    Default Casey underrated ?

    Ranking of all NBA coaches :

    20. Dwane Casey (Toronto): Has never been trusted to coach a good team. Lacks the requisite dynamic personality.
    #20 ? OK, the guy can't be ranked top 10 considering he never had a winning season, but #20 seems very low. Thoughts ?

    "Lacks the requisite dynamic personality"? wtf? Is DC so much less a "dynamic personality" than Brooks, Spolestra, Mike Brown, Woodson, Vogel etc.? Seems like a totally BS requisite to me.

    As for trust, well, I think he's earned some trust as Carlisle gave him complete control of a championship teams defence. After that he was given the trust to help properly rebuild a team that has long suffered under bad coaches hired or kept on for bad reasons.
    LET'S GO RAP-TORS!!!!!

    I wouldn't put much merit into a random hoopshype article to decide how good, bad or valued a coach is.

    I skimmed that article and it was generally terrible. The authors logic suggests that coaches with bad records clearly sucked, but coaches with good records that he didn't like also sucked. It read more like some guy's personal opinion based on what they look like on TV than any real measure of coaching skills.

    Read the article and couldn't help myself. I had to leave a comment there...

    "Lazy, poorly written, mean-spirited...sounds like a cocaine induced ramble in some all night binge after the Espy's. I decided to Wikipedia this idiot and low and behold his few little kicks at the can never really amounted to anything so he decided he would be the great arbiter for the game. He's known for having controversial opinions which is double speak for spewing crap that will offend people. Easiest thing in the world to do. It takes zero talent. You just have to indulge the lowest common denominator and somehow live with yourself that your entire life is predicated on injecting toxins in to the world."

    its a stupid writeup but i think the ranking is pretty fair considering his body of work.

    the more the raps fly under the radar the better, imo.

    some terrible rankings in there
    spoelstra at 8 and then says hes underrated.
    hes not a good coach he just has the best team in the nba to work with. the plays he draws up in the final 5 minutes are terrible and the offence is completely reliant on his super stars making plays out of nothing
    if he were our coach we would go nowhere

    Hey if the Raptors do make the playoffs which most NBA pundits (sir Charles the clown) still think its a long shot then he will climb to the top 10.

    +1

    If catching a few teams off guard results in a few extra wins, that could be the difference between missing/making the playoffs.

    All that hate on the internet; all those commenters calling writers idiots. That's more selfrefering than about any writer. That goes even for Rosen, even though he never wrote anything not meant to get a reaction.

    I'd say 20 is pretty high for a guy who has coached two and a half seasons total with a .400 winning percentage.

    The hope here is that in 4-5 years he's in the top 10.

    The issue is less Casey's ranking as it is the uneven application of criteria by the author. Casey's skills are negated by his record with no regard for the pieces he had to work with. Meanwhile he dumps on a couple of coaches with great records and dismisses all of their success as the result of having great players work with.

    I'd rather have a coach and it's team go out there on the floor, and play with a chip on their shoulders and play like they have something to prove, rather than having expectations to be great, and acquiring respect which quite frankly they don't and haven't earned.
