didnt they crush the raps?

Anyhow, its not a reflection on him, its pro sports, first to go is the coach, always and forever. You cannot fire players, and GM's will throw coaches to the wolves all the time rather than take blame.

Dunlap did bench guys and I applaud him. (accountability? hahaha this is what it looks like when coaches call out stars, they get torched)

I wish the NBA was easier on coaches, but it isn't the culture. Players are not expected to respect coaches, and they don't respect coaches. A handful of old, age tested dinosaurs get respect, and they have the knowledge and experience that commands respect as a result. The young guys....fuck, its hard.

In the NBA, NFL, MLB, its actually part of the culture to respect the coach. Younger coaches with real talent get a chance to make mistakes and gain experience. I wonder how many in the NBA might have grown to become the next new breed of great coaching minds. I wonder if the NBA will ever have great coaching...beyond the handful that earn their chops with manufactured dynasties like Spolstra. Who can tell right?

Anyhow, too bad for the guy, but hey, he likely gets two more years on the books of a pretty awsome 6 digit salary, so there's that.

I remember van gundy the commentator was giving praise to Dunlap in the first what 15 games? Saying he should be coach of the year. Now? Sad

I agree with this move, anything less than a championship is a disappointing season for them.

It's the same thing as batters figuring out pitchers in baseball.
Once you've gone through the order a few times, your true abilities start to show.
And sadly, the CATS don't have any real talent.

Here's a Grantland article about how Dunlap was basically a "it couldn't get any worse" experiment that didn't work out.

The Bobcats sometimes make me feel better about the Raptors. I feel for you Bobcat fans.

Bobcats have seriously bad trade issues. They get halfway decent players and then trade them for kibbles and bits. What they need is post players. They do have a some talent in their backcourt (Walker, Hendo, MKG) but they have no playbook. They needed a new coach.
