It was indeed used correctly here, but so many people interchange the words, using them correctly or incorrectly at the same time, that reading the thread title, I (1)Assumed it was an April fool's day thread (2) Wasn't sure if somebody used it correctly.

I did one of these on the old board one year about Joey Graham getting kicked out of the league for steroids, and people didn't realize it was an April fool's joke until the second page.

It was used properly. But I think what he meant was a lot of people mis spell Re-sign so he just looked at the title and assumed it was a speculative article about Colangelo being close to re-signing.

Indeed.

Not to be critical of Acie However, something like "Colangelo will step down, Gherardini to make draft pick" would have had a better chance of giving me a mild heart attack.

Why? How well do you know Gherardini? Seems foolish to suggest he'd be terrible at drafting.

Well, first of all, I never suggested he would be bad at drafting.... it would, however, be his first draft in the NBA at a critical juncture in our development as a team. Secondly, with all the "euro hate" going on around this board, I'm sure that his penchant for leaning towards drafting some unknown European prospect would horrify some fans.

Uhhhm, with all the Bargnani hate around here lately, do you not think he was instrumental in bringing him here?

How the hell would he be considered an unknown at the 2006 draft?

I remenber a few years back in a interview, he wanted the Raptors to acquire Belinelli and go in the draft acquire Gallinari. Here is Gheardhini draft card

1. Donatas Motiejunas - gotta get him, he is the next Andrea Bargnani, gotta moved up the draft. Wow, two Andrea Bargnanis, NBA champioship here we come!!

2. Enes Kanter - a taller Dino Radja. Team Europe, here we go!!!

1... they did acquire belinelli... for Devean George. Are you advocating that was a bad move? He's doing ok in Nola.
2. Gallinari isn't any good?
3. Your take on Donatas is pure speculative hate. Why bother.
4. Dino Radja was a solid NBA big. Nothing wrong with talented bigs....

From the interview, its shows Gherardini favoritism for European players. When he was hired as assistant GM, I know he wanted to show that the play of International Basketball can be successful in the NBA. His draft card was just sarcasm.

You said he has a penchant for drafting unknow Europeans. When I asked you what unknown european he drafted (especially since he's never been an nba GM) and you said he had a hand in us draft Bargnani. Who was a sure top three pick.
