Van Gundy is fucking awesome as a coach and commentator but even he couldnt fix this teams defensive deficiencies. We suck on defence because we have 3 and a half sivs in the starting lineup. Bargs Jose and Turk cant guard their own shadow and Bosh when he lacks energy is just as bad as Bargs.

I know. But i think players are being let off the hook to easily. Anyways, it would help us win more games and make them more entertaining when he gets involved in a fight.

I still can't imagine Triano getting fired..it wouldn't reflect well on the man who hired him..However, if JVG is looking for a challenge and a way to prove himself, this is certainly the job.

If Van Gundy were to be coach then there would need to be another overhaul of at least 6 players because everyone knows there are players that can't guard period
With this roster he could help the D a bit but realize that the offensive production would go down as well

I'd love to see JVG here. I totally agree with his comments too. The raps are just letting teams walk over them. It's pathetic right now.

JVG is the kind of coach this team needs, but I will agree with others in saying that I don't know how far you can go with the guys on our team...

It's not about how far, it's just about taking that next step. Getting out of the 1st round and this team with the right coaching can do that imo. This isn't the teams peak or anything, more improvements need to be made, but the talent has been upgraded from last year at every backup spot, so our added depth alone should get us into the playoffs at the very least. It's a matter of the right coach with the right philosophy and temperment to get this team on the same page.

I agree with giving JVG a chance but it seems like Colangelo has his guy ie Bargnani and now Triano...Can't see him firing Triano as much as I'd love that I dont understand why Toronto continues to try on rookie head coaches as opposed to proven ones??? If Colangelo can fall outof love with Bargs and trade him up we will imporve quickly ...there are some on here that have a greater knowledge and can give me there say but if you compare Bargs with Okur or even Nowitzki..good players but they havent gotten the rings....when it comes down them having to defend a true centre they are eaten alive ..time for our perimeter loving centre to go and get a banger down low ....bring on JVG!

augustine is a great player certainly not a bust. Larry Brown is very strict, if he's not getting minutes, it's because he's probably bumping heads. Honestly LB would be the perfect coach for this team. I would trade our team for the tough minded Bobcats in a second, at least they don't get punked on a regular basis.

OFFENSIVE REBOUNDS. He fights the other team under their basket and grabs THEIR rebounds. That's hustle, pure will, and determination. Bosh is a beast on the offensive glass... that's a fact, not an opinion.
Lol wtf? In a few games maybe, that's not an average game for him - not at all. In fact - and this based off your statement - I'd say he's been that way in maybe 6 or 7 games this year?

I'd give Triano most of the season, any firing right now would disrupt the team flow.

It's also possible we're just not that good.

Let me ask you this... would you rather have Bosh or Reggie Evans on your team?

If a "natural rebounder" is what we really wanted then we really SHOULD have done everything in our power to keep Marion. Because he's twice the rebounder that Reggie will ever be and has about 10X more game.
Of course i'd want bosh, i'd want Howard even more ...
But there are players who play hard because of their nature, and players who are very good or even elite, but are not hustlers. Bowen has a hustler, Garnett was one too. Bosh or howard or shaq are not ...

Bullshit - the only player who can't guard his man is calderon
I don't remember turkoglu being killed on defense last season, and Bargnani was excellent at defending his man all season long. when was the last time you saw Bargnani being abused one on one on D?

So milk - Bosh's defense disappoints you greatly - to the point where it's maybe your greatest disappointment, but you think Bargnani and Turkoglu are good to excellent defenders? You've completely lost me.

I think he is talking about the get the floor after loose balls , block shots, and steal, kind of hustle. Which the Raptors let alone Bosh lack.
