Casey says he looks at Indiana as a team that Toronto could look to emulate etc. Similar pieces in a sense...gotta build on that now.-with less rookies and no Bargs and calderon yes Defense should be better, but for itto happen Casey get BC to pull the trigger and get Bargnani out of town!Eric Smith @Eric__Smith 2h
Next year, casey says, it will be all about "Defense First"... says they have enough offence. 3PT shooting must improve.
-True it did (No Bargnani) JV was more experienced Raps won what 30 games holding teams under 90 points?Eric Smith @Eric__Smith 2h
Casey admits the D did slip this year and he wears some of that no doubt. But he feels they did get better over last couple of months

I felt like each of the tweets you guys posted were like punchlines to a joke. Each should have been followed with "ba-dum-dum ching!"
He was insinuating they were going to make the playoffs this year in the off-season.
The season is now done so of course they are exactly where they thought they would be. lol
He gets up and boldly and lies in front of the fans year after year and it's all good.
He thought he had a good core at the start of this year and the year before that.
If you keep on changing the core (the most overused term in Colangelo's tenure) you can always come back and say they just need some gel time, until you make the next roster move and talk about your new core.
This is a joke.
I don't see other Gm's in the league spout this type of nonsense. 7 years in and this is what the fans get rewarded wityh at the end of each season. Double speak starring Bryan Colangelo.
The man singlehandedly responsible for the Raps being in the doldrums for the majority of his tenure. It's a huge dissapointment that this man still has his job.
This team will never be any good under Colangelo's reign.
No accountability whatsoever. Starts from the top and heads all the way down this organization. I would like Casey gone but at least he stood up and took some responsibility for how bad they were this year defensively. He's no better than Colangelo imo but at least he can acknowledge something was wrong, cause you know.....they are in the lottery again.
Colangelo on the other hand has such an inflated opinion of himself and everything he does that nothing is wrong at all. Andrea is still a great talent, and this roster is exceptional, and the core is getting better year after year (even though the core changes year after year), and next year is playoffs for sure because the organic growth will be so great that the team won't even be recognizable next year with how great everyone is playing. LOL
I actually want him back next year, so when they don't make the playoffs (The basketball Gods are frowning upon BC. His day will come soon enough) just to listen to him spin it and blame injuries, coaching or whatever other nonsense reason for him not being able to build a team properly.
Take some accountability for the teams continued failings. You've been the one consistent the whole time. It's on you.
Colangelo, "I will take that clearly on my shoulders...."
There's a first time for everything.
I don't know why everyone seems bewildered at what BC is saying. I'm sure all of you mainly have jobs and thus understand that you have to spin some things you say, especially if something you've been working on didn't go over too well. You don't say "Man that was all on me. I suck. Fire me please."
The pessimist in me worries that the change of scenery they're talking about is just removing the rock from outside the dressing room and replacing it with a shrubbery.Ryan Wolstat: Colangelo says no change with Bargnani but change of scenery has been talked about with agent and might be best for everybody.
Im a huge Stephen A Smith fan hes hilarious but man Ouch lolJosh Lewenberg @JLew1050 13s
"There is not a less relevant team than the Toronto Raptors"- @stephenasmith on with @HayesTSN
"Come hell or high water" was a stupid statement. I LOST respect for Casey when he said that. I don't think ANY player should come before the best interests of the team. Especially someone who's not worthy of it (Bargs). We weren't talking about Lebron James or Kobe struggling to start a season......we were talking about Andrea freaking Bargnani! ***
As long as he's at the helm, I have no faith in this franchise. Seven years and counting. Bullshit.
