Should Pistons fire Dumars, too?

Just 50 games into his first season there, Maurice Cheeks was fired by the Detroit Pistons. His record (21-29) certainly wasn't stellar, and it's hard to deny there's talent on the team with Andre Drummond, Josh Smith, Greg Monroe, Brandon Jennings. However, this is far from the first coach let go by general manager Joe Dumars, who has had considerable struggles since constructing Detroit's 2004 championship team. In fact, many -- including ESPN Insider Amin Elhassan -- point to the GM as the reason why this franchise hasn't made the playoffs since 2008-09. Should he go, too? Can Detroit turn things around soon?
