Andrea came at a high price, he was the first overall pick. A 3 point shooting 7 footer with zero defence or rebounding. Any roster spot in a league such as the NBA is a high price, you try to get players who are either very talented or can fill a role, you don't get players because they are a certain nationality.

I think Bellinelli is overrated around here anyways, he's selfish and leaves his feet all the time and ends up turning the ball over. He's taking a roster spot and valuable minutes that could go to another player who is a better fit.

I've had this issue with BC for a while now, I just decided to post it here now. Even if they had a better record, it doesn't change anything about my opinion. Bottom line is the man is biased and it has affected his decision making, that is unnacceptable.

I know that Toronto has a large Italian population and there's many Italian/Canadian Raptors fans here. But I gotta call it like it is, Italy is not exactly the hotbed of basketball talent either. This has stink written all over it.
You don't like the job BC does stand in line cause its not the first time someone came out and complained. BCs job is to win and sell tickets and no it doesn't matter how he does it but as long as it is done. When you hire someone to do a job you don't breathe down their neck just let them get to work.

You could say Italian Bias .. others could say trying to sell some tickets. I don't know and quite frankly I really don't care. I don't get all pissed off at things I can't control and neither should you. Maybe you need another hobby or something I don't know.
