I'm back. I no longer worship joe johnson
Are you confusing my desire for a championship caliber coach with thinking this team as currently constructed could win a championship with a different coach? Because I've never said this team is championship caliber or anything even close to it. We need improvements in both players and coach. Our coach's contract is up so it's the perfect time to cut ties and bring in someone better. Again, it is Ujiris job to find a better coach, so don't give me this "the new coach could be worse" crap. Ujiri's job is to make sure he gets someone who will be better, and if he can't do that, then he doesn't deserve to be GM. I don't want a Rick Sund style GM who is fine preserving the status quo because "it's not that bad".
Absolutely NO ONE should be shocked that Casey is going to cost us this series because of his stubborn ways lol. This has been him all season. He will not play Landry, he will not take Terrence out of the starting lineup, he will not start Patterson over Amir and he will not stop playing Salmons or Hayes. It's just as simple as that so we all might as well get over it and take our game seven loss in peace. We can't change it because Casey can't hear us and even if he could probably won't listen to us so we might as well just let the chips fall where they may.
"We had to put the ball in Rudy’s hands. He had it going,” Casey said. “DeMar struggled. I think he was 2-for-15 in the first half. Rudy was the only one that really had something rolling with a rhythm. It was one of those nights. If it was DeMar rolling we would have milked him. But tonight it was Rudy and did a great job of carrying us, getting us into overtime
Rudy shot 11-37......................
It was the first quarter and getting outrebounded for the whole game are what cost them the game. Terrible terrible matador defense. Plus Amir played like Javale McGee in the early sequence (chose to tip in a TRoss lob instead of dunking it like he usually does, wasn't alert on the play where he didn't anticipate lowry's pass, poor post defense on KG and Blatche).
I would argue more that Casey is urging our bigs to crash the boards less for the sake of his defense...at the expense of our biggest advantage. We should be crashing them hard and forcing them to play Plumlee and Garnett to counter this....because the Teletovic and Blatche line up has been doing some damage lately.
Casey playing players against their strengths once again...
And McHale for not going to Asik sooner in the series.
Or Kidd for limiting Garnett's minutes so strictly.
Or how about firing Pop for keeping Timmy out on that crucial game 6 play not once but twice last year? Better fire that guy, he must be crazy or an idiot...
Outside of Hibbert none of the others make sense.
What's the point of 'getting the young guys experience', if you're basically going to tell those young guys to go sit in a corner. Even worse, you're going away from what was successful and hurting the whole team.
I mean what kind of moron coach broadcasts to the world that he's got a couple of weak links in starting lineup? And JV is actually one of our biggest strengths. And especially spewing this crap in the playoffs. I've never heard this kind of thing before. It's ridiculous.

Aaaaaand this is why I hate Casey. Completely gutless way to cover his own ass if we lose the series.“I think (Ross) is soaking up some minutes,” Casey said. “Both of (Ross and Valanciunas) are soaking up big minutes. Probably, if they weren’t young guys, they probably wouldn’t be. If it wasn’t our future, our direction, (they) probably wouldn’t be in there with some of the mistakes they are making.
“They are our guys. They got to learn, this is their first playoff. I expect a lot of their mistakes, so we are going to ride with them in those situations.”
Even if what he says is true, there's no reason to air this out publicly (oh wait, of course there is - to manufacture an excuse for yourself).
I mean Christ, way to give your kids a nice boost of confidence before the biggest game of their lives.
DC cost us series period.
DC has to be fired (not retained). There is nothing holding back Masai now.
