Was listening to today's segment on the McCown show on Fan590 with ex Raptor coach Butch Carter and the discussion turned to George Karl and the Raptors troubles. Included in this was the LeGarie name who happens to be one of the more powerful agents of coaches and management personnel in the NBA.
And then I was floored...LeGarie apparently is/was agent for 11 management and coaching employees of the Raptors this past season. This would include BC, Stefanski, Casey and all his coaches. For those into conspiracy possibilities and conflict of interest situations in decision making on all basketball matters....take it away!!
Is this healthy? Can there be honest disagreement among these employees? Could there be decisions made that were of the back scratching variety and ultimately not in the best interests of the Raptors? I thought I'd put this out there and include a relatively old (2010) piece by Peter Vecsey (not one I particularly care for) who has an illuminating view of LeGarie's style. The radio segment might be available on the Sportsnet site later if anyone wants to listen.
