BC has experience judging and selecting talent, as well as well as experience in rebuilding a roster into a successful Playoff team.
I don't think Bryan is out to shill MLSE out of their money. And frankly so long as Executives Salaries don't count against the Cap, then what do we care? Nor is he out to screw the organization.
He's got a reputation that he needs to fix and maintain. That's all an Executive is hired on, is reputation. There's no way he could go out and get the kind of hype and backing now, that he could 5 years ago. So I'm not sure this 'leverage' is real. If he's looking to move on, or use NY as a bargaining chip, I'm sure MLSE isn't going to beg him to stay either.
I never said there was a lack of knowledgable Executives. There are absolutely TONS.
I said that compared to BC, anyone that comes in would likely be less experienced, and less-prepared to draft for the Raptors.
No one knows the team, or its needs, better than BC right now.
