Raptors’ Casey Motivated by Disrespect
They may have been jokes but they cut to a competitor’s heart and if Dwane Casey has his way, mocking of the Raptors will provide a bit more motivation to the players as the NBA regular season nears.
“That’s total disrespect,” Casey said Sunday afternoon. “We’ve got to have a chip on our shoulders, I’ve got a chip on my shoulder. If you don’t, you shouldn’t be in uniform because when people disrespect you like that and say the season went when the mascot went down, what does that say about us? It doesn’t say a lot.
“We should play an entire season with a chip on our shoulder and if you don’t, something is wrong.”
