Dwane Casey gets a ring, head coaching job to follow

Dwane Casey, the former UK guard and the pride of Morganfield, Kentucky, won his first NBA title last night as an assistant under Rick Carlisle. I hope he’s enjoying the celebration in Dallas because he probably won’t be there next week. The man behind the Mavericks’ defense will interview with Toronto later this week and he’s already one of two finalists for the job. Casey has been in hot demand for a while now and that demand is even hotter now that his fingerprints are on the Larry O’Brien trophy. Even better, who wouldn’t want a guy who played under Joe B. Hall and shipped packages… er… worked under Eddie Sutton?

As the great Oscar Combs pointed out on Twitter this morning, Dwane Casey is now an NCAA and NBA Champion. He won a ring with the Cats in ’78.

Another Canada road trip this fall?

    First.
    and don’t forget Casey’s ties at Western Kentucky University as coaching assistant under Clem Haskins in the 80’s.

    Dick Stalker says Dwayne Casey’s job was not to ship packages.

    And that’s James Lee in the background giving me and Cawood some where to eat for dinner recommendations.

    Is there anyone who really believes Dwane Casey was responsible for that package or what was in it? If you do I have some ocean front property in Harrison County that I’ll sell your for $10,000 an acre!

    my last post didn’t make it, I asked if there was anyone who actually believed Dwane Casey was responsible for the contents or the sending of that package? If you do, then I have some ocean front property in Harrison County that I’ll sell to you for $10,000 an acre!

    Pathetic comment, punk. Casey sued Emery and received a settlement in his favor.
