Sam Mitchell on the fan590
 
Kind of a funny interview from Hoops last night.

I miss this guy.


Decent coach, but most importantly his personality.

Never should have gotten rid of this guy.

He made players accountable. Unlike Jay Triano

Well we have Casey.

i catch him every now and then on the morning show. It's an alright spot.

the one thing that makes me laugh at Mitchell is he tends to say these things that really old people say about young people... as in "when i was young i had to walk through 2 feet of snow to get to school in my barefeet" kind of things. Like when he talks about how players nowadays don't recover from injury enough or aren't tough enough, etc.

Yeah, very Don Cherry like. That part of him i hate. At least he's not pointing to euro's when saying it. lol

Well writers in this town loved writing about him but most of him hated him. Word around the streets is he treated the media like shit

Him and Ron Wilson would get along so well.

Guys that scream and dont have X's and O's to back up their words, wear out very fast.

The team tuned him a year before he left.

Pretty much the opposite side of the coin to Triano.

in his 5th season. he's the coach that has lasted the longest in this franchises history. he did some things right as a rookie coach. he was better than triano by a long shot.

We would have made the playoffs with Mitchell back in 08-09. He had a good chemistry with Bosh and Jose. We were 8-9 and our team wasn't too great. It was just that us as fans had high expectations because we added JO when in fact our team was shit and had no depth.

Wilson is a prick to the media up front but I heard that Mitchell would do cruel things to the media behind the scenes.

Really? It really shows. I mean it's not like he's on the fan nearly every week as the "basketball insider" ,on Hoops here and there or anything, 3yrs after he left here. He must have been a real asshole. lol

To be honest, i've heard nothing but bad things about Wilson and the media, hell even the often curmudgeon Burke is not that well liked.
