Default Colangelo - Conflict of interest

I was always a BC believer, but its about time he gets fired. Clearly a conflict of interest is happening, everyone has witnessed it over these past few days.

Why was Colangelo so eager to bring in Steve Nash? One could argue its the development of the players, but no, he was just trying to save himself. Lets be real, if Nash signed with Toronto the MLSE would make incredible amounts of money off of it, if Colangelo could bring that cash flow into the MLSE there is no way they'd get rid of him. If the Raptors were at the bottom of the eastern conference for the next few years, Colangelo would still have his job because he saved his own ass.

Signing Landry Fields sealed the deal. You never heard of any Landry Fields hype from fans or management, Colangelo screwed over the organization just to save his own ass in hopes of signing Nash. Colangelo signed fields with no intention of making a better basketball team, he did it to have a higher chance at getting Nash which ultimately saves himself.

A conflict of interest is happening, this is enough reason for him to get fired.
