    Did anyone see Isiah whinning like a little girl after the game? Sounds like he can't stand physicality of the game. He wants to play no-touch basketball... he whines like this he's gonna get beat up like Steve Nash did in playoffs.

    Steve Nash was a warrior though. Most of the current players are babies compared to him.

          So, apparently the NBA is cool with gun gestures. Maybe just as long as they're in anger. Or from a shorter guy. Bring on the throat slashes.

          • TRoss with 16 pts through three on 4/7 from three to keep the Hawks down for us. Magic up 15 with 1q to go.

            • TRoss finally doing something useful for the Raptors.

                  Let's stop revising history here. This incarnation of the Raps got better when Lowry grew up and stopped fighting Casey. And that was due to Masai and Chauncey Billups, and in spite of Casey. . That's all documented and part of Raptor folklore now. In fact, we traded what was thought at the time to be our most talented player (Rudy Gay), who looked worse on the Raps than at any time in his career. Saying that "Casey got them playing well..." is a huge disservice to Masai and Lowry.

                  And more importantly, Lowry still doesn't respect Casey (according to Tom Sterner). He likes him, but clearly doesn't respect him as a coach. That's not some RR poster questioning Casey, it's the best player on the team, which speaks volumes.

                  Well, if Sterner's motivation was to never get another NBA job, then he accomplished that. Otherwise, you have to believe he was just being honest to a fault about what is really going on between those two, despite all the recent success.
                  I'm certainly not revising history...lol. But if you want to base your opinion solely on folklore and beliefs of former coaches honesty than so be it. After the Rudy Gay trade and even through the following season few posters here thought the raps had the foundation necessary to get where they are today. I don't doubt at all that Billups or Masai helped motivate Lowry to become the player he is today, or that any number of other people may have helped him "grow up". Lowry certainly deserves alot of credit, and I'm not doing him a disservice. I'm not stupid, Casey can't make Lowry hit 3's lol. He has to do that himself. Players have to perform, and much of their performance is on them as far as I'm concerned.

                  But what I do know is, and this is fact, not folklore or opinion, that Casey was the head coach through all of this improvement that the team has shown. That must account for something. Does he deserve all the credit? Of course not. But you're the one doing the disservice here, to Casey, by completely ignoring the contributions he has made to help get this team to where it is.

                  And I stress again, I don't think Casey is some amazing coach. He has his limitations for sure. And if Brad Stevens is getting a mediocre roster to overachieve, I was originally pointing out that it wasn't so long ago that our roster was considered to be of a very similar caliber to Boston's (or worse), and yet those teams enjoyed a similar level of success that Boston has achieved the recently.
