One thing that I think has been missed since the trade is the tenaciousness of our defense. Finally getting the team to buy in to this, leaves me uncertain that he'll be toast at the end of the season. No reason you can't extend a coach for one season, maybe two. At any rate at season's end, I don't think Masai will reveal his decision quickly enough for some of the poster's on this board.

I wouldn't classify myself as "pro-Casey" but this team is playing MUCH better basketball lately and it would be silly to suggest that he didn't have at least a LITTLE something to do with that.

The added depth on our bench has really helped.

You guys give me hope in Raptor fans. At least I'm not the only one who sees things from this perspective.
