    First, I admire your level of cynicism about Casey and the media. To value the opinions of people like you and me over theirs......

    Second, if you truly ascribe to the wisdom of the masses, from a...

    Nope. All I see are happy players who like each other, an improving head coach, a kick-ass record, and no indication that this team is remotely like last year's team.

    I think the view from my...

    Haha, in all honesty, this kinda strikes true. Both PHX fans wanting Bruno, and TOR fans saying "NO F'ING WAY!"

    I'd prefer not to trade Caboclo either, but I can admit it's mainly because he's a...

    I want things to improve. I just don't need to nitpick where there's no big problem.

    Oh, FFS. Everyone knows winning now doesn't mean winning in the playoffs. Platitudes much?

    You admit that it's a different team, that's a start. It's really not largely the same offense, because...

    Except it's not really helping you figure out anything, is it? You still can't predict what will happen, and everything is a risk. Toronto could just as easily beat GSW for the championship, given...

    Idiots is a strong word. I don't know much about Broussard other than he talks out of his ass on occasion, citing sources that don't exist, and isn't really that strong a writer, for a sports...

    Beat me to it, yes, they ARE idiots!

    And I don't consider media to be in the same league, in terms of access to info and knowledge of/experience with the game, as GMs and coaching staffs.

    Agreed 100% on Casey. Takes waaaay too much heat, gets not nearly enough credit, but there are areas for improvement.

    On SMEs in general, also agreed there's a bell curve for them, for sure. But I...

    You're doing it exactly right, for a fan with limited access to all the information required to make an informed decision. If you were a coach or a GM and you were using the same basis for decisions,...

    And yet... I don't see the numbers. Are you sure you're not just assuming this is the case? I'm sure you can find some numbers to support your case, you seem to be pretty good at that.

    Well, then, in the absence of any data to the contrary, I'll ride it out with my rose-coloured glasses and believe that significantly different circumstances may very well result in a different...

    Did you read my post?

    I explicitly said that it's fine to discuss your ideas, good and bad, but the tone of these discussions is that Casey is an idiot who needs to do what this forum suggests is...

    I asked you to define failure and success. This team is playing winning basketball on a regular-enough basis to have the 5th best record in the league, trailing the Cavs for 1st in the East. They've...

    Not sure what you're getting at. Creative out of the box thinking can bring a new perspective to a problem? Great.

    I'm not sure whose "same old thinking" you're referring to that needs to change....

    Can you please define "failure" and "success" for me?

    This team is not a failure right now, it's a resounding success. It's not the same team as last year -- not the same roster, not the same...

    No, the alternative is riding with the successful ideas that have led the team to the success it's seeing now.

    Fans aren't ever inclined to stand pat, and are within rights to change opinion...

    Why does DD need to make others better in order for him to be worth a place in the "core" of this team going forward? He's doing everything that most people want from an alpha dog on an NBA team,...

    You realize that teams who haven't made the playoffs the past two years call BS on that concept, right? This is the most overused, cliched platitude ever by armchair GMs.
