    Joseph has marginal value at best. But if Masai can use him to...

    I remember the good old days when Casey was on the hot seat after the Wizards sweep. Thing is, by the time training camp rolls around, no one seems to remember the playoffs or care anymore. Including...

    Phil Jackson won 11 championships.

    Dwane Casey is 15-24 in the playoffs, frequently losing to lower-ranked teams. That's not successful. Nor does it really make for a good comparison.

    I don't think this is quite accurate. I think very few Raptors fans expected to beat the Cavs.

    I do think expectations were that we would at least show an ounce of competitiveness with them. That...

    The bracket doesn't matter. The measuring stick isn't the second or third round, it's how we fare against a true contender.

    We filled our biggest hole, at the 4, and we still got trounced. There...

    He's a consensus future star. Unless he pulls a Bargnani he will definitely be a difference maker. Just having that kind of talent under team control for nine years is huge.
