240-318. That is the Toronto Raptors win-loss record in seven seasons since Bryan Colangelo took over as the teams President and General Manager. In that time the Raptors have just one winning season to speak of. Theyve won three playoff games in just two postseason appearances. You can argue that after seven years of faithful service to the organization Colangelo is entitled to nothing. But youd be wrong. He is entitled to respect. The two-time Executive of the Year was hailed as a franchise saviour when he was lured away from the Phoenix Suns and brought to town in February of 2006. He was supposed to bring NBA legitimacy to a city that desperately craved it, and a fan base that had been teased - only briefly - with the taste of success. Fast forward to 2013. That taste has turned bitter. The results, division title aside, have fallen well below expectations and the promise of building a winner in Toronto has fallen on skeptical ears. Here we sit, the franchise at another crossroads as Colangelo -- like everybody else -- awaits the next step, the chosen path. In many ways this is the calm before what appears to be an inevitable storm. Throughout his tenure Colangelo, a beacon of class and professionalism, has represented the front office in a way any ideal executive should. He has and continues to treat the city, its fans and media alike with respect. In terms of his work, he hasnt been shy, swinging for the fences and engineering the type of bold moves hes become synonymous with. Agree or disagree with his personnel decisions, his unwavering dedication to the job has been commendable. In the end its a results driven business and the results have not been good. The Raptors GM knows that as well as anyone. He may be given one final opportunity to deliver those results in the option year of his contract. He may not. In either scenario there should have been a better, quicker way of coming to a resolution. Nearly four weeks ago Colangelo addressed the media in his annual season ending post-mortem. For over 38 minutes he answered questions regarding the immediate and long-term future of the team, its players and coach without knowing where his own fate in the organization lied. Now he and his staff head to Chicago for a draft combine that begins on Thursday. There -- assuming a resolution has not been made by this point -- hell represent a team (likely) without a pick, a team he may not even be a part of when the draft takes place in late June. The question is, who steps in to do right by the GM? Thats where things get tricky. Tim Leiweke, the incoming CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, owes Colangelo nothing. Unofficially, hes been on the job for just over two weeks. Officially he wont take over until June 30. Understandably, his allegiance is to this franchise and its future, as he sees it, not to GM he inherited. It is widely believed that the MLSE board has ceded the decision making to its new chief executive. Its Leiwekes call to make, whenever he is ready to make it. Many believe a resolution is just around the corner. Leiweke has been weighing his options, doing his due diligence and could presumably be seeking out potential alternatives should he decide to steer the franchise in a new direction. Although it remains plausible that Colangelos one-year option is picked up, that scenario appears to be a fallback at this point. If that was "Plan A", wouldnt it be done by now? Some have speculated that Colangelo could take his fate in his own hands and resign. It shouldnt come to that. Colangelos seven-year tenure with the Raptors has been a roller coaster. Despite all the bumps, drops and turns he remains one of the most well regarded executives in the association. If his time in Toronto is nearing its end no one should be surprised, these marriages tend to expire in the absence of sustained success, but how long can you keep the GM in limbo? He deserves better. Tarell Basham Jersey. Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. Quincy Wilson Womens Jersey. McPhee said that Ovechkins father Mikhail is in stable condition after having the surgery this week and is no longer in intensive care. "Weve told him to stay as long as necessary with your dad," he said. Ovechkin and his Russian national team were eliminated from the mens hockey tournament in Sochi on Wednesday with a 3-1 quarter-final loss to Finland. http://www.coltsproshopnfl.com/AUTHENTIC-QUINCY-WILSON-COLTS-JERSEY/. "Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. Malik Hooker Jersey. After Gasquet beat fifth-seeded Ivan Dodig of Croatia 7-5, 6-3, Tsonga followed up with a 6-7 (3), 6-2, 6-2 win against sixth-seeded Edouard Roger-Vasselin in an all-French match. Tarell Basham Womens Jersey. It was the second consecutive win for the Pacers (2-5), who lost their first five preseason games. Jeff Teague led the Hawks (1-5) with 17 points and eight assists and Al Horford had 12 points and seven rebounds. Mike Scott scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half. LEVI, Finland -- Even with less pre-season slalom training than usual, American skier Mikaela Shiffrin keeps dominating her favorite discipline.The Olympic and world champion shifted her focus in practice to super-G and even downhill, but her reign in the slalom discipline has remained unaffected.Shiffrin held on to a comfortable opening-run lead to win the first womens World Cup slalom of the season on Saturday.She finished in a two-run combined time of 1 minute, 52.71 seconds, 0.67 ahead of Switzerlands Wendy Holdener. Slovakias Petra Vlhova came 0.75 back in third.Now I almost feel like I wish there was more time before the next races so I could train more and improve more, Shiffrin said about increasing the number of speed events on her schedule.The rest of Saturdays field trailed Shiffrin by at least a second, while Swedens Frida Hansdotter, who was runner-up after the opening leg, failed to finish her second run.I am never confident, really, said Shiffrin, who has won all nine slaloms that she has competed in since February 2015. However, Hansdotter took the slalom title last season as Shiffrin missed five races because of a knee injury.Shiffrins ninth consecutive win left her one short of Janica Kostelics record. The Croatian great won 10 straight slaloms that she competed in between December 1999 and February 2001.Still, Shiffrin wouldnt take anything for granted, referring to the strength of her challengers.Frida went out, and Wendy skied really strong but she had a huge mistake the first run, the American said. Without that mistake she would have been even faster, and Petra was really good as well.The victory in northern Finland earned Shiffrin an usual prize -- a reindeer. Shee got one from her previous win here in 2013 and called him `Rudolph.dddddddddddd. This time she was going to call him `Sven -- after the reindeer from the movie Frozen.It was Shiffrins 21st career win and 20th in slalom, matching Kostelics number of wins. Only Austrias Marlies Raich (35) and Swiss pair Vreni Schneider (34) and Erika Hess (21) won more slaloms.Racing down the slope in the orange glow of the setting Arctic sun, Shiffrin took a 0.72-second lead over Hansdotter and Holdener, who shared second place after the opening run.While Holdener put pressure on Shiffrin with a near-flawless second attempt, Hansdotter straddled a gate when she entered the steep pitch and failed to finish.Shiffrin wasnt clean from the start of her final run and had lost 0.13 on Holdener at the first split, but the American accelerated to extend her lead to 0.92 before avoiding risks in the final part of her run.The victory gave Shiffrin, who placed second in the season-opening GS last month, the lead in the overall standings with 180 points, 80 clear of Lara Gut.The overall champion from Switzerland won the race last month but usually does not compete in slaloms.The 18-year-old Melanie Meillard of Switzerland, who was competing in her fourth World Cup race, started in 40th but finished sixth, 1.87 off the lead.Austrias Bernadette Schild, younger sister of retired slalom great Marlies Raich, failed to qualify for the second run after damaging the edge of a ski early in her run and finishing 3.92 seconds behind Shiffrin.A mens slalom on the same course is scheduled for Sunday.
