The immediate success of '06-'07 created the illusion that the team was prepared to take the next step to becoming a title contender. The team that year was making a lot of threes. Ergo, Kapono would be a great fit. Last season they couldn't rebound, so he reacts by trading for J.O. That doesn't work out so he moves him for Marion. Yadda yadda.
Moves to plug holes instead of being part of a bigger picture.

It's hard to blame the guy. I drank the kool-aid like most and thought they'd be a much better team. I'm by no means calling for Colangelo's head. I just want to see a concrete plan put into action instead of piddly-ass moves just to sneak into the playoffs.
Ah, ok cool. I agree with that.

When you called him reactionary, I thought that you might have meant that he was conservative with his moves, which is why I was confused.

He's definitely pushing aggressively for what he thinks of as progress, although people may disagree with his assessment of exactly what 'progress' is.
