At the lowest point of the season (so far), thought we could do a poll on who public enemy #1 is for this board. I will list some option plus other, so tell us your pick and why...

Nelson, who is blatantly stubborn and refuses to do anything other than play small-ball, which is CLEARLY not working for this team. When young players like Wright and Randolph come in, produce, and have a positive impact on the game, Nelson will bench them for no reason.

He builds a team with the philosophy of offensive freedom, even when the roster is stacked with players who need a system to succeed (Jackson and Maggette, and maybe Crawford have proven they can hold the responsibility of offensive freedom). If they take a series of dumb shots, don't expect Nelson to tell them about it. He only cares if a rookie accidentally fumbles the ball once or twice. He under-utilizes Turiaf, who is our best post defender but for some reason only plays like 15 MPG.

And somehow, Nelson doesn't seem to understand the concept of the human body getting tired, as he still gives 40+ minutes to Jackson, etc. who clearly get tired. And don't expect Nelson to come up with a rotation either, like a normal coach does! He's gonna throw his starters out there for 40+ minutes, with random bench players out there to fill in the gaps, or some STUPID small-ball gimmick. Fire Nelson, please.

well nelson didn't "build" this team. I think thats the GM/Prez job on getting players.

But if there is one guy to blame the most, it is Nelson. He doesn't care at all, and thats sad. he has no passion, and it sinks to the players. Like Randolph's reaction yesterday said it all when he got pulled early. Nelson WAS a great coach, as late as last season. That guy is now gone.

I agree...it is like watching Frank Sinatra at the end, clueless on stage, forgetting his lyrics, or some aging former babe, squeezing into a dress and scaring away the young fellas she used to draw like flies to honey. Nelson's turned into a hasbeen before our eyes. I am curious who #2 on the list will end up being? I am sure there will be some "love" for Rowell and Mullin, based on what I have read on the board. My guess is Dunleavy :)

jaypat said it all. But coltrane I would like to comment on you Frank Sinatra scenario. Nelson was never Sinatra. He never made it to the top. He was more like a promising lounge singer who could never make it big and putter around the off-strip clubs looking for his big break. therefore he didn't just sing he added a comedy routine ( small-ball) to try to make it to the main stage and fell horribly short. He's more like Red Buttons instead of Sinatra. LOL :D

You are so right, Reggie...it was a terrible example. Speaking as someone who thinks Sinatra was one of the five greatest singers of all time and a musician myself, I blew it. as penance, I offer up:
