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.
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
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.
trading draft pick (Roy Hibbert) for a broken down JO
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"
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.
