    Mitchell - coach of the year
    Jose- free throw record
    Kapono - 3 pt champion
    Ross- slam dunk champion

    We are Raptors fans-it's the small victories outside of actual wins that matter.

    I'd be fine if they brought back Smitch, Kapono, and Jose....
    Ahhh memories

    Not sure I understand the idea that Butch Carter had a stacked roster. He basically had an up-and-coming Carter, and spare parts.
    he had VC,TMac,ADavis,Oakley,Willis,Muggsy,Alvin Williams,dee brown,Christie,Dell Curry, that's hardly VC and spare parts!

    @Thead : Neither do I. Triano may not be a disciplinarian like casey, popovich, larry brown, but he knows his x's and o's. he has a much better offense than casey, and ball always moves(doesn't always rely on iso, whether it's carter, bosh, mike james, tj ford, bargs, derozan, gay, lowry, allan friggin andersen, john lucas). And we almost made it to the playoffs, and were actually a middle seed in the east before rupaul quit and shut himself down after the all-star weekend to go to southbeach (also with lebron screwing with us, played in a game vs raps = raps lost; DNP vs bulls = bulls won --> bulls got the 8th seed by 1 game).

    TMac and Christie were role players. Davis was a backup 1 year prior. Oakley was a grizzled vet well past his prime (even moreso for Willis). Alvin Williams barely saw the floor. Dee Brown was as "good" as John Lucas, and Curry was a one-dimensional shooter.

    Like I said, Carter plus spare parts. Butch deserves credit for taking this group to the playoffs.

    I hate to rain on your parade, but I think thead's remark was sarcastic, because Triano wins by default.
