I've been one of Dunlap's biggest advocates, but the guy needs to go. He cannot be an NBA Head Coach, although I can see why he would be a great assistant. He show no emotions, nor desires during games - and there is a perception that he is not willing to stand up for his players.

Also, insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result. The Lakers game was the 8th game, yes, 8 games were the Cats have leads of 15+ and Dunlap goes back to his 4 guard rotation and we lose the games.

Every team know the Cats cant shoot from outside, if you go with 4 guards and 1 big, the opposite team just clogs the paint and dare the Cats to shoot, which they can't do. Then on offense, they will kill you inside, since you have no defense at all.

That has nothing to do with talent, is pure coaching. You cannot play Kemba, Sessions, Gordon and Henderson or Taylor at the same time, with only one big on the court. It doesn't work, how many times does Dunlap needs to see his lead dissapear in order to get it, that it doesn't work.

If you are up 20, you put a small line-up, and 3 minutes later your are up only 5, how in the world can you justify keeping the same guys on the floor. I also wonder if his other assistants don't see this. This is not college ball, this is the NBA. Guys here are way too big and athletic for yo to play 4 guards at a time.
