D.C. Approval Rating: Ernie Grunfeld

(2006 photo by Jonathan Newton)

Taking a one-day breather from sports media approval ratings, we will instead cast our votes in the direction of a D.C. sports non-media figure. Today's entry, in honor of the pending draft, is Ernie Grunfeld.

This will be Grunfeld's fifth draft with the Wizards; four of his last five picks are on the current roster. He has made-over virtually the entire roster since joining the Wizards; only Brendan Haywood and Etan Thomas predate him with the franchise. Among his bigger moves: signing Gilbert as a restricted free agent; dealing Jerry Stackhouse, Christian Laettner and the rights to Devin Harris for Antawn Jamison; and dealing Kwame Brown and Laron Profit for Caron Butler and Chucky Atkins.

Grunfeld's Wiz won their first playoff series in more than two decades against the Bulls in 2004-05, and have four straight postseason appearances. But they haven't won a playoff series since that Bulls trip, and have a total playoff record of 8-18 in Grunfeld's tenure.

Before joining the Wiz, Grunfeld guided the Bucks to three playoff berths in four years, and the Knicks to nine straight trips to the Eastern Conference semis.

Bearing in mind that you have just two options, here's your chance to judge Ernie Grunfeld as of late-June, 2008. Choose carefully, and offer explanation below.

Previously: Daniel Snyder (43 percent approval)
