    Not to say that I trust, but I'm putting my trust in these guys not to fuck with us like that. I either wanna see some nice pieces added, or stockpile the youngins. No re-tread, useless(for the most part) 2nd-3rd stringers posing as potential starters for us. ie. Landry Fields. It still boggles my mind how he got that deal... ugh.

    Happy trails, BC!

    Turk is guaranteed $6m this season. I'd take him to cut him to lose Bargnani. Save $16 over amnesty with same effects.

    Sooner than expected but no surprise. His ego would never let him take such a role long term. I suspect he will land somewhere else shortly in a permanent role that dad and the NBA league office will arrange for him....

    He could also be building DeMar/Rudy/Kyle so that they are more attractive assets to other teams. Talking big about them in the media could also be doing the team a favour in that they could be getting better assets in a return trade.

    Highly speculative of course, but I don't personally put to much stock in anything people say to the media anymore. Actions speak much louder than words.
    True. It is the season of misinformation.

    been nothing but belittling from tim about bc. i think tim didn't get his way when he came in but he is a guy who that doesn't stop him. the power of firing bc was taken from him so he changed and got his way another way.

    How do you sugarcoat the truth?

    People aren't stupid. They would interpret the message the same but then they'd slam TL for being corporate or politically correct or wimpy or spineless.
    Sugarcoat? The truth is refreshing enough as it is, and that's far from sugar.

    I disagree. People are stupid.

    Hopefully actions coming...

    MU did say the direction will be known by draft.
    With the news that Masai goes back to the office @ 1 in the morning after an evening w/ Rudy Gay and festivities, I would imagine hes not exactly twiddling his fingers and toes or fapping to some pr0n.

    Moves are definitely in the works. I have no idea how Masai does his job so it will be interesting what happens.

    BTW. Did I mention BC is gone?

    you all forget. TL put colangelo there to help build the brand, and help build basketball canada, two things bc already had a big role in previous years.

    bc stepping down from that role only goes to show as further proof of his inflated and selfish ego, if he couldnt even come to terms with that to further help the raptors and basketball canada in the future.

    the raptors are now truly free of the cancer that is bryan colangelo, and most of his cronies. this is cause for celebration.

    I was surprised he even took the job in the first place. Not going to bash a man when he's down - did enough of that when he was in power. Good luck to him, just wasn't a good GM for the Raptors and never read the free-agent market right.

    I think we might all be be over-thinkoing about this. BC could have just gone to Tim and said "I want out" and Tim could have been like "alright, well we got a spot in the organization for you where you don't have to do anything, we'll keep you on the payroll and in the meantime you can look for a new job. BC says "Sweet, thanks Tim".

    Although that is just my opinion, who knows whats going to happen... Fuck I can't wait for tomorrow.

    I could believe this more if tim hadn't been so obvious, in almost all of his interviews, that he isn't a bc fan. I think tannenbaum is the reason bc got to stay on the payroll and i think the agreed upon "there for advice" was something bc thought might keep him in the loop.

    More likely he is ostricized in the office like he has the plague. I doubt anyone has asked him his opinion on anything and everywhere he looks everyone he has hired has been fired or talked about finally be able to do it thier way, cough cough casey.

    Going from "great idea bryan, haha funny joke bryan" to most people not looking you in the eye anymore has to be a bit rattling. Now he has an excuse to get his check from home. No more office work.

    He did make it obvious that he isn't a fan of what BC did with the team. It does not he doesn't like Bryan as a person and wouldn't do something like that for him. I'm sure they have some sort of personal relationship aside from their business one.

    I can totally see the having a personal relationship but i can also totally see tim as the kind of guy who lets his brother go if he messed up.

    I, again total personal opinion here, see tim as the kind of person who at those meetings would have offered a severance package and sent bc on his way. He went public with the fact he lost the battle to fire him completely, then bc went on damage control and still tim went public about bryan havinv no say.

    Reading too much into it, i totally agree but i don't think tim did any favours for bc.

    this totally reinforces my view that Lewieke's merciless style and repeated slams were an attempt to force BC out
    Agreed. My belief is that he was too embarrassed to see his entire staff be shown the door in such a short period of time.

    Happy Trails BC! He has failed as a GM, but you can't take away that he did try to improve the Raptors post-VC. Although I wished that he was more patient and built on the draft, not traded/overpaid to quick fix the roster, traded the raps best assets who are not franchise-player material (rupaul, pasta) or at least got some assets in return. I feel sad coz I really think he's a very classy guy, but it's time to move on.

    I still think he will get another gig as GM. Afterall, he did an excellent job in Phoenix before coming here.

    There are three guys that I could see Bryan quitting the team over: Bargnani, DeRozan or Gay.

    Moving Bargnani is inevitable.. but I'd be very curious if MU trades Gay or DD tomorrow. Exciting times!
    I personally don't want to see Rudy gone, just because he has finally filled in a void well, or potentially well, that we so long have had. DeRozan and Bargnani, I don't mind one bit.
