GM who’s twice ripped off Knicks explains Bargnani trade

While the top-seeded, forever-rebuilding 76ers won Tuesday’s NBA Draft Lottery, Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri was the man of Midtown, on the dais to secure the final first-round prize to the 2013 blockbuster trade of Andrea Bargnani to the Knicks. Ujiri chose Manhattan over Cleveland — missing Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals between...

76ers win NBA draft lottery; Raptors will pick ninth

Fittingly, on a day the Raptors finally learned what the return would be for Andrea Bargnani, Bryan Colangelo ended up winning the draft lottery.

NBA Draft Lottery 2016: Raptors snag Knicks pick and will select at number 9

The Raptors are in the Eastern Conference Finals and they also have a top 10 pick. The results of the 2016 NBA Draft Lottery are in and the Raptors, the team competing in the Eastern Conference Finals tonight, will draft at number nine. To quote a great philosopher of our age: what a time to be alive. We'll always, always be able to thank Andrea Bargnani for one thing. No, not the Primo Pasta commercials. I'm talking about this beautiful first round draft pick the New York Knicks were dumb enough to trade Toronto to obtain his services. I realize he had nothing to do with it (except being...
Posting and Toasting May 17, 2016


Mercifully, this should be the last one of these. It better be. Tonight, a bunch of teams who had bad seasons and missed the playoffs will get their lottery picks. The Knicks, who had a bad season and missed the playoffs, will not. They would have swapped lottery picks with the Nuggets, but instead that deal is going to Toronto because New York once traded for fucking Andrea Bargnani. Thus, tonight is the third biannual Player Hater's Ball. I'll sit here praying the teams benefiting from the Knicks' generosity do not benefit beyond expectations and praying that ... well, that the lottery...

The sad path of Knicks’ squandered Bargnani pick

As the NBA lottery ping-pong balls dance on Tuesday night in Midtown, the Knicks and Nets will sadly be sitting out despite also sitting out the playoffs. The only solace for the Knicks is even if they owned their first-round pick, they would not have been able to keep it if their ping-pong ball combination...

Plucking positives from a wild and disappointing Game 1 loss for the Raptors

Well, that was a bit of a throat punch, wasn't it? Let's recollect ourselves and focus on some positive things that can be taken from the Raptors disappointing loss in Game 1 against Miami. Raptors fandom is the business of sadists. Toronto fans have seen it all in 21 seasons. Game 7 misses, 60-loss seasons, first round flops, emigrating stars, Andrea Bargnani - it seems no form of suffering has been left off the table by this franchise. But just when you think the Raptors franchise as reached its peak potential for fan torment, the research and development team comes out with a shiny, new...

Andrea Bargnani - Nets promised me more minutes

Sometimes, international signings don't work out so well. In a Facebook post Wednesday, Andrea Bargnani said he asked for a buyout from the Nets because he didn't get the minutes he had been promised.   He did not say who promised him the minutes ... or how many.  Buying out the Itlalian seven-footer was Sean Marks first move after taking over as GM in February. Translated, Bargnani's post reads... "I chose to leave the Nets and a guaranteed contract because the conditions under which they had convinced me to sign were otherwise and being used with such limited playing time, it made no...
