I thought the players loved playing for him early on in the season. I guess their players point fingers when the going gets tough. This reflects poorly on the team, not Nate. Especially since they canned McMillan last year.

What?


Why would they let go of Bjorkgren after one season? They made some questionable moves at the deadline as well, what did they expect? They shouldn't have fired Nate McMillan.

He seemed to have been doing really well early in the season. Things go up and down as the season progresses. They don't exactly have a competitive roster they have lots of work to do. Turner is also injured.

This would be like the Raptors firing Nurse after this season, if it were his first year with the team. Obviously a lot of poor circumstances this year, with many teams.

Would be a bad look to can your coach 2 years in a row, especially when the last one just turned Atlanta's season around after getting promoted there.

Would love it if we somehow got him back next year.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

I was told he was the Master mind behind our great team and better than Nurse, you know who you are.

Four games back with seven to play? Not that close.

Two coaches in the row with the same locker room issues. At this point it's the players that's to blame.


And I think we all know Nate McMillan is not a bad coach. It's crazy. Like when the Kings fired Mike Malone because the team started losing when Boogie was injured.

The Raptors are 4 games behind the Pacers with 6 games remaining. You can rest assured that they will not be passing them in the standings.

It would be cool if he came back to the Raptors as an assistant coach...he would be free to leave if another HC position opens up

If we’re talking post-championship, the Raps as a team were excellent all of last season too, Nurse included.

We're in the market for a new assistant this summer so his old job will be available if he wants it.

You do know he's been with the Clippers for one playoffs so far right? I know it feels like longer but :lol:
