That's a bad sign right there. I'm going to choose to ignore it.

And I can see Colangelo thinking the same thing.

Yeah, at this point I'd most definitely want to slap Hollinger in the head. Is he trying to shame the teams involved? It's no LeBron, Wade and Bosh.. guy has to go ahead and try to reign on the parade.

Hollinger's approval doesn't strike me as a positive sign. But I am simply ignoring it. Which isn't hard. It's Hollinger.

This is a guy who pretty much criticized every move colangelo made, so for him to call it a heist it means it's a really fantastic trade ....;

I don't know. Getting rid of two bad contracts owing 80Mil over 4yrs and replacing them with contracts owing 45 Mil over 2yrs with the biggest one coming off the books in a year. Highway robbery. Riley just threwmoney at 3 players, to me that's not a heist, smart yes.

Riley packaged players with draft picks so he could sign 2 players that planned to play together and the organization had their ear in the Olympics. Also had nothing to do with a team

BC had to convince 2 teams to take players (with lengthy contracts) that were publicly bashed for either not trying or being the worst defensive PG in the league

I guess that's one way to look at it. I still have to think it would mess with Colangelo's head a bit.

The media is as shallow as a puddle on a sunny day! I close my eyes, plug my ears and make funny sounds during commercials! suffering from a serious case of commercaphobia, caused by the repetitive bullshit fed to me via TV. Doctor's working on it.
