Charlotte Bobcats Head Coach Mike Dunlap
The Orlando Magic and Charlotte Bobcats could combine to form a "super-team" and that collective unit would not make the playoffs this season.
Both rosters are a disaster, and each team will be awful this season—no matter who coaches them.
Which might be why each organization was forced to hire a rookie head coach.
In a quest to prove that Big East assistant coaches can make it in the NBA, Mike Dunlap arrives in Charlotte looking to turn around a league-worst mark of 7-56. He won't have Anthony Davis' help in doing so, either.
Dunlap will have Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, though, and he should at least provide some hope for the future. The idea that Ben Gordon and Gerald Henderson should lead your team in scoring certainly doesn't.
Jacque Vaughn's going to have as difficult a time replacing Stan Van Gundy in Orlando. Three years ago, I'd have told you his best player is Hedo Turkoglu. Now, I'm not sure if it's Jameer Nelson, JJ Redick, or Arron Afflalo.
In any event, tough sledding for both of these first-year head coaches heading into training camp. If either one wins 25 games, he should be named NBA Coach of the Year.
