I'd say anybody with some charisma and who commands some respect from the players just for who he is slash has done is better than JT.

Yes, he won't take much bullshit and at this point i think most here would make us a better team on defence (except: highonpsi, he'd bench our best player lol)

Does JVG still have his hair? If he comes to Toronto for a season the rest of it will fall out.

I heard somewhere he has no interest in coming here? Apparently he was considered for Head Coach at one point for like 5 minutes.

We should hire an NFL defensive coach and a boot camp officer on a term basis to whip these pussies into some form of men

You should be asking yourself if Jeff Van Gundy would want this job if the position was offered. 1% chance just because anything can happen.

Honestly... who would want to come here right now anyway?

"Gee, don't mind us! Our players don't give 2 shits and our franchise guy will be gone in 6 months! It's a great city though!!! WEEEEEEEEEEE!"

Byron Scott? Lawrence Frank? Know what these guys have in common?

They won with great talent and LOST with little to no talent.

Much in the same way that we're doing now.

You really believe we have little to no talent? Seriously, you're comparing this roster to NJ? Take a breath.

Oh there's talent here.... but it's SCORING talent.

Who do we have here that can play D better than the Nets? lol....

Bosh? Amir?

Anyone else?

I'll say this right now.... if some other can coach can come in and suddenly turn these guys into great 1-on-1 defenders then he should win COTY.

effort should be considered a talent...some people have it, some dont.
and i honestly believe NJ beats us in that category.

no one in the WORLD can make these guys good 1 on 1 defenders, but team defenders? i think someone can make TEAM defence better, just not triano.

Is there a coach out there who specializes in drawing up a defence for how to stop a team from getting an open look after your PG is beaten on a dribble-drive?

the players just can't play D, no coach will change that
they might improve it a bit but if you have Caldy and Bargs at 2 focal points its difficult

jeff would make this team 10x better, our coaches are as good as invisible and unheard of, fire jay triano. don't care if he's a son of queen elizabeth, he is not a good coach, just cuz he's canadian doesn't give him any privilege to fuck one of the top8 teams in the east.
