This is exactly what ive been trying to say a long time ago. There was no way BC was going to trade Bosh unless he either directly stated to him that he wanted to be traded or public said it through the media. BC has balls, but not big enough to do something like that. No GM can.
todd maclean had a good point on 24 in 30.
he basically said with all the things that are going to happen with mlse, i.e. the teachers selling their majority share, peddie leaving
they just didn't feel like or have the time too send out search parameters and such too find a new gm.

Sometimes, I like to buy a book on CD and listen to it, while reading music.
His 'crying' was the whole Chris quit on the team and that he lied or deceived him in some way. He said he's the cornerstone and a franchise player one minute and the next he's not a franchise player, and we're glad we don't have an 'expensive pair of handcuffs' If you didn't want those handcuffs then why did you offer hima max deal? lol He continually trashed the guy after he went to Miami when th onus of responsibility is on HIM to protect the interests of the franchise, which he didn't do.
It matters to me how much a GM is getting paid because if your the highest paid in the league I would expect some results. Or is that not reasonable to expect? I'm a fan so just like we compare players and coaches salaries I want to know that our high price GM is worth the investment.... which he isn't.
'Misleading and and hindsight' is what BC does best! He should have seen that coming a mile away if that was truly the deal.
I don't know what "he's better at" than anymore cause look at where the Raps are. Stop living off the past rep and look at what is. It's not pretty.
Colangelo has certainly made a few errors in his tenure, but I think trading Bosh before he became a free agent was really only one in hindsight.
Colangelo felt that he had built a team that was good enough to convince Bosh to stay. You want to blame him for that? Go ahead. That I can understand. The team he built simply did not have the defensive pieces to contend. But the last thing I want is a GM with no confidence in himself and who trades any player he thinks might leave. People are so afraid the Raptors will turn into the Clippers. That would be the quickest way to turn them into them.
Bryan Colangelo very upbeat,for obvious reasons. Says he likes this draft more than most. Likes "both PGs- Knight and Walker," also the bigs
Jonathan Givony talking to Bryan Colangelo at the Draft Lottery.
I am very happy he has been resigned. I'm also glad it is for a shorter tenure as he did not deserve a 5 year $20M deal as he had before. The results - while decent given Raptor history - were not spectacular of late. With that said, there had never been such high expectations on the team under his tenure either.
The flip side of the argument you make above is now the haters will be left to watch the best years of the franchise unfold.
Step 1: re-sign BC - accomplished.
Step 2: find out draft selection - pending.
Step 3: trade Bargnani - waiting.
