You need to change the design of that blog. It's so disgusting, random and over-used.

Unless there is a veteran coach the Raptors have in mind, I don't see the point.

Raptors are a team with no real center or point guard... or small forward for that matter. It's tough to blame the shortfalls of this team on the coach.

Colangelo should have addressed the bargnani situation (trade him) 2 years ago and it continues to cost us.

Well they'll probably address one of those issues in the draft. Either Kemba or Knight or Kanter or Valanucias (sp?) or Biyombo...

Same thing I said in the Raptors forum about this:

Unless they get one of the absolute best coaches in the league (Sloan or Adelman) it makes little difference until there is a massive talent upgrade on the roster. Also, unless it's one of those establisehd coaches, expect the next guy to be just another Colangelo puppet like Jay was.

IMO, coaching in the NBA means little unless you have one of those rare legend-quality coaches. It still comes down to the players on the floor and as long as your coach isn't a total moron, you can win. Triano was just doing what he thought would extend his employment and that was to follow orders from the top. That's something Sam Mitchell wasn't doing and look what it got him. Triano is just another scapegoat for the GM.

So to summarize, like 90% of my posts on here, Bryan Colangelo sucks.

Don't really have any left, thank God. McBob started shooting from range a bit to try and spread the floor but sucks at it. Well, I guess Posey if you count him as a big man, he's definitely wide these days.

I don't know why but I keep thinking Eric Mussleman to the Raps makes sense.

Source: Donnie Walsh questions if Mike D'Antoni is right for Knicks; coach could bolt for Toronto



Quote:
MIAMI - Donnie Walsh has never said he is looking to make a coaching move, but perhaps Mike D'Antoni will make one for him.

D'Antoni, entering the final year of his contract as Knicks coach, could emerge as a candidate in Toronto, where the Raptors announced Wednesday that coach Jay Triano will not return.

Toronto president Bryan Colangelo has a good history with D'Antoni from their time with the Phoenix Suns. Colangelo hired D'Antoni and together they transformed the Suns into one of the NBA's most successful and entertaining teams.

"I believe that bringing in a new voice as head coach will accelerate the progress we are looking to make in the coming years," Colangelo said in a release Wednesday.

Coincidentally, the one knock on D'Antoni's teams is that they don't focus enough on defense. During a conference call with reporters Wednesday, Colangelo said he wanted an experienced coach and one with a "defensive-minded" perspective.

Jeff Van Gundy would be an obvious choice but the former Knicks coach and current ABC/ESPN analyst is happy in his current role. According to a source, Van Gundy wants to wait at least another year before he returns to coaching.

As of Wednesday, Colangelo had not asked the Knicks for permission to speak with D'Antoni, who is hoping to remain in the New York area until his son graduates high school in two years.

However, the Knicks have given no indication that they are open to negotiating a new deal with D'Antoni. Sources close to Walsh claim that the team president has privately questioned whether D'Antoni's system is the right fit for the Knicks.

Walsh's most successful clubs with the Indiana Pacers were good halfcourt teams, both offensively and defensively. The News reported in April that Walsh may insist that D'Antoni revamp his staff to hire an assistant coach in charge of defense. In the past, D'Antoni has been reluctant to make such a hire. In Phoenix, he refused Steve Kerr's request to make current Bulls head man Tom Thibodeau his defensive coach.

After losing at least 50 games in his first two seasons, D'Antoni guided the Knicks to a 42-40 record this year. It was their first winning season in 10 years. However, the Knicks were swept by the Boston Celtics in the first round of the playoffs and several veteran players began to question the coach.

The pending lockout suggests that D'Antoni will remain in New York for at least one more year. Also, Walsh may feel obligated to give D'Antoni a full training camp to prove what he can do with Amar'e Stoudemire and late-season pickups Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups.

Should D'Antoni leave for another job or get fired, there are viable candidates available to replace him, including Rick Adelman, Lawrence Frank and Mark Jackson, who is a finalist for the Golden State job. There is also a report that the Knicks may pursue

Kentucky coach John Calipari, who is represented by CAA, the same agency that represents Anthony and Hornets point guard Chris Paul, who can become a free agent in 13 months.

I am 99.9% sure he will stay in New York but there are still that 0.1% of hope left.
