Actually its fair to assess and compare them in the last 2 years,Colangelo realistically has more of an advantage since he's been around longer but we can ignore his distant past.

Colangelo had an equal opportunity to build a playoff team. He was given an eventual head coach of the year who won the award in BC's first season. He then fired that coach because he didn't compliment his 1st overall pick(which was also given to him in his first full year) Andre Bargnani, who he took over Rudy Gay(the same player the Raptors fanbase is thirsting over currently). Ujiri is NOT a rookie,he's in his 3rd season and the make up of the team he has now from when he took over is very different but still considered to be a playoff contender because of HIS transactions. BC is stubborn at times,and this has cost the Raptors. He was warned about Bosh leaving but wanted him for a playoff push(8th place) that wouldn't go deep. BC dropped the ball there! They both had assets but Ujiri has been better at maintaing value for those assets and I give him the edge because he understands that some times you have to cut your losses and move on.
