    I hope he's gone after the season. I think we can all admit that he made a mistake in the draft when he should've picked Andre Drummond as he and JV would give us a dominant front court for years to come. Instead he picks Ross (who cant even get playing time and looks lost out there).

    Andrea Bargnani is the BIGGEST issue i have with BC. I dont like the coddling, the BIG contract and the constant excuses. I dont trust BC to trade bargs (7 years with this bum?? - is a joke).

    Rogers/Bell/MLSE - PLEASE DO NOT pick up BC's 3rd year option!!!
    Ross isn't getting playing time more because of Casey's man crush on Anderson than anything. He's going to be a great player.

    Something just dawned on me, do you think BC/Casey went full "playoffs or bust!" because they knew their jobs are on the line, and that's why they went HARD after Lowry and Gay?

    BC always says what people want to hear during the offseason but the way he was talking about "building the right way" and whatnot, I thought he finally got it into his dense skull what it took to build a team. A few months later he's negated any and all financial flexibility with the DD deal and Gay contract.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is please fire BC and Casey and get some competent people in here. Please.

    I hope your right (although great players usually get more playing time IMO).......unless their rookies on WINNING teams.

    It's Casey, dude. He's coaching to save his job.

    Also, when have the raptors ever done anything that makes sense? We're the NBA equivalent of the Cleveland Browns.

    I like the idea.

    I actually think Jerry Sloan would make a better GM than Phil Jackson. Sloan's teams always seemed to overachieve without MVP talent on his rosters (minus the Stockton/Malone years). And I'm sure his voice was integral when drafting/trading for players. I would reach out to him in that regard.

    Let Colangelo do his job, he is the right man for the Job. How do you think Demar got to play with the American select team and got better. Oh senior Colangelo runs USA basketball, makes sense, he has more connections than any other GM in this league. Let the man do what he needs to do, he is the right man for the job so stop trying to run him out of town. For all those people who talk about his drafting and say he is horrible you are retarded. Colangelo has drafted names like, Steve Nash, Amare Stoudamire, Joe Johnson, and another great point guard and current tripple double leader in the NBA Jason Kidd. The man knows what he is doing he is one of the only constants in the NBA, he rocks and we will be fine boys. This is the best man for the job like I said.
    Colangelo did not draft "great point guard and current tripple double leader in the NBA" Kidd, he was drafted by Dallas. So is Joe Johnson, who was drafted by Boston. He did draft Nash but he was buried in the bench because PHX had KJ, Cassell and later Kidd. He eventually traded him to Dallas. So of all the names that you mentioned to support BC's good drafting history, it was only Amare that he drafted and kept.

    I dunno about hiring these guys who have been out of basketball for some time. Not to mention they were coaches and aren't familiar with the whole selling aspect needed as a general manager. I think of either one of these guys more as an associate or adviser, kind of like the way the Raptors used Jack McCloskey in the past.

    Pat Riley did a pretty good job in Miami

    A big name with a track record buys you a few things.

    - Instant credibility with free agents, agents, your own players
    - They have a good/great eye for coaches, GMs, scouts, etc.
    - They understand how winning basketball organizations function
    - They understand the importance of delegation and hiring people to shore up their own weaknesses (every great head coach is surrounded by great assistants)

    None of those items are present in Toronto at the moment.

    We're talking about Sloan, or Jackson as president and hiring their own GM.

    He could do the job from LA, fly in every few weeks, and hire a GM to run things day-to-day.

    BC has done a remarkable job as GM of the raptors. Has he made mistakes, sure but he has cleaned them up pretty well. He also got Amir Johnson for basically nothing, a fact that is overlooked by many.

    He drafted Bargs in a weak draft, in fact other then Gay, Aldridge, Rondo and Foye everyone else is out of the league that came out of that draft, is out of the league as far as I know.

    -DeRozan
    -Davis
    -JV
    -T Ross

    All the players he drafted were non-polished high ceiling type players, I think BC deserves another 3 years so we can see his pieces fully develop.

    Also if he gets the boot, Stefanski takes over.
