Casey Raves About Hayes’ Old Man Strength

Dwane Casey Rudy Gay trade

“It goes back to years of experience. Chuck (Hayes) has old man strength. That’s the difference. It is. His base is so strong you try to back him down and you just can’t. Where as with Jonas (Valanciunas) he has to learn that. It just takes time. He’ll learn it, but Chuck just knows how to hold his position with that old man strength on (Al) Jefferson and (Marc) Gasol. Also, too, he has the respect of the officials. I think he had one tough call Sunday against Gasol but he did a heck of a job in using his experience and old man strength.”
