Wow I was a pretty hard core Casey supporter but this team is nearly unwatchable for me now.

So much for being a good defense-oriented team with a motion offense.

That had to be one of the most disheartening games I've ever witnessed as a Raptors fan. We're fighting for the playoffs and we lose an important, very winnable game because our coach cant adjust his substitution patterns in the 1st half when his bench is sucking it up, and then in the 4th quarter brings in our worst player after benching him in the 2nd half for absolutely no reason, when our starting C played a very good game and had a big impact especially in the 1st quarter.

Casey bringing Bargnani in over Jonas in crunchtime after Bargnani played one of the worst 6 minutes I've ever seen in my life in the 1st half is just mindblowing.

If BC, Bargnani, and Casey arent gone come next year, I honestly may be done watching, and rooting for this team. We've been put through enough as a fanbase. They dont deserve our viewership and money.

Agree except for the BC firing part. I think he has put together a talented, young, athletic roster that has alot of upside. Casey is not the coach for this team however, could be one of my most hated entities in franchise history.

I loved this guy last year but holy fuck he's pissing me off.
This is the problem. I for one didnt like Casey last year because I saw these very problems last year (except sub AA/JL for Butler) but most people including BC loved him last year. Letting go and admitting you were wrong about a guy clouds people's judgement immensely.

In fact, I think if there are any people left on this forum that still like Casey, it's only because they liked him last year and have a hard time letting go. BC seems to hate admitting he was wrong more than any other GM in the league, Bargnani is proof of that.

Casey says defense first yet we still suck at it, and he knows nothing about offense. Hes a good assistant coach, nothing more

How do u keep Colangelo and allow him to hire a 3rd coach and 4th during his tenure,after firing a former coach of the year with after being one game below. 500 and took your club to your only two playoff appearances? I can't see how u keep him,regardless of the good moves. Need a new leadership installed

he made this team a respectable defensive team that competed every night last season. this season has been a joke imo and he's awful at developping young talent imo.

dont think so, i think the coach would probably quit before that happens, or the coach would probably have to ask to do it or something

Have you enjoyed the past 4 years of having lotto ball instead of playoff ball? In deciding the fate of BC, why the hell would management base their decision off of one trade instead of his entire tenure? Your vision is short sited and you have the tunnel vision of 95% of this fanbase and their 'what have you done for me lately' attitude instead of looking at the big picture.

We've made the playoffs 2/7 years BC has been here. Why would we extend a failure?

Oh thats right, because he made a trade in an attempt to save his own ass. Imagine if that exact scenario happened the first time and we got Nash in the offseason where we'd be(ie in a much much worse spot). This is the same idiot GM who signed a scrub for 3 years 21 million just to cockblock NY from getting his cash cow who, again, would have killed any chance we had of improving this roster in the upcoming years.

BC is a horrible GM.

Yeah I have a hard time believing Casey would be up for any kind of demotion, especially after all the trouble he went through trying to "change the culture".

Which really doesn't look all that different from the Triano era lately.

I actually liked Traino aside from his defense. He developed our players very nicely at the time, wasn't an idiot with decision making, subs and rotations. If we hired Casey to be his assistant we would have been much better off.

I'm starting to get on this bandwagon. I do think the Raptors need to clean house after this season.
