    The biggest mistake by far was hiring jay triano at a juncture where we had one year to be competitive...scott skiles, avery johnson, jeff van gundy, doug collins were just some of the coaches available at the time and we picked probably the worst coach ever...underqualified...had no clue what he was doing

    you couple that with Hedo and the fact that it was bosh's last year...that was a killer and honestly stupid

    Colangelo may not have one failure that stands out but he makes many marginally poor moves that consistently degrade the talent on this team.
    Examples?

    Trades

    Charlie V. >>> TJ Ford (plus 1st round pick) >>> Jermaine O'neal >>> Shawn Marion >>>> Turkoglu >>>> Barbosa >>>>> 2nd rounder
    Net result = two first round picks for a second rounder

    First rounder >>> James Johnson >>>> second round pick

    Bosh >>>> nothing

    Signings

    Kleiza 5M/per yr
    Fields 6.6M/per yr
    Amir 5-7M/per yr

    He may not have dicked up any one thing that badly, but his body of work is awful when you think of it.

    Doug Collins was available!? Brian Colangelo is officially the stupidest GM in the league. He's top 5 easy

    Accumulations of Errors is the biggest error:

    Building team around Bosh
    Not trading Bosh or getting anything substaintial for Bosh.
    Drafting Bargnani
    Hiring Triano
    trading draft pick (Roy Hibbert) for a broken down JO
    Signing Turkoglu
    Overpaying for scrubs
    Average draft picks - Other then Ed Davis and JV all other picks had better players selected.
    Believing he can create a Euro style team which then changed to a balanced 2 team unit which then changed to a "defence"
    oriented team.

    I am sure there are others I missed but it seems like Colangelo has been more busy running around and fixing his own mistakes then builiding a winning team.

    Oh, stop with the hindsight nonsense.... If you can't use hindsight you can never evaluate anyone. Plus, there were plenty of us who thought the Turkoglu signing was stupid. The Orlando GM and SVG were telling everyone the guy was lazy and didn't care and that Portland dodged a bullet. None of that was hindsight.
    except these are the same guys who traded gortat for turk a year later
