my heart cannot take it. our bench mob is so amazing, and so are our starters but nothing made sense from game one. nothing!!!!!! i was so happy, and now i am so so so sad. i don't know if we can keep things the same.

painful, but true. Look at the great teams that lost the Bulls during the 90s, or those amazing Sacramento Kings teams that kept losing to the Lakers in the early 00s.

It sucks, but really, what would blowing this team up accomplish? And who is available to replace Casey?

Also, it'd be interesting to see what a healthy VanVleet could do. I'm sure the shoulder injury affected his shooting.

This is the second year that this has happened to the Raptors so no matter how good they were in the regular season, no matter how well the bench clicks, no matter the stats someone is going to have to pay for this and sadly I think Casey will be fired by the team.

Shame since I think Casey is one of the better and more underrated coaches in the NBA but someone has to pay for this.

Staying the course is understandable (Five straight playoff berths, three straight seasons of winning at least one playoff series, setting a new franchise record for wins in a season several times over the last handful of years) as is firing Casey and or blowing it up (Swept out of the playoffs three out of the last four seasons).

Whatever they do, it will be hard for me to not somewhat agree with it.

The best part of losing is four is the Raptors will now be forced to hire a real coach.

It's unreal the short leash fans have with Pro sports managers (managers are not coaches).

Casey took them into the playoffs in consecutive years- but at the end of the day, the performance on the court is up to the millionaire pro's that are playing it.

Did Casey miss all those 3 pointers himself???
Was Casey responsible for the spotty defense?

Nah. Casey was fine. The players didn't play well enough, and arguably James was/is unstoppable right now. Same way Michael Jordan was unstoppable. Sometimes you run into teams that for the time being are THAT GOOD.

Something needs to change. I don't know if it's the coach but you can't say they just lost to Lebron. They played terribly. The Pacers went to 7 games. The Raptors couldn't win one and they were blown out twice. That's not all LeBron.

So what changes? I don't know but I won't cry if Casey is gone. Maybe he doesn't deserve the blame but someone does. They should have at the very least won a game. The play was hard to watch.

You can't fire all the players. You only have so many chances with this group and while it may be unfair, someone has to own it. Ujiri sure isn't going to fire himself.

$33M for that Donut who could only muster 5 pts in G4???? 5 measly points!!!!! If u want entertainment like Mike, then keep them all but if want a Championship then u got to get rid of one of these so-called All-Stars.

& LeBronto will be feeling the same way as the Raps when & if he makes it to the finals vs GS.
