Alex Anthopoulos. Honestly we need a gm like that who's actually a true fan of the game and knows how to build with young talent and eventually turn it into a contender through trades.

For sure, a GM who can stash young players in the minors for years, to develop them as trade chips.

More so...Leo Rautins signs Andy Rautins to a 5 year 50million contract.
Leo Rautins signs Leandro Barbosa to a 3 year 20million contract - "When I was a Coach for the national team, he burned us and showed how much of a valuable player he can be"
Leo Rautins signs Mengske Bateer to a 2 year 5million contract "He was a 7 footer out there...that's a 7 footer out there"
Okay Ive had my fun.

LOL I cant believe BC compared Fields to Shane Battier to sell fans on his garbage contract. We should've gone after AK47 like I wanted to. If he doesnt make up for his mistakes (in a huge way) before the trade deadline... this guy needs to go.

An another two point game for the Glue Guy Landry Fields. I was the harshest critic of this signing in the offseason, and the Colangelo apologists took me to task in the summer saying he was a bargain (LOL). You are going to love this link from July my friend, where Colangelo calls Fields a very valuable piece (LOL).

By the way our next GM should be RC Buford from San Antonio. Make him an offer he can not refuse to be our GM. Hopefully he will bring the entire San Antonio front office with him. Offer him the moon and i am sure he will accept.

its time we got a well established winning gm & coach duo - at this point - BC is no different than Babcock. and casey is lame duck coach - i will be shocked if either returns next season.
