Jack Armsrtong: Time to continue doing what's right

The fact that they now have two No. 1 picks in the 2011 draft and a bit more financial flexibility in the future means they've got a shot (and I emphasize - a shot) to get it right not only for the 2010-11 season but beyond. And more importantly, when you think of why Bryan Colangelo was brought to Toronto, it was to contend in the Eastern Conference on a consistent basis for a top four seed, to go deep in the playoffs, to be the best team in the Eastern Conference and make a run at some point for an NBA Championship.

The Raptors are a long way from those categories but they've now got a shot right here and right now to right the ship and point towards the organizational long-term vision. It's time to continue doing what's "right" for the greater long-term good of franchise and not what is "popular" to appease those who are short-sighted, worrying about contending for an eighth seed.

The moment of truth has arrived, and sometimes you truly find out about a guy when he's up against it. I'm confident we'll find out that he can do it in Toronto, but he must stay focused on the "right" approach vs. worrying about making the "splash" that wins a press conference to quiet the shallow crowd.
