The Blazers are 2-3, and lots of heat is falling on dear old Coach Nate--who has had his critics in town for years, but until recently hasn't provided them with any REAL ammunition. (Complaints about mishandling guys like Telfair or Sergio nonwithstanding--what have these guys done since leaving the Blazers, after all?) We've had at least one player (Miller) call McMillan out during the pre-season, albeit over a personal roster issue, and the team isn't meshing.
The justification Nate's defenders use--"this is a young team, he's teaching them the game"--is becoming less available, as the only rookies on the roster don't get any PT (2 of them being injured), and the team appears to now be well-scouted. 29 other coaches have the book on how to beat the Blazers, and the Blazers haven't yet adjusted.
So.... how hot is Nate's seat?
