The previous post was right. Colangelo came into a perfect rebuilding situation and bungled it almost right from the start. He had some bad luck too (Horford breaking Ford) but it's mostly on him and his awful management.
quick short term fixes do not work. They eventually catch up with you and BC is paying for them now. This is true in every facet of our lives. Problem is, we live in a world where the average fan only cares about what is happening now and does not care about the long term effects. For all we know, BC could sign another FA in the offseason and the raps may make the 7th or 8th spot next season. Fans will be happy, MLSE will sell tickets and everyone will be parading of how great BC is at turning a franchise around. And then we will be back to where we are now.
For example, look at the Dodgers in MLB now. The ownership started off with borrowed money to purchase the team and kept borrowing money. Eventually other problems happened (ownership divorce) and they got caught. Now the league is left to take care of the situation.
