Re: Hollinger - "Raptors 33 wins this year"; Casey/DeRozan respond to "clown"
Despite his questionable derivation of some of his stats, Hollinger usually gives in-depth rational behind his opinions. So Derozan is the one that comes off as a "clown" here. Play better and give the writers a reason to say that the team will be good.
Doesn't this happen every year? Writers pick the Raptors for a low win total, fans/players question it spouting cliches like "things are going to be different, we're motivated now" then by the end of the year the predicition looks bang on.
Casey handles it properly. He knows there is a reason why there is this "lack of respect" and that's because the team has sucked.
Basically, STFU Derozan. Just play better.
