Ahh right, he helped coach Bynum, I had forgotten about that. And it seems he had a few other big men coaching jobs. Who knows. Maybe he'd be good.

Are you nuts? It's a perfect set-up for Masai to be under the radar. Everybody is paying attention to what TL says, and Masai can just be quietly doing what he does.

I don't think Masai is worried about attention.. It's about keeping plans close to the vest, which seems to be Masai's m.o. Although, who knows, maybe Leiweke is just BSing and Masai is still keeping options open.

Well, Doug Smith feels better now. lol

And the one thing I was glad to hear was him suggest that he indeed didnít treat Bryan Colangelo as well as he should have when that departure was happening.

I think Timís over-exuberance at making the change atop HOTH World got a bit in the way, his excitement to start something new with Masai Ujiri made it look like he was gleeful at dumping Bryan and a couple of shots that were taken were actually regrettable.

It was good to hear him admit that he came on too strongly, it was hugely important to me to hear him be conciliatory toward Bryan, who did the very best he could in seven years and deserved better on the way out.

I think it was important for him to see Tim recognizing Canadian sensibilities, which is pretty cool really. Good on him.

Who does Doug Smith think he is? Why would it be important for the typical Raptor fan for him to feel better about Colangelo being canned and how it went down. That part is so irrelevant.

Where did he say that it was important to any Raptors fan? He said it was important to him. He was critical of the approach, and he had every right to express that criticism. And Lieweke has now shown that the criticism was accepted with a small gesture towards rectifying it.

Considering he's publishing it in a newspaper read by Raptors fans, etc, he seemed to think it was important to mention. It's not like he told his dad over lunch. He's a journalist, his opinion shouldn't really matter. And I can't imagine why he thought it was worthy of putting in an article.

I agree, this guy always shows his biases and injects himself into the crap he writes all the time. Just like saying last week that the Raptors traded the wrong PG.....what's the point of saying that at this point? He always had a thing for Calderon and to a lesser extent Colangelo and it was blatantly obvious. His articles are as much comedy as anything else.

It was in a blog. Leiweke made it public, not him. He responded by accepting what Leiweke had offered. In a blog, where a lot of people asked him what his opinion was.

Doug smith plays the game.. says great things about Calderon and Colangelo because they obviously fed him info. He may trash talk TL (or do it by defending the other 2) but TL will never tell him anything anyway. Notice he hasn't said one bad thing about MU.

I think he just knows where his bread is buttered.

unless you think doug is not aware colangelo and jose are gone, you are contradicting yourself. Surely if he's doing this for people who butter his bread, he wouldn't do/say anything to antagonize the new butter master, would he?

why is it so hard to believe that some people have a different view on things, maybe doug genuinely believes jose was better than lowry and bc wasn't the monster some make him out to be. Even if he's wrong, that doesn't make him a self-interested bastard.

basketball is far from an exact science, so many times what you believe it's really just that, a belief - it's not proven or even provable truth. I find it sad that so many people discuss basketball almost like some discuss religion or politics. Very little room for non-dogmatic opinions ...

oh, and yeah, a journalist expressing opinions - the outrage! In a blog nonetheless ... you know, a medium developed for people to speak out their mind about things they care about.
