Complete embarrassment.

Dwayne Casey may win Coach of the Year and also get fired.
Phase 1 is complete. He's coach of the year.

If he does part ways with the Raptors, it won't be because he's a poor coach, but the wrong fit for the team.

I find it strange that Derozan and Lowry both make it into the All-Star games, Derozan gets player of the week repeatedly, but then suddenly they can't grind it out in the playoffs.  They can't take over a game. The dominant wins this season were thanks to the bench completely destroying others teams' benches. The concern with that is that they won't be that good against starters in the league, should they be moved up while Derozan and Lowry are moved out. The team is psychologically broken and perhaps a coaching change is the only thing that can shake that up. For that reason, as much as I'd like to see Nick Nurse become head coach, I don't think that's the right move for them either. I think the players have just stopped hearing them after years of them being too soft on them.
