    Man, Anyone who isn't listening to Jalen and Jacoby giving the people what they want every week on the Jalen Rose Show from Grantland is sorely missing out. Always was a Jalen fan but since I found this about a year ago it's gone to a whole new level. Funny as hell, talks about all kinds of things candidly (the 81 pts, how shit Smitch was, stepping under Kobe, Fab Five days, player trades...) that you never hear guys be so frank about. So refreshing in this day and age of "brand" protection and prewritten soundbites.

    Gotta check it out, if just for the stories about Champagnin' and Campaignin', Imports and The Mansion. Only thing he's not touched on so far is Skip.
    Couldnt agree more. Havent missed a BS report since they started ... but Jalen and Jacoby are a damn close second ... hes classic .. and super relevant about all kinds of shit .. bball, football, pop culture, you name it. Everyone should be listening ...

    i was just thinking the same thing..

    VC was always hurt & in the last season here clearly mailed it in most games he did play... to bad Smitch couldnt back up the talk though... it would have been nice to see Smitch Slam VC into the trainers table instead...VC his whole carreer has been the type to need an extra kick in the ass to play hard... ask Oakley!...VC is a douche
    imagine how many nights VC would have mailed it in if Triano was the head coach back then! LOL that would have been scary to see
    I once heard someone, think it was AD or Oakley, someone from the team, anyway, they said VC was the strongest guy on the team and it wasn't even close. The bigs would be grinding away, pumping iron and Vince could walk in, pick up the heaviest set and match whatever anyone else was doing without breaking a sweat. He was so naturally gifted and never really ever had to work hard. I'm paraphrasing the shit out of this but we all know that his lazy attitude caught up to him eventually. At anyrate he'd take Smitch in a heartbeat, jumpers knee and all.
    LET'S GO RAP-TORS!!!!!

    That's really interesting to hear. I hadn't heard this before. Never looked strong, little muscle bulk etc. I always thought he just didn't do the work required to get strong.

    I don't understand.....people think Smitch was a bad coach? Unfortunately, we had one of our most successful years with him.

    Why does everyone think he was so bad (besides the fact that he was blatantly out coached by Lawrence Frank in that playoff series, and then again the next year against orlando.....

    The one thing that pissed me off about Smitch's reign of terror was the 81 pts by Kobe. I mean geez man, send an automatic double-team already. Make Kobe give up the ball rather than letting him embarrass a franchise in the record books (you'd think this idea would've crossed Smitch's mind after Kobe reached the 60 point mark). Who cares if it leaves a Laker player wide open? Midway through the 4th quarter, the game was over anyway.

    At that late stage in the game, the Raptors weren't playing for a win, they were playing for their dignity....and lost both (the latter thanks to Smitch's inability to adjust).
