    This organization can't keep trying to cut the weeds and then assume only the grass will start growing. Asking for a 4th coach in 7 years? All previous coaches released before their contracts expire?

    I don't agree with alot of what Casey has been doing. Games like yesterday where Ed sits while Bargnani plays are ridiculous to watch. But he was brought in to play and hide Bargnani. Not to hold all players accountable, not the 'develop' young guys. To build a winning team with Andrea Bargnani as the center peice of the team. This should have been obvious since the day he was hired.

    It is the Colangelo - Bargnani relationship that is the problem.

    If Casey is released the next coach's objective (and therefore problem) will be the same.

    +1

    If Bargnani is still rocking the Raps uniform come the trade deadline watch out for #fireColangelo

    I agree in theory but that is where ball and player movement comes in to play to open up the lanes. As Pop said, the Raptors were killing them on the glass.

    Also Memphis has one of the best offence in the league and they start just 2 guys who can shoot the three. Raps could have easily went with KL, JC, DD, ED, JV down the stretch.
    Memphis also has Z-Bo whom can shoot well inside the arc, Gasol whom can shoot well from the midrange (can't recall whom their SG is). You don't necessarily have to shoot the 3 to spread the floor.
    And ball movement is predicated on having players to swing to. With JV & Ed on the floor you are not going to swing the ball to them as they are in the post right? And with only JC as the only ball handler on the floor (from your example) in crunch time Memphis would just have to trap him to get the ball out of his hands.

    A lot of it also has to do with the personnel the Raps have. PF that doesn't play in the post and SG that can't stretch the floor.

    Just think that all this harping about Casey's play calling is getting a bit out of hand is all. I'm pretty sure there is a method to what many are perceiving as his madness. I think the 2 pg line up with Andrea (for as long as we're stuck with him), DD and JV should be the line up we close all tight games with until someone else steps their game up.

    Lowry can handle the ball in addition to JC and both can shoot the 3.

    JV routinely takes a reversal at the top of the key/just inside 3pt.

    Ed has added elbow jumper, JV can shoot.

    Tony Allen is their SG who can't shoot a lick outside 3inches (exaggeration, I know).

    Memphis is 5th in ppg and 4th in offensive rating.... only 2 guys who can shoot the 3.
