seriously though, I never understood why people are so down on casey. He may not be the greatest coach in the league, but it feels like we don't even give him a chance at times. All coaches make mistakes, especially early in their career. You think popovic was flawless in his first few seasons (or now for that matter)?
There's all this talk about players not having playoff experience, how about coaches? They improve from season to season just like players do. Does casey have what it takes to become a great coach one day, that's the proper question to ask.
Also, what is the alternative, do we have a chance of attracting a proven great coach? Can we snatch carlisle or pop? Not likely.
