Raptors awkwardly congratulate fired Dwane Casey on Coach of Year nomination

The Toronto Raptors created an awkward scene on social media Wednesday evening shortly after the NBA announced the finalists for its Coach of the Year Award.

Last week, the Raptors relieved Dwane Casey of his duties as the franchise’s head coach after the team was eliminated from this year’s playoffs by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Because of that, it was a bit odd to see the Raptors congratulate Casey on being announced as a finalist for NBA Coach of the Year.

The responses were predictably of shock and dismay.

Casey coached the Raptors for seven seasons. It’s understandable the team is appreciative of his efforts during that time. With that said, this tweet certainly comes across as peculiar.
