    Worked well enough for the Leafs
    Maybe I don't understand what you mean but 'not really'. Leafs are making the play-offs for the first time since 2004(if I'm right).

    Right after they fired Burke and let the coach run the team the way he wanted.

    I don't think that's what's happening with the Leafs(Carlisle is a good Coach but Nonis is clearly in charge), but if they fire Colangelo and let Casey run the team the way he wanted, it'll be suicidal.

    Default Colangelo and Casey not going anywhere

    According to hoopshype Bryan Colangelo and Dwane Casey arent going anywhere. MLSE has no intention of letting them go.

    Ryan Wolstat with a scathing article on Colangelo.

    I would like to know.. if there has been, in the history of the NBA, another General Manager that kept his job for 7 years with the following (or worse record):

    - 2 playoff appearances
    - zero playoff series won
    - 240-318 record, 0.430 winning percentage
    your pal,

    Default Risk/Reward

    They should fire him if they feel there is a better option available and likely interested. There is an element of risk with any change but at some point if the risk makes sense then they should get it done.

    current:

    John Hammond/Milwaukee
    - 2 playoff appearances
    - zero series won
    - 238-316, .427

    Geoff Petrie/Sacramento
    - 0 playoff appearances
    - 0 playoff series won
    - 187-371, .335

    Ernie Grunfield/Washington
    - 2 playoff appearances
    - 0 playoff series won
    - 201- 357, .360

    Billy King/Brooklyn-NJ Nets
    - 2 playoff appearances (including this year)
    - 0 playoff series wins (might change soon)
    - 216-342, .387


    One more year and Rod Higgins/Charlotte and Joe Dumars/Detroit joins the illustrious club.

    Historically, I'm not sure.

    Can we add Phil Jackson to the list?
