    one thing cut it out with this fuckin bullshit excuse about no camp.

    i'll tell you why because the 16 god damn teams making the playoffs, their coaches had no camp either. so, don't feed me this bullshit like it's some disadvantage they have over the other 29 teams and that's why they're shit.

    please, just stop... JUST FUCKING STOP!!!
    But most of those coaches have been there and done that. Playoffs is nothing new for them, Dwane casey is in his first season with a roster full of unproven youngsters, give DC a summer and you'll be happy with the outcome next season. I also love the idea of getting a tough Vet who can actually play and contribute(no offense to Big Cat). Elton Brand sounds good

    I disagree.

    Has Bargnani not been benched at times? Has he not been called out at times? Has he not actually played decent defense?

    Has James Johnson not been shown who is boss?

    Has DeMar not been called out?

    Has Ed Davis not been called out?

    Has Amir not seen him minutes cut for dogging it?

    Has Gray not been yanked at times for ineffective play?

    Did the Raptors not go to 14th in Opp PPG and 17th in defensive rating this season compared to 26th and 30th last year with pretty much the same roster?


    Honestly I can't see how anyone could not see the changes in the Raptors on and off the court this year. There is a very fine line with professional athletes regarding how hard they can be pushed before they tune out. The fact the Raptors have 10 games left and are still competing in games and refusing to get blown out (minus a 24-0 run against OKC) shows incredible improvement from recent years past.
    Essentially - Casey has done everything right so far.

    but what about BC's decisions? mistake after mistake every time.

    Got Casey, drafted JV, fielded a team that will land a pick in the 3-7 range, put the Raptors in a position to have around 8 million for free agency next summer, and all done within the last 10 months. Other than that, he's done nothing.

    +1 BC has made some good moves. Shows that he is one of the top GM's in the league

    Huh? How many of the 16 teams making the playoffs have a new coach (incl some assts.), are in a stated rebuild mode and had their first round draft choice not available for the year?

    Can the haters just relax until the offseason, and a few games into next season? No coach would have been able to take this current roster and made them a playoff team in one season... Casey has been doing a great job so far and you can only believe that he will do even better next year with more talented players. SO just please calm down with all these negative mentalities until he and BC can prove themselves this offseason and next season.
