Where's your proof that he didn't? Given all the constant doubletalk, constant excusing himself (and when he is declaring accountability, its absolutely empty; juss platitudes asking for a chance to do better), constant blaming of others while he still has his job, and constant bad & irrational moves, I'm never gonna trust a word that comes from Bryan's mouth.

As for this Raptors team:

SF: JJohnson, Weems, Kleiza
PF: AJohnson, EDavis, Dorsey-IR
C : Bargnani, Ajinca, Alabi-IR
PG: JCalderon, JBayless, JWright
SG: DeRozan, Barbosa, REvans-IR

-that rotation is perfect for Coach Triano's Flex as all players are multidimensional, thus we could've improved upon our already top-10 efficient offense, but Reggie hindered that by being in the rotation.
-with Demar's ability to create off the bounce, Jose's domination of the pick'n'roll, Andrea being a constant threat from everywhere no matter what type of game he was having, and everyone on those 1st 2 units ability to shoot & finish, we had all it took to score well in crunchtime - yet all too often we lost games based on effort.
-Jose was playing the best defense he's ever played, I displayed in my prev. post here that Andrea has had awsome defensive games vs. the best players/teams, and w/everyone's athleticism, energy and background (Demar @ USC, James @ WF, Amir w/Chauncey's Pistons, etc.), we had all it took to be much better defensively than we were. We also had enough depth for if players got in foul trouble and maintain our sets (obviously thwarted w/the nothingness that Reggie & Dorsey gave)....yet we never D'd up.
-Given Jose's role w/the Spanish National Team (that's always in contention for gold), and the character of the guys on the 1st two units, the tone was set for unselfish & playing for eachother -which they did, but given their skillsets, we could've meshed even better, but no effort took dominance instead. The only consistent thing about this 10-11 team was good (not great) offense (despite Reggie getting rotation burn), and inconsistency in every other area.

I've said before that I believe Bryan's on the take - collusion. I believe he had done his best to sell the idea of tanking (rationale being this team supposedly needs a high lotto pick) to MLSE, and they've 'played' along.

And when things get heated, someone else takes the fall. This time it's Coach Triano.
