Flip Saunders: Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Flip Saunders has led the Wizards to an 0-6 start to the season. While losses are OK, the way you lose can make a difference in the lasting view of a team. Losing by an average of 13 points a game, the effort is lacking. While Washington has solid, young talent, it's as if they're destined to lose and have no pride.

ProBasketballTalk reports that Wiz owner Ted Leonsis expected this, says they're growing. Does growth look this demoralizing? The Washington Wizards expressions are as flat as a line drive jumper. This team is practically unwatchable! Growth isn't really happening.

How is a team growing with the margin of defeat increasing? Before last nights 18 point loss to Orlando, they loss the two previous games by eight. Ted Leonsis needs to define what growth is!

This Wizards team is nice, despite this dreadful start. JaVale McGee is a gem, Blatche is a skillful (though occasionally disruptive) big and of course Wall is a cornerstone. What can get them to look like they're INTO games? What words will inspire them to get after it? What happened to effort? This Wizards team looks to be all about complacency.

Someone needs to be held accountable for this situation. Coaches aren't always at fault, but they usually take the blame. Just throwing it out there! Flip, or the players, or somebody, needs to be held accountable. If true growth and change are desired, something must change quickly.

Flip Saunders is a solid coach, but even the greatest get canned. It's not so much the firing that needs to happen, it's the accountability which isn't present. Maybe Leonsis is right and this is just the process to improvement. My only qualm is why must it be this painful to watch! Hopefully it gets better. Hopefully the Wizards get a win under their belts!

What do you think about the Wizards start to the season? Should Flip Saunders stay or should he go?

ihave nothing against flip, but he not the right coach for this young talented team the wizards need a teacher-coach such as lawrence frank as the wizards let the pistons beat them to it. lets face it grunfeld who is a good gm hired flip because he is flips friend and flip was out of ajob. first dc fans have to deal with snyder letting vinie the rat ruin the redskins becaue they where friends, i thought leonis was too smrt to allowe this to happen to his team
