Raptors Do you think Casey gets fired?

At this point if you don't want Casey fired, you're simply in denial. I don't like watching games any more because he gets me so mad. What's worse is the possibility still remains that he won't be fired. My question is whether or not Casey gets fired this before next season. Doesn't matter the circumstance, only if he'll be here at the start of next season.

Him and BC can have a pity party for each other - get rid of them both.

He will be fired, and there will be calls for the new coach to be fired.

I don't get why anyone who had to watch two years of utterly terrible basketball would get so mad when games become watchable. This team is close to possibly tasting lasting success. Maybe they need a new coach or a new GM or both to get there, or maybe not. This is not a situation like the Lakers had with Mike Brown. There are very different assessments in play here.

I get mad simply because we are going no where. I hate to watch my team lose but it's a different story when we could win, but don't because of stupid unnecessary mistakes. The two years before Casey were in fact horrible basketball, but when watching I saw growth and potential. There was always possible room for improvement.

With Casey on the other hand, we are losing because of him and winning despite of him. Continually making the same arrogant mistakes and going no where. Fells like this team is banging their heads on the wall, trying to break it but going no where. With all other coaches I've watched we always had growth. With Casey it's been stagnant.

Unlike most here too, I never liked Casey last year either because I saw these same things last year. Considering I've never called for a coach to get fired before in my lifetime, and considering how heart wrenching he's unnecessarily made most games these past two years, you would understand why he gets me so mad.

I was pissed at him last season too, for getting the team to win too any games.

I don't see the stagnancy. We haven't had any sense of what might be a viable starting lineup for years. Even when Bosh was here there were big holes in the starting lineup. Those holes have effectively been sealed up. If we can get more from a healthier Lowry, and see continued improvement down the line, get anything for Bargnani or just gain clarity by amnestying him, then this team will take a nice jump.

The biggest issue this team has, particularly down the stretch, is that they haven't had a chance to figure each other out. There have been a lot of changes. That's not all on the coach. It is something he needs to try to mitigate, but really time is the only thing that will get it done. The starters are producing. There is still too much of an unreliable mish mash in the rest of the rotation. Improve that situation to any degree, and get a better sense of where guys can be plugged into the rotation and be better at playing off of each other with some familiarity and trust, and a lot gets fixed. That's not a place of stagnancy in my mind. That's a bit of an achievement when you consider that this team was looking at 3 rookies, two point guards wanting starters minutes, an ineffective small forward acquisition expecting to start, a couple of veteran wing players unable to contribute regularly anymore, a fairly good onslaught of injuries overall, the presence of the ever enigmatic Bargnani, and shifting expectations with some meddling from above.

I will not be horribly upset if Casey is replaced by a more experienced and proven coach, unless it is a coach that will obviously scrap the focus on defense. I can pretty much guarantee that a new coach will enrage people enough to start threads like this in fairly short time, even if the team meets expectations. It's a given. It happens everywhere. Fans tend to see the game from a perspective of being a coach without the ability to make decisions. That's going to get frustrating in just about any case, whether there is a change of coaches or not.

Only way for BC to save his job is to bring in a new head coach.

he'll get fired for the same reasons he was fired in minnesota. his rotations and play calling are suspect. he's a motivator, but that only goes so far when you're constantly being out coached by your opponents. he's good for a young team, teaching them the disciplines of the game, but we need a system.

At least he doesn't tie hands for Lakers' best player, he does the opposite, while Raptors "coach" plays worst players in the team like they were the best.

there is no change he will be fired until he gets a chance to prove what he can do with the new team. However, next season he will be on thin ice, another bad start like this season and he's out. Truth is, he had a bad season, just like the entire team. While I like the fact that, for the most part, we're playing hard and there are very few nights we don't show up (which, for those who have a long memory, was fairly common under Jay), he needs to take the reins of the team and get the bad habits under control.

I would like to see a lot more discipline at both ends, our offensive game needs to get a LOT more efficient. We have a lot of talented offensive guys on our roster and we actually get by with taking tons of long 2s every game and we can overpower weaker defenses. But against any good team we struggle heavily because they limit the transition game and we end up taking bad shot after another.

And defensively, we have to be better than this. JV won't be a rookie anymore and we have no weak spots any longer, if Amir is starting at the 4. Anything but a top 12 defense should be considered a failure imo.

on the other hand, if the chance to grab van gundy or some other tier one coach, obviously you go for it. But I don't see it, not until we make the playoffs. Those guys don't come to bad situations.

only way to save his job is to make the playoffs next season, assuming he still has a job after the summer.

I was talking about BC keeping his job beyond this season not beyond 2013-14.
