    Colangelo on Brady & Lang

    Audio: http://www.sportsnet.ca/590/ (Fast forward to 13:20 mark)

    Recap I stole from another forum for those of you at work:

    - Talking with Jose after the deal was made was very difficult because they've built such a friendship.. really defending Jose's contract and how he is often wrongly criticized.
    - Ed is a great young man, at the beginning of the season Ed wouldn't have been a target for other teams in trades but really progressed
    - Thinks Lowry will benefit most from the trade as Lowry is officially''the guy'. No more PG controversy and BC thinks that was really affecting the team
    - Thinks Gay will help with the running game and the pace will probably pick up - exciting basketball
    - Trade doesn't change his stance on Bargnani - talks again that it might be time to trade Andrea after talking with Andrea and his agent but that does NOT mean they will trade him just to make a trade; need value
    - Thinks Andrea is going to be rejuvinated when he comes back from injury - maybe enough to create trade talks again (handful of teams already interested)
    - Says cap space situation doesn't change at all. The Raptors were going to be at the cap anyways and could have used the MLE. Says ownership is committed to spending and the Raptors will still look to be buying in the offseason (they'll be just over the tax right now)
    - At the start of the season BC and MLSE come up with a plan and set a money limit as to how much will be spent in the year. BC met with the board and they let him make the deal
    - On end of Hawks game.. that's number 4, bad call, official was out of position and the bottom line is that no matter what the process is for complaints we're not going to get the W back. If we get all 4 W's back, we'd be right in the thick of the playoff race.
    - Supports that Casey went off last night after the game


    SWAGUEZ!!!

    Maybe we won't make the playoffs and Stern will realize how much he owes us and give us the #1 pick.

    Thanks a bunch for the update. I can't stream anything at work but I've been posting and reading non-stop since yesterday morning. I'm so friggin excited.
    About the calls.... it's getting kind of ridiculous. I mean, I HATE blaming refs but the fact that I've hardly ever seen the league admit reffing mistakes yet turn around and put out the statements it has..... damn. I don't think we need the calls in our favor, just give us the benefit of the doubt ONCE at the end of a game.

    I don't have time to listen to the podcast, but did they really say this?


    "" - On end of Hawks game.. that's number 4, bad call, official was out of position and the bottom line is that no matter what the process is for complaints we're not going to get the W back. If we get all 4 W's back, we'd be right in the thick of the playoff race. ""

    This team is really desperate for that 8th spot. Personally, I don't think we even have to make the playoffs to show progress. Everyone knows that we just acquired Gay and we are almost 50 games into the season at 14 under. It's just not likely now, no matter how well we play.

    Unless we finish bottom 4 in the league that is impossible. And I can't see us possibly finishing that low.

    BC loves perfect-world hypotheticals. If only we got those 4 Ws back, if only Bargnani could have played more than 13 games last year, he would have been an All Star ...

    I still remember him saying how if they had Garbajosa for that playoff series against the Nets, they would have won. And also how if the team didn't have so many injuries, they would have been better the last 2 years

    Bargnani playing 13 games is because of injury, something that happens and is supposed to happen to players in the NBA, especially to injury prone players. You can't complain when it happens, it's part of the game.

    But referees blowing obvious calls, not just once but 4 times to the same team, even after the league has admitted to it, is completely unacceptable. He has the right to "perfect-world hypotheticals" in this case because really, it's not a perfect-world hypothetical it's a normal-world hypothetical. How the referees have called games with the Raptors (and Mavericks) this season is just unfair, they seem to have some subconscious bias towards us and it needs to stop.

    Of course it needs to stop. But what we are seeing here is BC making excuses for missing the playoffs (his foolishly stated goal at the beginning of the season) before they have even missed the playoffs. LOL

    Yeah, its not new for him to do this. As I always say he is a good salesman but eventually people get tired of the excuses when they are constantly sold ****.

    Got to empty the inbox by the way.
