Brad Stevens on Dwane Casey's firing: "It's disappointing from the standpoint of the coaching profession but as far as another coach looking at what he was able to accomplish, I think he's a role model for a lot of coaches when you think about his great players got better, played great. His young players all got better, and really the second unit in Toronto was as good of a team and as fun of a team as there was in all of basketball this year.
