You have to fire Casey because he is doing such a horrible job of showcasing our players. Going into this season I thought that there was no way the value of our guys like Gay and Lowry could be any lower. Casey has somehow done the impossible and made Gay and Lowry look even worse than last year.
The best way to showcase any of your players is to run them in the pick and roll, something that every single NBA team does a lot of (outside of the Raptors for god knows why). Why we aren't running the pick and roll, or any set plays, is beyond me, and it's the main reason the stock of our players is falling.
He's also stunting the growth of JV and Ross (we don't need to showcase Hansbrough at Center, or anyone besides Derozan at SG). If we fire Casey and promote Nurse there basically won't be any pressure on Nurse to succeed, just to get JV involved and make the team look more like an NBA offense. We could hire a new coach in the offseason when we'll hopefully have a bunch more 1st round picks and a lot less salary on the roster.
I ask my self the same question every night before I go to sleep.

I say if we're still under .500 by the end of November Casey is gone.
The truth is, no body is listening to him. He's a good coach, just that, we don't have players that respect him enough to play the way he wants and to drop their own ego's.
Remember last year's coach of the year in George Karl? After reading several Denver-based articles, he was fired for many reason (some philosophical but Kroenke also questioned his rotations AND the limited minutes to JaVale McGee). Sounds familiar? If this team continues its downward spiral, it's because in part how Casey manages people's minutes and you guessed it, the limited minutes of Jonas. My prediction: he won't last November and Nick Nurse or Bayno will run the team the rest of the year. Those guys are lame duck coaches that will allow Gay and everyone else to just pad their stats, make them more desirable for contending teams while the losing continues. Whoever can do those things will be the interim of this team moving forward.
