Wright told Triano to play the younger players

Quote:
"Not being 100%, not being able to practise and get the reps and other guys doing well are all factors," Wright said. "You can't blame coach for plugging in a guy who is giving him more at the time."

In fact, Wright pretty much told his coach to do just that. When it became apparent that his playing time would be topping out at about eight or nine minutes a night, Wright suggested Triano go with one of the younger guys until he could put his health problems to rest once and for all.

People bashing Wright like they bashed Banks throughout the summer.

I think this guy's comments are responsible for the Raptors resurgence.

Wright's hustle was the difference in the final moments of the game. It's unfair for someone to call him useless/etc. He's been playing well for us over the last few games. This is a long season, let's give him more time to prove whether or not he can be a consistent difference maker and contributer.

I don't like Wright. Ever since that game he told the coach he don't wanna play the guys are doing well just was smelling of pure BS.

I want players who wanna play. I want players that dont' play are totally pissed off they dont' wanna play. I'm glad he isn't being a dick though and he could continue with the Mr. Rogers personality and become best friends with Pops while belli and weems contribute

Well I still like Wright and last night he did basically what I feel we have him for...played some good D, hit a big shot and did the hustle plays. I'd rather see him contribute like last night than be buried on the bench.

bedraggled the system, the coach, the players... now he's masterminding rotations and allotting playing time (and, of course, sharing his divinings with the media).

I'm not much of a Wright fan myself either.
I don't care for this 'telling the coach to play the young guys' business.

...but that loose ball dive yesterday was huge. Game saver if you ask me.

Wright has a bit too much of this "veteran know-it-all" kind of strut for a guy who's only 25 and hasn't accomplished a whole lot. The real leadership in the locker room should tell him to just STFU and play.
