The best indication of how good you are is not wins and losses but point differential. We have more wins then last year but two of those were vs Washington when they were dealing with injuries. One was a gift from the refs vs the Raptors. According to the point differential we are the worst team in the league... BY FAR!
Remember all that talk about a pressing defense last summer. What a joke! We have a bunch of guys that are supposed to be at least good defenders (Kemba, Hendo, MKG, Taylor, Biz) and we have the worst defense in the league by far. Watching this team play zone makes you realize why no one in the NBA plays zone. We give up the most assists (an indicator of easy buckets) and we give up a TON of open threes (teams shoot better from 3 vs the bobcats then any other team in the league).
The offense is horrible too! Do we even run plays, ever? Our offense is a guard trying to drive past two guys to the bucket (and never getting a call because we are the Bobcats) or somebody taking a contested jumper. We don't have a lot of talented post guys, but I would understand a little more if we were at least trying to develop them. If we go to Biz on the block five or six times a game and he isn't very efficient I can live with that because its a chance for him to learn and improve. I don't see that happening, we are just playing crap basketball out there.
He hasn't motivated the troops. Guys on this team don't look like they want to play for him. A real leader doesn't just bark at the players to play hard, a real leader makes guys want to play hard for him, because they don't want to let him down. The biggest part of being a leader is getting people to like you. That is the reason some guys make great assistants while others make great head coaches. Dunlap does not look like a head coach to me.
We don't have many good vet players on our team, but we aren't asking the guy to win the NBA championship. All we need to see is progress and player development. The only guy that has taken a step is Kemba and he is one of the only players that doesn't need any kind of play run to get a good shot. If Dunlap was a difference maker we wouldn't look like the worst team in the NBA every night.
WTF were we thinking to let Jerry Sloan get away from us last summer. Please MJ fire this guy and lets get someone better. The product on the floor is the responsibility of the head coach and Dunlap is not getting the job done. He has lost all of my confidence and he looks like he has lost the locker room as well.
