I never liked sam... didn't like him when we first got him, didn't like him last year.. our team is able to have a winning record because of our players not our coaching... I dont think any of these guys have improved there game due to sam mitchell..
and maybe because a lot of our losing has to do with actual coaching..like sub patterns, o and d philosophy, in game adjustments and play calling..
i mean, if the raptors ran actual plays besides the high pick n roll and missed their shots, i wouldnt have beef with sam. if players were stinking it up and sam benched their a.sses for no effort, i wouldnt have beef with him. but its plainly obvious, i mean to the eyes of people who know more about ball than just made shots and missed shots, that the raptor offense and defense is extremely flawed and that sam cant make adjustments worth sh*t.
also, if you read kapono's interview in the sun about comparing sam and stan, you'd see how much respect he has for stan and how he says that stan will have u totally prepared for a team whereas sam is more of a laughing and joking type coach..any question about sam was automatically redirected to giving praise to stan. that says a lot about sams approach..and dont get it twisted...other players have also questioned sams ability to prepare them for games.
