Dunleavy has a real good reason in that the Clips have had a truck load of injuries, Nelson has had less of that to worry about. Baron, Randolph, RDavis, Camby and most of all Kaman, have all missed alot of time, Camby just recently, but they have their four top players injured all at once.

Nelson has been performing like a coach that should be fired

Lucky for us as Warriors fans, we have got to see our top players on the court night in and night out. The Dubs have had just as many key injuries as the Clips. Monta has not played a minute, Jackson has missed plenty of time, Maggette, BWright, Marco. This team has not had their A-team on the floor together one time! Maybe you give the Dunleavy a pass because the Clippers are being the Clippers....but to point out their injuries, then to call Nellie an underachiever this season is ridiculous.

With the injuries, especailly Monta's that really hurt us. But at the same time Nellie's coaching led us to blowout loses to the Wizards, plus blowout loses to so many teams i lost count. He coaching was very questionable this year, I remember a game against the Magic he had Azu guarding at 6'5, guarding Rashad Lewis at 6'11, had Belly Guarding Kevin Durant. I mean there are better options on the bench for us to match up against such length. The list goes on our match up promblems this year. Nellie is lucky he signed that extentsion.

The Warriors have not had the injury issues the Clips have had, not close. Baron hasn't played for the last month, Kaman over half the season so far, Randolph for almost a month, RDavis (supposed to be their starting SG) just came back not too long ago, Camby is now injured as well

Well, more than their record, the reason for his firing seems to be lack of development of their young kids. Mayo has been great for them, but high picks like Conley or Crittenton haven't improved as much as the team expected, and they seem to blame Iavaroni for it.

They did. Oh BTW, Crittenton was not the Grizzlies pick. It was the Lakers, where they traded him half a year later to the Grizz. Just bringing that up..

Still, Conley hasn't been anything special. I never saw him as special, either. They really should of looked at someone else. There was Yi, Wright, Brewer...

We are one of only 3 teams, within the worst 9 teams in the league, to have not fired their coach.

Every coaching change has happened within the bottom 9, and there are 2 teams with better records than us............who fired their coaches.

OKC = 9-35 - Fired Coach.
WAS = 9-33 - Fired Coach.
SAC = 10-34 - Fired Coach.
LAC = 10-32 - Coach Still Employed.
MEM = 11-32 - Fired Coach.
GSW = 13-31 - Coach Still Employed.
MIN = 14-27 - Firec Coach.
IND = 16-27 - Coach Still Employed.
TOR = 17-28 - Fired Coach.

Is it still Rick Carlisle coach of the Pacers? If so, surprised he didn't get sacked real quick. This is by far the worst season he has coached

You've been a bit out of touch with the league, don't you, bro? Carlisle is the Mavs coach.

Jim O'Brien is the Pacers coach... and I actually think he's doing a good job. Other than Granger, who's been a monster this year (and I guess O'Brien has something to do with that), they're one of the worst teams of the league.

How many of those teams are dealing with as many injuries?
