    I wish we had 'an independent owner'. Mark Cuban 2.0 anyone??

    Honestly if the Raptors decline again to what they've been for most of the last 20 years, I'm probably done with them.

    I love the Raptors but their history is much closer to that of the Clippers pre-Chris Paul than anything relevant.

    It is too painful to put so much energy in to following an organization content to be profitable and mediocre at best.

    I wonder if a part of that move includes a stake in ownership?

    Anything less with be the final knife in my heart.

    A lateral move is a slap in the face and only confirms all that was said to be not true (weather, etc.).

    I feel like MLSE paid these writers and media guys to talk about "weather issues" in order to take attention away from them. As to say "We're committed to winning, Tim just hated winter"

    I say we hire Charles Barkley just so he can micromanage the shit out of the broadcast team and replace Leo. I want to hear 23 turribles per broadcast. Basketball, hockey, AND soccer.
    I agree with this whole heartedly.

    At this point I hope MLSE just doesn't fuck with the Raps and lets Masai run this shit like he owns it.

    I think Tim's culture shift will live on. Before him the lame duck teachers pension plan culture was in place but post-Tim the Rogers/Bell ownership group has the most to gain from winning.

    MLSE did go out of their way to get TL in the first place. I just don't see why they would go back to the way things were when the OTP owned MLSE. I think the #weTheNorth, the '16 ASG and the interest in the soccer club by spending big bucks on two players are probably all reasons why I could see MLSE continuing with that vision. Maybe I'm just being naive though.

    I do hope that Masai would want to stick around after his contract ends. With Tim gone that may not be guaranteed.

    It's going to be interesting to see who they go after next. Hopefully it's an executive with a sports background. One that enjoys basketball more than any other sport.

    MLSE should let Masai Ujiri do his warlord things and don't interfere!

    Actually, perhaps the mandate for the next CEO should include not being so old that a bit of cold makes your arthritis flare up. Scratch the Jerry West idea.

    A name I hear floating around is Mark Cohon recently departed/ing commish of the CFL. Wonder if it is a coincidence or....

    He is son of the long time head of McDonald's in Canada and a bit of a player in Toronto biz circles. Pretty sure he'd have connections with Tanenbaum & Lastman the 2 directors other than those representing Rogers & Bell. He'd be a decidedly lightweight replacement imo as compared to TL....not enough international gravitas.
