  • Everything Bobby Webster

    I guess it's time for this. I tried the search function and couldn't find an existing thread.

    MUST READ: Searching for Bobby Webster

    https://theathletic.com/1436139/2019...s-win-a-title/

    Hard to believe that Toronto has Ujiri and Webster in the same front office.

    Blessed.

    Too early for this thread. Masai ain't going nowhere. Let's not even think that's possible.

      Hey man, we had an everything Bruno thread before he learned how to speak English. It's never too early

      I have no idea how much responsibility actually falls on Bobby's shoulders, but I just hope that Masai's succession plan is well into place. Whether it's 2021 or sometime farther into the future, Masai won't be in Toronto forever.

          Bobby's very deserving of his own thread, and that has nothing to do with Masai's future, one way or the other.

          Bobby's still our present day, Championship-winning GM. Some repsect for the man, please. lol

            Ok, then how about if we start pumping up Bobby Webster as the real brains behind Masai and trade him to the Knicks for: RJ Barrett, Mitch Robinson and 4 unprotected first-rounders. Dolan would fall for that, right?

              Bobby was the guy on the phone in those later hours during summer camp where he got us Kawhi and Danny for DeMar and Poeltl. So yeah, he deserves kudos for that.

              Tolzman was the guy that scouted Fred, Pascal and Norm. Without those guys maybe we don't have the depth to win it all.

              It's not just Masai, it's a team.. but Masai was the guy who put the team together and spelled out his vision. And it doesn't always work out when they leave. Weltman was Masai's right hand man and has not really made any sort of tangible impact in Orlando yet.

              I hope if Masai ever leaves, we don't leave the organization in Bobby's hands. I hope MLSE gets a capable president to replace him. A true leader. Bobby may not be one and that's okay. He doesn't have to be right. Not everyone can lead. And a really bad mistake is promoting a guy into a leadership role that can't lead. Yet it happens a lot.

                I was just going to start a thread … It seems Bobby Webster gets no props for anything good that is happening to the Raptors .. I wonder what his mind set is for this market .. He does good things but I bet some Raptor fans don't even know he is the GM .

                  That's partially on the Raps front office or ownership or else the way Webster wants it. Put him front and centre for a few interviews or a weekly radio call-in show if they/he wants more exposure. Agreed he's doing a great job

                    That article goes into all that. Webster prefers to be out of the spotlight. Pretty ideal set-up for him right now. Question will be whether he ends up wanting a bigger role (top dog) at some point, and if the timing of that coincides with whenever Masai does decide to do something else or go somewhere else.

                      He is the GM. I have no reason to believe that Masai is still in there taking care of all the details of the General Managers role. I believe that Bobby is truly an active General Manager. If the article is accurate, he has all the knowledge and skills to be a top GM in the league and, based on results, he is one. Unless people think that Nurse consults with Masai on everything and it's actually Masai on the phone working out trade deals, there is no reason to diminish Websters role. And before I believed Masai was running the show from some secret control center, I would want to see some proof.

                        What if all this recent subtle Bobby Webster promotion is because masai is going to leave and Webster will be the new face of the Raptors?
