    this team is much farther away than I thought.

    the roster is not perfect but it should better than this.

    I like Ross but it really sucks a top talent did not come out of last season.

    culture change... wiining program.... whatever
    To be fair the starters executed. The Bench completely wet the bed when they came in we have the most worthless subs in the league BC has his work cut out for him getting some guys beside Ross and fields that can provide something.

    Again (and I know it was a really short stint), but why did Pietrus get run tonight?

    Not suggesting it had a huge impact on the game. Just saying...wtf?

    It's more just that they never seem to execute cleanly out of timeouts. Ever.

    But also, yes, this is somewhat business as usual for the Raps at this point, isn't it?

    Raptors lineup early in the 2nd killed this team. Amir, Pietrus, AA, Ross and Lucas. That's where Charlotte made their run.

    WTF was that all about? what the hell is Dwane Casey thinking?

    Well but this is exactly what you don't need to have, I mean raptors get to those situations where the foul isn't clear. It's just need to be fixed.

    It's just hard to tell with insanely inconsistent players. I don't think JL or AA scored at all during that time and missed every single 3. If they actual performed even remotely close to their career 3 pt makes in this game, we would have won.

    I think overall it was like 5/22 3 point attempts made? SO many wasted possessions. Yeesh.

    Sorry, but Casey is not an NBA head coach. With no expectations, a brutal roster, and taking a the worst defensive team to average last year, he got a lot of well deserved respect. Unfortunately with raised expectations, a better roster, and leading an average defensive team back to the bottom third, he is getting a lot of well deserved criticism.

    The 4th worst ppg, 3rd worst OffRtg, 1st worst fg% lights up what is suppose to be a defense first squad for 107 points?
    40 ft attempts?

    Jesus tonight.

    3 time outs in crucial situations, 3 turnovers. And you know I am sure players are partly to blame but look at the play they ran on that last one, check the spacing and where guys were going. WHAT THE FUCK!?!?! Clearly it was to go to Amir and back to Lowry for a 3 but they are trying to inbound a basketball in to a key hole with the passes due to shitty spacing as a result of a shitty play.

    I have zero confidence in Casey as a head coach moving forward. None. The roster has improved yet the team is just 2 games ahead of last year's pace where they were knowingly and admittedly awful. Casey continues to coach to his beliefs/systems/plays rather than maximizing the talent on the roster.


    F*ck I'm pissed.... end of rant.... thanks for reading.

    Me too but he actually sucked really hard tonight. No way he deserved any burn based on his play.

    Question is, do you think an established coach comes to this situation? I don't know if another assistant could cut it if a change is made in the summer.

    Raptors haven't had an established coach since Lenny Wilkens. And Lenny imo was the successful coach in this team's history.

    Think about it, Raps head coaches since Lenny was let go:

    O'neill - rookie
    Mitchell - rookie
    Triano - rookie
    Casey - 1 year experience

    Brutal.

    Matt and Leo piss me right off too.

    "since going 4-19 to start, Raps are 22-22 (now 22-23). No question they are a .500 team and in the east that gets you in to the playoffs."



    Ummmm, a few things:

    1) Raps are now under .500 since 4-19 start because they lost for the 2nd time against the WORST team in the league.
    2) .500 doesn't get you in to the playoffs in the east. .500 gets you tied for 8th with MIL who have won the season series with you.
    3) Losing 2 games to the Bobcats (the worst team in the league) this season and barely beating them at home does not look like .500 ball to me.
    4) a 9-25 road record does not scream .500 to me (8-11road record since 4-19overall/1-14road start).


    I am so sick of listening to the hype and spin by blow hards like Matt and Leo. You really shouldn't get too hyped after a win and too down after a loss but this loss (and the one to Cleveland and Washington when playoffs were actually probable) are infuriating and show just how low of a ceiling the Raptors have as currently constructed and coached.

    If Casey is replaced no question you bring in an established coach.

    Would an established coach come to this situation? Ye$. Would any established coach come? No so no Jerry Sloan or PJax suggestions. But Adelman did go to Minnesota (and they paid royally to get him).
