It was a quick turnaround for the Raptors following their demoralizing loss in D.C. last night, as the team was back in Toronto this morning to clean out their lockers and hold their exit interviews with the local media.

Greivis Vasquez started things off with his usual flair:

And was the first to comment on Paul Pierce, who's play and antics became a running theme throughout the morning:

Kyle Lowry was up next, and with allegations swirling all series whether he was playing hurt, Kyle cleared it up in his own words:

Lowry also gave a statement on where he feels the organization is heading into the offseason:

And his thoughts on Casey as a coach are, not so telling:

Amir Johnson was visibly emotional as he got to the podium, possibly signalling the end of an era in Toronto:

Johnson said all the right things, including that he would play for Coach Casey if he's back next year:

DeMar DeRozan was asked a lot about leadership as well as the impact of social media on his mindset:

The final and most fascinating interview of the day was Coach Casey, who may have coached his last game for the organization. Just as he did last night, Casey wore his Mavericks championship ring to the press conference, as a possible advertisement of what he can bring to another team's staff?

Unintentionally or not, Casey also seemingly trolled all us fans again when speaking about James Johnson:

He also indirectly confirmed what we already knew about this team, which is offensive selfishness plaguing their style:

And in one final chance to plead his case to Masai, Casey had this to say:

Nice try Dwane, but I think even you know you're gone quicker than a thundering steed out of the gate at the Kentucky Derby.
