          Yay! As soon as we have a team better than Cleveland and the Warriors stop being unbeatable we'll win a championship!

            There's a host of other things he could've said or he could've just stopped at "the goal is a championship", didn't need to guarantee anything.

            I like his mindset. Big improvement from the days of us supposedly not being able to get good American players because we're in Canada, and as such have to go and get as many Europeans as possible. Or the goal simply being to sneak into the playoffs and hope that magic happens.

            It's good to see a GM not satisfied with just making the playoffs or just being good.

              He also told us to fuck Brooklyn, but we ended up getting fucked by Brooklyn

              Words are nice, but status quo has defined much of his tenure so far. I like his enthusiasm too, but time for some real actions.

                  Why U mad, bro? lol.

                  Status Quo used to mean laughingstock of the NBA, and sometimes entire sports world. Status Quo used to mean free agents leave here and diss the city on the way out. Status Quo used to mean, no top tier FA wouldn't even pick up the phone, let alone give us a meeting. Status Quo used to mean trotting out prized FA signing like Hedo, Jarrett Jack and Fred Jones as core pieces. Status Quo used to mean being forced to cheer for a soft-ass team full of pussies and pretending to like that.

                  These days 'Status Quo' means perennial playoff team, trending towards perennial ECF contender and big-time respect around the NBA and sports world, in general.

                  Having said all that, Casey is on the hot-seat for the playoffs and if the Raps flame out and Casey is re-upped then you've got a legitimate beef against Masai. The man has done good work and maintained flexibility to do more.

                  Nobody's gonna win the East unless Lebron gets injured and/or starts to decline. The NBA will make sure of that.

                    This is a great blanket statement that anyone could say.

                      Wow, a lot of negative comments from the peanut gallery, considering our franchise has improved leaps and bounds in every way in 2 and a half years.

                      I guess he should have said "we're just happy to be here"

                          Were contenders as we speak. Every contender has a weak spot though.

                            At least he didn't say we'd win a title before Lebron or in the next 5 years like Dan Gilbert and Prokhorov did.

                              Couple of points:

                              1. Although, I understand how terribly run this franchise was in the past, I don't like comparing our current situation to those years. The bar has been raised since Masai took over. He's done a masterful job so far, but (perhaps it's the impatient fan in me), I want to see more. I want to see management go balls out and turn this club in a serious threat while the iron is still hot. I'm no longer just happy to be here. I want more dammit!

                              2. LeBron is human. Kyrie is overrated, and Love is made of styrofoam. Oh, and Lue will always be that pylon who Iverson stepped over . We shouldn't concede the conference just because LeBron hasn't retired yet.
