      Carlisle was talking up Casey even before the Raptors hired him. He's not going to change his tune now.
      The story was. After the Mavs won the the championship 2 years ago. Carlisle called Colangelo about the Raps vacant coaching position and recommended Casey.

      So you know Rick Carlisle is a Dwane Casey guy.

        Maybe he wanted him off the staff because he kept pounding the rock in his office all day.
        It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

          I'm pretty sure that's not the case. Dwane Casey was a big part of the Mavs Championship team.

              I would not consider myself a 'basketball mind'. No coaching experience, or high level playing experience.

              That said, EVERY SINGLE GAME - I have a serious issue with decisions made by Coach Casey. Mainly rotations he chooses, and also X's and O's issues ... There's not a doubt in my mind he can get a lot out of a group of guys on the floor, and demand and teach a strong defensive effort.

              Did he plateau as a great lead assistant, with a focus on the defensive end? I think so.
              The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.

                  His defensive schemes were great. As a head coach he has failed.

                    I think you can find maybe 7-8 guys with NBA coaching experience that might squeeze more out of this team than Casey has. But how much more -- we've won 40% of our games. I don't think this team is capable of winning, say, 60% of its games. So maybe you bring in a George Karl or a SVG or a Sloan and whoop-dee-doo we have 12 wins instead of 9. This is still a bad team that would get swept in the first round.

                    I've been saying this from the beginning when everyone said fire Casey. Why? There's no point. Come back to me when you see a roster that *should* contend, then we can talk about coaching.

                    Look at the Knicks or Brooklyn.. those are teams that you expected to be contenders and they're not. When the Raptors get to that level of talent/roster and we're 9-14, then we should talk about getting a new coach.
                    12-11 would be pretty good right now.

                            I think he's a great defensive coach... But then there are moments like in the Charlotte game. Up 16... Jefferson only has like 5 points at the half , cause we've been doubling him on the catch and forcing Charlotte to try and beat us elsewhere. Then we just stop. Not for a play or two to keep him guessing , but for the rest of the game, low and behold he finishes with 20+
