    I will give you Lowry and Casey's differences. but I have continued to be impressed all season with how tight all of the main players seem to have been with Casey. Demar, Amir, JV, Fields, Gay...They always seem to have Casey's back and seem sincere about it.
    You know, Raptors don't have the player who would push management to fire Casey...

    Isn't that a good thing? (thinking personality-wise...obviously it'd be nice to have a legit franchise talent)

    Leiweke and Colangelo met somewhere other than Toronto almost two weeks ago, and sources say Colangelo was informed that Leiweke would have final say on all basketball decisions until a decision was made. Colangelo presented his plan to the MLSE board on Tuesday last week, and the meeting ran for three hours; it was a pre-planned meeting, however, and included Leiweke.

    So if this is true, contacting Lue would have been Leiweke's final decision.

    I have nothing to base this opinion on other than my own opinion but it seems to me that the Raptors are a f*cking mess.

    Coaches and GM not on the same page.

    Analytics and coaches/GM not on the same.

    Coaches and players not on the same page.

    Players and players not on the same page.



    What a mess.
    Not to be overlooked:

    The players are not on the same page with EACH OTHER.

    The guys don't like Lowry's heroball. They resent Bargs for this paycheque/terrible play. They don't pass to JV when he's hustling and open, Alan Anderson (of all people) often decides "fuck these guys, I'm chuckin it!", Demar hustles and works hard but is also the eye-rolling champion of the Canadian region, and we traded away 2 of the only guys that everyone seemed to like.

    I think the above mentioned things would not have taken place if Casey was not the Coach. As much as BC likes to defend Casey, I think he(Casey) is the problem. His final 34 win record may make him look OK but it is not a proper indication of his Coaching. About half those wins came due to 3 five game win streaks. If anybody's got to go, it's Casey. I'm not saying he's a bad person(in fact he's too nice) or a bad assistant but that he's a bad Head Coach.

    If I'm Lue I'm respectfully telling the Raptors to call me when the other shoe drops--- If they're still employed then.

    Not sure what his role in the Celtics Coaching staff is. I remember him being the Lakers back up PG when Shaq and Kobe played together. He was assigned the task of guarding a red hot A Iverson. He actually did a pretty good job. So since he was a defensive specialist, it's possible he's a defensive Coach but I'm not sure.

    Essentially non-news since I doubt Casey will be around when the season starts next year.

    How are we looking for assistant coaches without a GM? Is Aaron Gray conducting the interviews? #MakesNoSense

    I can see it now...

    It's MLSE. For some reason, to me, it makes perfect sense. Of course, I've been up for 50 hours straight so maybe that's the trick to understanding MLSE: massive sleep deprivation.

    I wonder if Rio Grande Valley head coach has anything to do with Glen Rice, Jr.?

    I would say no but it is a good excuse to put this out there:
    With his reputation in the mud, and his college resume spotty at best, Rice decided not to enter the NBA Draft or transfer to another school, which would have forced him to sit out for a full year. Instead, he signed up for the D-League, but had to wait until the fourth round of the draft to hear his name called, as the #55 pick by the Houston Rockets' affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. With that, he became automatically eligible for the 2013 NBA Draft, as unlikely a goal as that may have appeared at the time.

    When Terrell Harris got hurt, and in-between call-ups to the mothership for the likes of Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas, an opportunity for minutes arose, and Rice took full advantage. His first start of the season came on February 4th, and he responded by scoring 35 points in 40 minutes, knocking down 6-10 3-point attempts, and grabbing 15 rebounds for good measure. Rice hasn't looked back the rest of the way, as he's averaging 18 points, 8 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 31 minutes per game in 25 games as a starter since February, shooting 56% from 2-point range, 43% for 3, and 76% from the free throw line.

    This past Saturday Rio Grande Valley won the D-League championship after sweeping the Santa Cruz Warriors, and Rice was the best player on the court in the series, averaging 29 points, 11.5 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and 3 blocks per game. Fortunes can change quickly in the basketball world, but rarely will you see a player go from racking up DNP-CDs in the D-League to being mentioned as a potential first round NBA Draft pick in the span of just four months.

    Sounds like it could work, especially with the shooters we have around Aaron.

    Wow. Good for the kid. I'm thinking he didn't put his head down, but just kept working ion himself and his game. then when his opportunity came, he grabbed it with both hands.

    Working hard and being ready will get you places in this world.

    Unless yuo are working hard to get into a street gang, or jail, in which case probably both opportunities will come along.
