    Dunleavy definitely needs to be kicked upstairs or to the curb. Elgin Baylor took the fall for Clipper owner Donald Sterling's financial tight strings and they promoted Dunleavy to handle both jobs....Yeah we can blame Byalor for some of the fiasco, but right now Dunleavy should be on the hot seat despite them losing the # draft pick to injury.

    If Blake Griffin comes back healthy and this team is still faltering then Dunleavy should fire himself and hire B Scott before the Lakers decide to give him one of those Dumars-Saunders wink-wink deals to take over Phils job when he retires.

    Don Nelson....2-3 years ago they knocked off the # 1seed Mavs and then fall apart....Now S Jackson is playing awol and Donny can't control it...

    I am always intrigued with the Don Nelson situation...Because he's not a BAD coach, but is he a good coach? Sure his teams win games, but they don't win championships. And there always seems to be drama surrounding what he is involved with.

    That was my point. There is an example where having a GM take over has been successful.

    Wasn't Bower in Sha Na Na? It might sell some tickets.

    It began with Avery Johnson, then Sam Mitchell, than Byron Scott. So the next will be Mike Brown. I meant the former COY got fired.

    Yep he would be the next in line for the COY.

    I think your underrating David West a bit there. And by a bit, I mean massively.

    Saints are just Sundays or potentially Monday, though. Either way it was a bad move by a hasty owner.

    Another recent receiver of the COY gets fired....mike brown should be worried (already can think a scenerio in where he gets fired.)

    I was kidding with the whole fire Q, guys.

    Worst decision in New Orleans Hornets history.

    I hope they keep this up so we (Seattle) can get our Sonics back.

    For those of you that didn't follow that drama, the agreement was that Bennett would release the Sonics name and colors if Seattle gets another NBA team.

    I think L. Frank and D'Antoni are safe since both of those franchises are in the "let's wait for LeBron" mode. Mike Brown is probably next if Cleveland is not in top 3 in the East by year end.

    Yes I knew about the rights about the logo, the colours and the name of the Sonics.

    It would be weird if the Hornets move to Seattle and change the name to Sonics.. lol

    You should say massively then, and you're entitled to make judgments based on your observations. My observations see a PF with less game with his back to the basket than Charlie V, plays decent pick n roll basketball, doesn't rebound, and doesn't play D.

    You can say that same thing about Lamarcus Aldridge and look how much the Blazers value him. West is the only player other than Paul who can create his own shot.

    Now that Paul's out, we'll see about that.

    I disagree, he's better than 8and4, but sans CP3, he darn sure isn't an All-Star.
    Who? West, create his own shot??? What team are you watching.

    Darn straight, West will get his numbers, they'll lose and his FG% will take nice dip.

    The Byron Scott firing was PURELY a desperation move IMO.
