So much to "not rushing the decision"

But I Was never really a fan of Dunlap, and I don't really think many of the players were either.

He's for sure a college coach, not an NBA coach.

He'll find a job back in the NCAA ranks, I mean hell he was a St. John's assistant?! Goodness smh

I wonder who MJ has waiting in the wings...

...the Zen Master?!?!

Only kidding ;)

What did they really expect out of him this season? He was brought in because of his niche for player development, which is what he did. Oh well, I feel bad for him because he did was he was brought in to do, however, there are still better options out there.

Looks like most people don't understand this UNLESS someone has already committed (and a proven vet coach) to come in here and lead this team. If this isn't the case, I don't fully understand what MJ is doing. I've been in the middle with Dunlap, but it always come down to what roster this guy has. If he had McRoberts and Hendo played all season like he did the last 2 months, we would have probably won more games. Let's just hope MJ has a plan....

I would have kept him 1 more year and see what he can do... to judge him on the roster and team he had last year wasnt fair to him. The only way I would agree with his release is if the players had major issues with him (excluding Ben Gordon)

I give Jordan credit. He couldve been cheap and kept him around another 2 years even tho he knew he was gonna fire him anyway like another local ownership group and franchise. Props

He's a college coach. Not fit for the NBA game and personnel. He's probably going to be able to parlay this into a head coaching gig somewhere at a respectable mid level university. UNCC?

Just off the top of my head - you gotta think Patrick Ewing is going to be the leader in the clubhouse now for the job.

Bonnell said on WFNZ that he believes it would have been hard to attract expensive FAs with him here. Probably a good, mutual split for both parties involved.
