The Future Begins Today


So, here we are, one game into the Finals, 20 something days away from the draft, and taking the first major step in building the "New Toronto Raptors."

 

With the decision to replace Jay Triano announced today, and talk of finding a coach of experience, reputation, and DEFENSE, Raptor fans can begin to seriously believe in a brighter future.

 

Who will take over Colangelo's collection of youth, talent, projects and pieces? Well, we just don't know.

What we do know is that change is upon us.

 

Will the team find a new coach in time to have his input on the upcoming draft?

Will the player drafted help to further demonstrate a willingness by Colangelo to redefine the stigma of the "soft team" that he has assembled to date? Will suspicious fans have their fears confirmed with the drafting of another "Euro-All Star", NBA bust?

How about this tidbit of thought? It was also announced today that Minnesota has come to an agreement with Ricky Rubio to play next season, to play in the NBA to clarify. Can Colangelo work some magic, moving Jose to mentor the young padawin in the ways of the force? ... er the NBA...? Could he somehow coerce their number two pick to be included in such a deal? "This is not the pick you're looking for..."

 

One can only dream, for now. We are fast approaching a pivotal and exciting time in our franchise's history.

 

The King is dead. Long live the King!

 

A new era may well be upon us.
