Colangelo Brings Credibility

If news reports are correct, the Toronto Craptors just took a big step in the right direction. They have hired Phoenix Suns president and general manager, Bryan Colangelo:
Colangelo resigned Monday and is expected to join the Toronto Raptors as president and general manager Tuesday. He'll replace Rob Babcock, fired Jan. 26 by the Raptors.
Colangelo is the architect behind the high-flying Suns team. He was responsible for trading head case Stephon Marbury and Penny Hardaway's gimpy knees, and signing reigning NBA MVP Steve Nash. Colangelo's moves transformed a 29-53 team into 52-30 division champions and Western Conference playoff finalists, and won him the NBA's Executive of the Year award.

Toronto already boasts a promising lineup including all-star Chris Bosh and up-and-comer Mike James. And now with Colangelo at the helm, the team just got a lot better.
