Everything LX said rings true to a bell. Yet people still refuse to take off the rose coloured glasses.
I've already acknowledged that defense is not his strong suit.

The thing that YOU refuse to acknowledge is that Jose generally provides much more to the team than defense. He's a good shooter and an excellent passer who gets (and keeps) others involved.

He's a weapon in the Raptors' arsenal... and a very effective one.

The problem is that Casey doesn't seem to know when it's time to change weapons to keep an enemy on his toes and remain unpredictable.
