    Default Triano's F Bomb

    Yeah, I guess this deserves its own thread.

    Triano sums up the play of the Raptors with one awesome sentence.

    Wait for it. It's worth it.

    Triano failed to get the team ready for this game.

    After blowing the game vs the Kings they came out in the first quarter playing like they were sleep walking.

    If there are no rebounds for Evans he is useless. His defense was. Geez he didn't play any defense in the first quarter.

    How many times is Jefferson going to run the same post up move vs Bargnani before Bargnani wakes up and figures out how to defend it?

    The starters played better in the 3rd quarter but it was clear that as the quarter ran down and into the fourth quarter that they ran out of gas.

    Dorsey looked pretty good despite his fouls.

    Bargnani overall had a nice game along with DeRozan. Barbosa also played pretty good. Everyone else except for Dorsey looked like they wanted to go back to their hotel room and watch a movie.

    What the f**k are you going to do?

    Get your team prepared that is what.

    Maybe even change the starting lineup.

    Finally, we got the right coach mentality, now if that can only translate it to the players....

    Somewhere in a dark corner, PJ Carlesimo is grinning with his evil smile and rubbing his hands together as he ponders the length of time it will take for him to be promoted as a head coach for one last chance at glory



    and reviving his dead head coaching career from the grave

    (make no mistake about the reason PJ signed with the Raptors as an assistent head coach).

    As critical as I am of Bargs and Triano, I really felt that the Raps had a chance in Sacramento and Utah. Last night, the Jazz lead went down to as much as 1 point (81-80). It's the 4th quarter meltdown that I attribute more to Jay though. Based on the team's recent performance, it's Jay who's going to get the boot. The reality is that his coaching attributes are suited for younger players. However, when it comes to crunch time, the coddling has to stop. I'm detecting a pattern - decent in the first 3 quarters, down on the fourth. What bothers me the most is the defensive meltdown near the end. If the team cannot find ways to score, they should at least try to hold their opponents down until they get their offensive flow back. I guess in a way, this is to be expected (without a true leader on this team). If things fall apart, Jay will be the first to go because it's harder to trade 12 players.

    Too bad that Jay can only drop F-bombs during media scrums and not during the times when it really matters.

    That is funny.

    I don't even think PJ is the answer, he's just more of the same, our players will tune him out too just as the Blazers did. I want Jerry Sloan's assistant, Phil Johnson, here. That guy has to know some stuff working with Sloan all those years. Pair him with a hard-ass assistant and maybe you got something. Maybe.

    much like how "ball!" was the catchphrase last season, this season, it's gonna be "what the fuck are you gonna do?"

    "decent in the first 3 qtrs...."...dont know how u can say that when the Jazz dropped 41 pts. in the 1st? I agree the 4th has been a consistent problem...is it conditioning, the second unit, no goto guy or all?

    I read that Johnson is tied to the hip with Sloan. He either takes over from JS if for some reason he leaves or goes off into the sunset with him. He would be a good choice but would he get the autonomy here that he sees Sloan gets in Utah?

    He would have to, otherwise he would not leave. He's been around long enough to know that without control of the team, a head coach has no power to change anything.

    I really don't think we can blame this entire loss on Triano. I know I'm in the minority but I actually want Triano to finish his contract and then be evaluated. For what we have I actually think we're not playing TOO bad. I hate the knee jerk reaction that so many fans and GM's have to fire a coach when their team starts sucking. It's like parents that blame their kid's teachers on their bad marks when their kid is actually a schitzo retard. Stability can go a long way with a team, especially when players get accustomed to systems and teammates.

    Of course this doesn't play for every example, but the amount of coaching changes in the NBA is pretty baffling to me.

    And don't forgot why PJ got fired. His Thunder was stinking it up major and then had a huge turnaround once he was replaced.

    Great quote. The Jazz are a good example of what can happen if you let a coach and players stick around, learn and gel. Sloan has been in Utah since the 80's, the Raps have had how many coaches in the last 15 years? Let Jay coach, keep the young guys around to develop together and grow the team through smart drafting. BC needs to put his bat away 'cause those homerun swings have not been working.

    Love Triano, the guy, ambivalent towards the coach. But this is a terrible 22-26 win team, and that's fine (I make 50 bucks if they win 17 games, and lose 50 if they hit 30) and there's little this team can do with one of the worst PG tandems in the league (defensively, especially) and an Italian man child whose poetry offensively and Ke$ha in defense and rebounding.
