Any change is positive change at this point, and frankly any coach who makes Blatche team captain and gives him significant minutes should be fired.

I honestly don't think you realize who just replaced him.

Flip Saunders gave up on this team the moment preseason rolled out

Remember when he benched all his starters in the preseason game and said flat out to the press "I was tired of watching that shit"

Poor guy was put in a shitty situation. That roster is young and terrible. With that being said, he really didn't do much of anything at all. Its one thing to have a bad team, its another thing to lose your locker room.

Would like to see a veteran coach who can actually teach these players. Not a ego-manager type coach. Something similar to Doug Collins in Philly.

Hopefully Randy Wittman can inspire these young guys to at least play better, play like a team, etc. Wins don't really matter at this point.

KG was a star, but there was nothing about those teams that made them automatic winners. Poor depth and guys that, aside from KG, never delivered big at any other stop in their careers.

The stacked Pistons team won 10 more games with him than they did the year before with Larry Brown.

They should just have the players coach the team themselves rather than waste a couple million bucks a year paying a guy the players won't listen to anyway.


(Kidding, sort of).

Can't argue with that statement though.

Also, holy shit, I've never had a thread of mine stickied before.

Great coaches get the most out of players, have good offensive and defensive schemes (or at least get assistants who do), can manage their egos, team delivers better out of time-outs, etc.

Flip does none of those things well. I was watching him for over a decade, he is bellow average coach. Even Mike Brown is better, who can only do one thing well - defense, nothing else.

What concerns Pistons, Larry won championship in one of the greatest overachievements in NBA history in '04, in '05 he was in the Finals again. Flip took over after that, and outside of winning more games in the regular season, can you say anything good about those Pistons teams? No championships, no Finals. Mike Brown was also winning a lot of Regular season games (more like Lebron was), it didnt mean squat in the Playoffs.

I am surprised that it took this long. I love Flip, but he was in way over his head with this team. Then to let Randy Wittman take over.... It is going to get worse for the Wizards.

The Wizards aren't trying to win. They are in rebuild mode. Ted Leonsis, the owner, believe in building through the draft. He's fine with losses piling up.

Flip Saunders was fired because he couldn't get a good effort out of his guys and his players were not improving. Honestly, Saunders should have been let go a long time ago. He was the wrong coach for Leonsis' rebuild phase.
