T.J. Ford has about as good a read on Toronto’s new point guard tandem as anyone. That’s because the former Raptors standout once mentored free agent signee Cory Joseph and forged a close relationship with incumbent starter Kyle Lowry through four years of hard off-season training. “I really like the combination and I think they did a good job and I think it’s a good fit,” Ford told the Toronto Sun Monday over the line from Charlotte where he is helping with a basketball camp.

But given the chance, Lowry stalled. He diminished the club’s hot start as a product of being ahead of the curve coming out of training camp, suggesting that when other teams got up to their speed, the Raptors got caught. He spoke vaguely of “things internally that probably need to be fixed.” And he didn’t exactly bubble over with enthusiasm regarding Casey: “I respect Casey as a man. He’s a hell of a guy,” said Lowry, who played four of his worst games of the season against Washington, on the heels of slump in production that began in earnest in the early days of the 2015. “[But] at the end of the day, like I said, it’s not my choice, not my decision. At the end of the day, yeah, if he’s the coach, I’m a player. I’ve said that a couple of years now. At the end of the day, whoever the coach is, if he’s the coach, then I’ll be back playing for coach Casey.”
