    Default With Leiweke on board, what happens to Colangelo now?

    Addressing the status of Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo would appear to be one of the first tasks for Leiweke on the job. The team must decide whether or not to pick up its team option on Colangelo. It is believed Colangelo will present a plan to MLSE’s board of directors early next month.

    It is understood that Colangelo will have to make a presentation to the Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment board in the coming days in hopes of getting his option picked up.

    Can't find where I read it but BC meeting/presentation is May 7th. Wish I could find it.

    Q: Do you have a role in the Bryan Colangelo extension?
    "I have a role in the Bryan Colangelo relationship and we'll see where that goes."

    Also should be noted that Leiweke is no NBA novice. Served as president of Nuggets for four seasons in addition to working for the Wolves.

    If we can't get Phil, he's definitely back.

    If he is serious about competing for championships, good bye BC.


    Crazy thought:

    With the hoopla, joy, and optimism a hiring of Leiweke's calibre, does this allow the Raptors/MLSE to fire Colangelo giving the time and opportunity to go in another direction (i.e. taking a step back to move multiple steps forward and chase championships) without total anarchy from Raptor fans?

    Lets face it, unless JV becomes a dominant, legendary, all-star I cannot see Toronto competing for championships in the next 4 years. Maybe they make 2nd/Conference Final run (I doubt it) but that would be it, not championships.


    By the way, I changed my signature so we never forget and raise our expectations above just making the playoffs.
