The Raptors coach Nass’s fate is as innocent as vogel’s, and it is the team management who should be dismissed, not them.
Vogel, the 2020 champion coach, was fired by the Lakers in 2022, and Nass, the 2019 champion coach, was fired by the Raptors in 2023.
The society has changed, but the championship coach has become a high-risk profession, while those mediocre coaches have sat firmly in their positions.
The fate of NASS is too similar to that of vogel. vogel was lucky to win the first championship in his life when he met the thick eyebrows at the last peak and James at the last peak. NASS also won the first championship in his life because he met Leonard.
It can be said that they all won the championship by holding the thighs of superstars, but it would be underestimated if they won the championship entirely by rubbing.
Nass led Leonard, turned over the Bucks against the wind, and presented a sensational 1BOX tactic in the face of the Warriors, all of which were the coach’s own abilities, not brought to him by Leonard.
If the Lakers hadn’t kept their championship lineup unchanged because of disorderly trading, vogel might still be able to bring the next championship, and Nass was equally unlucky. The team didn’t keep Leonard and didn’t find a player with the same level as Leonard. This is not his responsibility, but the team’s responsibility.
Just as the Lakers should have dismissed Jenny Bass and Pelica, not vogel, the Raptors should not have dismissed Nass. Although his record is not good, he didn’t give him a suitable player. He can only sigh that a clever woman can’t cook without rice.
In fact, if they didn’t win the championship, they lost with a little regret every time, and the team might be able to keep them instead. Just like Rivers, they have been in the Clippers for many years, but they have been the coach for so many years. The championship has raised the team’s expectations and increased the speed of class.
