To no ones surprise, the Raptors cut ties with Lenny Wilkens today.
All I can say is don't let the door hit you on the way out Lenny!!!
He was good for this team at the beginning, but as things went bad, his presence only made them worse. No imagination in trying to work with all the problems. I hope he is done in terms of coaching. League leader in wins and losses needs to retire...

Where the wild are strong, and the strong are the darkest ones, you're the Darkest One.
That team is going nowhere with Vince Carter as the go-to guy. I made the prediction when he came in that he was his generations Wilkins and my boys thought i was crazy when i was pulling for T'Mac more than him when they were on the same team. He may be Carolina Family but his actions make him seem otherwise
I LOVE WRESTLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Lenny Wilkens can't be dealt ALL the blame, since he had deal with a shitload of injuries. That's not simply an excuse, despite what others say. He also had to deal with the loss of Keon Clark (one of the most underrated guys in the league) in addition to that, so this obviously wasn't going to be in Lenny's favor.
But hey, Toronto's loss is someone else's gain. Here's hoping Lenny makes his way to the Clippers!
You know it won't be long now. May God help us all!
They've become an even more interesting soap opera than usual lately... first off the incident with Rafer Alston and Sam Mitchell, and GM Mike Babcock taking Alston's side: http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Basketball/NBA/Toronto/2005/02/08/924624-ap.
