Sam Mitchell Fired By Toronto

First the Oklahoma City Thunder fired PJ Carlesimo after the team started sam-mitchellthe season 1-12 which I can totally understand. Then the Washington Wizards fired Eddie Jordan after they started the season 1-10. I wasn’t OK with that, but if you justify making a coaching change based on wins and losses then I get it. But the Toronto Raptors firing of Sam Mitchell…MAKES NO SENSE!

How do you fire someone after starting the season 8-9? OK so what, they got spanked by Denver the night before by 39pts; does that justify canning the coach? The same coach who was named coach of the year in ’07? The same coach who’s led that team to the playoffs the last 2 years? The same coach that you just gave a 4 year extension to? The same coach who passed Lenny Wilkins for most wins in team history? You fire that guy for starting the season one game under .500?! Bryan Colangelo…are you on drugs sir?
