Everyone is important, from GM to scouts to coaches to players. It's just that some things are easier to fix than others.

For instance, it's kinda easy to change players and coaches (assuming good trades and good candidates are available). But even then Lakers go ahead and hire a great run-and-gun coach for a team laden with great veteran half-court players...

What every GM and fan wants from their teams is the maximum output from a given personnel. Last year, for the most part, Raps were giving that night in and night out. This season, for whatever fascinating reason, they are not, not even close, at both ends of the floor, at least not on a consistent basis. This team is never going to be mistaken for a contender, but their personnel is obviously much better than their record would suggest. BC (or whoever takes over) should be primarily concerned with finding out why.
