    Default MLSE needs to get it together and fast

    I saw something on sports illustrated that said Lawrence Frank was getting an interview with some team, I don't remember which one, and it doesn't matter. I know there are people in this forum who like Frank and wanted him to be our coach. I'ts more than just Frank though, there are a ton of teams interviewing right now. If Triano's fate won't be decided until Colangelo's, then the team is at a stalemate. They won't even start looking at coaches until something is decided and by then the big names could be signed elsewhere. If MLSE doesn't get it together and make a decision soon then they're dumber than I thought.

    I don't know if I wanna celebrate for a human casualty, its not in my nature. One thing I found suspicious was that the CNN article about him didn't have anything to do factual evidence according to his death, just a biography of his life. They say he was killed in Pakistan but they say that only in the title. This can just be a ploy for Obama to gain more trust in the US, for more security for re-election. I do not support terrorism, but I'm not a gonna be fed information without evidence.

    Damn, At 6'6" I thought he may have had the tools to play point-forward.

    lol, he'd probably pull out a ak47 half way through the game and just shoot the opposing team.

    Default Wtf

    What does osama bin laden have to do with MLSE needing to get it together again??

    I dont think Laurence Frank would be at the top of my list for new coaches.

    On a side note since we are a bit off topic. WTF is up with RR these days. Barely next to no

    new/interesting threads up? Why is it that during the most important part of the season,

    there is hardly any discussion about these playoff games?

    My Bin Laden comment was a JOKE!!!! I woke up to it on every channel, so I was like wooptydoo about it. My opinions on the matter DON'T matter, so I'm not gonna get into it. My comment, again, was a joke.

    I think if the Raptors were in the playoffs, there would be a lot more activity around the forums, but since the lottery isn't until mid May, and the Draft not til June, there really isn't much Raptor related news to discuss right now - MLSE does have to get its SH*T together though, and aside from Devlin doing some of the TNT games, and Bosh still alive in the playoffs, there is next to nothing on Raptor related material during the playoffs right now.....give it a few weeks, when we have our draft position, or if/when MLSE announces something.....more forums will turn up then

    The gap between the end of the regular season and just before the lottery is when people take a little break. You'll typically see it happen again in late July to late August. Raptors fans don't take much time off.

    One thing I'd like to add to this thread is that you won't see the coaching postion settled until the GM position is settled. Because of this you may seem some of those assitants hit the road if opportunity knocks. This sadens me because I have a lot of respect for Alex English and I'd like to see him stick around. I think PJ is locked up past this season. I guess worst case scenario is him taking over the head coach spot... Wait, no, the worst case is Jay getting extended. Sorry about that.

    They didn't want a grave site that could turn into a martyrs' monument. The U.S. has helicopters on aircraft carriers off the coast of Pakistan.

    He was in Philly too, and kind of lost the team at points. IMO he has underachieved at times with the teams he has had. He wouldn't be terrible, but would he be great?

    dont run down the hill to fuck one cow walk down the hill and fuck them all. there are a lot of good coaches and smart gm's out there. we need to take our time and find the right one for the job rather than the one with the most hype surrounding there name.
