    LOL. These rankings are pointless.

    Does anyone take this seriously?

    Yeah, but not all the guys they list are decision-makers*. Most of them are just majority owners. Some of them occupy the CEO position, some of them don't. The common thread is ownership, not executive standing....as far as I can tell. Definitely does not seem right to have Peddie on that list. It should probably be Tanenbaum, who's the chariman and has been the largest private stakeholder for awhile (in terms of a single individual).

    *In fact, they're supposed to have a whole different ranking for decision-makers, focusing on presidents/GMs. So definitely makes no sense to have Peddie/Leiweke here.
    You're right on both counts. ESPN now has Tanenbaum in place of Peddie. And yeah, GM rankings include presidents.

    It's crowdsourcing. Not to be taken as fact, but definitely a valid reflection of perception.

    It's nonsense.... it's just an opinion poll of some random people (most without the robust industry knowledge to be an expert) but it's being presented as some sort of legitimate study of organizations.

    LOL. I love how they attributed a weight of 26.5% to the importance of an owner. Good grief. Not 25%. It's that extra 1.5% that's key. I can't get over how ludicrous this is....

    They say they averaged it out. I would guess some people wrote 30%, some wrote 25% etc, and that's how you have 26.5%.

    The average of 30% and 25% is 27.5%...

    Your math is terrific. However he said "some" not "half". Some is not a precise amount.

    Although 26.5 is a rather odd, specific amount for a vague percentage.

    Not sure I understand what you mean here. There were 200+ voters. Each suggested a number. The average of those numbers was 26.5.

    So these are the final Raptors rankings:

    Coach (Casey) - #12

    Top Execs (Ujiri/Weltman) - #9

    Ownership (MLSE/Tannenbaum) - #17

    Overall - #13

    The "experts" included range from the very knowledgeable like Abbott and Haberstroh to bloggers like Sam Holako and Blake Murphy From Raptors Republic.

    Edit - Not sure where they should have fit him in, but the lack of mention of Leiweke was puzzling.
