    As for Tannenbaum, he's always been the face of ownership for Toronto sports since I was a kid. Good or bad, you can't discount that.
    He was talking about the whole Toronto sports scene, not just Toronto.

    Leiweke and Masai's roles are a little different though. Masai had to deal with the basketball operations side of things when he was hired while Leiweke was (supposed to be) involved in the managing of the corporation so he was involved in managing the sports teams along with the commercial real estate side of MLSE. He seemed to be a little more involved in the sports side though, probably by design since Larry is the chairman of MLSE. I'm sure if Larry headed MLSE directly that he would focus on the spots side considering he was such a fanatic.

    You usually don't see it work out like that. Like Rogers usually just deals with the financial aspect of the Blue Jays. They don't seem to get involved too much and the baseball operations side usually ended at Beeston/Shapiro. Doubt the head of Rogers Media (the subsiduary that owns the Blue Jays) gets involved in the decisions on the field or that Edward S. Rogers III hired the head of that division for the purpose of being involved in baseball operations.

    I'd put Tim high up there, just not #1.

    IT returns tonight! Will be interesting to see how they use him.

    Giannis’ comments about picking James first is hilarious.

    “First of all, if my teammates are available, I’m going with my teammate.

    “But if not, I got to go with LeBron James, best player in the world, so we could have a good relationship for the free agency.

    Miami could potentially get the third seed. I doubt the Cavs finish 4th but the standings are intriguing.

    Nice!!

    Does Lowry make it as a reserve? I think he might miss this year.
