          This is ludicrous. Casey is a fine coach. This is clearly just your opinion. I once again make note that things fans get on Casey for are not exclusive to Toronto, or exclusive to bad coaches. It's not like Miami or Boston never srew up an inbounds play. It's not like the Clippers run a well-oiled machine.

          Toronto is coached pretty well. The absolute only thing I was questioning with Casey before were his sub patterns in terms of minutes. He'd get way too attached to lineups for long stretches, and then end up with really weird minute divisions. LIke how many times has Demar, or Jose/Lowry (whoever's playing better that night) been on the bench until there are like 4 minutes left in the half or game...that is downright strange. We'll see now that the trade is done, role definition should be easier with a clear-cut starting PG, and a more reliable wing rotation.

                Only an ignoramus could forget that an IQ score is corrected for age and therefor independent of the variable.

                    He's not bad but he's no Pop. My beef with his coaching is that he's not necessarily an X's and O's guy. I wish he'd call time outs quicker, a la Pop. Substitution pattern in critical moments are a bit dubious and play calling during crunch time can be iffy (i.e.. late-game inbound plays). One huge plus: great motivator. Great coaches in this game motivates - unless of course you're Pop, Thibs and Jackson. In that case, they'll just chew you out with their death stares.

                        If you watched the defense potential in this team, and Casey's want to push the tempo, I certainly think this thread is useless.

                        He has made some really bad/questionable decisions this year, but his philosophy and his defense-first system is perfect for an athletic, young team.

                          This is a two part thread but most people seem to be more interested in the 2nd part and not the first. The trade idea with Utah is not bad but I'd do it for Millsap rather than Jefferson. If Utah agrees to take on all that money, they might want a pick or two added as well.

                          As far as Casey is concerned, I think he's not bad but I don't mind a change. I think he's better suited to be an assistant coach.

                            Agreed. He's instilled a very solid system and is getting his players to execute night in and night out. Every coach has faults, and Casey's so far this season is minute distribution (which is very fixable, especially with these recent roster changes)

                              Well I think what Casey has done with a roster severely lacking in high-end talent is quite impressive. Remember how at the start of the year everyone was praising Dunlap? Well now Charlotte sucks some serious balls. Is that all on Dunlap? of course not.

                              It's so hard as fans, even if you've been watching ball for 20 years, to really tell how well a coach does, because talent means so much more. With the talent Casey has had, he has done quite well. The team has stayed together. They play the right way when they win, as in they put in solid all-around team efforts on both ends of the court. He has kept the team motivated after a 4-19 start!!! Seriously guys, most any team would've mailed it in. It's really hard to tell with Xs and Os when there isn't enough talent, though. Would Pop, or Doc, or younger guys like Brooks and Spoestra be able to run the same systems as well with the talent the Raps have had the last 2 years??? Clearly not. I wouldn't even be able to confidently say the team would've done better...maybe slightly.
