Raptors congratulate the coach they fired, and Twitter is confused

No the Toronto Raptors Twitter account wasn't hacked

The Toronto Raptors had the best regular season in franchise history and claimed the East's No. 1 seed after winning 59 games.

Following a third consecutive playoff elimination at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Toronto Raptors fired head coach Dwane Casey last week.

Dwane Casey was named NBA Coach of the Year finalist, along with the Celtics Brad Stevens and Jazz's Quin Synder.

"I hope coach Casey gets coach of the year because he deserves it", Ujiri said.

But they seemed to have forgotten they fired Casey only five days earlier.

Keker Reps Indicted Bumble Bee Exec, Insists He's Innocent
Nine current or former Bumble Bee executives, including Lischewski, are on one such list. Two of its executives have also pleaded guilty.

The team awkwardly congratulated Casey on Twitter and the responses were as expected.

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

Reports indicated the Raptors wanted former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer as their next leader, but the Milwaukee Bucks have reportedly scooped Budenholzer.

His departure may have been slightly harsh but being swept for the second straight year by the Cavs was the final straw for him and president Masai Ujiri felt the need to make a change.

It would not be surprising for the Raps to promote an internal candidate like assistant coach Nick Nurse.
