The Raptors' bench became the envy of the league. Their 59-win campaign during this regular season was the organization's highest win total in its 23-year history. "I'm also grateful to the talented and dedicated coaching staff I work with every day in Toronto", said Casey.

"That's always been a real goal for us, that's the only things that matters". Just as the Mark Price-Brad Daughter-led Cavs of my youth were the unfortunate pincushion of some guy named Michael Jordan and "The Shot", Cleveland is now taking out their 29-year demons on the little red dinosaurs from another country's largest city.
