Why the BLEEP did they keep him as President?
I am confused as to what his role is gong to be. According to SNET twitter, they said the new GM will report directly to Leiweke which makes BC not really in charge of the Raptors. So the question is what is he going to be doing as the GM? Just marketing?
As long as he doesn’t have a say in transactions, I’m good with this. I’ve been wanting him out since 2008, and I’ll take what I can get.
Why they kept him? Maybe he’s really good at business negotiations, marketing, sponsorship etc., which is fine as long he stays the fuck away from anything to do with signings/trades/player contracts etc.
I think they offered him a role as to not burn the bridge.
From Colangelo’s POV, it’s basically just a paycheck until he finds a new gig.
It sounded like it was an executive, non-basketball, related roll where he would be used as a resource if the GM wanted to do so. Otherwise Nilanka probably is right with the dynamic of the role.
oh, fer fuck’s sake. just cut the gawdamn cord already.
Arsenalist hit it on the head..He’s good at the business side.. we were losing team the whole time he was there, yet we remained profitable.
Why the BLEEP is this just a photo and not the actual conference call is the question.
