bout time, hope he gets another gig. He's a good coach, its hard to coach a bunch of people who have no concept of what team basketball is and have no intention of learning.

Calling Flip Saunders a good coach is a mighty exaggeration, but I do agree Wiz are full of uncoachable morons.

Really. What has he done? I doubt he'll be at the top of others teams lists anymore when they go looking for new coaches.

Larry Brown wouldn't want any part of that team.

He'd jump at the chance to coach a pg like Wall.

Five losing seasons in 15 years. Two of those were 40-42 (a season after taking over a T'wolves team that went 20-42) and 25-26 (again, Minnesota).

Career win % somewhere in the 60% range before taking over this awful bunch.

He's a good coach. This may be the worst NBA roster I've seen in two decades.

This won't fix anything, but I'm not surprised.

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.

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.

And he got replaced by Randy Wittman?



The Wizards just got a whole lot worse.

Randy Wittman is Rambis-esque at coaching

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.

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.

Maybe ownership really just wants to do two things out of spite:

1. Slap the ignorant players in their collective faces.
2. Pocket the $ they would've spent on another coach.
