    Default Are we tanking or is Casey just stupid? Why is JV getting backup minutes?

    You know it's really bad and a serious issue involving the Raptors when even NBA.com has an article on the front page of their site questioning why JV isn't given a chance. That's how bad Casey is fucking this up right now.

    After dropping 18 and 9 tonight with limited playing time, maybe DC will give him more time? (wishful thinking)

    I was just hoping that Casey was given the order by Ujiri to be harsher on JV so he doesn't baby him like BC did with Bargnani

    Casey is not tanking.. he needs to win to save his job. I think he believes that JV getting minutes is a detriment to the win/loss column. It's not all about statistics.. its whether or not he is making a positive impact on both sides of the floor when he's in the game. From my view point I think he's a positive not a negative.. but DC most likely disagrees.

    So I'll take the latter. He's just plain stupid. How can you no see JV as a positive in that game? 18 points, 9 rebounds in 27 minutes. Also, why is Amir not in the game? 6 points, 6 rebounds in 23 minutes. This doesn't even include the defense and energy the both of them play. Why is Fields playing 28 minutes? Fields had one good game and all of a sudden he gets more minutes than two of the major starters? Casey's logic right there or no logic at all for that matter...

    Another good question is why is Augustin still playing as backup point guard? I much rather have Casey try playing Buycks or Stone at this point. They can't be any worse.

    Said this in the game thread, but I'd much rather have Stone as the backup PG. You know you're getting solid D when he's in the game. DJ is way too unpredictable, especially on offense.

    Just want Masai to make a move already, I'm too impatient.

    So we're keep Casey for the year if we're tanking? He might not be a good coach but he's a pretty good tank commander!

    RealGM is doing this right now and let's just say it has yielded hilarious results. Make a meme about Casey's small ball tatics:

    Those of us advocating a rebuild have always held out giving Jonas maximum development time as being one of the most important, if not THE most important, aspect of that rebuild. Regardless of whether you want to be competitive or you want to rebuild, Casey's coaching is working against us.

    Yeah its pretty ridiculous really. Most of the teams nowadays play 'small ball' because there's not a lot of great low post big man anymore.

    So when opposing teams play small ball against us do we really need to match up with them?? even though its not our strength? I dont know about you but our best lineup IMO is when JV is on the floor.

    And i've been saying this here for a while, we need opposing teams to matchup against us not the way around.
