Default Raptors make NBA.com's "Team of the weak"

Quote:
Toronto (0-4): Raptors going through their worst stretch in seven years, held up only by the Cavaliers' implosion in the Eastern Conference. One wonders if a coaching change is in order there as was the case in Indiana, but I was told Sunday that the Raps have no plans to replace Jay Triano, chalking up their 11-game losing streak to the glut of injuries
Link: In wake of Celtics-Lakers clash, these things resonate | NBA.com

So it appears as Jay will be staying. Even though I don't like Jay as a coach I think he's done alright with what little talent we have. I wouldn't chalk it up to injuries or Triano...We just have very little talent on this team and some huge liabilities.

Jay will be staying, at least until the summer. After that all bets are off imo, because next season is a team option for him. Even though i still think that'll be picked up....just have a sinking feeling he'll be here another season for some reason.

Triano needs to do a better job at benching players if they aren't performing. Feeding Bargnani the ball every possession when it wasn't working all game, this will get you nowhere. He needs to give Weems less chances for screw-ups and chucks. Also he needs to incorporate DeRozan more into the system.

And he has to give Wright consistent minutes. The other night our offense was a joke and nothing was working. Yet Wright, who could bring energy at both ends and possibly be a spark in an awful game with no energy didn't play (only 8 minutes).

Up until the recent struggles, Jay's done a commendable job keeping games competitive IMO. And even now, injury woes are undoubtedly playing a role, aside from select dubious lineups and play calls. However, I do believe that it's time for a change come the off-season. This team needs fresh eyes at the helm, and on the court (lottery selection).

Shorten the rotation and punish the players who don't defend?
Or develop youth to compete next season?

Triano is really bad in first, but really good in second
But if hes going to be extended, theres no hope for us

This season is a disaster, I didn't believe it would be this bad, of course the injuries don't help.
