    Default We need a New Head Coach!

    Is it just me or does anyone else think that Triano is getting a free pass. I mean, Why do you trade for a guy worth 14.5 million dollars and have him sit the bench? Was he hurt today? And what ever happened to letting the ones with the hot hands stay in the game? We got killed today and Triano is not calling time out! Atlanta was up by 21 in the forth and Toronto scored 5 points, Atlanta called a time out and that was that. Why exactly did Basketball U.S. want Triano again?

    What do you think? Can we do better with a head up, hard nose coach?

    Why replace him, he's the only coach in a long time that drops f-bombs on live TV like it's nobody's business!!

    At the 1:28 mark, he said it. It may have been the bleeped version. On live TV, it was there. If you go to Raptors.com, the 1:28 segment was entirely bleeped out. Funny.

    I agree with you 100% Dr. Hannabal Lecter. Perfect example of that is lol, "Wait for it" The Bad News Bears! That's what we are at the moment. Need a leader to get us over the Hump!

    Brendan Malone-NBA Champion
    Butch Carter-Great coach
    Lenny Wilkens-Hall of Fame
    Sam Mitchell-COY
    Jay Triano-Olympic Champion

    Malone's teams-expansion crap, fired for trying to win
    Carter's Teams-Pretty good actually, fired for trying to takeover the franchise
    Wilken's teams-Olajuon was shit, Vince was shit, fired for being semi-retired
    Mitchell's teams-Garbo goes down, replaced by.....fired for wanting a better team
    Triano's teams-If I told you this was an expansion team, you wouldn't be surprised. Currently dropping f-bombs and looking like a guy who's sarting to understand why smitch was pissed off half the time. In other words, gaining experince in the league, and finding out coaching a franchise with no history of winning and mediocre in house talent isn't as easy as it looked.
    Bottom line, these guys can coach, but noone can win with scrubs.

    Phil Jackson's teams- some of the all-time greats
    Red Auerbach's teams-lead by the greatest of all-time
    Pat Riley's teams-some of the all-time greats

    Personally I thought Triano went to head coach because of his relationship with Bosh at the time. It seemed like a good move to make him happy. But now the CB1 is gone, I dont see what he brings to the table other than a low-cost canadian flavour. Anyone know what his contract is like?
    Although no other coach will get wins out of this team this year.

    I really hope you were joking with your post.

    Butch Carter was probably the best coach this team had. Wilkins was one of the winningest coaches of all time.

    How was he able to get away with dropping the F-bombs anyway without such much as a peep from B.C. and company? That was crazy. First time I have every witnessed that!

    He's done it before when he made references to his players hitting against a pitcher like Lincecum (he was making a baseball analogy). That one was worse than this one. It's funny because I fell asleep and the game ended. I woke up, barely conscious and woke up completely when he dropped it on live TV - classic!

    He's been doing it all year. Earlier this year on a TSN national broadcast he let out the s_word and I've heard the f bomb on at least a few occasions this year.

    It's getting pretty pathetic now. All of a sudden he's the tough swearing coach that can't keep his emotions in check?

    I hear this guy will be avaliable soon:

    What if... Blazers had drafted both Drexler, Jordan?

    From 1992 Beginner's Guide to the NBA Finals, The Oregonian's special section. Published 6/3/1992.

    Michael Jordan was the #3 pick in the 1984 draft, after Portland selected Sam Bowie second.

    Yeah I hate it when we lose to teams better than us. Def Jay's fault. What a clown. And why didn't he put Peja in? So what if he was wearing a sports jacket and jeans!

    I'm going to agree with Employee (assuming his post was pure sarcasm). I'm not so sure its Jay's fault.
    Though I was a big supporter of Sam Mitchell, and still believe he's the man for the job, Jay Triano is a very smart coach who is just working with what he's got.
    I think if you give him a real cast to work with, he could do something special with them.

    No, We don't.

    1) We need a New GM who can recognise talent and actually bring players to this team who can play. This team is full of scrubs that have been sold to the fans as players with " Potential" and " Future" While none of them are/will be more than a solid NBA reserve one day.

    The fans are buying into thr BS that is sold to them by this GM and end result is what we saw today.

    Look at Amir, Weems, DD and Bayless, the Young Buns of Toronto, the future, and see how they did today.

    I agree with Raptor4Ever, especially with the "Young Onez" fairytale...Who is Weems? Who is Amir? Are they going to be as good as they are trying to persuade us? I doubt...I dont know about DD yet, but the others are mediocre players, with some good nights. Veeery inconsistent players. Add Kleiza with them, a player i adored last year. But last year he was so inconsistent as now...

    Peja was out with a Swollen knee, way to jump to conclusions.
