Bryan Colangelo hopes changing coaches changes the focus on his team.

"I'm really, really tired and incensed reading about what we lack," the general manager said yesterday. "We've got a lot of things that aren't talked about. We've got a great group of players."

Colangelo said Chris Bosh's big season and possible MVP consideration is not getting the attention it deserves and he said the Raptors will be a much better team when centre Jermaine O'Neal is fully healthy.

"You're not going to have an all-star at every position," Colangelo said. "Teams that do, either have chemistry problems or they're championship contenders and right now, we're building toward that championship status and continuing to evolve as a team.

"It's tough to add things in the middle but if there is a right time, and there's a chance to make some adjustments, we'll do that."

New coach Jay Triano clarified comments about how best to utilize Bosh, after being concerned the star player might be getting burned out in some games.

"Obviously, I'm going to go in having a plan as to how I can maximize having our best players on the floor for the most amount of time, but things change," Triano said. "If I have in my mind, CB's coming out at the eight-minute mark and if he makes five in a row just prior to the eight-minute mark, I'm going to let it go."
