  • I think so many are mad about his firing not only based on skill but rave. Lets be honest, they always say how the league is like 80 percent but has many white coaches which is an off complaint since were not comaining about it being 80 percent black because its qualification based

  • It’s not Kyle Lowry And deMar DeRozan fault

  • Is she ever gonna let them talk?

  • How Do You Get Fired After Winning Coach Of The Year??????? Scapegoat.......

  • The real reason Dwane Casey got fired on my channel💯💯

  • Raptors made a major mistake! They should of at least waited to see the end result of the NBA finals and watched how other teams did against the Cavs!

  • Masia is an Alien and he needs to go back to planet Nibiru!

  • The raptors needed to fire him!!! Show the players to step up!!!!

  • Cavs or bucks need to scoop him

  • Black people deserve to be, and should be, free of racism

  • The most amazing part of all this is that how serious they are for sports, which has no real value in anyone's life.

  • Raps fan here, this is kinda ridiculous. Casey elected to use their same old defensive strategy that has consistently NOT WORKED against the Cavs (i.e. Lebron + shooters) vs adapting and making adjustments in order to take away shooting options and force LeBron to work. That failure to adjust (Raps fans know this was Casey's major achilles) has cost them soooo many times, its honestly surprising this didn't happen sooner.

  • Rational people: "He coached a couple of guys that are notorious not showing up in the playoffs to the eastern conference finals and lost to my generations best player" *Organization* : "yeah, we should fire him"

  • Hi guys! TRUMP 2020😍😊🇺🇸👏🏼

  • I dont think its a mistake if you couldnt get it done this year and get sweeped you gotta go there fired up cause hes black they wouldnt care if it was a white guy thats espn in 2018

  • Hello, Humans. The jack of all trades, can trade away his soul. The soul has no value. You can't see or touch a soul. Most human value the soul. What good is a soul when it can't fix the many problems of humanity? TERRANCE OUT

  • RJ needs to put some base in his voice.

  • They'll probably roll w/brotha Stackhouse

  • Mistake move by the Raptors. SMH

  • That is what happens when you setup games and agree to predetermine Cavs win. Exposed! Failing NBA.


  • Fuck Kyle Lowry and Demara derozen.

  • Rachel Nipples needs to not talk so much on topics like these. sit down and soak in the greatness honey. Shut the trap

  • 我去,同胞呢,没有喜欢看nba的咩

  • Gretzky is best player

  • I always thought Casey was overrated.

  • Trade DeRozan my god

  • When he benched Demar for that 4th quarter, he sealed his fate.... Fuck Raptors frfr.

  • demar dechokin got casey fired

  • Tracy need to understand new coaching staff can change the mentality of the players. I dont' think Toronto is scared of LeBron, we beat them twice in the reg season. It's the in game coaching adjustments that DC couldn't make.

  • Changing coach won’t solve the problem for the Raptors!

  • The thunder should hire him

  • I'm really annoyed they didn't really let tmac talk

  • Now they're blaming a coach for players choking??? Wow.

  • Dwayne Casey is the worst coach ever

  • 3 straight years of getting swept isn't acceptable for the team with the best record in the conference. Firing the coach is acceptable.

  • Raps..Downward Spiral...! Begins..? Casey...Fired..? No.1 seed...? Coach of the Year..! No more playoffs Tdot...?

  • Richard Jefferson is pretty good at this

  • Why didn’t they let Tmac talk. I don’t wanna hear from Carlton banks.

  • ESPN need to hire RJ ASAP

  • i hate when the coach gets fired when the players are the ones to blame

  • It’s not his fault!

  • raptors need to bring del harris lol or rudy tomjanovich lol

  • Tmac looks super annoyed with Richard Jefferson.

  • Bud would get them at least 2 games against the Cavs with Lebron.

  • Drake came out with more fight than the Toronto Raptors,

  • Casey did clear mistakes in the final series. That being said Toronto should get Sponge Bob as their next head coach.

  • This team will go backwards henceforward.

  • Stackhouse is going to be head coach

  • RJ he only fired Casey, idiot

  • They need to rip up the contracts and keep casey

  • Cavs should hire Dwayne Casey.

  • Pacers took cavs to 7 games. I hope you dumb people realize it!!! And fuck you all

  • Lol @ "CAREFUL considerations...NECESSARY step the franchise MUST take..." - Masai Ujiri

  • Rachel sounds like an idiot here.

  • Richard Jefferson... if you close your eyes I swear I could hear a white man

  • Raptors needs to replace Ibaka and JV with a strong defensive minded center and someone who wont stagnant the offense. Maybe bring Siakam back to the starting line up. Trade Norman Powell and keep VanVleet.

  • Masai did not fire Karl, he had left the Nuggets before then. Jefferson is just blatantly lying.

  • The Raptors were going to get exposed in the playoffs. The proof was in the regular season. It’s clear that DeRozan and Lowry can’t be the guys that you build a CHAMPIONSHIP team around - especially DeFROZEN. How many times does this guy have to disappear in the playoffs? He’s better as a third option honestly and his contract makes him difficult to move unless the raptors are willing to part with some assets (which I don’t know if they have any).

  • Maybe The Jump should let Rachel go. Just let RJ and TMac talk and stop cutting them off and being defensive.

  • RJ keeping it real

  • Raptors should fire their president

  • get rid of the gm . .he is worthless . .and hasnt won anything yet

  • This is a total rebuild. They are finding players to trade their 2 all star.

  • Man that lady is super annoying

  • Someone please make a petition and fire Masai ujiri and get a new president of the raptors

  • Richard "lebrons dick" jefferson

  • Its ironic...this is the most coverage the raptors have had in american media in like forever...and its about firing a coach...

  • I get tired of the matchup game. Obviously you need to make a few tweaks here and there, but on paper, this raptors' team was the better team. Keep deploying the guys that earned you 59 wins in the regular season and let the chips fall where they may. I don't agree with this decision at all. Considering all but Freddy (restricted) is under team control again next year, everyone being one year older, this team should be better than they were this year. I agree that some of coach Casey's moves were a bit puzzling bit he was honestly just trying to put the team's best foot forward. I'm a raptors' fan, always will be, but this irks me. The team plays one identity during the regular season and then reverts back to stale habits come the playoffs. Every damn player should be apologizing to coach Casey. Serge at 23 mil per year. You should be on your knees on this man's doorstep. It's a joke!

  • Rachel Nichols is way too long winded .... let the players talk!!!!!!
