We'll keep him another year imo, but it will be the last year is my guess.

I hope you guys realize that it was part of the plan to be terrible this season. I know it sounds crazy but it's the honest truth. Plus it isn't like we are over-flowing with talent.

Remember we're following the Thunder's mold, tank enough seasons and stock pile top 5 picks, then you profit for a decade.

If we're sticking with a shitty, unproven draft pick too long (Biyombo), might as well stick with a shitty, unproven coach too long as well.
