Raptors’ Casey: ‘We’ve got to believe’
(DeMar) DeRozan is not going to like it, but there is going to be speculation about (Dwane) Casey’s job security — and not only his. With the Raptors at 4-19 heading into their game Friday against Dallas, everybody’s position with the Raptors is on the line, up to and including Casey and president and general manager Bryan Colangelo.
“He’s (Casey) definitely been on us, but one thing he has been trying to [do is] keep us positive out of everything,” DeRozan said. “It’s easy to do whatever, to throw in the towel and not still be able to fight.”
“We’ve got to be positive,” Casey added. “The NBA is not going to feel sorry for you. If you don’t feel like you can win in the NBA and believe you can win … That’s the most important thing. We’ve got to believe. We’ve got to have a belief system in place that we can win.”
