Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo Calls the Team’s Play ‘Embarrassing’

Raptors Team President and General Manager Bryan Colangelo basically reiterated what everybody else was already thinking—that his squad has been downright awful this season. Maybe it’s time to work the phones a little? Via the Toronto Star: “On the sun-baked campus of UCLA, with the players and coaches wandering to the bus after a couple of hours of practice, Bryan Colangelo summed up the state of the Raptors with little equivocation. ‘This situation is, from all standards, unacceptable,’ the team’s president and general manager said. ‘It’s disappointing, it’s embarrassing but this is where we find ourselves.’ Where the Raptors find themselves is in a funk of unimaginable proportions. They’ve reached the quarter mark of the NBA regular season with a dismal 4-16 record, they’ve lost nine of their last 10 games and the capitulation in Friday’s 131-99 drubbing in Salt Lake City was cause for enough concern that players and coaches held a 25-minute soul-searching session immediately after the game. ‘It’s obviously something we are addressing, we continue to look and evaluate. Again, 4-16 is unacceptable,’ Colangelo said.”
