Kyle Lowry said on Sid & Tim earlier that his relationship with Casey is " a work in progress" and illuded to the fact that it was once rocky.
Kyle also said that he is indeed playing on sunday vs GSW he confirmed on Sid&Tim
Twitter - @thekid_it
- play the players with the most talent, not his man crushes on "vets"
- draw up a decent play out of a time out
- draw up a decent play to end the game as opposed to an iso for a guy (dd) whose best skills clearly arent beating his man off the dribble in an iso
- figure out when to use timeouts [he has gotten better here]
- establish a rotation that makes sense as opposed to "hockey shifts' [he has also gotten better here ... although like the above, shouldnt this come naturally to a good coach???]
you know ... stuff like this
I don't think casey know how to coach with a legit center in his team. He almost runs his team into the ground cause he doesn't know when to slow it up and pound the rock down low

Casey's a guy who's got a system and it does work but he needs his own type guys to really pull it off and he's got a real problem with not working to various players' strengths. That's my beef with him. He's not a guy you can trust to really develop players and that's why Bayno was brought in, but at the end of the day it's gametime that where these guys are going to be forged. I'm not even going to bring up the late game coaching which is putrid to be honest.
popovich speaking to the media:
"Sometimes in timeouts I'll say, 'I've got nothing for you. What do you want me to do? We just turned it over six times. Everybody's holding the ball. What else do you want me to do here? Figure it out,' " Popovich said, according to the San Antonio Express-News, not long before the Spurs used 14 3-pointers and a season-high 39 assists to dispatch the Cavs. "And I'll get up and walk away. Because it's true. There's nothing else I can do for them. I can give them some bulls---, and act like I'm a coach or something, but it's on them."
Popovich added that the psychological boost the Spurs get from open lines of communication "engenders a feeling that they can actually be in charge."
"I think competitive character people don't want to be manipulated constantly to do what one individual wants them to do," Popovich said, according to the Express-News. "It's a great feeling when players get together and do things as a group. Whatever can be done to empower those people."
"If they're holding the ball, they're holding the ball," Popovich said. "I certainly didn't tell them to hold the ball. Just like, if they make five in a row, I didn't do that. If they get a great rebound, I didn't do that. It's a players' game and they've got to perform. The better you can get that across, the more they take over and the more smoothly it runs.

The one thing that makes me really hesitate is the dramatic improvement of Rudy in Sacramento. I wonder if someone like a Jonas would have an equal improvement under another coach ...
Is it just me or has Patterson really come down to earth the last few games? Don't see that big spark off the bench that we were so accustomed to seeing after the trade.
I'm hoping he's just banged up a bit.. because then the long rest they just had would do wonders.
I think Casey actually does give his players a lot of responsibility, for which he's often criticized.
I think he's trying to get young players to learn how to read the game of basketball.
George Karl, along with other former top coaches, was just quoted as being a big believer in 'chaos' basketball. As in, smart players will be able to read the situation on the fly, and make more relevant decisions for that singular play.

The triangle offence also works on this philosophy.
