Raptors Coach on Anderson: ‘He’s a man’
There may not be a bigger compliment that Dwane Casey can give.
He is a basketball coach who appreciates work ethic above all, a guy who loves players who compete and do what’s asked and when the conversation got around to Alan Anderson after the Raptors’ first win of the season, Casey trotted out a superlative that might mean more than any he could use.
“He’s a man,” Casey said of Anderson, who had 18 points off the bench as the Raptors beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 105-86 before an announced crowd of 16,754 at the Air Canada Centre.
“He played like a man.”
