There’s so much uncertainty hovering over the NBA that virtually anything remains possible, even when the impossible gets floated in rumours or leaked to serve some agenda.

Whether it involves the future of LeBron James, Phil Jackson’s hand-picked choice to coach the Knicks, the Cavs’ pursuit of a head coach to lead a team that continues to luck out in the draft lottery, there’s no shortage of off-the-court drama and storylines as another dark night, the second in a row, would greet the league’s conference finals.

Under the strange but true file is this revelation: Dwane Casey is suddenly third in terms of coaching tenure in the East, a staggering number that underscores the fickle life of a head coach in today’s NBA game where appointments are made on the whims of owners, where firings are played out with no logic.

Miami’s Erick Spoelstra, whom Heat executive Pat Riley turned to in 2008, is in the dean in the East.
