(Raptors coach Dwane) Casey was approached by senior basketball adviser Wayne Embry recently on how he would feel about bringing in one of the all-time NBA greats Oscar Robertson to chat with the team.

Casey didn’t have to think too hard about this one. Robertson embodies everything Casey wants his team to be about: Respect for the game, competitiveness and the personification of a good teammate.

While it’s possible, even likely, that not all of the players fully appreciated the opportunity, it was apparent Robertson had the desired impact on many.
