Actually I think Apollo came out from left field with his 'statement' that no GM would come here with a team that got blown up. I don't think there is a single person in the universe who thinks it should (or could) be done before a GM is hired.
I didn't say "no GM" is said no high profile GM. The Raptors are the kiss of death, just look at that track record. The emphasis needs to be on turning the ship right now. Ripping it down is a controversial approach anyway. For every success story you have half a dozen horror stories; Raptors included multiple times.
