Do I think Smitch was the right coach for THAT Raptors squad? No. Do I think he is a bad coach? Meh. Was he our best coach since Lenny Wilkins? Probably.
He kept the team in line, he got the MOST out of our players... I still think if TJ didn't get injured by Horford, things would of worked out a bit better... But thats looking too far back... And I also think he made Bosh the player he is today to be honest... He made Bosh believe he was the best player on the floor each night, got the most out of Bosh and was amazing for his development... Bosh was mentally tough, he fed off Smitch's coaching style, which is why Bargnani couldn't, leading to his firing... And playing Bargnani at the 3 was probably Colangelo's idea, you know that...
