Great read from Tim Chisholm. Tim discusses how after been pretty much being fed with a silver spoon since arriving in the NBA, that Casey's arrival has certainly changed the culture of this club (as we've all seen) and one of the player that's still in shock as Tim put it, remains DeMar.
Source - Click hereDuring his first two years with the Toronto Raptors, DeMar DeRozan was basically handed the world on a platter. He was an opening night starter as a 20-year-old rookie, and my midway through his second season he was the teamís go-to scorer and he became a nightly 20 ppg threat. Going into this, his third season, it looked like everything was about to coming together for the athletic swingman.
Then Dwane Casey arrived.
Casey is not the type hand out anything. Casey came in with a mandate to change the culture of a soft, pitiless basketball club, and we went to work immediately rewriting the offense and the defense to his standards and expectations. That has resulted in a bit of a shock for DeRozan.
