This next NBA season you’ll be seeing a new face on the Detroit Pistons sideline. They hired a new coach, Dwayne Casey, who formerly headed the Toronto Raptors and Minnesota Timberwolves. To land the job, Casey went through some heavy interviewing. “Not a lot of people, and I’m not saying this negatively, but a lot of guys or women who have accomplished what Casey has accomplished probably wouldn’t go through the two extensive interviews that we put him through. I think they just wouldn’t want to do that, and that’s fine,” said a Pistons operative.
A hard-working, competent #15 FCIL, Casey is looking for a successful season with the Pistons after having such a stellar season as Head Coach of the Toronto Raptors—where he was voted Coach of the Year by his NBA peers. Yet, he was fired in Toronto after they lost in the playoffs to LeBron and company! Go figure. “If you look at Casey’s history, hell, he went to Japan and the number of seasons he ended up over there, then came back to the States and grinded it out. He’s obviously a very good coach. He’s great with relationships.”
Yes, choose a Brain Type to “grind it out,” and the #15 would definitely be at the top of your list. Like President Donald Trump, they typically stop at nothing in order achieve their goals. A driven visionary himself, Casey has gone through thick and thin to get where he’s at, and given a decent coaching staff and some talent, he has the inborn potential to do quite well in Detroit, provided he is able to maintain good relationships, particularly with his players (#15s can be field marshals, not always well received by less-than-disciplined players). We hope to see him succeed.
