Ed Stefanski keeping BC from making stupid moves
 
Quote:

Raptors President and general manager Bryan Colangelo has been adamant that he wants to make the playoffs every year even after it had become obvious to most people that the team was heading towards a rebuilding period with the loss of free agent All-Star Chris Bosh last season. Even now Colangelo finds himself easily drawn back into that mindset.

“I expect to make the playoffs every year based on what I would like to do,” said Colangelo at an informal media session on Wednesday. “I would like to win basketball games.”

This year is different however. This year Colangelo has a longer term plan and hired former 76ers general manager Ed Stefanski to keep him on track and away from short term fixes. This Raptors plan is definitely geared towards next season and beyond.

“Every time I get lured back in, it proves Ed’s worth to the equation cause he said I’ll tackle you on the way to the phone if you want to pursue that,” explained Colangelo.

“Obviously everyone up here is very competitive,” explained Stefanski. “When you have some cap space and you have chances to use money and you see names out there, you get excited because you could improve the team quickly, but not improve the team into what we want to be, a championship caliber team.

“It is very difficult and I understand where Bryan is because I have been in the same spot. It is a lot easier as the number two guy to slow the number one guy down because we want to get better as soon as possible but we have to stay the course.”

Before I didn't really see the value of another GM, but now I do.

Already been discussed in the presser thread.

As an aside - can you imagine being actually tackled by Ed? That's a whole lot of man, right there... ;)

yes, yes it did.

Too bad Ed wasn't here a few years ago when we traded hibbert away for JO.. It's going to be tough watching Hibbert develop, especially now that he'll have West in the front court.
