    I want Sam Mitchell Back

    Why did we ever fire him??? Cause Colangelo thought Jermaine O'Neal would win us a championship?

    Truth is, he's been the best coach we've had in recent memory. When given some talent, he could actually light a fire under our players' *****, and publicly call out, ridicule, and yell at players for playing like crap.

    What Sam Mitchell would do: Hey Bargnani, don't want to play defense? SIT YO AZZ DOWN ON THE BENCH.

    What Triano and Casey would do: Hey Bargnani, don't want to play defense? I'll leave you in during crunch time so you can launch 3 point bricks and grab zero rebounds! LOL!

    Sam Mitchell is a lot like Casey. A coach that lacks Xs and Os.
    “It’s about winning,” Stoudemire said. “You win, you’re going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won — Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you don’t win, nobody really wants to see you.”

    If my memory served me right, Sam was not an X's and O's coach. His rotation was also not that good either. Yes he is an accountability guy but he is to the extreme sometimes and players with egos will eventually tune him out.

    I am not surprised that until now, nobody had the inclination to hire him as the head coach of their team.

    I say...no to the Smitch.

    If Carlisle is eventually available which I doubt because Cuban is so attached to that guy(obviously with the only ring that he ever got), I think he is the right guy for this team.

    Second is Jeff Van Gundy

    Third is Sloan.

    Pipe dream would be the Zen and Pop.

    None of those coaches would even think of coming here unless we offered them a $50 million 5 year contract.

    Carlise isn't an X and O coach either. He'll have the same stubborn rotations as Casey. Guess who taught Casey that?

    JVG and Sloan aren't coming here.

    Aside from winning a championship, can you enlighten me what is Carlisle as a coach.

    Also please tell me if you are the agent of Sloan or JVG posing as a PSD poster. 5 million a year offered to a coach and you basically just throw it aside and will not listen to the franchise's direction going forward.

    Whatever Casey is doing, that's how Carlise coaches. Obviously, Carlise will make less mistakes but most of Casey's coaching philosophies come from Carlise. The only problem is that Carlise has the players he needs to optimize his coaching philosophies whereas Casey doesn't.

    Sloan and JVG have been offered numerous contracts and have rejected all of them, so of course they'll throw it aside. Mike Brown's contract was 4.5MM/year (5MM after double taxation is probably less) and guess who the two other possible candidates were? JVG doesn't want to uproot his family and Sloan is most likely retired.

    Well said. Yes there are similarities between Carlisle and Casey but I can pinpoint some differences on the way they manage their rotation. Carlisle I think is more on target when calling timeouts. He is more refined when to calm his team down and when to let them play. He I think also chooses to come down hard on a player while bringing players right back up at crucial times. I don't see that from Casey. I also thought of him as more of a defensive minded offensive strategist if that is the word to best describe Carlisle.

    Of course Carlisle has more talent at his disposal but I regard him as more of a multi dimensional kind of coach not a rigid one. I think Casey is more scripted in his coaching. Carlisle as the head coach and Casey as the assistant of my team that I'm rooting for, I will take it any day of the year.

    That being said, I don't think it's the right time yet to fire coach Casey. This debacle is on BC and not the coach.

    With regards to JVG and Sloan, 5 million would be an attractive offer but if your facts are right due to personal reasons then money is of no value for either of them. Although that will not change my point of view that both will definitely change the direction of this team.

    Thread is about Smitch so I think we should stick to that.

    If I'm a gm, I do everything possible to get Sloan to coach this team.

    agreed. Hand him the keys. Let him coach for longer than any player is on our roster. Let the team know HE is the key to success and that they are replaceable. Toronto should have more money to play with on personelle than Utah ever did.

    too bad Sloan's probably done for good.

    this is just over reaction to us being 4 and whatevs alot of losses, and the jays getting gibbins back so now people are going to want mitchell back. i personally don think mitchell was that important to the division title

    you know who the key to that team was jorge garbajosa, we were never able to replace what he brought after he got injured
    Blue Jays 2013 world champs, just watch
