    Thibs isn't a great coach. He is slightly above average, but has a great mind for defense. Sam Mitchell did a better job than him with the talent he had.

    Honestly put Casey on either Bucks or TWolves and they step up a tier, those teams are pitifully coached.

    I give Casey a lot of credit for becoming a better coach and adapting; as we have seen, that is a hard thing to do.

    It really is more the combination of Casey + Masai that is the strength of the Raps. Casey handles the day-to-day management of egos and execution of the strategy/vision. Masai steps in to handle the difficult stuff: like holding Kyle and DeMar accountable and the soon-to-be legendary culture reset mandate to Casey.

    Masai has also given Casey the talented depth to be able to plug in new guys to fill roles. The starting SF position was supposed to be a battle between Norm and CJ - but Masai got OG. And in the game 1, when a normally dependable guy lie Jakob massively craps the bed, Casey can plug in Bebe and get exactly what Jakob was supposed to provide, and then some. What other team can go 11 deep in a playoff game and not have that that 9th, 10th or 11th guy mess it up for them? It's unheard of.

    Casey also has some really good assistant coaches working with him.

    A smart man also listens to those good people around him ......

    Change was the goal when the Raptors hired Nick Nurse, an offensive guru from the (then) D-League, in the summer of 2013. Nurse came in for an interview, and on an office whiteboard drew the offense he envisioned: different starting points, reads, passes, options. "The framework of what we are doing now," Nurse says, "was up on that board."

    Dwane Casey, the team's head coach, liked Nurse's ideas. For various reasons, they never made it onto the court for long. Perhaps no one felt enough urgency until Cleveland swept them and Ujiri spoke out.

    I don't think he's a hindrance. Casey's a great asset in many ways. But I think Masai is truly elite at what he does and doesn't get the credit for elevating everybody, including Casey.

    Lance Stephenson vs. Lebron in round 1 is the best thing that could have happened to the EC. Go full asshole Lance, crank it up to an 11:

    We don't have a Ben Simmons on our team do we? Can't fit a square peg into a round hole.
