You don't hire people who are most like you, you do your job and leave all bias at home. The fact is that most of the moves he's made due to his bias have not worked out and they are responsible for losing games.

This isn't his personal good old boys club, this is a NBA franchise with millions of fans and people who care about the quality of the product.
BC is paid to do a job and he can do that job any way he pleases. If he is banging his hot wife and letting Maurizio hire nothing but people with italian last names and euros so be it.

BC thought this was the team that would win at the time and making a hindsight post is your problem not BCs. BC didn't go out and trade Bosh for Gallanari or get Belli at a high price. He obviously tried to do what he thought was best.

If the team was winning you wouldn't care if they were Italian, pokadots, black or whatever.
