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.

Jerry Sloan might be an option again.

Then they'll be going through this same process in a year or two.

Sloan is/was an excellent coach but if they were going to hire him for 1-2 seasons as a stop gap they should have done it last year.

I don't know why stability is always disregarded in pro sports.

Bonnell indicated in interview on WFNZ that the players definitely are not as upset are the fans are...

I think that about says it all... Hate it for Dunlap, I thought he had a good system for our young team.

Smart decision to fire him.....brought on by a God Awful decision to have hired him in the first place.

Interested to see who he goes with now.

I have a feeling that Dunlap will rebound quicker from this than the Bobcats.

He's now an ex-NBA coach and would certainly provide an asset to a college coach in recruiting. I still think he's going to be able to get a mid level NCAA head coaching job from this. If not this year than next.
