Dunleavy Poll: Should He Be Fired Now?

I guess I post one of these every season just to see what Clipper Nation thinks.

If you've been under a rock, here's my brief summary of how things seem to be shaping up around here.

No one thinks Mike Dunleavy is doing well as head coach. So the difference in opinion mainly seems to be between...

 

A. Fans who don't like the job Dunleavy is doing, BUT think he should stay because

  1. Dunleavy hasn't had Blake Griffin all year and if he did the Clips W-L record would be better thus making it ok to have him as coach.

  2. Fans are afraid of Sterling's/Management's next choice for coach if Dunleavy was fired. In Clipperworld it seems like things can always get worse so the possible instability at GM and Head Coach positions seem too daunting to mess with during the season while hopes for the playoff are still flickering with life.

 

B. Fans who are fed up and want Dunleavy gone now because

  1. They see teams like Portland, Houston, and Sacramento (you could probably throw in Memphis too) seemingly playing better against higher seeded opponents with what seems to be far less talent. Houston has been without Yao and McGrady, Portland has been without Oden, Pryzbilla, Outlaw, Fernandez; Sacramento without their leading scorers in Kevin Martin and Francisco Garcia...

So they see teams with "far less" (it's subjective, I know) talent winning against teams the Clippers have been blown out by. To make matters worse the Clippers have lost to the Pacers' bench, to the Knicks after being up by 20+, and a Portland team with no bigs.

  2. They are tired of Dunleavy's tenure and his play calling, substitutions, offensive schemes, etc. and feel that he has "lost" the team. Some might even argue the players play worse when he is coaching just to spite him.

 

So what do you think?
