Chisholm: Colangelo's move to have big impact on Raptors

It looks like the sun has finally set on the Bryan Colangelo era in Toronto. After a weeks-long dance, the club announced on Tuesday that Colangelo will be stripped of his general manager title and will now serve exclusively as the team's president, a shift that will see him lose the power to influence the decision-making process as it relates to players and coaches. The incoming general manager, who will purportedly be hired within a month, will report directly to MLSE president and CEO Tim Leiweke. ...more

Chisholm: Leiweke's challenge to make Raptors relevant

Relevancy. It has eluded the Toronto Raptors for nearly twenty years. Even more than competitive basketball, relevancy has been the brass ring that the Raptors have never quite been able to reach.

After a string of disastrous and high-profile misfires, it's hard to find a person who follows the team from afar who believes that Colangelo should still have a job with the Raptors.

Chisholm: Raps are same ol' club with a bunch of new players

These new Toronto Raptors, Dwane Casey's Raptors, were supposed to become defensive juggernauts. They were supposed to ascend the NBA ladder on the back of their stopping power. They were supposed to be the New Raptors, but two years in and they're just the same ol' club with a bunch of new players. Tim Chisholm has more. ...more

Chisholm: Season in Review - The Bigs

Who had a bigger impact on Toronto's season: Andrea Bargnani or Amir Johnson? Well, in my opinion they existed on opposite ends of the spectrum for the club. Bargnani existed on the negative end, while Johnson was nothing but a positive. ...more

Chisholm: Season in Review - The Wings

$122.1 million. That's how much money the Toronto Raptors committed to their wing rotation over the last ten months. With the trade for Rudy Gay, the extension for DeMar DeRozan, the offer sheet for Landry Fields and the drafting of Terrence Ross, the Raptors coughed up an eye-popping sum for a total of zero All-Stars, a combined 43.1 per cent shooting percentage and for four players outside the top 100 in offensive and defensive rating. ...more

Chisholm: Season in Review - The Guards

If you want an idea of how much upheaval this team has experienced since last season, the guards are where to look.

Today, there is only one name to mention, and that's Kyle Lowry. ...more

Chisholm: When does patience become delusion?

Chisholm: Looking at Lowry's struggles this season
