I hope this doesn't happen. I REEEEEEALLY hope this doesn't happen... But wouldn't this fit our tightwad penny pinching beloved owner's pattern of spending as little money as possible? Toronto doesn't want Sam and its pretty well known that he won't make it past this season, plus him and Bernie are tight. Hes talked up Sam Mitchell and how much respect he has for him on a number of occasions. Hes talked him up even though hes never been succesful anywhere that hes coached. At the end of the season Bernie moves upstairs and hires another loser coach that won't cost Bob Johnson much money.
I hope it doesn't happen, but thats my prediction.
