Raptors fire Dwane Casey, leaves with classy goodbye letter

Dear Toronto,

Thank you.

Thank you to basketball fans across this city and the country of Canada who supported the Raptors and welcomed my family with open arms during our seven years here. Thank you to all the fans who cheered us on at the Air Canada Centre while we built this program into a playoff contender, packed Jurassic Park even in the cold and rain, watched the games from home and offered their undying support as we traveled this road to relevancy together.

Thank you for teaching our all-American family the Canadian way. That being polite and considerate to one another is always the best way. That diversity is something to be embraced and celebrated. That taking the time to learn about each other's cultures is the surest way to find common ground and understanding. Thank you for making our children feel safe, valued, and comfortable in their own skin. We cannot express how important it has been to build the foundations of who our children are as human beings in a country that shows through its words, actions and laws that all people deserve basic human rights, and a chance to reach their goals through education and hard work.


Very classy way for Casey to depart Toronto and no doubt will help go a long way to ensuring he lands on his feet somewhere.

Raptors could have at least waited to see what Lebron was doing to make this move.

Who they get better be good....very good.

And yes, this was very classy of Casey, I wish him all the best in finding his next role. Luckily for him, someone has already jumped on the New York grenade.

Milwaukee licking their lips with Casey and Budenholzer on the market.

I'd sack his parents for spelling his name like that.
