Yesterday, Bryan Colangelo, the President of the Toronto Raptors, resigned his position in order to become a consultant with the club. In other news, water in a liquid form has definitively been proven to be wet.
Tim Leiweke constructed as rickety an executive structure as I’ve ever seen when he rearranged the Raptors’ front office. Kicking someone upstairs, rather than out (as Leiweke did when he named Colangelo President, but without actual basketball authority, all of which is in the hands of Masai Ujiri), works approximately 0.00% of the time it is tried. As a face-saving gesture, it’s a flop, and must be dreadfully awkward for those involved. A few weeks of this foolishness was more than enough for Colangelo, and I strongly suspect he won’t remain as consultant for long either. My guess? BC is packing up his house and family as I write.
I think it’s too soon to determine his legacy as Raps’ GM. We’ll need to circle back to this topic towards the end of the upcoming season.
What are your thoughts, Rapture Nation? Are you sad to see BC gone, or is it “Good Riddance” in your view? Let us know in the comments.
