We couldn’t be more excited to have Dwane Casey as our first-ever guest. He has had a remarkable career that has spanned from the University of Kentucky to coaching the Japanese National Team to being a successful NBA coach. He is the all-time winningest coach in Toronto Raptors history. The Raptors enter this season with high hopes as they are coming off of three straight 50 win seasons and last year finished tied for 2nd with the Cleveland Cavaliers just one game behind the Boston Celtics.
In today’s episode, we discuss:
- His outlook on the upcoming season
- Working in the coal mines growing up and the value of hard work
- How being falsely accused of NCAA rule violations shaped his career
- George Karl giving him his start in the NBA
