Here is an article by Charley Rosen (FoxSports.com) that predicts the coaches who are on the "hot seat" this upcoming season. Guess who is on that list? I for one don't feel his job is on the line. Most of the situations that occurred last season were not of his doing. I do hold him accountable for benching Cassell over Livingston though. I felt it was too early to make a switch like that. Livingston wasn't ready and in hind sight, the team didn't look as sharp as the previous year at the start of last season. It might have accounted for the sluggish start...who knows.
Aside from that, he has managed to make lemonade out of the lemons(in juries) that he was dealt. Considering the money he had to spend , he managed to get some good "replacements" at a good price. In my opinion, he has 2 years to get us back to the level we were during 2005-2006 season. I think Charlie Rosen has drunk some Kool-aid. I will start a POLL to see how we feel about Dunleavy.
Here is an excerpt of that article;
Mike Dunleavy, L.A. Clippers
The devastating injuries to Shaun Livingston and Elton Brand have given Dunleavy a legitimate reason to fail. But when/if Brand does return to action this season, then Dunleavy will run out of excuses. Nothing short of surviving into the second round of the playoffs can save Dunleavy from having the opportunity to watch every single game that his son plays.
