They didnt fire him beucase they jsut extended his contract and fireing him would have cost a nice chunk of change. IF we do shit this year, he is gone imo.
First of all it was the 06-07 season (coach of the year).Secondly BC put a good team together,but Sam Mitchell had to deal with a whole new roster with 9 new players and turn them into a cohesive unit and did an unbelieveable job doing so.If anybody thinks it's easy to have 9 new players buy into a system and win 47 games,win a division title and help change the perception of the Raptors
within the league they're crazy.
Did he do it alone.Not by any stretch,but he was a huge reason why that team came together the way it did.
