Default Raps with Smitch > Raps with Jay.

The ball movement alone was 390829023809238 times better.

We had a semi offense man.

The more Jay influences the team, the more our offense got stuck.

I understand how everyone is injured, but we shared the damn ball man. I remember open shots!!

Don't tell me NY is a defensive team.

Sad.

+1, its sad to say but i miss smitch. Triano is unfit to be an NBA head coach. He doesnt have the skills neccesary.

You can't say that man. Jay can coach, but this team, was better with Smitch.

I'm sure if Jay could pick his own team, he could be a solid coach, but he can't coach the raps.

We have NO O and NO D.

We had open shots man, open freakin shots!!!!

We didn't have a single one today. Our team is a bunch of ballers, with no plan whatsoever.

Jay Triano is easily the worst head coach in the NBA. He's not fit to hold Sam's hat let alone take over this team. It's been a joke!

Smitch was terrible, atleast Triano figured out how to properly use JO (before the airhead Colangelo traded him)

Raps had offense in this game...?

I thought that Triano's plan was for Jose to bring the ball to 3 point line and shoot right away...

Get Bosh injured???

JO played well when Bosh wasn't there.

Which meant playing JO at the 4.

Not me man. I just said he had lost the players. And that usually happens when the management isn't backing up the coach. Players can smell blood.

JG is a better player, but everything and everyone else is crap.

The fact Jay can't coach doesn't mean he is fit to be a NBA head coach ... I mean, he can coach high school teams or Canada team, but Jay doesn't have the personality to get the best out of NBA players.

We can't even defend a single pick and roll man.

David fucking Lee and Duhon killed us man.

These guys are good, but they are no Tim and Tony!!!!!

THEY KILLED US!!!

Either go under, or over, or switch. Do something.

Good point, i perfectly agree with what you say. I think we fired Sam way too early, and we were 8-9 when we fired him, but you know that's just another sad part of this year.

Triano clearly has no respect from the players. They might like the guy, think he's "nice" or whatever, but they don't fear him.
I believe he's tried to put in a better system, but with no accountability why should the players follow anything he says unless he backs it up by fucking with their PT.
If Bosh were a true leader he'd help JT to get the rest of the team on board.
By all appearances his heart's not in it.

I can accept the fact that there's just not enough talent here.

I'm disgusted with the utter lack of heart, balls and effort.

Fuck this basketball team.

Bosh did everything he could to get the team on board pre-Triano. What's he supposed to do when that isn't enough for the GM, and everything Bosh was preaching before gets tossed out the window?

The season fell apart when sam was fired. We were losing some close games, but at least we were IN those games. Mitchell was the 2007 nba coach of the year (for a reason) i think his firing was unwarranted. That being said, just forget the fact that adding a legitimate low post threat totally alters a teams' dynamic.

I agree with you as far as the heart, balls and effort side of it - but I think we have enough talent to contend for a playoff spot in the east. Maybe not at the moment but when everyone is healthy and alls said and done I believe we will make the playoffs if not this year, then next.

look on the brightside, Joey Graham and Bargnani are improving and acquiring much needed experince. Not as much as Paul johnson and Sherman Hamilton seem to think (if you watch raps tv) but still enough to leave me with a shread of enthusiasm for this franchises future.

At least they're having fun and don't have to look over their shoulders when they make a mistake.

There's something to be said for having a coach who is a disciplinarian.
