Hollinger: I'm lukewarm on a Colangelo extension
 
Quote:

Jay (Toronto)

Have you heard anything about colangelo's possible extension? Will it happen and do you think he should be extended?

John Hollinger (2:46 PM)

I'm told it's very likely to happen. I'm lukewarm on it; certainly there are worse GMs in the league than Colangelo, but if I were MLSE I wouldn't be giving him a long-term deal and I would really push him to make a more inspired coaching hire.

I love the Raps core (Bargnani, DeRozan, Davis, & Johnson) and believe Calderon is in the to 40% of starting pg's in the NBA - Do you think I'm being overly optimistic about their future?

John Hollinger (2:11 PM)

Yes. The aforementioned core consist of two average players and two others aspiring to someday be average. Calderon is in the top 40% offensively and the bottom 2% defensively. Basically, Toronto has a bunch of decent players, but without a star or two it's going to be tough to move beyond 30 wins.

colangelo makes mlse lots of cash in deals, triano is a cheaper coaching option, and yes we need a stud (which kyrie won't be).... thanks captain obvious.

BC isn't going anywhere, and MLSE will probably hand him whatever extension he wants. He's a business, man.

Don't see any reason to change coaches until we need to win games - which won't be happening with any frequency for a couple years yet. I have no problem with Jay for now - as he seems to be a good developmental coach for young players.

No single player is the solution - need a couple high draft picks, plus a good trade or signing before any real progress can be made (outside of a LBJ type impact player).

John Hollinger: "I've run my statistical analysis and none of Toronto's players have a PER of 20 or higher, so their team sucks. I don't watch games or give a shit about player progress. However, I'll stick to the stock critique of bad teams and suggest it's all the coach's fault. Yes, ESPN does pay me quite well for my expert analysis!"
