All I wanted was a team that got somewhere close to 40 wins, remained competitive in the games we did lose and either eeked out the 8th spot or surrendered the 14th pick. That was my lowly definition of success this season. I wanted a team that seemed to be making forward progress.

but guys something is up.

Casey proved last year he knows to ride the hot hand. He knows how to handle rotations. He knows how to motivate Bargnani, and he knows how to coach defense. How do you get a better defensive PG,C and a SG taking a real step forward and still blow games?

I'm not a conspiracy theorist but it appears Casey is coaching to lose and or showcase Calderon, Bargnani and Johnson.

From an outside perspective this looks a lot like showcasing and tanking.
