    You know what I'm really hoping for? I'm hoping that there was a bit of discord amongst the coaching staff, where like maybe Casey was super jealous of Nurse, so any time Nurse suggested a substitution, or some innovative inbounds play, Casey would just say "Here's a better idea: Let's do what the head coach wants to do. Who's that again? Oh that's right, that's me not you. Okay, ISO time! Give it to Demar and dribble for 23 seconds!"

    Because if that's not what happened every single time, then why did we hire this guy.

    X and O + after timeout plays. These are the things i really want to see them improve next season.

    Casey's after timeout play was trash.

    General system improvement on offence.

    Better rotation choices (ie less just throwing shit at the wall and hoping it sticks).

    Some more creative set plays on inbounds.

    Actual accountability from top to bottom of roster.

    These were issues with Casey, and the last one is one I'd really like to see improved. This is also the toughest to gauge with Nurse. We'll see if he can do it and manage personalities at the same time.

    The Raptors need a doctor, not a nurse.

    Offense wasn't the issue. They couldn't stop Lebron at all in the playoffs.

    Also every single team (barring Warriors) plays ISO at least a quarter of the time...

    One thing that I think bears repeating is that there is no logical reason to conclude the team needs a major makeover. The problem appears to be limited to playoff performance specifically, and the playoffs are different. Maybe Nurse will be a better playoff coach than Casey was, and the rest will stay the same. Remember, it will now be Nurse talking during timeouts and halftime. If it truly is his offensive schemes that have paid off so well over the past few seasons, I don't see why players wouldn't accept his authority. Maybe they don't need a Dad coach anymore and were already secretly wishing Nurse was drawing up the ATO plays. I dunno. But nobody else does either. I like this choice myself.
