Low Expectations to Motivate Raptors?
“I saw today someone predict we’re going to win 33 games, so, with that lack of respect, that should get us motivated to come in this gym each and every day to bust our tails,” Casey said.
“(The) Hollinger report or whatever it was. That right there tells us how much lack of respect the league has for us and how much we’ve got to continue to work each and every day we walk on the floor.”
Casey said while the low expectations bother him, he thinks they should irk his charges a lot more.
“No question, no doubt. I’m not out there playing defence and rebounding, but it should light a fire. If you’re a competitor it should light a fire if people are going to say you’re going to win 33 games or whatever,” he said.
