Raptors fans are wise to ignore the 'heat' GM Bryan Colangelo supposedly faces: Smith
I think I need some help here.
All last week, and actually for a few weeks, I’ve been told that this guy or that guy (specifically Bryan Colangelo and Dwane Casey) need to be “feeling the heat.”
What does it mean?
Especially about the GM.
Do you think he’s not trying to make moves to make his team better? Like he’s not making calls and seeing what’s out there?
Does it mean every single story ever written on these guys has to point out the last five years? That’s kind of boring and repetitive and, frankly, not something I feel like doing.
Sure, we write every day than things aren’t good, their record is in every game story and I think the tone of the most pieces would echo the fact they begin this trip 4-13.
But “heat” is such a strange and vague term it’s almost wise to ignore it.
Should we somehow be urging him to do something every single day? Like that’s going to force him to make a move? Should we call for someone’s firing once or twice a week without any suggestion of what a replacement might be?
No, not a chance. Sorry. We continue to point out how things are, what the problems are, how they might be fixed.
That’s about all the “feeling the heat” you’re going to get here, or really should anywhere.
