Too bad for him. If you don't get off to a good start with a new coach and team, you may really limit your chances.
He must've picked up all the bad habits from Pistons.
Mitchell hasn't heard about the "switch" yet.......it's still "off".
must be yet another coach (see: orlando) who cannot see the true potential of our european cast-offs. when will these NBA coaches learn???? sheesh!
Mitchell has never been afraid to use the media to motivate a player.
I wouldn't put a lot of stock into this, not until Delfino's minutes start getting cut. Sam might just be trying to fire him up.
I would think that just playing the game and his salary would be enough motivation.
On the other hand maybe he is just bored. LOL
Delfino seems to be a very unselfish player. At this point, he should probably get a little more agressive with his own game. Drive more and rebound harder.
Maybe he just doesn't have that "game" that everyone is talking about.
That would be another possible explanation.
All in all, it looks like Joe won't be drafting any Europeans any time soon.
Maybe he is trying to make the players around him better. Could be a personality flaw that he has. Point guard personality and skills in a SG/SF body?
Who said a PG can't be 6'6"? As long as the skills are there.
He can but it would be hard to get time with Ford on your team. Doesn't seem like any of the coaches he has played for see this as a skill set. Maybe he really isn't any good? Just find it hard to believe after watching some of his highlights.
Pretty good point.
Still, I prefer to reject the consensus reality and substitute my own.
Delfino for point!!
P.S. Magic was a pretty good point guard a few inches north of 6'6".
Nice game tonight vs the Cadavers
Pts 18 (FG 6 of 11 and FT 5 of 5)
NBA - Cleveland Cavaliers/Toronto Raptors Box Score Thursday October 25, 2007 - Yahoo! Sports
Sixteen different players scored for the Raptors. You don't see that every day.
Delfino back on top! expect this rollercoaster all season long.
Six players scored for the Cavs. You see that more often.
I bet that those six didn't include Varejao, Pavlovic or Ferry. LOL
