Frankly, the kid gloves should be off with Colangelo too. It's all well and good to acknowledge your mistakes and try and correct them but at some point, people have to recognize that we're going in the wrong direction.

Drafting Aldridge and keeping Hibbert instead of throwing him away for a washed up O'neal and this team would be light years ahead of where they are now...they may have even been able to keep Bosh. Who knows.
Aldridge was too similar to Bosh.

Hibbert was drafted for Indiana. Who even knows who the Raps would've drafted for themselves.
