Btw, Warriors played the Thunder after the Raps game. Warriors beat them by 26 points. Fire Brooks?
And the Hawks, they're just hot right now, look at the team that tehy beat the last month or so. Blazers, Clippers, Bulls, Rockets, Mavs, Wiz, Grizzlies. Should all those teams fire their coach too?? lol.
Roster needs an upgrade. This roster is unsustainable. Whatever good basketball they played in beginning of the season or last season was still under Casey. And if the system is flawed then that means those wins were a mirage and don't mean anything. Winning by playing wrong basketball is still losing.

If casey would just move over to defensive assisstant and nick nurse or tom sterner took over... maybe there would be a change. Casey could focus on defense, maybe realize that he needs to have 2 different defensive schemes; the one that he is using now, and the one he used last year, because they both work depending on the teams we face.
Just put it this way... If we have budenholzer.... Would we be playing this shit?
the team is deep, there shouldnt be nights where they just dont have it
guys have gone into slumps because they dont see the ball in good positions to score
you cant expect anybody to just get it going again when the shots they have to take are always contested
and when 2/5 guys in the starting lineups night is decided within the first few minutes of the game(ross,jv) youre never going to have any consistency
forcing them the ball early to see if they can get theirs, to then freeze them out if they dont make those shots is a terrible way to play the game, and a terrible way to develop young players
half the game this team actually plays looking to avoid double teams with lou isos and derozan in the high post, instead of getting the ball in position where the other team is forced to double, creating open shots for others
teams have them figured out now and trap them on their own, instead of being forced to
The players are slumping....you don't fire a head coach because players are missing shots. Very short sighted! 26-13 says Casey is not incompetent (unless you believe we have championship talent on this roster).
Most people would agree that were probably a starting SF and PF away at the moment. Why not wait until we get these pieces....then see what Casey can do with it? If it doesn't work out....then sure, let him walk or even fire him.

OKC fans have been on the fire Brooks train for the last three seasons, and if you watch OKC games you would understand. Their offense is BAD, and that is with Westbrook, Durant and Ibaka...That is the definition of a team that is succeeding despite it's coach because of their talent.
For example just so I'm not some rambler on a RR forum:
"Thunder can't tie future to Scott Brooks"
Qoute: "Brooks has pounded square pegs into round holes for years, refusing to make the adjustments necessary to win a playoff series" <-- sound familiar?
"Scott Brooks has taken the Thunder as far as he can"
Quote: "The inability to make the right adjustments, the simplicity of the offense, the unwillingness to be flexible with the roster and an over-dependence on veterans have OKC on the precipice of getting booted from the playoffs in an ugly fashion. The talent has developed, and now, the team needs no more motivation." <--- Sound familiar?
Blah Blah Blah
Same excuses different day
It's like Randy Carlyle, he takes this HOFer studded, with future superstars and ridiculous two-way players to boot, team to the Finals, without even TRYING to play a proper system, and ends up winning the entire thing. Trust me, I follow hockey like a dog to a scent, supported the Hockey Analytics movement, and holy crap Carlyle's system was probably the worst system in hockey when he coached the Leafs or the Anaheim Ducks according to analytics, and it's not even close.
