I loved A_Wills heart as much as anyone, but we need people that can teach our guys how to win...not how to survive loosing.

This has a Toronto Maple Leaf feeling to it. Bring back the aging star to attract fans.

I disagree, I think this is a solid basketball move. Dude's one of the greatest winners to play in a Raptor uniform. It definitely benefits the players to have a coach to talk to that isn't far-removed from what these guys are going through. Mentally, it has to help.

That and I presume he'll be spending a fair bit of time with Roko and Jose, which will pay dividends.

i dont know Alvin personally, but from what i've seen on TV and in games, i'm guessing he's all class... and if what i've read and heard about him is true - him being an amazing human being, and world class gentleman - then this move is perfect for toronto.

he'll be the perfect ex-player coach that this team needs... and hopefully he can instill his hard work and dedication to the younger players.
i'm all for this.

everyone refers to AW as being a gentleman, and classy human being....
from media to word of mouth... its what i've heard about him.
in fact, ive never read anything that has been demeaning about him.
AW is all class IMO.

It's obvious that they dated at one time.

I don't see Calderon benefitting from this as much as Roko. Alvin is 6'5" too, he and Roko have a lot to talk about.

I'm sure Roko and Jose would learn a lot from a chubby chucker.
