I think they might win a bunch of games with a new coach at first because they wanna show it's not on them and they'll play hard to begin with, but in the end this team is still full of boneheads who don't play winning basketball. That's why I think in the long run nothing will change.
Thats a good question, he havent really done anything.

Either KG carried teams, or stacked Pistons, what notable Flip did? Its like saying if Lebron carried Cavs, Mike is a great coach. He isnt, or lets say - at least he knows defense, Flip doesnt know anything well.
He really looked like a defeated man that last game. Barring a personnel purge, I don't think even the allure of Wall could attract many big name coaches. The roster is just extremely flawed and difficult to coach.
Not a huge fan of Flip but I don't think there's any coach in the league that could have done much with this roster especially as apparently he didn't have backing of his front office.
You have lots of egos to manage
Lots of chemistry to build up
Half the Wizards squad would probly try to ignore and antagonize Phil Jackson himself if he told them things contrary to what they want to hear.
They are a sad sad squad full of mental disease. Turiaf is positive, but too goofy to ever be a vet leader. And both Lewis and Mason are way too soft spoken and introverted to take the lead in that locker room.
Flip knew he f#@ked up game 1 after making Blatche a captain.
