Default Smitch Trying To Cut Back On Cursing

This should be interesting indeed.

Another reason why Smitch is an idiot. If you're Humphries or Moon, what's going through your mind? I don't know them personally, but I can't imagine how someone can get motivated when they're publicly insulted, especially since the season hasn't started. How about if you're Roko, and you're just starting out, what kind of an impression do you have of your new coach?

Time to change your panties.

Roko probably thinks his coach is a joker

A joker... Yeah, that's what the Raptors need to bring legitimacy to the organization. Don't you find it ironic that this interview was about Smitch trying to "better himself", and he insulted his players in the same breath?

I'll take a professional over a joker, any day.

Yeah, cause it's all shits and giggles behind close doors and on the bench during a game.

I like that we have a coach with a personality and not some robot.

If there is one thing, and only one that I will, give the Smitch credit for is that he is hard on his players but thinks alot of them.

yeah, but what mitchell doesn't seem to understand is that some people are more sensitive than others. Kind of like the spanish photo scandal, to many it was a harmless misunderstanding, but some have taken offense.

Same thing here, some players will not like getting cursed, jokingly or not. I know I wouldn't like my boss to curse me when I make a mistake, regardless of whether he's known as a "joker" or not ... Mitchell obviously believes in the "tough love" philosophy of coaching, which works for some, but can fail miserably when dealing with a sensitive person.

Boo Hoo, they can retire if they have a problem.

Humphries plays like an idiot and I am sure the Smitch smashes his head agaist the wall like we all do when he decides to go all MJ and go 1 on 5.

Ditto with "Joey, Joey I'll pass you, Joey Hey Joey, I'll pass you the ball"

Again I would love to see another coach beside the Smitch here but there is no faulting him for what he said.

He knows that Humps and Moon will take it the right way. Anybody who thinks "tough love" is Sam's monolithic approach is missing an awful lot.
