    Hell the balls, rims, shot clocks, and hot dog warmers know it by now, too.

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    Great read.

    The over-reliance on late game ISOs is obvious to anyone with a pulse. So what are Casey's assistant coaches doing?

    Damning.

    Casey would have been gone long ago if Kyle wasn't carrying team on a routine basis.

    Wonder if Phil would have gotten canned if he didn't have Michael carrying the Bulls, or Kobe/Shaq carrying the Lakers? Triangle is all the guy knows and never adjusts from it. Yet somehow, someway he managed to be recognized as the greatest basketball coach for the duration of his coaching career and often got the better of Pop. It's like talent really does trump all.

    Seems like Phil's greatest strength was managing egos. Getting guys to buy in for the greater good.

    And maybe that's where Casey's strength lies to. *shrug*

    Basically, though even the Zen Master couldn't keep Shaq and Kobe together.

    I'd take Pop or Carlisle over Phil. Give those guys MJ, Pippen, Kobe, and Shaq and they also win fistfuls of rings, without a doubt.

    Absolutely, as would any number of coaches, Casey included. Don't need to adjust when everyone is adjusting to you.

    Toronto's DRTG is actually okay in clutch games (5 pts or less in final 5 minutes) at #9, it's their #22 ranked ORTG that's killing them, leading to a 16-21 record in clutch games (http://stats.nba.com/teams/clutch-ad..._RATING&dir=-1).

    FWIW if they were even at their average W/L% from the past three years (.614) in clutch games, they'd be 23-14 in those 37 games instead of 16-21 and those extra 7 wins would put them #1 in the east right now.

    Phil is starting to look Homer Simpsonish. His twitter doesn't seem 'zen like' 'mysterious' 'deep or spiritual' it seems to be 5th grade reading level and lucky to be employed. Feuding with employees and refusing to be on the same coast as the team was absurd.

    Triangle wasn't Phils. Was Winters. Believe he had him in LA too. Requires having 2 of the best players in the world on one team to pull it off. Luckily for Phil had that in both cities. He's probably be able to win with the Warriors too.
