I just don't get the total lack of understanding of who i on the floor for the Bobcats. Ryan Anderson is on the floor to do ONE FREAKING THING, shoot open jumpers. Why do you constantly double off of him and leave him wide open for shots. I'm starting to believe Dunlap needs to held responsible for our guys not knowing what the opposing players are capable of. We constantly leave shooters open, I mean constantly...
This team is starting to look very poorly coached.
I think Dunlaps been shocked by the quality of 3 point shooting in the League. Hopefully, he'll adjust.
at this point im in favor of a no 3s defense with only man to man. if your man is on the perimeter, stick to him like glue...no helping on penetration...let the bigs try to take care of it. its insane how big of an impact our 3 defense has had during this streak...and nothings being done about it!!!
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
The bigs' struggle on offense also plays into Dunlap's decisions on defense. (And to be fair, lack of consistent outside shooting plays a large roll here too) Since they're not a good half-court offense, Dunlap tries to do anything he can to get out in transition as much as possible. Hence the flooding of the strong side, use of zones and traps to attempt to create turnovers. Once the bigs pick up on how to rotate better or better bigs are brought in, Dunlap's in a tough spot.

I'm tired of the same old crap as well. It's so annoying, frustrating, and disheartening to see them blowing these 15+ point leads as many times as they have. And the only reason it keeps happening is because they have fell into the same trap from last year, in the "woe as me, it's happening again, there's nothing we can do to change it" state. That's why it feels almost pointless to watch. They subconsciously have shifted from looking for ways to win to looking for ways to lose.
Even when we have the lead, it feels like we're not in the game.
People can say what they want whether Dunlap is a problem or not, but I think it's a valid question to ask. No, we don't have a lot of talent... But, by no means should we be this bad.
We look like a team that won't ever be good, and essentially just a feeder team for the rest of the league, like I'm sure Kemba is looking real nice to some teams when his rookie contract is up.
I really cannot understand the fascination with Gerald Henderson is. He's fucking trash, a good dunk every once in a while and a average defender but that's about it.
