Lack of experience in Raptors 15yr history

Coaches:

Brendan Malone- 1st/only head coaching job in the NBA
Darrelle Walker-1st/only head coaching job in the NBA
Butch Carter- 1st/only head coaching job in the NBA
Lenny Wlikens- Only experienced coach in team history
Kevin O'neil- 1st/only head coaching job in the NBA
Sam Mitchell- 1st/only head coaching job in the NBA
Jay Triano- 1st/only head coaching job in the NBA


GM's:

Isiah Thomas- 1st time NBA GM
Glen Grunwald- 1st time NBA GM
Rob Babcock- 1st time NBA GM
Bryan Colangelo- 1st experienced GM hired by the team after 11 seasons


First off, can they not get an experienced GM and head coach at the same time?? Secondly, can you imagine if MLSE did this with the Make believes? You know... if you're gonna get one of the better GM's in the league, may as well go all out and get an experienced head coach when the next level is needed to be reached to try and keep your so called franchise player. And if MLSE didn't tie BC's hands because of Mitchell's contract then shame on him for hiring Triano.


Oh, and out of all our above mentioned head coaches, the only one to ever get another HC position in the NBA was Lenny Wilkens. Sad!!

Look at that list. It's pathetic. Like i said can you imagine if the leafs went 15 years with a pathetic list like that. MLSE wouldn't dare. Triano has to be blamed on BC for sure unless his hands were tied after Mitchell's contract remained on the books? Either way BC needs to look at this list and say to MLSE, it's time we get some experienced coach here with some balls. If not we're going nowhere, we've gone cheap for far too long. At this point i don't care who's fault Triano is, it just needs to be fixed. The talent on this team isn't elite, but it isn't the shit we see now either.

MLSE stands for Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment. They're the company that owns the Raptors (we aren't owned by one or two individual owners). Rather they are a corporation. They also own the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto FC (soccer club).

2?

I thought they owned most of those condos going up around the ACC and the Rogers Centre? Plus they got into the condo business years ago, so if they're "building" 2, it isn't their first 2.
