In order to participate in Chicago's annual St. Patrick's Day celebration -- not to mention mourn my Boilermaker's historic fail in the Big 10 Tournament -- I had to forego my usual Worst of the Weekend post. Instead, I give you this phototastic tribute to commemorate the end of the Mike Dunleavy Sr. era in Clipperland. These are the images we must never forget.

Note that I only found one really good Dunleavy facepalm. If you can find another, please send it in and I will add it to this post. By the way, I've decided to name the pose in which a coach adopts a pissy/confused/constipated look while standing with his palms face up "The Dunleavy."

They should bring back that serial in which Craig T. Nelson was a coach, and add Dunleavy to the cast. Dunleavy and Nelson star as "the coaches"

Poor Purdue. I know Hummel was the glue of that team, but I didn't know he was the tape, the nails, the screws, the superglue, the rubberbands, the legos, and the pinched fingers holding that team together.

Dumbleavey - awesome. Why does he keep his Hollywood Hulk Hogan haircut?

0:08-0:14 is a classic dunleavy moment/expression.

Imagine Dunleavy Sr. being your dad...and a coach at the same time. Poor Junior.

At least Dunleavy can always fall back on his degree from Krusty Krustofski's Klown Kollege.

Turn that frown upside down!

Raymond: This is why Junior had to stand out somehow, and having what I think is this season's worst single-game suck differential puts him on a similar plane of bawful to Daddy Dearest!

CAPTCHA: "cruct", i.e. "It's amazing that Grant Hill hasn't needed a cruct or two during his Suns tenure."

the reactions from the players dunleavy is interacting with are just as good as dunleavy's antics. especially al thorton's look of complete defeat and JET just looking at the ground.

It's beautiful. Both the GIS for "lacktion" and the ZBo pic.

My Dunleavy Father/Son Manlove submission didn't make the cut? I'm severly dissapointed.

The ultimate question (as Dan and I pondered in Reno this weekend) must be asked:

If the Clippers don't care about winning - only being cheap - then why fire Dunleavy, ever? I mean, was Kim Hughes that much less expensive? It's not like any performance raises would ever be needed here...

Thank God Dunleavy didn't shoot Burt Reynolds at the end of The Longest Yard when the warden wanted him to.

The Clippers chasing Lebron is scary. He'd probably blow out both ACLs on a tour of their practice facility.

you'll notice (at least where they're at home) there's not one smiling face in the background. i can't believe they fired him. his approval rating was at least .4%

In 2008 I had the pleasure of going to see the Lakers-Celtics in the Finals for Game 5 (my one and only Finals game ever seen in person), and I sat in the last row of the lower bowl at Staples Center. Directly behind me (and above me) was the restaurant they have there in Staples, and Mike Dunleavy, Sr. sat at the table directly above and behind me, by himself, for the whole game. It was very odd to have this man sitting literally 3 feet from me for the game, and us only being separated by a thick pane of glass. The whole game he just sat there passively watching and I couldn't tell who he was rooting for, if he was rooting at all. As soon as the game was over he quickly left.

That's my one and only Mike Dunleavy, Sr. story. Goodnight sweet prince :)

For anyone who didn't get The Longest Yard reference, here is a photo of Dunleavy's twin Ed Lauter:

Here's a collage of some of the Dunleavy faces through the years.

Here's a funny video advocating for Dunleavy's termination....looks like it worked

Beautiful. The only thing missing was a pic of Dumbleavy during a time-out, diagramming a play as all the Clipper players ignore him to stare at the floor or into the stands. That would've put a nice bow on the whole collection.

Why is Adam Arkin sitting next to Dunleavy in so many of these pictures?
