Cont.. from last post about the HoopsHype Dunleavy getting fired. Sounds to good to be true.
I love the last part about Dunleavy refusing to only be GM.
The question is does that void his contract? I would think he would still get paid, because his job is coach and he probably volunteered to be GM. Or he just takes over GM responsibilites. Anyone knows how that would work?
I got the impression that the contract would remain intact and that he would just relinquish his coaching duties. That’s a good question though – let me see what kind of info I can dig up on that scenario.
There’s a good news for Clipper fans.
Be patient. The day will come when this Clipper team will be owned by a different owner and stationed in a different city. And the Coach is not going to be one Mr.Dunleavy.
Post Alvin Gentry Clippers(except for Cassell induced season) have been a chain of blunder after blunder. Hopefully things will get better once Clipper team losens itself from the clutches of Sterling.
“This Way” by DP is one of my all-time favorite songs.
Love that one too. That and “worst comes to worst” really made me get into them.
nice start Dunleavy needs to continue to allow the bench to warm-up
Clips double up the Raptors in the first quarter – 34-17. Maybe the sky isn’t falling?
Dont foul Kaman
DeAndre airballs another free throw, except tonight this one is literally 3 feet short of the rim.
come on hold them off
lost a 22pt lead…and we have yet to go through 3rd or 4th qtr slump!
dj where’s the live chat?
Took tonight off – we’ll be skipping Sunday as well (we don’t roll on Shabbos!) but we’ll be back in action with the live chat Tuesday against the Hornets.
i love ralph…”that;s a strike” after rhino knocks down two raptors
You guys do so much great analysis on CB, but you fail to bring up the most glaring thing about this team. A blind man can see it, these guys don’t want to play hard for Dunleavy. They don’t like him. Right or wrong, it’s much easier to replace 1 coach than 12 players.
Bill Simmons had all the stats on Dunleavy, no coach has been this unsuccessful for this long and has kept his job.
You blow a 22 point lead AT HOME, someone’s got to get fired.
22-point lead into 7-point deficit? Fire this fucking idiot.
22 point lead at home into a 15 point LOSS. READ THAT SENTENCE. He’s gone. He has to be.
should been watching the galaxy game…
This game isn’t completely Dunleavy’s fault the players choked but something has to cahnge and we can’t afford to wait for Blake.
Gee we support a very crap basketball team. 16 pt to zip run last 3 minutes, give up a 2 point lead at that stage and get smashed.
Another masterful coaching job by the dumb loony!
What will it take to kick this idiot upstairs!
Oh man, DS needs to go out on center court and Fire Dunleavy during the game.
I like how the broadcasters were surprised that Barron was starting the 4th quarter after playing the whole 3rd.
Ok it’s been 10 games. Any Dunleavy defenders left?
We need a direction if we are giving up this season for the lotto let’s make trades now.
Ha, people are wearing brown bags on the post game show
While I hate to jump on the Dunleavy hate train, but since there has only been one common denominator over the years, this guy has to go. Whether these losses are his fault or not, he’s just not impacting the team. I am utterly disgusted right now, and so ashamed to have witnessed a 22 pt swing.
dj? ka? what happened? no tweets? i just gathered myself off the floor as well…you must still be on the Staples floor in pieces…
K.A. is likely asking questions in the most depressing locker room ever right now, while I’m still staring at my TV trying to figure out what the hell just happened.
dammit! why the hell does rasual think he should gun it everytime he touches the ball?!?! he hasn’t been hitting jack sh*t all season. after all the hype of him being a good defender and perimeter shooter, all i see is a big pile of garbage from him. take his ass out and let novak knock down the shots. and why is kareem rush getting run? that guy’s a scrub also. clippers desperately need to sign a top notch SF next summer and a solid backup PF since i’m sure camby will be leaving to sign to a championship contender. let’s see if baron and byron scott can squash their beef and work together again.
so disappointed with the season thus far.
The fans need to organize a boycott. I would do it but I live in Philly.
Wow, Dunleavy looked like he was about to cry in the post game interview. Maybe Donald told him, win this game or you’re fired. This could be it, Donald might want to save air fare and hotel money on this upcoming road trip.
At long last, I’m completely on the bandwagon. I don’t mind if Dunleavy’s the GM, but I’m in total agreement with what’s been said above (and, you know, for years):
FIRE DUNLEAVY as coach. Tomorrow. Can’t happen soon enough. Won’t go to any more Clipper games till he’s gone, won’t watch.
The team certainly bears some responsibility. Injuries do matter. But I’m so sick of our mediocrity, and our 20-something point swing tonight — our newest second-half collapse — reminds me: change starts at the top.
I think Dunleavy deserves the blame for compiling a roster full of players who couldn’t hit sand if they fell off a camel.
We need a 3-o road trip or are playoff hopes are gone teams are starting to gel and they are pulling away.
trade Butler for Jackson or even Maggette if all i care
START STEVE NOVAK……
i mean what the hell ? Thornton is not as good anymore and BUTLER IS HORRIBLE!
after all the hype of him being a good defender and perimeter shooter, all i see is a big pile of garbage from him.
Dude… Butler was very good on the Hornets but you know why? Because the system there alowd him to actually play his role. This guy is a good defender and a good spot up shooter but the coaching staff hasnt made any adjustments and told him his role on the team I suppose? The fact that players stop being as good when they come to the Clippers is a big fault to team management.
but what else is new…
you can’t blame the system on butler’s crappy shooting this year. the fact remains that he isn’t hitting his shots and getting beat on defense. the system has nothing to do with being able to defend his assigned player. the problem is him. i say bench his ass. maybe sitting on the bench for an extended period of games during his contract year will get him to work harder.
Wow! Ralph Lawler was just on the Clipper post game radio show and he came about as close as he could to saying that Dunleavy should be fired. That idiot apologist Brian whats-his-name didn’t even know what to say.
Byron Scott, anyone?
Check with Baron. Didn’t go so well with those two last time.
Doh. Forgot about that. Seriously, who is available with some serious coaching juice?
dunleavy gets fired and LA gets to place freestyle basketball
whoooo thats going to be freaking fun to watch with BD …oh DJ w the DUNK!!!
Bill Simmons on Dunleavy haha———-Best of all, I have Mike Dunleavy, someone who is so bad at his job that on Wednesday night — after I walked out of a game in which he waited 47 minutes and 22 seconds to insert Steve Novak (his only decent outside shooter with Eric Gordon sidelined) in the game to “spread the floor,” which would have been fine if Novak wasn’t ice-cold, although that’s what made it so fantastically abysmal, the fact that Dunleavy probably broke the career record for “Most Times Putting An Ice-Cold Guy into the Biggest Possession of a Close Game” — I said to two of my Section 102 friends (Jesse and Lenny) as we were leaving, “I’m actually going to miss games like that when they finally fire Dunleavy. I feel like we’re watching a level of incompetence on a daily basis that transcends sports and might be something I tell my grandkids about someday.” Thank God I have Mike Dunleavy.
Dujmp Dunleavy and let him take Baron with him…
Baron talks about leadership, but couldn’t lead a camel to sand… THEY BOTH MUST GO.
Baron is the worst starting PG in the Western Conference now and he’ll only get worse.
Every time it was up to him to be the man and take the team on his shoulders he sucked like a 2-bit whore.
I wish we had a young guy like Evans, Jennings, Lawson or Flynn right now – those guys have been in the league for less than 10 games and are already blowing Baron away.
John Wall, we need you, baby…………….
I think Dunleavy just coached himself out of a gig tonight.
I never felt that he would get fired before because of yet another collapse down the stretch but this one feels different. This was his epitaph!
Fact is – Dunleavy has tried to make it work with 3, 4 totally different rosters and other than the Cassell led team the results have been terrible. He’s been the only constant in all these losing seasons.
Time to wipe the slate clean………….
Wow. I’m just completely speechles with the game I saw tonight. I don’t even know what to say. I really didn’t think Dunleavy could find yet another way to screw us over and lose this game, but he does it again. Up by 22 points at home, but we end up losing by 15 points? You’ve got to be kidding me. Another 4 quarter meltdown by our Mike Dunleavy-coached Clippers. I’ll be shocked if Dunleavy makes it threw this weekend as our head coach. The time is now to get this idiot out of here.
DTS needs to give the finger to all the whining fans and give Dunleavy a five year contract extension. Sterling needs to show the fans that he calls the shots and no one else. Who cares if the team loses…DTS can tolerate it. And if he can tolerate it, so can you.
I can’t believe what just happen. I just seen the Clippers live show just said this was the second worst lost in team history. Damm!!
what was the first? wow.
each one is just so special!
i fell asleep at 7:30 and woke up now at 1 to read the recap.
the napping gods spared me this awefullness.
even Don Mclean was throwing the coach under the bus in his own way…
Dunleavy will get fired this week and replaced by Lucas. They may keep him as GM. Donald Sterling was livid after the last game. He hates to eat money, but they’re going to have to find a way to pay off the $5M they owe Dunleavy so they don’t lose the entire season. Fans are going to start to go nuts.
Just take a deep breath. Clippers will have Gordon and Griffin in December with a new coach. May even finish the season close to .500.
If they don’t fire him, I’m canceling my season tix.
Im quite completely new to this kind of blog talk things nevertheless I am enthusiastic to help and learn a lot, I hope. Specifically in relation health as well as the particular areas of nourishment and in my case training.
Anyhow, merely saying hello and wish to get along with for some time.
