On the heels of the 76ers getting drubbed (122-98) by the Toronto Raptors last night — a team Bryan Colangelo had a hand in building — we present a close -up look at the new Sixer GM…
After a highly successful but controversial coup by his father Jerry, newly installed General Manager Bryan Colangelo hit the local airwaves on Monday and Tuesday to deliver his message to Philadunkia nation. In his orchestrated media blitz, Colangelo basically continued his my regime is “not about a departure from a strategy” mantra and added that the next phase of the Sixers rebuild will be focused on “sustainable winning”. Tuesday morning on SiriusXMNBA Colangelo continued his media marathon and threw out this zinger, “The time has come to accelerate the process”.
Over the last two days, Colangelo, in general has said all the right things during his numerous appearance on the sports airwaves. A little part of me was actually impressed with his words. However, I still don’t believe he is the right man for finishing “The Process” and leading this franchise back to relevancy. So today in an effort to get a less biased opinion of Colangelo, we turn to our colleague Sam Holako of raptorsrepublic.com to help us examine Colangelo’s time in Toronto.
