    Default Butch Carter

    He was on PTS with Bob McCown today. All i can say, i could listen to this guy talk about basketball all day. He knows the game.

    They also talk about the Raps. He pretty much said everything's that's been said here. He mentioned that he thinks the Raps should move Bargnani. He praised how much DD has improved his game. And he thinks one of the reason the Raps struggle early in the season specially in the 4th is the substitution pattern.

    I heard him on the show last week as well. I'd like to see him get another kick at the can, but if I remember correctly he's said in the past that he's retired from coaching? Not sure, but I think I've heard that be said. He speaks the TROOF and was a pretty good coach for us.

    When he wasn't fighting with his own players or dreaming up crazy plots being perpetrated by opposing players. Butch turned the raps around but also had VC and TMac just as they were getting their isht together and he got waaaay crazy in the playoffs.

    A good interview if you can hear it. Carter is very candid and talks about a number of things including:
    - injuries
    - developing players
    - summer league being a waste
    - JV/Bargnani tandem
    - More Bargnani, and the idea of trading him
    - Talks about how important it is to win the first quarter and why

    Butch was great in Toronto. His firing had nothing to do with his abilities/inabilities as a coach.

    Liked him as a coach,

    but the man has issues that have kept him from the league for a reason. He points fingers and creates scape goats. If its not Camby, it is Grunwald, always knows best with 20/20 hindsight.

    He was more of a distraction and divider to the team, rather then someone who brings people together. If he was such a great coach, he would have mitigated the Tmac VC dilemma, but he is a finger pointer and a chameleon.
