This. You are a wise man.

They both need to go - Casey isn't a very good coach and Colangelo has been unable to hire a competent coach.

The Landry Fields signing might actually have been Colangelo's worst move ever. It's just such a terrible signing on a guy coming off a bad year. Why couldn't they have made that offer to Novak who at least has one measurable skillset.

Bryan Colangelo is being paid 5 million a year so we can watch the wonderful fruits of his labour.

I think Colangelo's contract ends next summer? There's an option for another year that I hope won't be picked up.

I can't wait for Colangelo to leave.

If this shit continues, change will be needed and BC has to be the fall guy ... The LF signing may be go down as the worst move made by a Raptor GM ... Take that back ... Vince trade will always be the worst.

I'm not going to protect Casey, but he is playing 11 guys given there really isn't much difference with the lot of them. He is still trying to find out what will work ... quite sad given he had a month of training camp to iron this shit out and that was the big excuse last year.

Gotta say that Casey conference after the game gave me acid in the throat ... kept on saying that Philli went small so he was forced to play small ... shit ... your the guy that's supposed to put your will on the other team ... they come in on a back to back, and the visitors force you to play their game ... SAD ... SAD ... SAD ...
No strategy .. To date he is showing limited x & o capability

I still blame BC for the shit upgrades he made in the off-season ... Landry Fields ... oh ya
Give me Forbes anyday over shitty Fields

I don't care what you do ,but you just can't have 5 pylons on the court at the same time. We need to have at least one of Lowry, DD, Bargs and JV at all times!
Thats why we lost to, Pacers, Nets, and Philly.
One more thing.. against philly JV late in the 3rd gets us back to the game and than Casey benches him for the rest of the night???

No offense to anyone, really, but you all need to fucking chill! The season is only 6 games in. The injury to KL has delayed the transition of fundamental changes on the court with the starting unit, that has 3 new starters. There will be time given to BC/DC to integrate all the pieces, at least till the allstar break.

Reality is, and as much as most of you hate it, if LF does have a medical concern that can be addressed sooner than later than he will be back in the starting 5. As shown last night in the Indy game the team minimally needs JC back on the 2nd unit - IMO it was his absence that hurt the Raps the most, AA as well but not nearly as much. I'll wager for sure that once LF is cleared as healthy the team will go back to the opening day roster and give it a real run.

What was our record the first month in the 06-07 season. Different time and much different division/EC now but still. It's far too early to talk about firing the coach, blow it up, tank and all that bullshit. Seventy six games to go people...........breath!

I think it's too soon to panic .... It's a long season and things will get better
If not, BC, Casey, Bargnani and Jose are basically guaranteed to leave and we'll get a fresh start.

Frankly, not even sure what I'd like better at this point.

Ditto. We're really only a little rotation tightening away from being a decent team, and if we're not, then we'll get some sweeping changes, like moremilk said.

Watching that again just makes me shake my head. No wonder other people around the league think this town is a joke when it comes to basketball.

Casey is BC's bitch, so he won't get fired before BC.

A wild Doc appears..

I'm still of the mindset that LF will be serviceable by season's end. You gotta give this team time to gel with Lowry on the court. The expectations are way too high..

the focus on offence this year as opposed to defence was a mistake. Casey is a defensive coach this team should've continued to do what worked last year.

The fact Colangelo has a job still and Bargnani is still on the team proves there is little to no accountability with this franchise. Really, I don't think our owners give a shit whether we win or lose. It's all about profit at the end of the day and Colangelo makes them profits.

Looking at a team like the Lakers and compare them to Toronto. The Lakers start 1-4 and the organization and fans say "we won't tolerate this losing, it's unacceptable." Toronto starts 1-6 and it's like "ok whatever, there are still positive signs we're playing good."

Losing culture at its finest.
