MLSE couldn't have waited 1 more day to just let the city focus on Dubas?

There's literally nothing the Raptors could do that would overshadow the Leafs hiring a new GM. If anything they might have done this today to bury the Casey story.

That's a good point , I could care less about the NBA but I didn't want my Overdrive listening experience tonight clouded with any Raptors talk.

It's headlined by hockey dudes, so I think we're safe. Might get a call in from Sam Mitchell during the slow hour.

Casey fired.
I use to throw the odd pumpkin around as kid on halloween. The raptors lost me when Antonio Davis started talking about the metric system.

Seriously does anyone else remember this, totally ridiculous.

Hey I don't follow the Raptors at all, but I know Ujiri is the president and they have some other dude that's actually the GM. Everything that ever happens though it seems like Ujiri is making all the moves (based on all the interviews and press coverage). So what the hell does the GM actually do if Ujiri is the guy who's responsible for all the player acquisitions and coaching decision?

I wonder how many times someone's won coach of the year and been fired in the same year. In any sport.

Word is that Casey had refused to take a family vacation very near to where Kyle Lowry spends his summers.

I don't know that answer but Overdrive had a guy on yesterday that it happened to. I assume very rare??

In Hockey, I believe Ted Nolan won Coach of the Year with the Sabres and got canned back in the 90's.

Aesthetic ("and scientifically accurate") but unappealing. 

I prefer the dino version.  Otherwise, that particular Raptors logo needs to be redone differently, in it's entirety.

I still never understood why the Dinosaur was wearing sneakers.
