Kyle Lowry on decision to dismiss to Casey: “They made a decision — and for me, as a leader in the organization — it’s my job to support the decision that (President) Masai (Ujiri) and GM Bobby (Webster) made.”
Michael Grange: Watching this @Woj feature on ESPN on @Toronto Raptors … “Were their nights when you went to be bed thinking it was either you or Casey? Lowry says (paraphrasing) “I gotta go I gotta go or he has to go”
Kyle LOWRY: [Dwane Casey is] a nice guy. You can’t explain it better than that. He’s genuinely a nice guy, that old-style southern gentleman. He’s just a nice f—ing man — does that make sense? At first, it’s like, “What’s going on?” It takes a while [to] just be like: “That’s it, that’s really him. That’s what he does. He really is nice.” That’s the best way I can explain it. He doesn’t have any animosity, he doesn’t hate anybody, he’s never mad. He [only] gets mad on the court, when he’s working.
Eric Smith: Casey admits he & Lowry were up & down over the yrs but “think alike” now & “likes how he plays”. On the same page pic.twitter.com/oHymhKow3c
