One more thing comes to mind - this rebuild that we all like, for all the right reasons, was not what BC came into the season with. He says he was forced into it due to injuries, and something about just realizing they didn't have the talent (like you didn't see that before the season started Bryan?). He says they changed their tact in early December, which oddly coincides with the initial reports of the team being up for sale. So maybe he was forced into the rebuild by circumstances. Maybe it was what Eversley had expressed to Silvestri as something that was obvious to everyone in the summer, except Colangelo. Colangelo says that he allowed his ego to take a hit, but maybe that hit came from some clarity from above him, on the occasion when such details would matter a lot more.

Now that's speculating, but no more than the idea that some guy at the top is just stupid. Of course it all comes down to making the team as attractive as possible to suitors, but if Colangelo is such a clear choice for the future of this team, then him staying would not be an issue. The status quo was in doubt back in November, and now the guy that gave us that status quo is in doubt. And we can hope that a real shift takes place with new ownership. I don't see how it can be any worse than what we've seen over and over thus far.
