Social Media Reacts To Raptors Congratulating Dwane Casey For Being Coach of The Year Finalist After Firing Him (TWEETS)
Less than a week ago, the Toronto Raptors were at a crossroads, having just been swept out of the playoffs by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second consecutive year. They decided to fire head coach Dwane Casey as a result, despite the fact that he was the best coach in franchise history.
On Wednesday the NBA announced the finalist for the coach of the year award, and Casey was among the top three, despite not having a team right now.
The three finalists for NBA Coach of the Year… Dwane Casey, Quin Snyder and Brad Stevens!
