Just one humble vote for Dunleavy as GM

I actually do like Dunleavy as the GM.  In the perfect world, we'd have a Joe Dumars at GM and maybe a Flip Saunders for coach (I would have preferred Stan Van Gundy when he was available)...and maybe a Jerry Buss as owner while we're at it.  But we're far from being in the perfect world so I have to try to find the best about our current situation. 

My own humble opinion is that we've really got the best of both worlds here:  Young talent that aren't expected to fully hit their stride for at least 2-3 (maybe 4) more seasons AND fairly young (~27 y.o. to early 30's) veterans that can shoulder the load in the meantime (and maybe accidentally get us challenging for playoff spots) and after those 2-3 (maybe 4) years, those same veterans, would then be older and would be contributors from the bench supporting the younger peaking superstars on the floor (like Derek Fisher's role in Utah backing up Deron).

The problem is direction and leadership.  The talent is there, but Dunleavy is not the coach to lead them next year and beyond.  It isn't a question on whether or not he is a really good coach, because arguments may be made that he is a good coach and arguments could be made that he belongs coaching the D League.  I think the question is whether or not he is a good "fit" as coach for THIS team...  Correction: it's not really a question, is it?  It's more a statement of fact.  The Clips need a new voice in the locker room and I hope they find one soon.  If not from a new coach, then maybe one of the younger players need to pull a Brandon Roy/ Dwayne Wade and take the leadership role in the team...
