Hey Whitley, do you write for the Orlando paper or are you a true blue Toronto Raptors fan/writer ???? You can't admit your local team, the Magic, is far better than Toronto no matter what the Raptors throw at us.
Wanna write for Toronto ? Move up there !

Whitley, you're the fool. Sam Mitchell is an excellent coach. He's got those two big men in there to keep Dwight from grabbing 40 rebounds a game.

Sam Mitchell is a mediocre coach at best. He's got so much talent in his arsenal and he doesn't know what to do with it. Does he really think that Bargnani and Nesterovic can really keep Dwight off the boards? The Raptors are not a bad team, but they are "led" by a subpar coach. This series will maybe go 5 games. It is scary that Orlando is a better road team than home team. Magic in 5. Sorry Bosh, but flopping and a bad coach will only take you so far.

I was pretty sure I was watching a Italian soccer match with all the flopping going on. The raptors are good. They don't need to resort to this trash. What the needed to do was stop all the crying and play ball. But I'm happy they didn't know that!

Bargnani was a SF in italy.
\They brought him over and he learnt to play PF pretty well for a rookie (plus dealing with language and culture shock).

This year he plays C for the first time in his life, is totally lost and cant play back to the net and instead Smitch decides to give the kid the cold shoulder and not talk to him for 3-4 weeks (becayse thats not his thang) while the season goes to hell.
Then after not playing him, he decides to start him at SF which he hadnt played played in the NBA yet.

You got to give Smitch the Larry Brown 'how to screw a kid up' award. He set the kid up to fail this year then gives him no guidance.

Im not even gonna bother with his PG choice.

I know fans who have written offthe season and hope that a sweep will get rid of Smitch..

Go Magic!!!

Where Dwight Howard averages 20/20 for an entire series happens?
