Default Alvin Williams says Turk et al should just shut up

A few things:

- He says athletes thirst for attention and social media is just feeding into that.
- He never paid attention to the media when he played. Always tried to be honest, positive and consistent when dealing with the media.
- When egos and hurt feelings get invloved and guys are sensitive, they usually express themselves by blaming others.
- Just shut up we had a bad season, changes have been made, go in a different direction and start again.
- The Raps need to set a foundation starting right away with what they want from the team. Need effort, intensity, need to play hard and smart and that alone will win you games. And everyone needs to be held accountable and play hard. If you don't they'll find someone else who will.
- You need talent and effort. The Raps may not have household names, but they have talent. All that doesn't matter though if they don't give effort.
- Jarrett Jack can be the leader of this team. Last year he was finding his way to start the year and guys were waiting for Turk and Bosh to lead.

Alvin Williams on the fan590 (from yesterday)

Here's an interview with E. Smith talking to Alvin yesterday. Interesting interview, gotta love Alvin. He discusses athletes and twitter, moving on without Bosh/Hedo...

Great summary Acie. It's funny that this was done yesterday and nobody put it up until now and we both post it at the same time 24hrs later..

ya that's nice and all, but seeing as how he is part of this coaching staff it would be nicer if he could instill some of that onto this current crop of players. It's now his job to teach the kids.

I didn't see much of that last year to be honest.

The more I hear that Jack could be the leader of the team the more i cringe.....are we really going to suck ass this year...count on it if Jarett Jack is going to be our leader. The fans will eat him up this year its just a matter of time.

Well Jose will never be our leader. Especially considering that if he stays he'll pull something by November. It's funny, everyone associated with the team, coaches, reporters say that Jack is a leader. Nobody says Jose is much of a leader. I guess they all know nothing, or maybe it's because when Jose went down last season for 6 weeks we played our best basketball of the season with Jack as one of our leaders. But then again, you know better right?

So start cringing.

I never said once that anyone said Jose wasn't a leader. What i said was that they don't say he is, but they say Jack is. The only thing coming out of my ass is a big steamer, twice a day on a good day.

Really don't give a rats ass which one is a Raptor as long as one is gone.
Jack at the moment would bring the best package.

If Alvin was head coach, this would most definitely be true. But he's not; and last year I didn't see much accountability going on.

In the words of Alvin Williams after every question by Eric Smith:
"exactly".
