Butch Carter may be back in the league
 
This guy was just plain horrible in Toronto.

But MJ might give him a second chance.

Two league sources say that the search for Bernie Bickerstaff's successor in Charlotte is underway -- and one of the candidates is former Raptors coach Butch Carter.

The sources maintain that Carter has been promised an interview with Bobcats minority owner Michael Jordan. But it isn't known if Carter is a favorite to get the job.

The Bobcats already announced that Bickerstaff won't be returning as coach next season, though he is expected to maintain an executive role in the front office.

If the Bobcats are considering Carter, it will be a provocative move. His three-year tenure as Raptors coach culminated in a 45-win season and the franchise's first playoff appearance. But he was fired after that season in June 2000 for a number of controversies, including a short-lived lawsuit he filed against former Raptor Marcus Camby (for referring to Carter as a liar); Carter's statements that the NBA was conspiring to move Tracy McGrady and Vince Carter out of Toronto; and his failed attempt to acquire the GM title in Toronto, based on his argument that he needed more power to recruit free agents.

MJ said Butch Carter or Sam Mitchell if he is fired (based on reports that Ivaroni was Colangelos guy).

MJ continues to prove he is simply not a brain when it comes to personnel and managing a franchise. He gets these free reigns on name only.

No he wasn't.

Dumb person, good coach.


EDIT: Guess all I said was already in the article.

Mitchell would be good on a team where there was co-coaches. he could make the half time inspirational speaches and shout at the refs...oh, and he could do the press conferences.

Maybe what I'm asking for is a two headed monster coach.

Butch was a good coach in Toronto. He sued a player and tried to get his GM fired. Thats what did him in.

I actually liked Butch...thought he got the most out of the Raps at the time..but he wear's he emotions on his sleeve..which get's him into trouble from time to time..

I loved Butch, if I had to name a favourite Raptors coach of all time, it'd be him easily. He was a good coach, he just was prone to little bouts of insanity here and there.

He wasn't bad at all. He led the team to their first playoff spot, and they fired him for some reason after their first playoff season.

MJ is attracted to blacks. hes gotta rep his race.

I think MJ like Butch cause he pulls no punches with players. Will tell a guy in a second that he's not putting in the needed effort. That's something MJ can get behind.

Looking at the makeup of the 'Cats Butch wouldn't be bad for them cause none of their key guys are known to be primadonnas.
