    What does it matter where he's from as long as he can coach? That's a pretty ignorant statement. Have you read up on his accomplishments? Have you taken a look at his record when it comes to coaching?
    i want someone who has coached in the nba already...i really don't care for what he has done with lesser talent in europe

    it's still a very ignorant statement and he's been warned on multiple occasions in regards to posts similar to the one he has made in this thread.

    Messina's teams in which he has coached had players from all over the globe, so i'm sure most of the communication to the players was done in english.
    how am i being racist bro? Wow! All i said is i don't want a euro coach!

    Listen bro, when you say things like "I don;t want a Euro coach", it pretty much leaves itself up for interpretation. Instead of saying "I don't want a European coach", couldn't you have just said something simple like "He's never coached in the NBA" or "He has no experience in the NBA at a head coaching level, so I would prefer that the Raptors went in an opposite direction".

    You're not the martyr in this whole situation. It's yourself that you should be blaming. Your choice of words were very poor.

    What other coaches have come over from Europe to land an NBA head coaching position? The only one that comes off the top of my head is Mike D'Antoni, and he's had a pretty decent career so far. I don't see a problem with grabbing a coach from Europe - in the end, we'd still be getting a guy who has coached in a professional league where men making a living, it's not like he's coaching kids at an NCAA level. That's more of a difficult transition.

    On the surface with no expanding on the comment, it's a pretty distateful statement.
