Should OKC Fire Billy Donovan for Struggles?

The Thunder are 8-12 in the season despite having a Big 3



Coming into their 2nd season in the post-Kevin Durant era, the Oklahoma City Thunder looked like a team who are about wreck havoc in the league after landing Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in two separate deals that assembled another Big 3 in the Western Conference alongside Russell Westbrook.

However, things haven't been well for the Thunder after 20  games into the current season as they fell to 8-12 which ties them for the 10th and 11th places with the Los Angeles Lakers. And despite the amount of talent that this team has, the Thunder are currently on a 3-game losing streak after dropping another game against the Orlando Magic, 121-108.

The question looms now: Should the Thunder smash panic button and fire Billy Donovan?

While it's unfair for the fans of the Thunder to blame Billy Donovan, alone, for the struggles of their team, if the front office wants to turn things around and prevent making themselves become the league's laughingstock, change must be done. And it should start from the top. Now, this pundit on wheels isn't saying that Billy Donovan should be fired. But, if you look at the numbers offensively, the Thunder are 23rd in the league in points per game, and 27th in the league in field goal percentage. And that's pretty bad for a team that has three players who are known as heavy scorers.

Defensively, Oklahoma ranks number 2 in the league in terms of limiting the opposing team's output. However, will that be enough to keep Billy Donovan at the helm?

Conclusion

Firing Billy Donovan MIGHT be the first step towards turning things around in Oklahoma. While success doesn't happen overnight, the Thunder must realize that they want to fully-utilize their Big 3, they will have to find a coach who can make 3 stars work together as one, solid unit. And in their 20 games, so far, Billy Donovan hasn't done that, yet.
