    What do you mean Matt? You didn't see Ross' 360 dunk at UW last week? He's the TRUTH!

    But seriously, this looks like he couldn't handle Leweike. He basically thanked everyone but Big L. He knows that he can get work elsewhere so why stick it out if you don't like the new boss? They still have to pay him.

    Personally, I would be stunned if they moved Demar or Rudy. They've pretty much spun all their PR around those guys. Raptors4Life has a legit point -- they could have concentrated on JV, Ross, leaked rumors about signing that CIS kid...lots of ways to keep things hush until trades are made in early July. We'll probably get some idea tomorrow what's going on though.
    Why would he thank TL? He didn't work with him really did he? He didn't spend any time with him for the past 7 years and his only interaction with him was to be removed from the GM role. Why would he thank him? He considers himself a basketball man, and wants to be part of the basketball decisions. That is all.

    ....and might be going to the Nets. You can't write this stuff. There are 30 nba teams and he's going to get hired by the one that has Bargnani?

    This part is confusing:

    The Nets, sources say, have been drawn to Colangelo because of his strong track record in building contenders in both Phoenix and Toronto as well as his varied experiences over more than two decades in the league.

    When was Toronto ever considered a contender under Colangelo?

    Bryan loved giving away his draft picks.. so the Nets are actually the perfect team for him since they don't have any

    Just realized it's been nearly 3 yrs. since he's been gone from the Raps. That's a long time before getting a serious (public) nibble from another team. He can trade with dad if he gets the job.

    Nets need to re-stock their draft picks and Philly (where dad Jerry is) has a ton of them. It could make both teams mediocre. Colangelo collusion coming?

    So between the Sixers and the Nyets, it's gonna be Jerry Colangelo vs. Bryan Colangelo?

    There is a thought that BC built this team (especially the last two years) and I could see how some owners would think that (though I think thats a key error because of additions by subtractions)

    IF BC gets the job, you absolutely know he's going to try to make a big splash quickly (with the team bottoming out 3-5 years later). Might be an opportunity for Masai to flip some assets for a future un-protected Nets 1st rounder for an over-rated "name" veteran, in a 3-way trade.

    So there is literally zero point in tanking. Colangelo would help. He's not a masterful gm by any stretch, but he's sure a hell of a lot better than Billy king. He was actually above average in a lot of facets. One thing that held him back was his desperation to bring a A"star" to this "small market" but he'll be with a city that has more cache among nba players, I think he'd do well in bk.

    When BC traded Araujo away for Hump (future Kardashian) in 2006, I thought it was a GOD move. Maybe BC will do OK trades that will favor Nets down the road

    I think he'll actually do well because of this. The lack of picks will force him to work to his strength, which is gathering win-now talent.

    With only Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young (their best two players) on the books for 2017-18, and Bojan Bogdanovic with a small player option, they'll have a ton of capspace to play with.

    In any case if they make it back to the playoffs by then it'll add another fun dimension to the TOR-BRK rivalry.
