    If the Pels miss the playoffs

    If the Pels somehow fail to even make the play-in tournament (very posiible) I have no doubt
    Willie Green will be fired. He has this team doubting themselves when it should just be the opposite.
    He is failing miserably as the HC.

    The Pels have a 7 game lead over 11 seed Houston. They're not missing the play-in tournament.

    He’s increased the team’s wins every year he’s been here. It’s Willie’s fault his star player misses a crucial game bc of a boo boo on his finger? He can’t force players to get on the court, either they suck it up and play through it or you sit and risk losing. Our players have been doing a lot of the sitting and losing the last 4-5 seasons. Also players like Trey and Herb haven’t really stepped up in BI’s absence. Don’t think this team is as deep as everyone has been clamoring the past 2 years.

    Ridiculous, this team wins in spite of WG not because of him. We blow more double-digit leads than any other NBA team. We lose more close games than any other NBA team. That's ALL COACHING

    Willie has underachieved (in the regular season) with the roster at his disposal. They have been healthy enough to be in a better position in the standings. BUT- if Willie can make a significant postseason run whilst avoiding the play-ins, you can argue it is a successful season. We are good on the road, we have diverse offensive talent in terms of skillsets and we have some quality defensive players in the roster. Willie should be judged with how he gets the players to perform in the postseason.

    One win away from best road record in franchise history. Players out there coaching themselves I guess. Just like last night when one of the worst teams in the league was whipping us in the first half. Ayton and Scoot going off and then second half Ayton was completely shut down. No coaching there whatsoever.

    Some would see this as a failure
    Record wise this would still be like..a top 5 season for this franchise. Positive progress ever year.

    Hard to believe with 3 more wins it would be the second best record in franchise history. But some people would have you believe that this team is trash. They need work and maybe a few tweaks in the off-season but the ship is definitely headed in the right direction.

    Best away record in the entire NBA, guess that has nothing to do with coaching also.
