    Masai Ujiri: Look at my track record. Together we can turn this organization into a global brand and make billions!
    Canadian Owner: Well, that's very interesting. Let us think about that, you know, we'll need detailed plans and a risk analyisis and we should probably find some global consultants and, well, this COVID thing, maybe we should wait until that blows over and we can do better projections. Check with our government contacts and better get league sign off cause we don't want to step on any toes and.....

    I don't know how many Canadians are self-aware of how risk-averse our culture is, but it's really apparent in the business world vs the US. And in the general COVID response this past year.
    Hes been trying to give tell us to have more self confidence for years now. Not sure we've been listening.

    This is more about a US/UK trained businessman who is an ambitious risk taker wanting to shoot for the stars and the complacent, lazy, unambitious Canadian company that is more than happy with where it is right now (which in fairness describes 99% of large Canadian companies).

    Great presser. Good time to remember Masai was a major part of pushes to org development that made the Raps a championship franchise - 905, training centre, etc. He wants the org to push to the next level again and they should. They did last time.

    Sounds like Masai wants to the franchise to commit to being a deep tax paying team. Does that really solve our main problem, though, which is: How are we going to convince elite players to come here? Or is the idea to load up the roster with overpaid role players and hope you can win a chip without a legit superstar. Does that even work within the salary cap rules?
    That may be a part of it but he was almost dismissive of it in the presser. If it was just money, then it's simply getting to a number but it seems like the ask is broader than that.

    This is more about a US/UK trained businessman who is an ambitious risk taker wanting to shoot for the stars and the complacent, lazy, unambitious Canadian company that is more than happy with where it is right now (which in fairness describes 99% of large Canadian companies).

    Masai Ujiri says his conversations with ownership about what he wants to see change in Toronto will determine whether he decides to return to the Raptors next season.
