    Default A new reality in the NBA universe under the new CBA

    Another reason for optimism in Raptorland:

    "It wasn't that long ago that deals were always done for talent reasons," Penn said. "But more and more, deals ... are being done for financial, contractual reasons. It's an advantage for an organization to have a creative, dynamic deal maker. This isn't just adding up numbers and seeing if trades work. It's about thinking more creatively, strategically, and understanding the books and finances of other teams and what's motivating other teams. That's the secret sauce."

    Colangelo and his staff have proven to fit the mold of the above quote. I do think this is important in the new reality of a much more punitive NBA tax system and a much more generous revenue sharing system.

    The new punitive tax structure doesn't kick in until the 2013-14 season. I wonder if teams will already start positioning themselves to dump salary (and possibly a good player) this summer?

    Let's just say we wouldn't be surprised.

    His history.

    He has been involved in numerous complicated and enormous multiplayer transactions invoking loopsholes or fine print of the CBA.

    He has shown the ability to be creative in making deals, in my opinion, with an eye on the salary cap and bottom line.


    I realize you are not a fan of Colangelo and it should be no shock I am a fan. I think we've been through this conversation many times before. I'm going to respectfully bow out from any debate on his merits as a GM at this time. I don't think there is anything new that can be added right now and with so much flexibility currently at his finger tips, I'll wait to revisit my opinion until later this summer.

    All I have to say is if you're going to argue or compare.
    You need something to equal the 2 exec of they year awards.
