I still stand by my opinion from months ago that although Casey is a great teacher for the defensive aspect of the game, and probably a good assistant coach, he is a horrible head coach in the NBA.

I'm ready for a new coach and GM.

Yeah, but I'm at the point where I cannot defend Casey's rotations and situational subs. He and the assistants need to put Ross out consistently to see what we have in him. We already know what Anderson is and nobody likes it.

Amir Johnson: 19 points on 8-8 shooting and 13 rebounds. Wanna know what was so impressive about those 13 rebounds? 10 of them were rebounds. Holy crap, Amir is awesome.

Or people just don't want to watch the Raptors anymore. After all, the season is over.

Amir is now up to 10-10 shooting and 12 offensive boards. Christ, that is insane.

No it isn't. There's still like 20 games left. Quitting on a team because they're not playoff bound is basically just like being a bandwagoner. Obviously everyone can't always watch every single game or maybe they just choose not to watch every single game because of time commitments. But choosing to stop watching entirely solely or largely because the playoffs aren't in the cards feels wrong as a fan.

Before todays game, Amir was averaging nearly a double double per 36 minutes with a solid 17.7 PER.

I think he is a legit good starting powerforward in the league.

I believe 13 of them would be rebounds.

Oh my bad. My brain has gotten tired from studying.

Meant, they were 10 offensive rebounds. Finished with 12 offensive boards.

Loving the development of Amir this season. I'm quite comfortable moving forward with Amir/JV at the 4/5. Just need to get them better backups.

Lowry was 1 assist short of his 2nd consecutive triple-double.

The starters did good again last night. The 2nd unit just killed us again.

We need to start getting Telfair some more time to see if he can be a long-term solution to our back-up PG. Lowry has been excellent this year but his style wears his body down a lot. We need a good back-up PG that can play extended minutes. Lucas sure as hell isn't the answer.

If only Bargnani could do that on a consistent basis. He has to be one of the more frustrating players to watch in sports altogether, in my opinion.

Unfortuantly he had such succes last year, he screwed himself over by winning way too much. Just think if the Raps had been able to draft Lilliard, by not being able to draft a PG it caused bad move after bad move. I think Lowry is the anti-christ for coaches, Casey seemed to have control of the team last year but that all went out the Window when Lowry hit town. They wouldn't have done the rediculous deal for Fields to screw the Knicks out of Nash. Even if they had just signed Lin look at all the bad deals that could have been eliminated. Now what else can go wrong fast forward to the Draft, with the No.1 pick is the World Champion Oklahoma Thunder with the pick they got from Houston that belonged to the Raptors are on the Clock for the No.1 pick that they won at the lottery.

The Raptors pick is top 3 protected.

But nice try.

Demar is underratedly good in the post. They should run more plays with Gay and DeMar in the post.

but if they do that, when will there be time to run pointless iso plays or give the ball to Anderson for him to chuck it?

Did you even think of what that would mean for Anderson?

In the post, they could kick it out to AA or Lucas. At least then, it would be open look chuck shots.

Nah, Casey will just play him as a super-undersized 2 like he is now.

Except that now Anderson is acting like he's the PG and taking the ball down the court instead of giving it up to Telfair or even Lucas.
