Default Casey: I'm not a tryant"

From the Globe and Mail

ďIím not a tyrant, thereís no question,Ē Casey said. ďItís a situation where youíre making sure guys do their jobs and itís all about winning and itís not about self-satisfaction or doing it my way or the highway or anything like that.

ďItís about building a program thatís going to last.Ē

That is Caseyís charge this season and it will be how he is judged. The season began with a 104-96 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday and continues with the teamís home opener on Wednesday against the Indiana Pacers.

Casey vows not to get too frustrated with a relatively young team that needs as much teaching as it does fine-tuning, and the players, through a short training camp and preseason, seem willing to buy in. But it is perhaps Caseyís personality that makes it possible; he is soft-spoken and treats the players with respect.

ďI canít speak highly enough about him,Ē guard Jerryd Bayless said. ďHe brings a certain focus that we didnít have last year. His philosophy on defence and offence is, both things win games.Ē
