What do you mean, AA has been extremely successful and has done exactly what you want to see out of a GM. Its not his fault that the various pieces and injures have resulted in the Jays stinking ass up until the previous series with the Rays a week ago......as a GM, he did exactly what was expected, build a "championship Contender".....don't forget that before the season started the Jays were ranked most likely (odds wise, i think it was 1 in 4) to win the 2013 World Series.....

extremely successful? Being ranked a championship contender isn't the same as being a championship contender. Too much hype was given for the moves he made but the warts are showing. Isn't this similar to Colangelo?

Can I read into it too? Let's guess, BC will be here for 4 more years. They'll pick up his option and give him a few more years. Makes sense as who is going to lay claim to this team- as it will be this way for awhile.

Also, a core of who did BC say? KL,DD,RG and JV. Posters should be happy and then wonder who our PF is going to be Seems Amir will come off the bench again - which is a good thing imo.

Indecision is the mark of mediocre business management. The longer the Raptors decision-makers linger over whether to pick up the option on General Manager Bryan Colangelo’s contract the more damage they will do to their franchise not only from the performance standpoint on the court but from public perception as well.

I understand their slowness—they want to take the necessary time to make the proper decision. I just don’t agree that taking their time is doing anyone in the organization any good.

It seems fairly obvious that through the negotiating process with Tim Leiweke MLSE had to guarantee the new poobah complete control of the basketball division. Thus any decision on the vital position of General Manager would have to go through him—and since he just signed his own contract he hadn’t had the time to analyze the situation from his own perspective. In the meantime the growth of a club, about to enter the most crucial season in its rebuilt path to the playoffs, is being stunted.

Is it arrogance? Is it the actions, or inactions, of a highly egocentric businessman afraid to make his first mistake? Whichever direction he chooses could turn out wrong, so instead of making the wrong decision he does the only other thing someone who can’t be wrong does—he does nothing. And so the organization waits, the city waits, Colangelo and Casey wait— everyone waits for Leiweke to decide.

So why the delay? Leiweke is looking at options. He would like Phil Jackson but may not have the position suited for him. He may be looking at other high profile executives but may not be able to meet their demands. So Leiweke sits.

But Leiweke is high visibility. He believes in image and self-promotion and has to believe that having Jackson in the organization, in any capacity would do wonders for the image of the Raptors and the reputation of the new company poobah.

Wow, talk about a reporter that knows shit about business and making assumptions that's inflammatory - good for paper sales I guess. Jeeze, Tim hasn't even officially started yet, not till June 30. Just saying

I don't know TL, but I can tell from a million miles away this is a completely assinine statement in the article. There's more but just saying..

Sam Amico*@SamAmicoFSOWord of Toronto suggests this very well could be Bryan Colangelo's final week as Raptors GM. And no, Phil Jackson won't be replacing him.
