Bryan Colangelo has decided to step down but in true MLSE Fashion he still will be a consultant. The timing on the eve of the NBA draft is somewhat interesting. Does B.C have serious issues with plan Masai Ujiri has for the future. I doubt will ever know. This might be the clearest sign we have that the Raptors might be going into full reconstruction mode. It is all just speculation at this point.
Here is what B.C had to say in a press release from the Raptors.
had a better chance to reflect on things for the past several weeks, I
have concluded that stepping away from my position is the best course
of action for the organization and everyone involved."
The only question I have is why bother with this consultant nonsense. We saw the same situation with Brian Burke and the Leafs. Enough already with this nonsense, let's get on with it. This makes the whole comedy of how this all would workout by both Tim Leiweke and Masai Ujiri seem laughable.
Ask anyone in the media that covers this team if they believed it would and pretty confident no one would have agreed with them. B.C was the king of the rose coloured glasses approach to this team. We as people that cover this team and you as fans that pay attention to this team are not fools.
It kind of is like when parents that are getting divorced assure the children that everything will be alright. It seldom works out that way and Bryan Colangelo being kicked out of his office and sleeping on the couch down the hall was doomed to fail and everyone knew it.
I do give Bryan the credit for being the one to realize this obvious fact and step aside. A lot easier to do when you get one of those consultant checks for doing nothing. I really need to land that job.
