Default The questions Casey MUST answer

Hello losers (me is among you),

The season is over, however I would like to ask admin to submit most popular questions to DC on behalf of Raptors fans.

My question would be,

1. Why JV is usually on the bench and AB is on the floor during 4th quarter;

there are many more questions, but for me it would be interesting to hear the answer to this 1.
I remember when AB scored 2 of 19 and still was on the floor.

It reminds me a junk car that was bought for 1 million and DC with GM try to repair it sacrifying 5 times more.

The list is too long to count. You'll lose your mind trying to understand the insane.

For like the first possession he was in I saw that value, after that it was clearly hurting more than it helped.

Why do you continue to trot out lineups that don't work night after night?

That didn't happen last night.... when he came on with Lucas, Fields, Anderson, they all sucked. Don't just pin it on AB, they all blew that lead. It was gross. And this team losing to a shitty team without it's two best players is disgusting. People say 'but we're winning"... we lose back to back must win games against teams worse than us..... enough said. Disgusting.

Can't agree more. But i guess the team would be ready to go into tank mode, if there was not the little fact that our pick is not our anymore. So we will see a 32-33/50-49 season...

Statistically, our bench is horrendous.

Andrea Bargnani Stats, Bio and Game Logs | NBA.com
http://www.nba.com/playerfile/alan_a....html?nav=page
Landry Fields Stats, Bio and Game Logs | NBA.com
Aaron Gray Stats, Bio and Game Logs | NBA.com
John Lucas III Stats, Bio and Game Logs | NBA.com

The combined average shooting % of our bench "scorers"(AB, Anderson and Lucas) is 39.1%! It's not hard to see why we get killed with a bench lineup. Sure Anderson or Lucas will have good games from time to time, but more often than not they are just terrible.

There's not one player on our bench that would be considered a good 6th or 7th man type player. We don't have a good 3pt specialist, we don't have a good creative PG, there's no scoring threat at all. It's just terrrrrrrrrrrible. We probably have the worst bench in the league. Alan Anderson is our 6th man! BAH

Amen. Yesterday was a team wide lack of effort on defense. Gay, Demar, & JV trotting back to allow easy buckets for Zeller? Brutal. Bargs has become a scapegoat for team-wide terrible defense.

As to why Casey plays Bargs over JV in the fourth? I don't understand why this is such a mystery to people. On offense Casey thinks that Bargs is a scoring threat that causes the other team to dedicate a defender to him. He thinks JV isn't as much of a scoring threat so JV's defender can provide more help defense. On defense he thinks they are both equally inept. Is his reasoning wrong? Maybe.

Why the shitty rotations? Because Casey is trying to learn how to be a head coach and Bryan has constructed a team of guys like AA/JL3/Ross/Fields who are inconsistent so you never know what you'll get. Maybe hire a real head coach next time Bryan.

How freakin dare you call Bargnani a bigger offensive treat than Jonas Valanciunas!?!? JV's FG% is twice better than italian's. Every time JV makes a pump fake his defender buys it. WHY? Because JV is making shots and defenders pay much more attention to him than to Andrea freakin terrible Bargnani.
I may not been a fan of Raptors for long, maybe I didn't earn the right to talk like that about Andrea, there were times when he was able to shoot more than 40% per game... I just can't understand that love some fans, BC have for him.
I BEGGED to take the Boozer deal... I begged!!!

Agreed.

JV actually has decent offence. Sure he has no go to move, but his activity is great and he usually gets a lot of chances at high percentage shots.

It's time to give him huge minutes.

When JV came back from his injury - I thought he was to slow and he should be faster.

But now I've come to realize, he's just an absolute beast - it's OK if he's a bit slow because he's a hulk. He's going to be a big fucking monster in a few years. Vet bigs around the league keep trying to intimidate him because they don't like playing against him. I love Val.

We NEED to include him in the offense as a primary low post option. Maybe when the playoff run is finished we can get him more touches.

The reason we got off to such a big lead yesterday is because we included Amir and Jonas in the offense getting them touches in the high post. Their involvement wasn't reduced to running around setting ball screens.

Then Bargnani came in and we had to change the offense to cater to Barney and it was all downhill from their.

Please don't think all lithuanians are so aggressive and pissed off for no reason, as the guys seem to be in this thread. Most of us understand that JV is still young and still needs to put in a shit load of work before he can be trusted to consistently perform, especially late in the game. In fact I think this team has a lot of potential, this is a rebuilding year, and with Gay as the face of the franchise the raps finally have someone to build around.. There's a lot of talent on this team, I think with some smart work from the office over the summer, this team can be a potential 6-7 seed next year.
