I'm not taking any sides, but you know Vandeweghe would start the team from scractch again, don't you?. That's at least four years before having a chance to go to the playoffs...
Do you believe that this hodge-podge of disparate pieces will be in the playoffs within 4 years?
Also, if this team gets into the playoffs in 2 years, how far does it go, and then what?
Mullin has saddled us with a potentially slightly better than mediocre team.
Let's get a real architect in here who has a proven track record and can build a winning program.
I'm just not sold on Vandeweghe. When he took over the Nuggets, he traded their few good pieces (Van Exel, Lafrentz... At least, they were good in Denver and were tradable because of that) and signed Andre Miller (the only free agent willing to go to Denver) the next offseason. The team never really took off until they drafted Carmelo, something any retarded GM could have done (not Dumars, tho. Probably his only mistake running the Pistons, but one that could cost them a chance to have several titles).
I mean, I'm still not convinced that Kiki is a good GM. It's not like Ernie Grunfeld (who has improved several teams) or Brian Colangelo... so, if we're going to change for the unknown... why do it?.
I've got the feeling that Mullin has (somewhat) learned from his mistakes. I would wait until the end of next season before asking for his head.
