Re: Mitchell: I was forced to go easy on Bargnani
I always viewed mitch as a hardass who could motivate his players (which was his best characteristic as a coach) but I never really viewed him as the type of guy who had that inkling for drawing up good plays in game or off court. Maybe I went too far saying he sucked in that regard but it was a weakness of his imo. Jay when he took over, I did notice some really nice plays on the offensive end but he couldnt really motivate the players.
But Boogie is right mitch was notorious for his lack of in game adjustments as was triano and now casey. Keeping mitch with triano drawing up the plays wouldnt have been that bad tbh but BC threw them under the bus.
