    Actiually, I don't know how legit this is. But someone on the main page claimed to be close to the raptors organization and said valanciunis is very cocky and he wasn't being a good teammate after his double double performances in the first couple of games. So if hats true I totally understand how he got the quick hook so much
    Haha, that sounds like Casey.

    "JV is getting too cocky dominating out there getting double doubles. I better bench him or the vets will get jealous."

    Why is it a bad thing that JV was getting confidence from putting up monster games in the playoffs? Why would you punish a player for that? Casey is an idiot.

    Forget this humble crap. The best NBA players are the guys who believe they're the best.

    JR Smith. Kevin Durant.

    The best believe they're the best but aren't cocky. They're good but know there's a long way to go. It's a delicate balance.

    I'm starting to wonder if you're just trolling, because your opinions are equally as ridiculous as the straw-man you've painted of Casey.

    Lots of people on the forums seem to agree with my opinions. It's not trolling just because you disagree.

    In addition to what mcHappy said. Kobe, Shaq, Barkley, Bird, Magic.... The list goes on and on. The best players usually have an edge.

    Jonas is a blue chip prospect. Blatch and Swaggy P were known to be terrible and have lived up to that. Stephen Jackson actually had some pretty good years so I'm not gonna bash him. Jonas could be the most dominant center in the game, and you want to compare him to Blatche and Swaggy P? That's bullshit if I've ever heard it.

    Jonas ain't Kobe or mj, hibert is also cocky as fuck. Jonas shouldn't be getting all cocky after like 2 solid games and one that his team didn't even win.

    I highly doubt ujiri would keep Casey aboard if he thinks he'll be detrimental to JV's development

    You ripped on Casey for an unlikely rumor that his name wasn't even associated with. It just seems like your digging for more reasons to hate him lol

    Dude what are you talking about? Also Hibbert isn't cocky, he's actually said to be very kind hearted and humble. You're blowing this all way out of proportion.

    And actually Jonas has had basically nothing but good things said about his character. I don't know how this discussion continued from a baseless rumour...

    If it was detrimental cockiness as well that goes against everything we've heard about the Raptors locker room with how close they are. Maybe Jonas just drunk txted some players, you know what they say: drunken words are sober thoughts

    As well...and I dont mean to generalize...but they dont teach "cockiness" in the Euro leagues. Team play and deference is pretty important over there so I'd be surprised if this were true of JV so soon in his career.

    He probably said/texted:

    "You guys see what happens when you get me the ball?"


    With that Casey said:

    Thats also true. Europe doesn't have many dominant players like North America does so they focus more on unselfish team play, which is a good thing.

    Dude — that's a ridiculous argument, and you know it. JV is NOT any of those players. If he was even close to those players in terms of talent and skill than you might have point.

    And people seem to forget that JV was turning the ball over 5 and 6 times a game against the Nets those first two games. Trying to feed the ball to the post and JV's handling of the ball was a big reason why our turnovers spiked. He was jawing with the officials, and giving up ticky tack fouls as a result. And his rotations were either wrong or late whenever they doubled JJ. Is that your idea of 'a monster game?'

    love this team as much as you do, but I think you're really overrating JV at this stage of his career.

    The truth is, there's a lot of reasons why the Raptors lost versus the Nets, that have little to do with coaching. You're just so biased you just blame the coach because it's easier than admitting the Nets were a terrible match-up.

    I've heard Hibbert talk. Dude isn't that cocky, he may be confident at times but not cocky.

    Yea really confident. When he scored like 12 points in Indys game 2 win. He was all like I know this could happen. It was just a matter of time, he was just talking in a manner that he was cocky
