I’ve mentioned Casey’s flaws all season, pointed out issues. Just don’t see making the move now without golden replacement.

Ryan Wolstat

The mob says fire Dwane Casey, but I don’t believe that makes sense at the moment for a variety of reasons. Film at 11 (or story up in 15).

Eric Koreen

So, yeah: blame everyone! It's quite freeing.

Eric Koreen

Opening @Zach Lowe graphs is what I mean when I said you don't have to choose between blaming coach or players. grantland.com/the-triangle/w…

Eric Koreen

And yeah yeah, RB isn't the king in the north either. Great morning.

Eric Koreen

"Hey Paul, great series. Two-part question: What do the Hawks do well that makes them so tough, and do you know who Roose Bolton is?

Eric Koreen

Wait — Paul Pierce declared himself the king of the north in the same picture in which he sat on iron throne. That makes no sense.

Underrated quote from Greivis Vasquez last night on if there should be changes: "It’s not for me to judge I’m not a GM, I’m a point guard."

Josh Lewenberg

Point is Dave Joerger (a good coach) used JJ in a similar fashion. He's a good player w/ a specific skill set & (on-court) discipline issues

Josh Lewenberg

Have a look at JJ's game log from bounce-back season in Memphis last year. Minutes/playing time were just as sporadic espn.go.com/nba/player/gam…

Ryan Wolstat

Masai Ujiri availability at 11 Tuesday

Josh Lewenberg

Again, & hopefully for the final time, reports/speculation of a James Johnson/Casey tiff are FALSE. His role was defined when he signed here

Josh Lewenberg

Interesting choice of words but no, JJ is not the most talented player on Toronto's roster. Why would Casey say that? Trade-related bravado?

Back in the 6 but the Raptors call it the 30 now #badjournalismjoke

Paul Jones

Just left the ACC after exit interviews. This says it all ...wow!! #Raptors #rtz. #nextyear #comebacksteonger http://t.co/SOS4yHh6kP

Eric Koreen

Has anybody done the definitive ranking of free airport wifi yet?

Michael Grange

For those asking: Ujiri will do his end-of-season media Tuesday.

Josh Lewenberg

Casey end-of-season presser went just over 29 mins. Lots there. Everyone is held accountable but team is still growing. Expects to be back

Michael Grange

And that's about all from Raptorland. Thanks!

Michael Grange

Casey: I expect to be back ... our staff did a heckuva job working with the players every day. We have nothing to be ashamed of ...

Josh Lewenberg

Do you expect to be back next year? Casey: "No one has told me any different"

Payal Doshi

"This is DeMar's team. He can speak up and be a leader. The next step we have to take is to get to that next level," - coach Casey.

Josh Lewenberg

Casey: "It doesn't take a rocket scientist to move the ball to the weak side"

Michael Grange

Casey to DeMar: 'This is his team, he and Amir have been here the longest .... if he doesn't agree with something, speak up."

Michael Grange

Casey on basketball IQ: 'It doesn't take a rocket scientist to move the ball to the weak side'

Josh Lewenberg

Casey said he felt a sense of complacency take over, team got carried away with offensive identity, let defence slip

Payal Doshi

I felt a sense of complacency. We took our foot off the gas defensively and continued to want to score more," - coach Casey #rtz

Michael Grange

Casey: I felt a sense of complacency set in .... we took our foot off the gas a little bit ... this playoff should be lesson to everyone.

Josh Lewenberg

Casey: "The guy I feel for is James Johnson. He's probably the most talented guy on our roster", said he was the "odd man out"/not enough PT

Michael Grange

Casey: the guy I feel for is James Johnson ... he was the odd man out ...

Michael Grange

Casey: "It was almost impossible to get meaningful minutes for five wing guys ...

Payal Doshi

"Establishing a style of play offensively that will help our defence. A lot of our defensive woes were connected to that," - coach Casey

Michael Grange

Casey: Offensively we need something where a guy touches the ball at least every third time down the floor ... so they can stay engaged.

Josh Lewenberg

Casey said he didn't do a good enough job in establishing an "offensive style"

Michael Grange

Casey: 'I didn't do a good job establishing a style of pay offensively that helps our defense ...

Josh Lewenberg

Casey wore his championship ring (from Dallas) yesterday to try and give his team a lift in Game 4. "I guess it didn't work"

Payal Doshi

"We were emotionally spent," - coach Casey on the outcome of last night's game.

Michael Grange

Casey: "I'm very confident in the body of work we've done here ... as far as player change, that's Masai, but I'll ride with this group'

Josh Lewenberg

Casey says Lowry has to get his weight back down this summer. Said he came into camp in great shape, had trouble getting it back post-injury

Michael Grange

Casey: Kyle and I are family, you have good times and bad times ... there is no animosity or bad feelings in our relationship.

Michael Grange

Casey: I don;t think he got his conditioning back after his injuries ...

Payal Doshi

"We have veterans in the locker room but they have to be vocal," - coach Casey #rtz http://t.co/9aAKPsFyqM

Michael Grange

Casey: What was missing? Our defense ... we shot quicker which compromised our defense, we never struck that balance'

Josh Lewenberg

Casey: "We all should be held accountable but I'm very confident I know what it takes to build a winning team"

Michael Grange

Casey: 'As a coaching staff, our track record got better every year'

Michael Grange

Casey: "There is s level we have play at a the entire year ... we took practice as punishment and it's not'

Michael Grange

Casey: 'We had a false sense of security playing up and down after DeMar went down ... but we could never get the horse back in the barn'

Josh Lewenberg

Casey's at the podium now, wearing his championship ring again (wore it post-game yesterday)

Michael Grange

Casey comes to the podium wearing his championship ring from Dallas. I am not sure I have seen him wear it before.

Of course, there's little benefit to public self-criticism.

Eric Koreen

Of course, that's how most post-mortems go. But not a lot of honest self-assessment happening.

What quotes coming out of Raps post-mortem amount to: Everybody arguing for themselves.

Michael Grange

DeMar: Losing this playoff series ... helped me mature to be that leader going into next year.

Josh Lewenberg

Fourth Paul Pierce question - what do you think of what he posted on his Instagram last night? "I don't care"

Josh Lewenberg

Somewhere the "do you guys need a player LIKE Paul Pierce" question has morphed into "do you need Paul Pierce". Jeeze.

Michael Grange

DeMar: 'expectations grow once you're winning , everyone gets behind you.... you forget about the tough times that got you here'

Josh Lewenberg

10-minute press conference and DeRozan has already been asked about Paul Pierce 3 times

Michael Grange

DeMar: 'No matter how many games we win, we can't be satisfied, we have to keep pushing ... that's the lesson I've learned.'

Payal Doshi

"We settled alot," - case and point from DeMar.

Michael Grange

DeMar: 'I don't think just because we went out the way we did ... just small adjustments is all we need'

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan: "Just because we went out the way we did, it's definitely tough, but just small adjustments is what we need"

Eric Smith

"Minor stuff" is needed, according to DeRozan.

Payal Doshi

"Last year we had the chip on our shoulder of not knowing. You don't think about the tough times once they hit," - DeMar #rtz

Eric Smith

DeRozan Says last year the team had a chip. This year the hot start may have skewed stuff

Michael Grange

DeMar: 'You can't just be comfortable being in the playoffs ... you need to use the season to be the best once the playoffs start'

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan: "The "It" is going to be confusing for me for a while. I don't know."

Eric Smith

Man, the lame sarcasm is rampant on Twitter today.

Payal Doshi

"It was tough knowing the reality of it and knowing it's over. Some guys may not be back and it's tough," - DeRozan http://t.co/8KUZJkdeON

DeRozan says casey is a great coach. Feels he / the raptors are close. DD says its like a Rubik's cube; finding right combo

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan: "It was like karma was catching up with us, like we did something wrong a few months ago & karma came back to bite us in the ass"

Michael Grange

DeMar: 'It was tough to get out of the slump we got in and get our rhythm back ... it was like Karma caught up with us.'

Michael Grange

DeMar: 'Case is getting a lot of flack, Case is a great coach .... it's like a Rubiks Cube .... I'm pretty sure we'll figure it all out.'

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan: "I know Case is getting a lot of flack. Case is a great coach"

Eric Smith

"We're not far away at all." -- DeRozan. Adds it's a piece or two that's needed; maybe a vet piece or two. #RTZ #Raptors

Michael Grange

DeMar: 'We need a couple of things, not a lot, a couple of veterans ... some help to get over this hump that keeps blocking us.'

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan: "We definitely don't need a lot", says they could use a couple good vets.

Michael Grange

Would you hope to have another year playing for Dwane? Amir: "I'll play for him"
