You need to seek help for your Casey-itis.


Oh come on now, that's over the top. He is clearly concerned for DDR, we all know DDR and Casey were super duper close, it is a perfectly reasonable note.

It was a tongue-and-cheek comment, so chill out.

BTW, Tommy does seem to make everything Casey-related these days. This was another example.

I know he took the firing of Casey really hard.



How do you know how he took it?

Don’t be ridiculous. This is nothing to do with Casey and not sure what the hell you’re trying to prove.
DeMar is clearly not in a good place and losing Casey which he said multiple times, is a father figure to him hurts.

Yes, this is to me beyond basketball but if you want to be a dick and make it about that go ahead. I don’t give a fuck.

If I’m gonna provide the details people gonna jump and say “oh you heard it from someone who knows someone...”

Casey is doing well. He’s renting a house somewhere else and is paid 6.5M?next year for hanging out with his family. Demar can call any time he likes... his father’s health is a whole other level.

Not sure what the status is with DeMar's wife/girlfriend but if they did breakup, the resulting legal 'complications' especially with children could really be taking a toll on him.

They were never married and from what I've seen from her on IG they get along well still. I don't think that breakup for the most part has been contentious.

It was a tongue-in-cheek comment. Settle down and lighten up.

Agreed.  They've been pretty close despite the separation.  They have kids and want to be friends - that's pretty cool.

Possibly beyond basketball or maybe not. My comment was based on the whole situation and how difficult it has been for him.
If A family member is not doing well, on top of everything that happened in the last couple weeks, of course it affects everything.

I truly hope he is OK.


I'm not sure where he's at mentally.  The post is similar to the one in January and are also a song title; I've gone through similar stuff and posted lyrics from NIN so I'm going to say you're right on this, especially when you look at the last 6-7 months;

1) Separated from his 10 year relationship (despite being close it is a loss and a big change);
2) Father extremely ill and in the hospital;
3) Just watched LeBron kicked the Raps around for a 3rd straight year;
4) He played fairly poorly in the Cavs series;
5) Just had his closest ally/coach/father figure fired (esp hard when you consider point 2)
6) Both DD and the Raptors won't be commenting on that post.

I hope that DDR is doing well.
