NBA Twitter was somewhat surprised by the Raptors announcing the firing of Dwane Casey, two days after his peers voted him Coach of the Year.

The news wasn't a total shock, because just a few days ago it was reported Toronto was "strongly leaning towards making a coaching change."

Casey is also a strong candidate to win the official Coach of the Year award, which will be presented on June 25.

Following the news, several people in the NBA community reacted to the news. We'll break it down into three groups: current/former players and members of the media.
