If this this historic losing streak continues, Doc will by gone by January 20th!!!

He is an average coach at best, and he apparently has LOST this team.

This is sad.  The effort is pitiful.  The commitment to small ball by Doc is simply astonishing. 

We might be playing the WORST basketball in the NBA.

I will bet you a million pretend dollars he doesn't.
At least a goldfish with a Lincoln Log on its back goin' across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous connotation to it.

Players love Doc. Garnett and Pierce would probably perform worse without him coaching.

Simply not happening.

Doc made it through a truly historic 18 game losing streak and is still the coach. 3-4 blowout victories, especially against 3-4 of the best teams in the league, isn't getting him fired.

And BTW, exactly how much non-small ball can Doc play given the construction of the team given him and the players that are healthy. I just don't get this criticism the last two years. The league has gone small ball. Danny constructed a small ball team and people want Doc to play something other than small ball.

I just and baffled by that criticism.

I will say this. Doc has not gotten many of the newer players to "get" his defensive system and their overall lack of aggression and desire to just take jump shots is all on Doc.

Yes, how can he not get everything out of this team of young studs in their prime?

We banked on last season's hurrah being the norm rahter than an exception. We lost. The rebuilding process is more complicated than firing Doc.

Danny Ainge should step down before Doc gets fired.

No he won't...  Danny LOVES him - and it will be to our detriment.  Doc is a myth - he's as good as his assistants.  His only skills are 1) communication, and 2) out of bounds plays.  Other than that he sucks.

Wish ABC would come calling him...

Popovich knows how to adjust his talent.  Pat Riley did so with the Lakers to the Knicks.  Mike Fratello ran with the Hawks and slowed it down with the Cavs... 

Doc just does what Doc has always done.  He's a system coach, not a roster coach.  I can't stand him any longer...
