Smitch did more than juss sabotaging Vince and our chances of keeping him (re: Chris Bosh was a budding star and MoPete was finally getting a chance to show what he can do as an elite roleplayer to alleviate Vince's responsibilities on both ends).

Jalen Rose oughta talk about how he sabotaged the Raptors by only giving enough effort to put up numbers to get traded despite us being on the hook to pay him his undeserved max contract.

Fuck Sam Mitchell and fuck Jalen Rose too. Worst coach and worst contract in Raptors history.

sad to think what he could have been and what this team could have been if things didn't go south with him and the team

Jalen Rose is a fool. Can't believe he gets paid to analyze the game of basketball.

He blames Sam for privately telling Rafer that he should be the leader. Say what you will about Rafer, but he was a much more suitable leader than Vince or Jalen. Vince and Jalen were never leaders, before or after the Raps, so Sam was probably right in his assessment.

Sam said publicly that he looked for the pg to be a leader on the floor. He got completely pissed at Rafer for not operating as such properly. He went on to call on the same from TJ and then Jose. Being a leader and the leader are two different things. I'm going to think Jalen is likely off in his interpretation.

I guess depending on who's point of view you take.

I mean it could be said that Vince wasn't put into a position to succeed because SMitch didn't let him be the player he is and have the ball in his hands like he was accustomed to.

Then Vince's lack of effort on the floor hurts too, but what if SMitch made the system to be more to Vince's liking?? would he have played better?? maybe, maybe not?!?!

no one will ever know.....

I agree with LX.... it's all Bosh's fault!!!

Vince asked to be traded in the summer.

It was already a foregone conclusion he was leaving when Sam was hired.

Jalen is a tool.

Anbd what's Vince's excuse these days then? Same old same old. Vince is resonsible lock stock and barrel for his own problems and not sam mitchell

I think Vince was a product of the Toronto media/fanbase and it's incessant need to coddle and baby a star. You get what you asked for. Add in the groundswell of negative criticism and blame that followed, and the perception that he had to go at all costs, and we as a franchise get what we ask for. I don't blame Vince for getting tired of that... I blame everything else for getting out of hand and not rationally steering him back in line.

Totally unrelated but Does Jalen Rose sound and look a bit like Derrick rose?? Maybe theyre related.

LilRomeo 03-11-2011 10:50 PM

OMG. Jalen Rose. I hate him and the way he speaks.
