If Masai didn't have Bobby Webster and his relationship with the Spurs AGM, Masai would be seen as a gigantic failure.
Dude you literally said Horst is a better GM than Masai. What has Horst done over the past 7 years? Milwaukee made the ECF and just got destroyed in the 2nd round. You literally claimed "Horst" is absolutely better than Masai.
You claimed that Olshey is a better GM than Masai. What has Olshey accomplished? Portland barely made the playoffs this year and their core is maxed out. They don't have any great young pieces on their time either.
What has Morey accomplished? Harden still hasn't even reached the finals and they don't have any cap room to work with.
You need to take some reading comprehension classes. I said Ainge, Riley, Nelson, Myers, and Buford are definitively better. Everyone else listed I said could be debatable, but personally I have them above Masai for the most part.
If the Bucks ownership wasn't cheap and kept Brogdon the Bucks are in the ECF. Portland was literally just in the WCF last year and barely made the playoffs this year because of injuries. Morey assembled the team that gave the super powered Warriors their biggest test.
So you are literally speaking in idiotic hypotheticals.
Bucks management made a terrible mistake overpaying Bledsoe. Why don't you acknowledge that colossal error? Their entire team are literally reliant on Giannis. Yes, the Bucks struck gold with him but they havn't exactly built a great core around him.
Portland has been a widely inconsistent team. In 2017 they only won 41 games and got knocked in the first round. In 2018 they had the 3rd seed and got swept by a mediocore Pelicans team that was missing Cousins. I mean how ridiculous are you to say that Portland's management is better than Masai. Injuries are part of the game. We had a ton of injuries this year, but had a very balanced and deep team that was still on pace for 60 wins.
Morey's team last year blew a 2-0 lead to the Warriors EVEN WITH KD BEING HURT.
You said that Masai is in the 9th or 10th best GM with ZERO justification.
You are pathetic.
Facts are facts:
Raptors have the best record in the NBA since 2016.
Raptors have the most 50+ win seasons since 2015.
Raptors have made the playoffs 7 straight seasons.
Raptors have a championship, an ECF appearance, and 4 semi-finals appearances.
Please justify the GMs that you listed above Masai have had a better resume of the past 7 seasons.
