Dwane Casey’s wife Brenda Casey has had two kids in the past 7 years, and their names are Justine and Zachary. Justine’s about 7 years old now, and Zachary is around 4 years old. The family really does enjoy living in the city of Toronto, it seems. Dwane has said Toronto is the best NBA city ahead of other cities like New York (which he ranked second), Dallas, and Los Angeles. I’m not sure how I feel about that, but I do know Brenda is enjoying her life as a mom and NBA wife.
In an interview with the Toronto Star about two years ago, Dwane said that his wife Brenda would say he cries any time he goes to the movies. I think that’s a pretty powerful statement, especially for an NBA coach. You cry every time you go to the movies, ey? Brenda married an emotional guy, I guess. It was actually a fairly revealing interview: Dwane said his biggest regret was not being able to save Eddie Griffin from dying (he died in a car crash and led a hectic life). That’s pretty intense. Anyway, what can we say about Brenda– she’s a very nice lady who was one of the three ice bucket-dumpers in Dwane’s ice bucket challenge. She made him come back so Zach could dump his little bucket of ice on him after the main ice dump. Brenda is also a sports marketing executive (or she used to be) and one of her clients was Ben Wallace. That was back around 2007 so she may have just quit after having the kids, but that’s pretty cool. She played basketball for much of her life as well, and she understands it as well as any coach’s wife. Brenda certainly seems like the ideal coach wife and mom with that kind of background.
