    The hilighted was not part of Casey's original quote, but added by someone on RR for fun.
    I didn't click on the link, and honestly it didn't look out of line to me.

    Then I retract my previous statement about casey having to work with what I got. If he is giving Demar the the same opportunity to produce inefficiently as a core part of the offense then Fuck him

    it doesn't surprise me either way.

    But it doesn't surprise me that Jwash will attempt to be a huge asshole over it.

    This should have been obvious, however it doesn't surprise me at all that Snooch didn't pick up on that tbh.

    I'd agree with this 100%, except that we had Vasquez who previously led the entire NBA in assists. Coming in, GV was touted as an elite pick & roll PG with the timing and talent to hit the rolling big man, but we didn't seem to utilize that even though we had 2 elite PnR finishers in Amir and JV, with Hansbrough also being very good.
    And he took ISO Lou to an all new level.

    His assist rate was lowest of his career last season.

    to quote casey


    He says he is a top inefficient scorer, and then turns around and says they need to incorporate that into the offense.

    I do not disagree with Casey taking a little undue heat, but that statement was fucking dumb.

    And he does need to coach his players and with them, problem is he has to use a top inefficient scorer in the first place.

    Lol. What? How did you get that out of the interview? Some of you guys are so invested in the "Casey is an idiot" narrative you've not only lost all sense you've seemingly lost your basic reading comprehension abilities....

    Oh no, the coach is going to try and incorporate the players he actually has on his roster into an offense with more ball and player movement!!!!! While trying to utilize their actual abilities!!!! The HORROR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    to quote casey
    he's one of the top inefficient mid-range scorer's in the league. That's his game and it's on us to incorporate that within a system of ball movement and get some continuity

    Actually, Casey agrees with you. This recent Q&A on NBA.com is about as close as you'll ever hear him admit to making a mistake in coaching strategy/tactics....

    (I fixed it up a bit. lol)

    I'm not sure if this roster is better suited for ball movment with two of it's best ball handlers and higher b'ball IQ guys no longer around. Don't you need guys who literally play with their heads up and have vision of the court for ball movement to happen? I actually think our offense will take a considerable step backwards this season. Not that losing the iso heavy ofense is a bad thing, but losing Lou and GV limits what you can do on that end of the floor when you don't have guys that can handle the ball and make plays.

    After the dumpster fie of heavy ISO Casey has said no dramatic changes

    https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&sourc...p-options.html

    He is going to run the same offense with CoJo taking mid-range shots like Demar and Demarre glued to the 3 point line like Patterson. It'll be the same terrible offense but without three point shooting. Dfnse will suck too just not basement level

    and there you have it.

    Offense will remain the same, gotta try to incorporate an inefficient offense into an offense that you are striving to be efficient with.

    Lou was great offensively. With Lou, DD, and Lowry the roster had too many iso guys and not enough defense. I can't speak for Casey, but I think the roster, as it stands now, is more to his liking.

    Q: How do the roster changes help in that regard?
    DC: The guys we added are system-type guys. Lou is one of the top iso players in the league. I wouldn't be very smart if I didn't over-utilize that, and we did. We rightly got criticized for it and sometimes that style of play doesn't translate in the playoffs.
    But I think you got to have a balance, because some systems get bogged down in the playoffs also. That's what we're shooting for this year, to get a balance between having a guy that can break down a defense and get his own shot, as well as ball movement and body movement, which is what all coaches are striving for.

    Q: So DeMar can still be who he is in a system that moves the ball more?
    DC: Right. DeMar is who he is. He's a guy that plays in the low post, can play with the basketball, but he's also a coachable player. He knows that moving the basketball is what's best for the team.
    But too, he's one of the top inefficient mid-range scorer's in the league. That's his game and it's on us to incorporate that within a system of ball movement and get some continuity. But as a coach, you do need the guy, at the end of the clock or in a tough situation where you need a bucket , that can create his own shot.
