    I mean. That kind of is a problem though. The fact that it's so much of a problem that it balances out is bad, not good.

    Hopefully MU is watching this when assessing DCs future.

    A foul is a foul period. Just make the right call. If you are not sure ask for help.

    Exactly. Casey might be able to get us to the playoffs but he isn't gonna help you win when you get there clearly. Now we've got to get a coach that will help us win once we get there.
    sorry but i doubt even popovich could get this roster any further in the playoffs. we're a scrappy, good team, but thats about it. this team needs much more than a new coach.

    Ah. Ya I see the TRoss comparison. What with the 50 point games and all. Not sure you can be a 50(ish) win team and disappear completely though.

    Not really claiming conspiracy but our calls were felt like make-up calls while they really blew a couple of ours that hurt us a lot.

    I wanna know how we're going to defend Pierce if he steps out for the 3 or blow by Amir right to the hole, both Amir/Pat can't guard him at the elbow or off the screen rotation, we need to do something about that but how?

    Do you really think it's as simple as that?? Is Fields even a starter at this point? Maybe you should stick to cheering because I would bet anything that you don't know one hundredth of what Dwane Casey knows about basketball. Dwane has us in these games while working with inexperienced players with less talent than the other team...

    I said this before and i'll say it again. Raps should primarily use Ross as a spot up 3pt shooter. Not a fan of him handling the ball. That's not his game.

    For Saturday's practice, want to see this team work on their handles. It's inexcusable that at this level some players still have trouble with dribbling through traffic. Also, need to have 5 on 6 drills to simulate game conditions and work on crisper passing.

    Canucks fan right there. C'mon dude. DeMar is an amazing player with a lot of room to improve, but if Masai decides to trade him - then so be it. I'm sure there'll be no riots because of DeMar trade
    DeMar does need to improve on the defensive end then he will be a complete player.

    New Coach
    Competent Wing player's
    Back up C
    Lock down wing player
    John Salmons not on the roster
    He's 2 years away from being 2 years away, but his wingspan is already here .

    No way. Popovich would DEFINITELY get us past this team, trust me. We are good enough to beat this team. Pops is able to have his third stringers consistently beat teams in the West each and every year when he decides he wants to give his guys a rest. Getting this team past Brooklyn would be a piece of cake for him.

    He'll become a SUPERSTAR if he improves his 3-point shot and his defense.

    The problem with DC is he seems slow to respond to mismatch issues. If he has so much basketball knowledge he should be able to see it immediately.

    The Spurs are also comprised of scrappy and selfless players. Player Development, practice, coaching staff, etc., all make a difference in the big picture, and there is no question that the Spurs trump the Raptors in every single one of the aforementioned categories.

    In short, I disagree with you. Pop and his coaching staff could probably take this Raptors squad much further whilst making them all much better players than what the Raptors are right now.

    Sure, having a superstar helps as well, but if your coach cannot coach a team and utilize the talent he has properly, then having a superstar means nothing at all. Kyrie Irving and Mike Brown/Cleveland Cavs are an example of this.

    The kid needs to spend time with a sports psychologist because I'm sure his severe struggles at the moment versus the Nets are all in his head. Ross isn't this bad, but so far he's been the biggest disappointment on the Raptors. If you're going to struggle on offense, at least make an effort on defence. Something I've yet to see from Ross during this series.

    Are you fucking blind or something?

    Fields CAN guard Joe Johnson noone else on this team can, So why would a fucking NBA head coach not play something that worked in game 2?

    Casey knows more then me but he's either blind or stupid to not see Fields shutting down Joe Johnson and then playng John fucking salmons out of nowhere!
    He's 2 years away from being 2 years away, but his wingspan is already here .

    Maybe not a piece of cake but in a relatively evenly matched teams Pops would find a way to win. That is what frustrates so many posters is that we are so close. We could win this series....but.....

    Well, if you're suggesting that, I'll take Novak over Ross then.
