What made Butch Carter such a good coach?

From Paul Jones' blog.


Quote:
A sign of the times: Former Raptor assistant coach Brian James is scouting for not one or two, but five NBA teams. James reflected fondly on his time in Toronto with Lenny Wilkens and Butch Carter. He also talked about what could have been had the Raptors been able to keep the Vince Carter - Tracy McGrady tandem together with the likes of Alvin Williams.


"People don't believe how good a team we had in Toronto," James said. "We could have had won for five or six or seven years had everyone just stayed together."


So what made Butch Carter such a good coach? According to James the same stuff we have heard all along. Carter was extremely well-prepared, he held his players accountable forcing young players to improve as professionals and treating veterans with the respect they deserve within the limits of team and coach's expectations. But most of all, Butch's players believed in the last five minutes of the game, his players believed in him and that he was going to draw up a play to give them a great chance to win the game.

davis, willis, curry, oakley, brown and christie are the reason he's considered to be such a good coach.

wilkens did better with less when he left. we just got excited with butch because of vince and tmac and making the playoffs.

He was good because he wouldn't take no shit from nobody. and if you tried anything funny, he would sue your ass.

No, but he was interviewed by Charlotte a few years back.

I suspect he burned one too many bridges.

Well the reason he was fired was because he was trying to get Grunwald's job and how many GM's are going to want to hire a head coach who might try and get their job.

Anyone remember Butch putting two guys on the offensive player throwing the ball in on an out-of-bounds.

i remember, but i don't think it's much more than a gimmick to be used every once in a while to surprise the other team. if you do that regularly, the other team will be ready and one guy will always be free. i'd rather just stick a tall guy on the ball and use his length to create problems.

It worked for him though. I believe Carter got a steal and a game winner one of the times.

It was against the pistons, and a nice game.

He was the guy that buried Alvin on the bench, and had half the team ready to revolt in the playoffs. There's only so much bad you can take with the good.
